As overall pricing on cruises is steadily increasing from last year’s historic lows, we’re advising all our customers to book now for summer or fall sailings to Hawaii
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) March 11, 2010
If a cruise circling the Hawaiian Islands sounds like a nice break from life on the mainland, CruiseDeals.com offers insider tips and special cruise pricing that will quickly get any traveler into the Aloha spirit. The large internet cruise agency specializes in arranging cruise vacations in Hawaii and explains the top ten reasons travelers should ride the waves into America’s beloved 50th state.
1. Experience multiple islands. A cruise is a great way for a traveler to experience Hawaii for the first time so they can visit multiple islands at one time and get a taste and feel for what each distinct island has to offer.
2. Spend more time exploring islands. Unlike many Caribbean itineraries where destinations may be spread further apart, there is not much time spent at sea cruising between the four main Hawaiian islands so vacationers will have much more time (nearly 100 hours on a typical 7-day itinerary) to explore the lush landscapes and pristine beaches on shore.
3. Bring the family along. Hawaii is a popular destination for families, offering a range of activities and attractions for adults and children of all ages to enjoy. Besides the endless beaches to explore, families can check out abundant tide pools, visit tropical reef aquariums, learn about volcanoes, or catch a dolphin show.
4. Save money for excursions and souvenirs. Cruising the Hawaiian islands can be more affordable than paying hefty prices at resorts and restaurants. All meals are provided with the price of the cruise so families can eat as much as they like onboard, and save money for unforgettable shore excursions and souvenirs for loved ones back home. CruiseDeals.com is currently offering exclusive rates on 7-night fall Hawaiian cruises on Norwegian Cruise Line.
5. Enjoy scenic cruising. As the cruise ship peacefully navigates around the islands, cruisers will have a front row seat almost anywhere on the ship to take in the natural beauty of the islands and coast lines. Cruising the iconic Napali Coast on the North Shore of Kauai provides travelers with dramatic views of the mountainous coastline and cascading waterfalls not accessible by land.
6. See the best of each island. Cruising all of the islands allows visitors to avoid having to choose one island over another. They can take a fascinating tour of Pearl Harbor when the ship docks in Oahu and still enjoy the stunning view from Maui’s popular Haleakala Crater on the same trip.
7. Sample variety of shore excursions. There is so much to see and do on each island, that travelers will have plenty of shore excursion options to choose from. One might opt to golf in Oahu, journey to Waimea Canyon in Kauai, take a surfing lesson in Maui and visit the famous Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii’s big island.
8. Leave the passport at home. Hawaii is one of a very few tropical island destinations you can visit from the United States mainland that doesn’t require travelers to carry a valid passport. On the same note, U.S. vacationers will not have to convert their currency or worry about a language barrier when visiting Hawaii, and can easily stay connected to work and family without incurring international roaming charges for cellular phones and cellular Internet access.
9. Unpack only one time. A major benefit to cruising in general is that a person can visit a number of interesting destinations while only having to unpack their suitcase once. Their floating hotel is ready and waiting for them to reboard and relax at any time.
10. Host a conference at sea. Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America based in Hawaii was purposefully built to hold conferences at sea, making a Hawaiian cruise an attractive and reasonably priced option for companies to host an educational conference or meeting onboard.
“As overall pricing on cruises is steadily increasing from last year’s historic lows, we’re advising all our customers to book now for summer or fall sailings to Hawaii,” explained Kevin Weisner, vice president of CruiseDeals.com. “We contracted and locked in prices that are well below current retail on NCL’s Pride of America for fall 2010, and we’re even able to throw in $100 in onboard credit on many sailings. In fact, we encourage people to shop around in order to see how good our prices are, but do remember these deals will surely sell out soon.”
