Star Princess Cruise to Hawaii

Star Princess Cruise to Hawaii

15 Day Cruise!
January 4th 2017
Dear dianne,

Princess cruise to Hawaii!  15 day cruise from
Los Angeles to The Hawaiian Islands!  Jan 4, 2017!

Why settle for one island when you can visit four Pacific gems? With a Princess Hawaiian cruise vacation, you'll enjoy a far better value than on a land-based resort vacation. And getting there by sea is far more exciting than a long plane flight because you'll experience the local color, culture and flavors of the region right on board through our "Aloha Spirit" program activities.

Our signature "Aloha Spirit" onboard programs surround guests with island-inspired events and freshly prepared regional cuisine. Savor kalua duck and macadamia nut cake, delight in the Halau Hula Olana Folkloric Show, and weave a flower lei. Strum a ukulele, then cuddle with your "keikis" (kids) during a Hawaii-inspired film at Movies Under the Stars®.

Invite your friends!  Send to a friend or Colleague!

Hawaii Cruise Basics

Voluptuous women swaying in grass skirts, raging waves dotted by tan surfers on sleek boards, deserted beaches framed by swaying palms, fresh pineapple served alongside roast pork at a rocking luau: Whatever you envision when you think of Hawaii, it's accessible by cruise ship -- and right here in the United States.

The eight major Hawaiian Islands are volcanic, each created from at least one primary volcano. And each is different, with distinct climates and attractions -- an aspect that makes cruising there even more appealing. On a given sailing, you might sail by the dramatic cliffs of Kauai's Napali Coast, sunbathe on Honolulu's bustling Waikiki Beach, reach the volcanic summit of Maui's Haleakala Crater and taste some of the world's best coffee in the verdant hills above Kona.

A voyage to Hawaii presents a tricky situation for cruise lines: To comply with passenger shipping laws, foreign-flagged ships (which most cruise lines have) cannot sail an entirely U.S.-based itinerary without calling in at least one foreign port. Norwegian solved the problem by launching Pride of America, a U.S.-flagged ship with an American crew, which can sail exclusively in the islands; this move was not without added cost and headache to the cruise line, as it initially struggled to solve service issues and attract passengers. Most other major cruise lines fulfill the requirement by sailing out of Vancouver on repositioning sailings, hitting up Ensenada on roundtrip cruises from the North American mainland or visiting Hawaii on longer transpacific sailings.

Regardless of whether you opt for a short or long itinerary, Hawaii is bound to overwhelm you with its bounty of attractions and activities. Because a cruise can only give you a quick taste of island life, don't be surprised if you return home and start planning a longer land vacation to your new favorite port of call.

How Do I Pack for a Hawaiian Cruise?

As with most vacations, it's best to pack light for a Hawaiian cruise. This will not only help avoid airlines' overweight luggage fees but will also leave space for one-of-a-kind Hawaiian souvenirs. Since most cruise lines have shipboard laundry facilities, you can wash any frequently worn items during your trip.

Step 1

Gather your travel documents and put them in a folder you can easily store in your luggage. Essential papers for a Hawaiian cruise include a driver's license or other official photo I.D. (a passport or visa for non-US citizens), airline tickets and cruise documents. It's also wise to bring proof of car insurance so you have the option to rent a car while in port. Any medical insurance cards are also indispensable in the event of illness or medical emergency during your vacation. Stow debit and credit cards in your wallet while keeping credit card information separately. Bring at least a small amount of cash so you don't have to worry about finding at ATM machine upon arrival in Hawaii.
