Hawaii Cruises Highlights

History & culture

Hawaii has a rich history and culture that is deeply rooted in Polynesian traditions. The islands were first settled by Polynesians around 500 AD, who brought with them their language, customs, and beliefs. Later, Hawaii was visited by explorers and traders from around the world, including Captain Cook, who famously met his demise on the island of Hawaii. Today, the Hawaiian culture is a vibrant blend of ancient Polynesian practices and modern influences. The hula dance, for example, is a traditional dance that is accompanied by singing and the playing of musical instruments like the ukulele and guitar.

Food & drink

On a cruise to Hawaii, you absolutely must try local cuisine, which is a mix of flavours and influences from around the world. Start with Poke, probably the most famous Hawaiian dish, which is made from raw fish, vegetables, and seasonings. Another great option would be a popular dish is the plate lunch. It's rice and macaroni salad with chicken or pork. For drinks, Hawaii is famous for its mai tais and other tropical cocktails. These refreshing drinks are made with rum, fruit juices, and other ingredients, and are perfect for a sunny day at the beach.

Featured Hawaii Destinations to visit

Maui

Maui is Hawaii's second-largest island. Maui is a popular cruise destination because of its amazing beaches, and fabulous views. Visitors can explore the scenic Road to Hana, which winds through the island's rugged coastline or hike to the top of Haleakala, a dormant volcano that offers panoramic views of the island.

Oahu

Another popular cruise port in Hawaii is the Island of Oahu, home to the state capital of Honolulu. Visitors can surf the famous waves of Waikiki Beach, explore the historic Pearl Harbor site, or hike to the top of Diamond Head for stunning views of the island

Kauai

If you are a nature lover, we recommend you visit the "Garden Isle," Kauai. You can hike through the stunning Waimea Canyon, also known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," or take a boat tour along the spectacular Napali Coast, a rugged coastline of towering cliffs and waterfalls.

What not to miss in Hawaii

Pearl Harbor

A must-visit for history buffs, Pearl Harbor is a national monument that commemorates the surprise attack by Japan on the U.S. naval base on December 7, 1941. Visitors can take a tour of the USS Arizona Memorial, which rests over the sunken battleship, or explore the museum and exhibits that showcase the events of that fateful day.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

This beautiful park is situated on the Big Island and is a unique natural wonder that offers visitors the opportunity to witness the power and beauty of active volcanoes. Hike through lava fields, witness steam vents and bubbling lava lakes, or take a scenic drive along the Chain of Craters Road.

Hanauma Bay

Located on Oahu, Hanauma Bay is a nature preserve and a popular spot for snorkelling. Visitors can swim alongside colourful fish and sea turtles in the clear turquoise waters of the bay, or relax on the sandy beach and soak up the sun.

Tips for cruising to Hawaii

Currency considerations

When cruising to Hawaii, it's important to be aware of the currency used on the islands. The official currency is the U.S. dollar, so we recommend you exchange currency before arriving on the islands to avoid paying high exchange rates.

Customs and traditions to be aware of

Hawaii has a unique culture and set of customs that visitors should be aware of. For example, it's considered disrespectful to wear shoes inside someone's home, and it's customary to remove them before entering. Visitors should also be respectful of sacred sites and be aware of their behaviour while visiting them.

Making the most use of short durations in port

Cruise ships often have limited time in port, so it's important to plan your activities in advance to make the most of your time on the islands. Consider booking excursions or tours through your cruise line to ensure that you make it back to the ship in time. Alternatively, plan ahead and research the best things to do in each port to make the most of your time on land.

Transport

Transportation options on the islands can be limited, so it's important to plan ahead. Renting a car can be a great option for exploring the islands at your own pace, but be aware of traffic and parking restrictions. Public transportation is available on some islands, but schedules and routes can be limited. Taxis and ride-sharing services are also available but can be expensive.
