Your Guide To

Hawaii

An eternal destination which tops the travel lists of many, many people. The island chain was once known as the Sandwich Islands and is not only the longest island chain in the world (2,451km/1,523 miles) but also the furthest island chain from any large land mass! Local language includes a glottal stop or 'okina - Hawai'i!

There are 6 main islands visitors tend to frequent, but not simply because they are popular but moreover, they are the only ones with practical or legal access to tourists. Which one will you explore, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu, or the "Big Island" of Hawaii? They've all got their own local flair, keep exploring to figure out for yourself which one is for you!

Planning Your Trip

There is only one dedicated ship based in Hawaii, Norwegian's Pride of America. Other vessels must embark from the West Coast of North America or elsewhere around the Pacific. That can mean several days at sea, do plan well in those instances to stay entertained!

From filming locations to wildlife & hiking, there's an overwhelming variety of things to see and do among the islands. If you've time to visit Kauai, make sure you get on a helicopter or small plane to really enjoy the views. Likewise, sunrises and sunsets among beaches and secret coves or enjoyed from the peak of a crater in Haleakala... Hawaii also has world-class diving.

When You Should Go

As with many island destinations enjoying warmer climate, the choice of when to visit might best be suited to your personal needs and desires for your travel. Although typically a little cooler than some other months of the year, December through March can be busier, while also seeing a little more rain. A risk of hurricanes exist for the Hawaiian Islands from June through November. Some suggestions for the best weather and fewest crowds may fall in April or May, September or October. For specific seasonal interests, such as scuba diving, surfing, or whale watching, plan with your travel advisor or continue exploring by searching our "Things to do" section below.

November might be the wettest month among the islands, you can expect a few more showers during some of the peak season months in fact. But do plan for several seasons if you're scaling any peaks or exploring the wilds of Kauai.

What Else You Might Need

As Hawaii is part of the United States, visitors holding a US passport may simply be limited by their day to day obligations, such as family life or work. Canadian passport holders may visit as tourists for up to 6 months, although considerable planning and documentation may be required to support a visit of such lengthy duration.

These were some interesting baths to say the least. Don't expect to get clean here but still enjoy the history of the town and connect to another world. Pro tip, you can sample the "cleansing waters" at the end of the tour but be advised, they taste very strongly of sulfur.

An absolute must if you want to see the must beautiful sunset in the world. Great selection of wines, which we paired with a fantastic charcuterie board for a lovely evening. It was all topped with a breath taking sunset that seemed to last forever.

This was such a wildly different beach than any other I've seen before. The water was a great temperature and the rocks were beautiful.

For my first cruise experience this ship lived up to my expectations. Small enough that we never got lost but large enough that you could always find some space to relax with a drink.
