Get your Hula On

Hawaii, for those of us east of the Mississippi is one of those once in a lifetime or once every few years type of trips.

Our first trip we were there for around 2 weeks and spent 2 days in Honolulu and time on Kauai and the Big Island. 2 week+ vacations are hard to plan for; work & family constraints can make this hard. I love to find the "best bang for the time & money" for my clients.

If you only have a short time and want to see all the islands I would suggest NCL's Pride of America, sailing weekly out of Honolulu. You will get to see all the islands, with overnight stays in Maui and Kauai, plus on the Big Island you will stop in Kona and Hilo. Add a few days pre-cruise in Honolulu and you can see all the islands in 9 days!

For those who would never consider a cruise, here are my top reasons to consider sailing on the Pride of America.

  • You can't see all the islands in 9-10 days. Well you could but mostly you would see the inside of airports and not seeing the unique beauty of each island.

  • Hawaii is expensive Since they are islands, most food supplies must be shipped in, so food is expensive in the islands. With cruising your food is included in your fare, making it easier to stay within your budget.

  • Golfers rejoice Golf on every island and there are plenty of excursions to keep your non-golfing partner or spouse happy!

  • Unpack once, hitting more than 2 islands, packing and repacking becomes a real chore, especially if you are travelling with the kids. This is where your ship is your floating hotel, sit back and enjoy yourself and not worry about leaving something in the 3rd hotel

  • Two stops on the Big Island, Kona is great for hitting Hapuna Beach, a perennial on Dr. Beach’s best beach list. and snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay, while Hilo is much closer to Volcano National Park.

Cruising on the Pride of America, offers you a great way to control your budget, get a taste of all the Hawaiian Island and saves you the headache of repacking and multiple airports.

If you are traveling with a group, there are a variety of accommodations to fit any budget. If you are ready to get your hula on, contact us to plan your Pride of America sailing.
