Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Mon 4 Mar 2013 San Diego, USA 5.00pm
Hawaii Cruise San Diego is a coastal Southern California city located in the SW corner of the continental United States. With a very pleasant mild climate that defines the city, though it’s big (and growing fast), San Diego manages to hang on to a resort feel even amid the skyscrapers and brick facades of its revamped downtown. A huge influx of visitors helps add to the vacation atmosphere, from party-hearty undergrads to boozy conventioneers.

Just west of the city are some delightful beaches where many activities are on offer. If curious, then take the Hop on-Hop Off trolley to Coronado Island and take the Walking Tour to appreciate the locals and the interesting history of this popular spot. Another very popular tourist attraction is the USS Midway Navy carrier, which is most impressive as it could carry over 4,000 people, and still has 25 aircraft on display. A visit to the Mediterranean style seaside town of La Jolla with its great views, food, and activities including ocean kayaking, tidepool-hopping, and surfing at Windansea Beach.

San Diego is also a favourite for family vacations, with kid-positive attractions like SeaWorld and, especially for little ones, Legoland. A must-see is the delightful Balboa Park, the nation's largest urban cultural park that is home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens, a gift shop, the Prada Restaurant, and the world famous San Diego Zoo. Also of great interest is the Safari Park where lions and giraffes for example live in their natural habitat.

7 Sun 10 Mar 2013 Honolulu, USA 7.00am 11.59pm
Hawaii Cruise The birthplace of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the Unites States, Honolulu is the cultural, industrial, commercial, and governmental centre of Hawaii, with Waikiki Beach the epicentre of the tourist industry. It is a thriving world-class city, with nearly one million people in its metropolitan area. Oahu is the most popular of the Hawaiian Islands, and as the city is packed with sights, activities, and tourist attractions, it is easy to understand why there is so much to do in this southernmost major U.S. city. It is also a major hub for international business, military defense, as well as famously being host to a diverse variety of east-west and Pacific culture, cuisine, and traditions.

While most of us are aware that the beaches around Honolulu are exquisite, and include the world famous Waikiki Beach, as well as Kahaloa and Ulukou Beaches, which also offer superb swimming and plenty of activities for the whole family. Places that could well make up your short list are: the excellent Honolulu Zoo where animals wander around freely, and includes a petting zoo; the beautifully restored 19th century Iolani palace; and a free visit to the Royal Hawaiian Hotel that is a fascinating landmark of Waikki Beach.

Of great interest are shopping venues, such as the Aloha Tower Marketplace complex that consists of numerous shops featuring not only clothing, but also jewellery and art. The complex also offers a great choice of restaurants and expansive views of the harbour from the Aloha Tower observation deck. Another exciting venue is the mysterious and historical Chinatown. With its colourful combination of SE Asian cultures and numerous restaurants and medicine shops, it certainly is an amazing experience.

8 Mon 11 Mar 2013 Lahaina, USA 8.00am 11.59pm
Hawaii Cruise Lahaina is the largest town in West Maui Hawaii and is the gateway to the famous Kaanapali and Kapalua beach resorts north of the town. The banyan tree in Courthouse Square is noteworthy for its size. As a strangling fig, it has grown by dropping roots from its branches that then become additional trunks, allowing it to cover two-thirds of an acre. Lahaina's Front Street, along the waterfront – with stores offering a broad variety of food and entertainment – has been ranked one of the ‘Top Ten Greatest Streets’ by the American Planning Association, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Lahaina is on the National Register of Historic Places. You can still get a feel for old Lahaina as you stroll down lively Front Street and visit historic stops like the U.S. Seamen’s Hospital, Lahaina Prison, the Pioneer Inn and other sites on the Historic Trail. In 1831 a fort was built for defense, and the remains of its 6.1 m walls and original cannons can still be seen. Also nearby are the historic Pioneer Inn and Baldwin House. In conjunction with this, the winning show Ulalena at the Maui Theatre offers a Broadway-calibre production showcasing the culture of Hawaii.

Surfing in the inviting ocean is often the top priority for many, while snorkelling - perhaps from the island of Molakini - is delightful and whales can be seen everywhere from November through to March. Take the opportunity to taste the fresh regional cuisine at the fine restaurants or experience a seaside luau, where you can not only enjoy some great food and drink, but also watch the traditional dances of Polynesia. During the winter months, don’t forget to set sail from Lahaina Harbor on an unforgettable whale-watching tour. This is one of the best places in the world to spot humpback whales.

9 Tue 12 Mar 2013 Kailua, USA 8.00am 6.00pm
Hawaii Cruise The scenic little village of Kailua, primarily a residential community, lies on the windward coast of the island of Hawaii and is just 19 km from Honolulu. It is renowned for the Kailua Beach Park, the island of Oahu’s most beautiful beach, due to the offshore islands that add to its atmosphere, and where the surf is gentle and the sand is perfect. It is greast for sunbathing and recreational activities, as well as being the beach used as a world-class windsurfing destination. Indeed it is the site of the annual Ironman Triathlon World Championship. Other popular places worth visiting include the Enchanted Lake Park and the Dragonfly Water Gardens.

Kailua, or commonly called Kona, is also home to Kawainui Marsh, the picturesque and largest remaining wetland in Hawaii that is home to some fascinating fauna, including endangered and endemic water birds of Hawaii. From here visitors also enjoy the views of Mount Olomana and the Ko'olau mountains. The Ulupo Heiau (Night of Inspiration) is a sacred Native Hawaiian temple located in Kawainui Marsh. It is the second largest existing temple on O'ahu and is worth the ten metre climb to the high rock platform. Do take the time to enjoy the special locally grown and made coffee.

Kailua is also a great place to learn how to ride a Skegway - it becomes second nature after just a few minutes - and then use the machine to explore the natural beauty, history, and culture of the area. This will certainly be among your very special memories from Hawaii. Bicycling is also very popular, as is kayaking. On the other hand many visitors enjoy lazing on the beach while watching the kite boarders and wind surfers do their thing. Last but not least, don’t forget to locate the unique Sweet Stop, the dessert lover's paradise.

9 Tue 12 Mar 2013 Nawiliwili, USA
Hawaii Cruise Nawiliwili is a large beach park and port on the SE of the island of Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands. One of the wettest spots on Earth, with an annual average rainfall of over 11 meters, it is located on the east side of Mount Wai'ale'ale. The high annual rainfall has eroded deep valleys in the central mountains resulting in canyons with many scenic waterfalls. Sport fishing is excellent in the harbour while great snorkel and dive opportunities are also available. It also provides access to Poipu Beach, one of the best beaches in Hawaii as well as the opportunity to experience a helicopter tour.

If you want to shop, have a great lunch and get some sunshine then simply walk over to Nearby Kalapaki Beach with its great little shopping malls – one right on the beach - and simply relax on the beach or participate in snorkelling, safe swimming, as well as surfing. The Wailua River boat trip to the Fern Grotto is always appreciated as there is great shopping at Coconut Plantation just beyond the river. The scenery is delightful, while the town of Hanalei is a wonderful little community with eclectic boutiques, shops and small wonderfully rustic restaurants.

Many regard the helicopter tour of Mt. Waialeale, Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali Coast as awesome, a ‘must-do’ and something that will be remembered forever. The helicopters will take you up the canyon, to the Alakai Swamp, by numerous waterfalls, into the main canyon walls and much, much more. You may also get to land at the amazing island of Niihau, a small island of some 250 full blooded Hawaiians, and absorb their natural way of life and culture.

10 Wed 13 Mar 2013 Hilo, USA 7.00am 4.00pm
Hawaii Cruise Hilo is an impressively beautiful town and the largest settlement in Hawaii, overlooking Hilo Bay with beaches, caves, rivers, and waterfalls within its limits. The town is near two shield volcanoes, Mauna Loa, considered active, and Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano where some of the best ground-based astronomical observatories are placed. Though not necessarily seen as a tourist town, if you can do without a few amenities, you will be thoroughly rewarded here.

Visit: the Rainbow Falls in a gorge blanketed with lush vegetation, the Tropical Botanical Gardens with its delightful flowers and wonderful views of the ocean, the Lili'uokalani gardens to absorb its quaint Japanese features, and the Nauna Loa Macadamia Nut Visitors Centre to enjoy the famous nuts. Also on offer are helicopter rides that provide an excellent overview of the entire island.

If travelling to the Kiouea and Volcano National Park to see its active volcano, then be sure to stop and see the delightful Akatsuda Orchid Gardens. The Tsunami Museum and the Lyman Mission House and Museum present fascinating historical facts about the area, and if you wish to experience something truly different, then visit the Punakuu black-sand beach and watch the green turtles basking.

15 Mon 18 Mar 2013 Ensenada, Mexico 7.00pm 11.59pm
Hawaii Cruise Ensenada, about 100 km south of the US/Mexican border at Tijuana, is just far enough from the border to offer a more authentic Mexican experience than the eight border towns. Ensenada is one of the oldest municipalities in Baja California, and one of the largest in the world by land area. Situated on the beautiful island-studded Bay (Bahia) of Los Angeles, it offers aquatic activities such as windsurfing, kayaking and whale-watching. It is also home to La Bufadora - translated as ‘the snorter’ - as this undercover cave regularly sucks in sea water and spits it out the cave's top, drenching the surroundings.

First Street is a very popular destination as it is lined with shops offering local products at very reasonable prices and is a great place to ‘people watch’ and absorb the culture. There is also the appealing main shopping area along Lopez Mateos, while Ruiz Avenue is lined with some of the more refined shops and cafes. Apart from shopping, there are some important museums such as the Museum of Natural Science, as well as a great historic site with its famous Catavina Rock Paintings. Alternatively, go whale watching when in season, or, if you prefer, do some diving and kayaking.

Plaza Civica in the city centre contains the busts of three historical figures, while the Aduana Maritima, the oldest public building, now serves as the exhibit space for the National Institute of Anthropology and History. Then there is the Rivera del Pacifico, a graceful white building once a casino, but that is now an architectural monument featuring tours of its massive interior. Last, but definitely not least, is the Bodegas de Santo Thomas, where visitors learn about local wine-making traditions and enjoy sampling the wine together with bread and cheeses. To inject adrenaline to your tour, go hiking and conquer zip-lines and suspension bridges.
