Sailing around Hawaii on a cruise ship offers guests a much broader experience of the islands. This is because most cruises take you to at least five different ports of call within the chain, docking overnight at some of the hottest spots on the island. When else can you see Honolulu, Oahu, Lahaina and Kahului, Maui, Kona and Hilo, Big Island, and Nawiliwli, Kauai in one week? There is no better way to island hop than to do so by cruise, especially if you have limited time for your vacation.

With such perse and unique destinations within Hawaii, it’s hard to pinpoint where exactly you want to spend your entire vacation. Which is why cruising is so ideal. Plus, you not only experience the on land activities of each island, but also the on board ship amenities as well. Although many ships offer activity bookings once on land, we recommend using an outside travel company for this. That way you can utilize the local knowledge and insider rates. And if you book these activities through Hawaii Aloha Travel, we guarantee to get you the best rates available on each island you visit.

The popular islands that most cruise ships dock at are Oahu, Maui, Big Island, and Kauai, with the Ports of Calls varying on each island. What’s so idyllic about each town or city that you visit is they’re all teeming with activity and adventure. Jump on a tour van to Kipu Ranch on Kauai and zip line over the lush rainforests and waterfalls. Or take the Pearl Harbor tour on Oahu and visit the history museums around Honolulu. Maui offers shopping at quaint boutiques and local shops, and Big Island offers a fun nightlife and great snorkeling.

Each island is distinctively supreme in offering beautiful beaches, water front resorts, surf lessons, snorkeling, kayaking, ping, SUPing, shopping, and all around sight seeing, so take advantage of a cruise to Hawaii and see it all. There is a reason why so many travelers choose to take a cruise to Hawaii, and a lot of it has to do with the different experience and the low cost. With prices of flights increasing and the services decreasing, it’s no wonder why many people are opting for a cruise to Hawaii.

Cruise ships offer a wide variety of onboard activities, from rock climbing and running to cooking classes and Las Vegas style entertainment. And once you reach your island destination, the opportunities for more fun activities increase by double. Each island will offer something different than the next, and you don’t have to worry about food or overnight expenses. Plus, you’re off to another completely different vacation destination in a day! Discover the extensiveness of Hawaii and do it affordably through Hawaii Aloha Travel.

The cruise ship experience is unlike any other type of travel to Hawaii. However, many passengers feel like they miss out on the land activities of the islands when they travel by ship. Not true. Not only do the cruise ships offer activity planning, daily itineraries, and concierge services, but local travel companies offer this as well. Hawaii Aloha Travel specializes in planning your on land excursions for each island you visit, so you don’t have to spend the time doing it yourself. From surf lessons to shopping days to eating at some of the most popular local spots, we can customize your days on land to fit any preference.


  1. Sadly, I’ve never been on a cruise before. But it’s something I’d love to do one day! I know it’s silly, but I instantly think “Titanic” when I think of cruises. So perhaps a short cruise, LOL.

  2. how does one apply for employment on the cruise line between islands? I live in haiku maui and would like to join the crew.
