Day 5

Depart for Honolulu & Embark Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America (Departs at 7:00pm)

Today your Rose Parade & Hawaii Cruise vacation continues with an included flight to Honolulu and embarkation for your Hawaiian cruise.

Day 6

Kahului, Maui (8:00 AM – Overnight)

Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands and you will have almost 2 full days to explore! Known as the “Valley Isle,” this majestic island has two main peaks more than a mile high, thousands of breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls and pools, 120 miles of shoreline and more than 80 golden beaches. Highlights include Iao Valley, Haleakala Crater, and Lahaina, a traditional old whaling town full of character, shops, and restaurants.

Day 7

Kahului, Maui (Overnight – 6:00 PM)

After the overnight stay in Maui, you may wish to make the journey to the town of Hana. Drive along the gorgeous winding coastal roads as you experience the natural wonder of Maui! For beach lovers, visit the fabulous golden sand beaches of Kaanapali, where between the months of December and March each year you are almost guaranteed to see whales, without even leaving the beach.

Day 8

Hilo, Hawaii (8:00 AM – 6:00 PM)

Brimming with Hawaiian tradition, Hilo takes you back to an earlier island culture. The town will charm you with its quaint buildings and unique shopping. Hilo is the flower capital of Hawaii, and gardens and blossoms are everywhere. Perhaps spend your leisure day here visiting Liliuokalani Gardens, King Kamehameha I Statue, Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falls, or Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden!

Day 9

Kona, Hawaii (7:00 AM – 5:30 PM)

Welcome to Kona! Spend your day exploring the “Gold Coast” in a wide variety of ways—riding in a horse-drawn carriage, skimming the seas in a glass bottom boat, or snorkeling below the waves. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, you may choose to take a leisurely walking tour through historic Kailua Town or one of the many island coffee plantations.

Day 10

Nawiliwili, Kauai (8:00 AM – Overnight)

This verdant little isle exudes peace and tranquility. Nature has been good to Kauai, creating craters, mountains, rivers, canyons, and glorious stretches of palm-fringed beaches. Nicknamed the “Garden Island,” Kauai is the least populated and developed of the four main islands. The spectacular scenery including canyons, cliffs, and waterfalls, makes it a firm favorite to take a helicopter flight-seeing tour!

Day 11

Nawiliwili, Kauai and the Na Pali Coast (Overnight – 2:00 PM)

It’s no wonder that an impressive list of Hollywood productions have used this emerald island as a setting. The Na Pali Coast, featured in the film Jurassic Park and many others, is one of the most distinctive geological features of Kauai. Kauai is famous for Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.

Day 12

Disembark from the Cruise Ship (7:00 AM) and Depart for Home

Transfer to Honolulu airport for your flight home. If you are on a later departing flight from Honolulu, we do offer an optional Island Tour to show you Oahu’s highlights before returning you to the airport. Please note: return flights should be booked for 12 noon or later.
