This past New Year’s we decided to take our family on a Hawaiian cruise. Naturally, we chose Norwegian’s Pride of America to embark on this adventure. My two young boys were thrilled with the idea of traveling to Hawaii and looked forward to the many activities that both Hawaii and the Pride of America had to offer.

I just returned from a delightful trip to Hawaii, visiting the two islands of Maui and Kauai, and I traveled with Monograms Vacations. A Globus company, all Monograms programs offer three night hotel accommodations with a choice of hotels, a local host at each hotel, and a rental car for the “road trip” tours. Starting the tour on the island of Maui, we were so pleased with our accommodations at the Royal Lahaina Resort & Spa, located right on legendary Kaanapali Beach. Read on to learn more!

Island Hopping with Norwegian Cruise Line

For several months now, my wife and I have been wanting to go on vacation. The problem was where, when, and what type of vacation would we like to go on. So, recently my parents called me and mentioned that we should all go on cruise. With my parents just coming from an NCL cruise to Alaska, they pitched the idea for us to take a cruise, which I have never been on. I agreed to the idea and set the ball in motion. Now, picking a vacation spot is not as easy as I thought it would be, since NCL offers so many destinations. With that said, I came to a conclusion that we should all go to Hawaii.

I have not been to Hawaii for over 20 years, in fact, it’s about time I should go back. We decided to go in January because we wanted to avoid the summer vacation crowds and high summer vacation fares. First, we booked on NCL’s Pride of America 7 Day Hawaii Cruise. This ship has the perfect itinerary for your “island hopping” adventure, not to mention you are at a port everyday rather than being at sea. And second, we booked 2 pre and two post nights in Honolulu. We really wanted to take advantage of the time we have in Hawaii, so we chose to do the pre and post nights with the cruise in between.Continue reading

Recently I decided to fulfill one of my travel goals which was to actually take a vacation. A real vacation—not one of those where, you’re so exhausted, you need a vacation from your travels. No. I wanted a real getaway trip, but a trip that included tons of sightseeing excursions as well as included meals, plus a guide that would take care of all of the nuances and details along the way. That’s when I decided to go for an At Leisure escorted tour to Hawaii. Since this was to be my first ever escorted tour, I decided to try a more upscale itinerary which led me to find Hawaiian Dreams, an Insight Gold Tour.
