Hawaii is one of the most famous travel destinations in the entire world. There are reasons, after all, that many consider this collection of islands to be a veritable paradise. However, to get to Hawaii, one needs to travel to Hawaii… And there are several ways to do that! If you want to experience a Hawaiian vacation the way it was meant to be experienced, though, then you need to take the Hawaiian cruise!
For one, cruising out to the islands in comfort is way better than being crammed into a middle seat and surrounded by an airplane full of tourists. Instead, you can relax and unwind, sunning yourself up on deck, and enjoying the various forms of entertainment on the boat.
But, that’s not the only benefit. Cruising allows you to see multiple locations on the Hawaiian Islands, which you might not be able to do if you were to fly out there. For this reason, we’ve decided to take a look at a 15-day Hawaiian itinerary that the Ruby Princess will be running throughout the new year. So, come take a look, and see why cruising to the islands is the only way to go!
1. Leaving From Los Angeles
If you don’t already live there, Los Angeles is a city that needs to be experienced. Be sure to check out the hot spots before boarding the Ruby Princess.
2. Ruby Princess
Speaking of the Ruby Princess, check out the boat you’ll be taking! It’s one of the best in the Princess Cruises line.
3. A Closer Look
Several of Princess Cruises’ ships operate Hawaiian itineraries out of Los Angeles. The Ruby Princess, though, is the best in our estimation.
4. 15 Days
And, the ship is important, because it’s going to take several days of cruising in the Pacific to reach Hawaii.
Depending upon when you leave, your first port of call will be Honolulu or Hilo. Let’s look at Honolulu first.
6. The Capital
Honolulu, as you likely already know, is the capital of Hawaii. As such, it’s home to a number of historical landmarks, including Iolani Palace.
7. Honolulu Nightlife
And, if you’re feeling especially saucy, you can hit up Honolulu at night, experiencing its world-famous nightlife.
If you hit Honolulu first, then your next stop is going to be Hilo, which is the largest city on the island of Hawaii.
9. Get Cultured
Given its size, Hilo is widely considered to be one of the best places to immerse yourself in Hawaiian culture.
10. Tropical Beauty
But enough of all that city slicking! You didn’t just cruise to Hawaii to see that, did you? Let’s check out Kauai, which is also on the itinerary.
11. The Garden Isle
To many, including the locals, Kauai is known as “The Garden Isle”. As you can see, it looks every bit the part.
12. Beach Loving
After you’ve had ample opportunity to check out Kauai, it’s off to Maui, where you can visit some of the most famous beaches in the world.
13. If You Have Time
Hawaii is famous for its surfers. If you want to see them in action, then you’ll have to make it a point to visit Ho’okipa Beach Park when you’re ashore.
14. Heading Back
Maui is the last Hawaiian stop for this 15-day cruise. After you’re done there, it’s time to cruise back toward the state.
15. A Bonus Stop
But, you don’t just head directly back to Los Angeles. Instead, you’ll be stopping at a place called Ensenada.
This city of about half-a-million residents is located on the shores of All Saints Bay. There’s plenty to see and do here.
If your interest in a Hawaiian cruise isn’t piqued now, when will it be? Book your cruise on the Ruby Princess today, and enjoy it soon!
