Some would say that the paradise isles that make up the US State of Hawaii are best visited by an Hawaiian cruise, either as part of a full World cruise, a Hawaii cruise from Los Angeles, or a cruise from San Francisco, hopping between the bright, vibrant, colourful islands.
Holiday the whole year round to this pristine adventure playground and enjoy its lush green vegetation, stunning tropical blossom, warm 'aloha' welcomes all set against an awe-inspiring backdrop. Discover the secrets of Hawaii's volcanic past and the natural beauty of these Pacific islands as they are today. This is truly "a must see" location, and how better to visit them than from the elegant surroundings of a glamorous Hawaiian cruise.
Hawaii is the ultimate tropical paradise with white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters full of multi-coloured fish weaving through fiery coral gardens and super friendly locals. If Hawaii is just the start of your cruising experience then why not discover the entire globe on a world cruise. If you're looking to explore other exotic islands, then another sumptuous alternative is a Caribbean cruise.

Each of the stunning Islands has something different to offer you, so why not maximise on your Pacific experience by taking superb shore excursions to discover their hidden gems.
