Sail through the breathtaking scenery of the Hawaiian Islands on this magical vacation. The highlight of your trip is a 7-night cruise around the Hawaiian Islands aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America.

Maui, one of the stops on this cruise, has been voted the best island in the world, and you’ll have a chance to experience its breathtaking scenery, wonderful beaches, cascading waterfalls, and charming Hawaiian towns. The Big Island of Hawaii offers black-sand beaches, curious lava formations, the world’s most continuously active volcano, fields of coffee and macadamia nuts, and more.

PATRICIA VAN EVERY

Years of Experience: 13 years

I've always been a traveler, and have traveled around the world looking for adventure. I came to the Hawaiian Islands in the early `90s and knew immediately that this was home. Most people think Hawaii is all about beaches and surfing, but that's only one side. The islands have a rich history that started even before Pearl Harbor. People are transformed when they embrace Hawaii- I love to see that.
