Travellers looking to experience the exotic ways of Hawaii have 10 Holland America Line (HAL) cruises to choose from between fall 2019 and spring 2020.
Ranging from 16 to 28 days, the itineraries also include Collectors’ Voyages that combine the islands of Hawaii with a taste of the Mexican Riviera.
Each itinerary features an overnight call at Honolulu, providing extra time to visit historic Pearl Harbor, catch a golden sunset on Waikiki Beach, take in the views from Diamond Head State Monument or spend the evening at an authentic luau. The cruises also feature calls in Hilo, Lahaina and Kona. Hawaii sailings are available aboard Eurodam and Oosterdam, and depart from Seattle, Vancouver and San Diego.
“The Hawaiian Islands have long drawn travellers to this magical paradise, offering endless adventure, incomparable beauty and a deep, rich history,” said HAL president Orlando Ashford. “Our extended cruises to Hawaii create a truly immersive experience where guests can take part in authentic traditions, taste local flavours and enjoy activities that fill them with the warmth of the Hawaiian culture and a better understanding of this beautiful part of the world.”
