You’ve heard the common remarks about cruises… they often get labeled as “booze cruises” or tagged as weight-gaining vacations. But cruises don’t have to fall victim to these stigmas. In fact, cruise lines are fine-tuning their amenities, packages, activities, and offers for guests who are interested in going beyond what the typical cruise ship usually presents. Making the decision to travel 8 days on the water with no stop along the way is a big consideration. Many folks don’t realize that you spend more time at sea then you do exploring on cruises to Hawaii that leave from mainland ports.
If you decide to travel to Hawaii via cruise ship, there are many ways to get the most out of this experience, and also heighten your time in the islands. Many think that if you traverse the islands via cruise ship, then you won’t really experience Hawaii. Not true. You just need a good travel company to help you with these details. And it doesn’t take much.
In fact, the cruises themselves offer onboard concierge services where you can book surf lessons, snorkeling, hikes, and much more, for an additional charge of course. Or, you can look into working directly with a local travel company to create a day-by-day itinerary for each island you visit. This is what we highly recommend. A local company will know which places are must-sees if you have limited time. They can also get you discounted rates from their insider connections, and offer exclusive deals that the cruise ships cannot. Working with a local agent will get you the most out of your cruise to Hawaii because they can maximize your time on land. Where the cruise ships surpass expectations onboard and on the water, Hawaii Aloha Travel can match this once you’ve stepped foot onto the soils of Hawaii.
