Aloha Hawaii. Join The Senior and Travelrite as we explore the beautiful Hawaiian islands at their beachcombing best in 2023.
We'll step aboard the luxurious ship, Pride of America for an island odyssey, taking in Kauai, Oahu, Maui and Hawaii.
The fun begins in Honolulu where you will have time to get familiar with Downtown Honolulu city and the world famous beach resort of Waikiki.
We'll enjoy a sightseeing coach tour of O'ahu and be charmed by the trendy beach town of Kailua and Hanauma Bay, famous for its pristine marine ecosystem and known as a great location for snorkelling.
Later in the day, we'll travel through undulating fields of pineapples to the bohemian North Shore surfing town of Hale'iwa.
Visit the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, and USS Arizona Memorial, reached by US Navy operated boat, perched above the sunken ship of the same name.
The USS Arizona went down with a loss of 1177 officers and crew during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
Later enjoy the lovely 'lolani Palace, the only royal palace in the US, where you will be free to roam the delightful grounds.
It's all aboard Pride of America on day five for the start of our seven-night cruise. Prepare to indulge in the ship's outstanding cuisine, including specialty Hawaiian dishes.
The first morning onboard, we arrive at Kahului, Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian islands. A coach tour will take us past lava cliffs, tumbling waterfalls, rugged coastline and lush hillsides of feathery ferns and trees laden with tropical fruits.
The west of the island is next, including the colourful town of Lahaina (until 1845 this small harbour town was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawai'i). We'll also head to the Iao Valley State Park, home to one of Hawaii's most recognisable landmarks, the Iao Needle, a spectacular green-mantled rock outcropping.
Hawai'i is Hawaii's largest island and the towns of Hilo on the eastern side and Kona on the western are both destinations. A guided tour takes in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park that encompasses two of the world's most active volcanoes - Kilauea and Mauna Loa. We'll also explore the island's west coast.
Although hard to separate, and up for debate, many people consider the island of Kaua'i to be Hawaii's most beautiful. Referred to as The Garden Island, nature here is truly the main attraction. You'll see Waimea Canyon, sometimes called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
The many beautiful beaches of Kaua'i are also the stars before the ship departs to cruise along the Napali Coast back to Honolulu.
Once back in Honolulu, we can take in the colour and life of the Saturday Farmers Market at Kapi'alonai Community College before finishing up at one of the city's excellent shopping malls.
The final night is spent at a fabulous hotel in Waikiki where we will enjoy a farewell dinner.
The Hawaiian Islands tour departs April 25, 2023, for 13 nights.
Twin share for the tour starts at $8390 with $3190 added for a single supplement. This includes return economy class flights from Sydney to Honolulu, seven nights onboard Pride of America, four nights accommodation at first class hotels in Honolulu and touring as per itinerary.
