Fun Cruises to Hawaii: By Denise Walker
Cruises to Hawaii are excellent get-away trips. You can take your entire family. Or plan a romantic getaway for just the two of you. Either way, you can't go wrong with a Hawaiian cruise.
You are likely to visit Hawaii if you are on a cruise heading to the Pacific. Many travelers visit Hawaii in this fashion. The problem with these cruises is that you never have enough time to really explore the Islands and appreciate the culture.
You can purchase a Hawaiian cruise package that includes a Hawaii-only itinerary. These cruise packages allow you to visit several Hawaiian Islands including Maui, Kauai, Oahu, and the Big Island. You not only experience Hawaiian culture, you live it for as long as you are on the Islands.
The Polynesian Cultural Center is located on Oahu. It is one of the most renowned cultural centers. You can spend an entire day at the Center soaking in the culture. All activities are interactive at the Center, including the shows. You can play a role in a show. The Center hosts an authentic luau and one the largest arts and crafts marketplaces around.
You have a variety of restaurants to visit during your cruise. Be sure to try a mixed selection of Island food. There are so many native Polynesian and Hawaiian dishes you should never have to eat the same thing twice during your visit unless you want to. There are plenty of gift and souvenir shops to explore.
You can also partake in more nature-based activities including snorkeling and kayaking. Surfing and body boarding are popular water activities. If you have children, spend time on the beautiful Hawaiian beaches.
Cruises to Hawaii are popular because you get to see the Hawaiian Islands while enjoying the perks of a cruise package. You don't have to worry about hotel accommodations or land transportation. You stay on the cruise ship at night and all of your land transportation is taken care of through your package. You can participate in guided tours of the Islands or go exploring on your own. You can't go wrong with a cruise to Hawaii.
