2012 President’s Cruise: Vegas and Hawaii

Hawaii and Las Vegas with Prime Time Travel

Mar 17, 2012, 10:27 a.m.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America

Whether it’s paradise or poker, volcanoes or vingt-et-une, sightseeing or slots, Hilo or High/Low, here’s a trip you won’t want to miss.

Leave New York on September 26 headed for three days in Las Vegas of casino action, smash shows, fine dining and more. Then it’s off to sunny Honolulu on September 29 where you’ll board the Norweigian Cruise Line’s Pride of America for a cruise around and through the tropical paradise that is Hawaii.

First you’ll head to beautiful Kahului on Maui’s northern shore where you’ll overnight for a day of beachcombing, sightseeing, shopping and adventure. You’ll depart from Kahului’s deepwater harbor at 6 p.m. on September 30, headed for historic Hilo, the county seat of the island of Hawaii. Hilo is not only Hawaii’s historical center, but also it’s cultural center offering a wide variety of interesting museums. And though you can see both the dormant Mauna Kea and the active Mauna Loa from Hilo, it’s the 6 p.m. departure from Hilo as you head for Kona that provides a look at one of the world’s true wonders: Mauna Loa pouring into the sea and making the island of Hawaii bigger by the hour. Bring you cameras for this once in a lifetime sail.

You’ll reach Kona at 7 a.m. on October 3. Kona encompasses some 60 miles of Hawaii’s lava-lined western coastline and was the final resting place of King Kamehameha. Visit historic Kailua Village or take a walking tour of Hulihee Palace. Then it’s back aboard Pride of America at 6 p.m. and off to Nawilliwilli on Kauai, Hawaii’s “Island of Discovery” where you’ll arrive at 8 a.m. on October 4 and overnight. Kauai is home to the vast Waimea Canyon, have access to 50 miles of beautiful beaches, or tour Koloa where no building is taller than a palm tree. At 2 p.m. you’ll depart for a cruise of the Kauai’s incredible Napali Coast, returning to Honolulu where you’ll have two days to enjoy the wonders of the Big Island of Oahu from your luxury hotel. Tour Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial, take in the big surf of Waimea Bay, or just roam the beaches of Waikiki and enjoy the nightlife before — sadly — returning to reality. Aloha!
