Follow Us To - Hawaii!

Yes, our latest cruise adventure is a big one - all the way to Hawaii with Norwegian Cruise Line and Virgin Holidays. We will be heading to the Aloha Isles this weekend and taking a full 7-day cruise on the Pride of America around the four main islands, Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai.

And, of course, we will be blogging 'live' (Internet connection permitting) as we go, providing some great insight into this exotic part of the world and the unique Cruise Norwegian style (home of Freestyle Cruising, of course).

We fly out to Honolulu and have a night at the deluxe Modern Honolulu Resort on Waikiki Beach before boarding the 2,000-passenger ship the next day, heading out for a full week's Hawaiian voyaging. We have an overnight call at Kahului on Maui, giving two days to explore this island, then have two different ports of call on the Big Island, Hilo and Kona.

Finally, we head for the Garden Island of Kauai, where we have another overnight stay in Nawiliwili, ensuring we get full value for our visit there (where the fabled Waimea Canyon is one of the main attractions).

We return to Honolulu on the final day but our adventure doesn't stop there - oh no! We have a day and a night to enjoy the highly-rated Kahala Resort (complete with its resident dolphins) and then two nights to check out the brand new Disney's Aulani Resort, thus ensuring we get plenty of time to explore Oahu AND kick back at two of the island's finest hotels.

It is sure to be a great trip, with lots of eye-catching photos - and even more reasons to book a cruise!
