Cruises from Honolulu, Hawaii
Honolulu is just perfectly positioned to be a spring-board for cruising the romantic Hawaiian Islands, French Polynesia, Fiji and Samoa and Transpacific cruises to Australia and New Zealand. Close your eyes and picture the perfect island getaway – powder-white sand, azure sea and swaying palm trees; chances are that whatever your mind can conjure up can be found on a cruise from Honolulu to one or more of these breathtakingly beautiful islands! Planning the perfect honeymoon or anniversary? A romantic Honolulu cruise is just the ticket; let me tell you about some of the options available.
Cruises departing from Honolulu
Honolulu is situated just over half-way between Australia and North America, so there is a lot of ocean to cross between destinations and the shortest cruise from Honolulu is a 10 night transpacific cruise to Vancouver with Princess Cruises. Your cruise departs from Honolulu and visits beautiful Kauai, Kona and Hilo in Hawaii. You have a full day on each of these idyllic islands before setting off for 7 nights at sea before you reach Vancouver. This is an ideal cruise for those who love spending time on board and taking advantage of all the activities your ship has to offer – try your luck at the casino, watch a movie, relax in the Spa, attend a lecture or just laze around the pool or jog around the deck to work up an appetite! Princess Cruises also offer an 11-night cruise to Papeete(Tahiti) in French Polynesia; on this one you will visit Kauai, Maui and Hilo in Hawaii before cruising for 5 nights to amazing Bora Bora, Moorea and finally the very French town of Papeete. This one would be hard to beat as a honeymoon itinerary!
Cruises from Honolulu to Sydney
Royal Caribbean Cruises offer two different options for longer cruises from Honolulu to Sydney, calling at several islands in either Samoa or French Polynesia. Both of these 16+ night cruises include several sea-days and are ideal if you love the ultimate relaxation of life on the high seas. If you choose the first option, you would visit Pago Pago and Apia in Samoa, Suva in Fiji and then the very beautiful archipelago of Vanuatu, before heading south to the Isle of Pines and then down the coast Queensland to Sydney. If you choose the second option, your Honolulu cruise will take you to the very beautiful French Polynesian islands of Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea and then south to Wellington and Picton in New Zealand before docking in beautiful Sydney harbour.
Whichever cruise you decide on, rest assured that it will be a holiday to remember!
