Sail Into Spring: 15-Day Hawaiian Cruise
What better way to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring than cruising to the majestic Hawaiian Islands? We have your ticket to paradise on a 15-day Hawaiian adventure between February 17-March 4, 2015 aboard Princess Cruises. You’re guaranteed to feel the “Aloha Spirit” the moment you step onto the Grand Princess at the Port of Los Angeles. This Grand-class ship is a floating island paradise unto itself offering private balconies in every stateroom, a stunning atrium, an outdoor theater for Movies Under the Stars, a soul-soothing Sanctuary Spa, acclaimed specialty restaurants, luxe lounges, decks and clubs.
With round-trip transfers to and from your front door, a $50 credit to use onboard, pre-paid gratuities, port charges, taxes, and fees taken care of, as well as hosted cocktail receptions included in your fare, there’s few Hawaiian excursions that can match the value of your vacation dollar. While at sea (February 18- 21), everything from themed activities like learning to hula and ukulele classes, to specialty island-style menus and cocktails, and colorful environments on every deck, will make you feel like you’re on the tropical islands before you even get there. Upon arrival, you can explore the Aloha Sate’s most beautiful beaches on the Big Island, Maui, Kauai, and Oahu.
First stop is Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii (February 22).
On your first disembarkation, you’ll dig your toes into famous black-sand beaches, traverse diverse terrain through lush tropical rain forest, a lush “Valley of Kings”, or visit the largest mountain on earth, Mauna Loa. Next, onto Oahu, home to Hawaii’s state capital, Honolulu (February 23). Visit infamous cultural, natural, and historical sites at Pearl Harbor, Iolani Palace, Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, or North Shore. As Hawaii’s only major city, Honolulu offers an array of attractions and activities for all ages to enjoy. The enchanting “Garden Island” of Kauai is the next destination at Nawiliwili (February 24). Now mostly remote, this ecologic gem features varied micro-climates from the volcanic slopes of Mt. Waialeale, to the desert oasis of Waimea Canyon, to Wailua River banks, where at the mouth of this grand river, Captain James Cook first dropped anchor and encountered native Hawaiians in 1778.
The last stop is the legendary island of Maui (February 25), regarded by locals and visitors alike as one of Hawaii’s most special and stunningly beautiful places. You’ll step onto once royal ground in Lahaina, where native Hawaiian nobles ruled and resided. Long stretches of pristine beaches and the marvelous scenery of Haleakala National Park, home to Mt. Haleakala, a dormant volcano rising 10,000 feet above the Pacific, is why the great King Kamehameha chose Maui as Hawaii’s first capital island. From February 26-March 2 you’re back at sea, with an opportunity to decompress and soak in your epic Hawaiian journey. You’ll get to explore more of the Grand Princess, and experience some of the activities, cuisine, and entertainment you may have missed on the outgoing voyage. A one day excursion around Ensenada, Mexico awaits you on March 3, offering warm exotic waters, lively markets, and a festive night life. It’s time to disembark back at the Los Angeles Port on March 4 with a tropical pep in your spring step.
