Have you ever dreamed of going to Hawaii and waking up in Paradise? Then join Warther Tours March 1 – 10, 2018 and enjoy the stunning beauty, unspoiled beaches, exotic tropical scenery and fabulous weather that you’ll be sure to experience as we cruise to the four largest islands aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s – “PRIDE OF AMERICA.” For those who wish to stay a little longer, consider the four-daypost cruise tour on the “Big Island” with your host, Jim Nixon.
We’ll be staying the first night in Honolulu – just steps from the world-famous Waikiki Beach, before embarking on our cruise ship the following afternoon. Walk the beach as the sun rises, visit the shops of Waikiki, or explore nearby Pearl Harbor and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
Our first port of call will be Kahuli, Maui. Take in the richness of the lush green mountains on this western side of Maui. Explore Lahaina, one of Hawaii’s oldest cities. Be sure to notice the famous Banyon Tree located in the central part of town. It reaches a height of 50 ft. and extends almost 200 ft. from side to side. Consider taking a Maui Plantation Tour, noted for both sugar and pineapple production. You may also want to take a road trip on “the Road to Hana,” where an expert guide will drive so that you can focus on the stunning views and listen to the history of the area.
We’ll then set sail for Hilo, Hawaii (The BIG Island), where we’ll get to view the stunning NaPali coastline. This lush “greenhouse” greets you with spectacular tropical flowers everywhere you look. While here, we’ll only be 30 miles from the active Kilauea Volcano. Be sure to stand on the deck at night while the ship slowly passes the hot flowing lava (conditions permitting).
Next, we’re off to Kona, Hawaii where the sunny warm weather and crystal blue waters entice visitors to partake in a variety of surfside fun. Here you may want to try snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, or even some deep-sea fishing.
Our last port of call will be Nawilliwili, Kaual, named after the Wiliwili trees. Many people believe that this is Hawaii’s most beautiful island. It is often called “The Garden Island” because it is home to wildly verdant landscapes, oxygen-rich air, and utter serenity. 97% of its land is composed of undeveloped mountain ranges and rainforests. Don’t miss the Luau Kalamaku and Plantation train where we’ll be sure to enjoy both hula and fire dancers while dining at a lavish luau.
From World War II history, fiery volcanoes, lush rainforests, tropical waterfalls, or exotic coastlines, you’ll see that this island state is certainly divers. After this 7 night Hawaiian Cruise, those heading home will be sure to have “Memories, that light the corners of their minds” for many months to come.
If you decided to add on the four-day tour package, we’ll get transported to the local airport for a short flight to “THE BIG ISLAND” where Jim Nixon will greet us with a traditional Hawaiian LEI. For three nights, we’ll stay at the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay.
Our first day will take us to the National Historic site of “Place of Refuge,” the “Painted Church” and a tour of “Kona Joe,” a Coffee Plantation. Tonight, we’ll take a dinner cruise along the beautiful Kona coast while enjoying some traditional Hawaiian entertainment. Be sure to scan the water as spinner dolphins are often spotted along the coastline.
The next day is yours to relax and enjoy your time at the beautiful Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa. Dinner will be a traditional luau; complete with poi, kalua pig, loom salmon, and all the extras which add to its charm. After our dinner feast, we’ll be treated to some true Hawaiian entertainment featuring music, hula and fire dancing and much more!
We’ll have one more morning to enjoy some beach time, before heading east for home.
