The Hawaiian Island chain consists of eight major islands and over 120 minor reefs and islands, so a Hawaiian cruise is the best way to explore the channels and waterways that intersect the islands. The four primary islands of Oahu, Hawaii, Kauai, and Maui are the most popular sites that tourists will visit on their Hawaiian cruise. Hawaii’s beauty and diversity is seen in its active volcanism, inviting waters, Polynesian culture, hula dances and regional cuisine. Well-known ports include Honolulu Harbour and Pearl Harbour.
Tourist ships generally visit four of the main islands.
