When most people think of Honolulu, images of beautiful beaches, hula girls and tropical flowers come to mind and, yes, they’re all here. But it’s also Hawai‘i’s largest city, so if you fancy some slick shopping, dining and bright lights entertainment, it’s got that, too, along with amazing things to see – Diamond Head and famous Waikiki Beach.
Embark Pride of America to start your 7 day cruise of the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
Kahului is Maui’s main city, so it’s got great shopping, galleries and attractions like the Maui Arts & Culture Center. It’s also your gateway to amazing sights. Look up and there’s the 10,000-foot-high summit of Mt. Haleakal¯a, look down there are 33 miles of black and white sand beaches and everywhere you look there are rare orchids and exotic flowers, adding to the romance.
The city of Hilo overlooks beautiful Hilo Bay and is considered the Big Island’s most tropical town (because it’s overflowing with flowers and plants). Conveniently, it sits right between Mauna Lea, the largest volcano on the planet, and Mauna Kea, the only volcano whose top is covered in ice, so when it comes to amazing sightseeing you’re in the right place.
The Big Island is divided in half by three volcanoes. The eastern half is known as the windward side and the western side is the Kona side. You see, Kona means leeward in Hawaiian and that means warm, sunny days year-round. It’s perfect weather for sightseeing, so get out and discover the black sand beaches and green valleys or take to the water by outrigger canoe.
Named after the Wiliwili trees, which once lined its picturesque harbour, this lovely port of Kauai is your gateway to what many believe to be Hawaii's most beautiful island. On "The Garden Island," nature is truly the star, from the dramatic mountains of Kokee to the cool rainforests of Haena. And the tradition of the luau adds lively entertainment unique to Hawaii.
