Things to Do on a Cruise to Hawaii
Did you know that Hawaii is comprised of over 1,500 islands? You are probably more familiar with the eight main islands which include Maui, Hawaii and Oahu. The 50th state is actually in Polynesia, and offers an exciting backdrop of volcanoes and jungles to the riveting culture of the island natives. Featured below are a few of the best things to do when cruising to Hawaii:
Spot a hoard of humpback whales as they come to the warm waters off of Maui to give birth. If you stick your head in the water you can hear their echoing voices.
Visit the Polynesian Cultural Center where people are on hand to teach you about the different cultures and traditions on many islands in Polynesia. For instance, attend a Samoan cooking class or learn how to start a fire using two pieces of wood.
Tour the USS Missouri to learn about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that preceded America’s involvement in WWII. There is also a beautiful memorial in the area.
See the beautiful and enchanting Napali Coast. Whether from the vantage point of a cruise or on a helicopter excursion, you’ll be amazed at the waterfalls and stunning hue of this tropical coastline.
Attend a luau. These celebratory feasts usually include hula dancers, flame throwers and a delicious dinner, all served outside with the ocean in the background.
Hike up an active volcano at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You can feel the heat from the crater that vents steam from the volcano, and then go inside a lava tube.
