Discover Hawaii With Us

Start off your Hawaiian vacation with an overnight stay in Honolulu, where you can visit the famous Waikiki Beach and Pearl Harbor monument. In Lahaina, admire dormant volcanoes aboard a thrilling helicopter ride, while in Kailua Kona, visit a seahorse farm. Stop by the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in Hilo before setting sail towards Vancouver, where you’ll disembark after enjoying several relaxing days at sea

Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Home to most of Oahu’s population, the port city of Honolulu extends across the southern shores of the island and offers multiple fascinating attractions. From Pearl Harbor to Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the United States, there’s so much to discover on a cruise to Honolulu. Visit the Honolulu Museum of Art for beautiful art collections that reflect Hawaii’s contemporary cultural landscape, including superb Asian art and fascinating Pacific and Polynesian artifacts. Experience the Hawaiian tropical rainforest on a short 2-mile hike along the Manoa Falls Trail or visit the 200-acre Lyon Arboretum, which has one of the largest collections of palm trees in the world and over 5,000 tropical species flourish. Then, head over to in Honolulu’s Chinatown neighborhood for tasty noodles, juicy dumplings, and fresh seafood.

Hilo, Hawaii

Located on the lush coast of the Big Island, Hilo is home to two of the most spectacular waterfalls in all of creation: Rainbow Falls in the south and the mammoth Akaka Falls in the north. Hilo is also home to Volcanoes National Park and the imposing Kilauea Volcano.

Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii

Get high in a helicopter soaring over the dormant Haleakalā volcano and peer down on the spectacular Manawainui Valley waterfalls. Play 18 panoramic holes of golf from 1,100 feet up a mountain slope overlooking the Pacific. A Maui cruise allows you to do some whale watching for acrobatic 40-ton humpbacks. Spot wild spinner, bottlenose, and spotted dolphins from a catamaran off the Maui coast at sunset. Jump in among the dolphins as they do their flips and leaps on a snorkel adventure off the coast of Lanai.

As the starting point for your holiday, Honolulu is teeming with excitement!

WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO Dining and Beverage Packages

Onboard your ship, you’ll find that most everything is complimentary. But if you think your inner foodie may not be able to resist the international temptations of Izumi Japanese Cuisine, Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver and other speciality restaurants, a Dining Package stacks up steep savings.

Similarly, a Beverage Package unlocks all the sips your heart desires, from unlimited fountain drinks with a Classic Soda Package to the alcohol-included Deluxe Beverage Package . On a 16- to 18- night transpacific cruise, packages can be the best way to go.

Why Go On a Transpacific Cruise?

The best cruise experiences are those that combine fun family activities with relaxing me-time. Keep your finger on the pulse of all onboard happenings with the Cruise Planner, the ultimate guide to managing your cruise.

You are travelling to some of the most picturesque places on earth – islands made for on-foot exploration! Be sure to bring comfortable, closed shoes for jungle treks and mesh water shoes for any pebbly beaches.

Once you book a cruise, start planning your experiences. Many, like speciality dining, require reservations, which you can make online. But for the children’s programmes, the kiddos must be signed on the day of embarkation – and space is limited!

FOR THE FOODIES Palate-Pleasing South Pacific Plates 

Gastronomy ranks high on the best cruise adventures – and you’re in for taste-bud-tempting treats! You’ll savour delicious fusions, such as the flavours of France and Polynesia, and freshness beyond compare.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia, Tuna Salad

Fork Up Poisson Cru

Poisson Cru, Tahiti’s national dish, is an unforgettable taste of Polynesian heaven. A type of ceviche, Poisson Cru combines sushi-grade tuna, fresh vegetables, lime juice and coconut milk. For some of the best to be had, along with spectacular sunsets, The Roulottes – Papeete’s waterfront food trucks – are not to be missed.

French_Baquette

Bite into a Crusty Baguette

It has been said that the French baguette should be a Polynesian food group! This delicious bread, with its crisp golden-brown crust and soft airy interior, shows up in the most unexpected places, such as sweet-and-sour chow mein sandwiches. For breakfast, enjoy a warm, just-out-of-the-oven slab slathered with mango spread. Yum!

New Zealand Maori Food

Try Hāngī-Cooked Foods

A traditional Māori method, New Zealand’s hāngī cooking uses heated rocks buried in an umu or pit oven. Chicken, pork, lamb, pumpkin, sweet potatoes – even a hāngī-steamed dessert pudding! – are some of the delicious offerings you can enjoy. When in Auckland, tuck into these delicacies at the centrally-located (and delicious!) Māori Kitchen.

Discover Hawaii With Us

Start off your Hawaiian vacation with an overnight stay in Honolulu, where you can visit the famous Waikiki Beach and Pearl Harbor monument. In Lahaina, admire dormant volcanoes aboard a thrilling helicopter ride, while in Kailua Kona, visit a seahorse farm. Stop by the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in Hilo before setting sail towards Vancouver, where you’ll disembark after enjoying several relaxing days at sea

Featured Highlights

Dramatic scenery.

You’re constantly aware of the power of nature in Hawaii, where the lush scenery is like something out of another world. Jagged cliffs, beaches of glittering black sand, ribbon-like waterfalls cascading from emerald escarpments, and smoldering volcanoes catch your eye at every turn. You’ll see pounding surf, limpid lagoons, and sometimes a snowy cap on the highest mountains. Explore bamboo forests and plunging gorges. At night, look up at the astonishing array of stars.

Unique Culture

Hawaiian people feel a deep connection to nature and embrace the spirit of Aloha, which means living in harmony with nature and the people around you. Beliefs are expressed through beautiful chants, music, graceful hula, and art. Stories relayed from one generation to the next invoke the spirits and the historical events that have shaped the islands. Natural phenomena are understood as the work of gods and goddesses, and many locations and animals are regarded as sacred.

Intriguing Cuisine

Hawaii boasts a unique cuisine, with influences from Polynesia, Japan, and America. Taste fresh tuna poke bowls, sweet pineapple, and juicy strawberry papaya. Try lomi lomi, salted salmon with tomatoes, onions, and hot peppers. Sample local chocolate and enjoy coffee made from Kona beans. Experience everything from delicate sushi and sashimi to moco loco. Look out for spam, a local favorite, served in wontons or as Spam musubi with rice and nori.

Top Hawaii FAQs

What is the best time of year to take a cruise to Hawaii?

The best time of year to visit Hawaii is from March to September, when you can expect warm temperatures and less rain. Hawaii is, however, a year-round destination, with great snorkeling, hiking, and beach life at any time of year.

How long does a typical cruise last?

Our Hawaiian cruises last from nine to 13 nights, sailing between Vancouver and Honolulu. You could also choose a transpacific cruise, starting or ending in Honolulu. These longer voyages range from 16 to 19 nights.

What are the main ports of call?

The main ports of call in Hawaii are Honolulu, from where our cruises start or finish, and Hilo and Kona, both on the Big Island. On some itineraries, you’ll also enjoy scenic cruising along the Napali Coast on Kauai, a sacred landscape of emerald cliffs, pristine beaches, and jagged mountain ridges. Some cruises also visit Astoria in Oregon before the Pacific crossing to Hawaii.

What should I pack?

Hawaii is a tropical destination with year-round warm weather and high humidity. Pack for beach days, and if you’re an active kind of traveler, hikes and adventures. Swimwear, sunblock, coverups, beach shoes, a sun hat, and proper footwear for hiking should all be on your list.

Throughout the ship, casual resort wear, sundresses, shorts, polos, or button-downs are appropriate, paired with sandals, low heels, and loafers. In main and specialty dining, we ask guests to refrain from wearing swimsuits, see-through coverups or robes, bare feet, tank tops, T-shirts, and baseball caps.

Smart Casual attire is required for entry to main dining, specialty dining, and the Celebrity Theatre. Smart Casual means you look comfortable yet tasteful in a dress, skirt, long pants, or jeans with a stylish top or button-down. Shorts and flip-flops are not considered Smart Casual.

Each itinerary features one to two more “formal” nights that we call Evening Chic. Evening Chic means you dress to impress, glamorous and sophisticated in your own way, with a cocktail dress, skirt, slacks, or designer jeans, an elegant dress top, or blazer—some guests even pack a tuxedo or gown for onboard photos.

The daily program, delivered to your stateroom and available at the Guest Relations Desk, will be your guide to the correct attire each evening. If you do not wish to participate in Evening Chic, Smart Casual attire is acceptable for dining and attending the theatre.

Can I fly to Hawaii and then cruise the islands?

Our cruises to Hawaii operate one-way either to or from Honolulu and Vancouver (or Sydney, Australia in terms of transpacific voyages). So yes, if you pick a Honolulu to Vancouver departure, you can easily fly to Hawaii and spend a few days exploring before embarking on your Celebrity ship.

Do I need a passport?

For Hawaii cruises that either begin or end in Vancouver, Canadian law requires that all persons entering Canada carry proof of citizenship and identity. A valid U.S. passport, passport card, or NEXUS card satisfies these requirements for U.S. citizens.

If you have chosen to visit Hawaii as part of a transpacific cruise, you’ll also need a passport.

Non-U.S. citizens also require a passport for entry into both the U.S. and Canada (and the countries visited on our transpacific cruises). It is your responsibility to check your government’s website for the latest information about entry and visa requirements.

What kind of activities and excursions are available?

Hawaii offers a wonderful range of activities and experiences. From Kona, join a snorkel or submarine tour to admire the spectacular underwater world. Meet local producers and try island-made coffee and chocolate, or explore the lush interior of the Big Island in a 4x4, stopping to cool off under tumbling waterfalls.

Historic Hilo is also famous as the gateway to magnificent falls and verdant rainforest. Admire the dramatic lava landscapes of the Volcanoes National Park shaped by the still-active Kilauea and Mauna Loa volcanoes. In Honolulu, make time to visit Pearl Harbor, or stroll along the iconic Waikiki Beach.

State investigating amid reports cruise ship sailed too close to Kauai’s Na Pali Coast

K AUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state Land Department is investigating after Kauai advocates say a cruise ship got too close to shore at the Na Pali Coast.

Kauai community advocates said the ship appeared to be in very shallow water and about 1,000 feet offshore.

According to Celebrity Cruise’s website, the Celebrity Edge is advertising Hawaii cruises from Vancouver.

But a passenger told HNN they came from Sydney, Australia.

“It’s just plain wrong to be in that close to the shore. Period,” said resident Presley Wann.

“I find it very offensive, very upsetting because of the lack of protocol.”

One Na Pali tour manager and captain says it’s the first time he’s seen an incident like this.

“I’ve never seen this in 20 years of Na Pali Coast tours in my life. It’s mind blown,” said Sam Martin.

The DLNR said it’s “aware of the situation and is investigating. We are also consulting our partners with the U.S. Coast Guard and state Department of Transportation on this matter. We have nothing more to add at this time.”

Added state DOCARE Enforcement Chief Jason Redulla: “We’ve received numerous reports. Our officers on the island of Kauai and in Honolulu are working this case.”

Wann worries about cultural and environmental impacts.

“Some of the shots that were taken from the air actually showed the sand being disturbed at the bottom so all of these environmental impacts that it created was very upsetting to me,” said Wann.

The ship was docked at Honolulu Harbor on Wednesday and Wann met with the state Boating Division.

“I understand that that DLNR has taken at least one of their agencies and may have been on board taking statements from the cruise ship,” said Wann.

Hawaii administrative rules mention a 3,000 foot seaward from shore rule and commercial vessels with more than 50 passengers are not permitted to operate with Na Pali Coast Ocean waters.

The state Land Department is investigating after Kauai advocates say a cruise ship got to close to shore at the Na Pali Coast.

Investigation Underway After a Cruise Ship Reportedly Maneuvers Close to Shore

  • May 4, 2024

Footage surfaced online showing Celebrity Edge navigating dangerously close to Hawaii’s Nā Pali Coast earlier this week. Local authorities are investigating the incident, including the possibility that the vessel violated Hawaiian laws designed to protect the coastline.

Aerial view of the lush, mountainous Nā Pali Coast with clear blue waters and waves crashing on the shore.

The Nā Pali Coast is easily one of Kaua’i Island’s most famous areas. With breathtaking beaches and sea caves, it became a reserve in 1983. Because of its cultural and ecological significance, the local government imposed legislation to control commercial activities in the vicinity.

Commercial vessels must maintain a 3,000-foot distance from shore and only certain vessel sizes based on passenger capacity are allowed inside.

Despite these restrictions, online videos and photos show the 2,918-passenger vessel sailing close to the island, evoking concern among environmentalists and residents. Eyewitness accounts estimate that Celebrity Edge was around 1,000 feet from shore.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Hawaii News Report (@hawaiinewsreport)

Meanwhile, those who saw aerial footage claim they noticed the 130,818-ton vessel disturbing the sand underneath, impacting the local marine environment.

Aerial view of Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Edge

After receiving several reports regarding Celebrity Edge, the ship is now under investigation by the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), the State Department of Transportation, and the US Coast Guard.

Celebrity Cruises has yet to issue a statement regarding the controversial incident.

Legal issues complicate removal of ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ city confirms

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Legal issues have complicated the removal of the Haiku Stairs , also known as “Stairway to Heaven.”

Hawaii News Now has learned the city has voluntarily agreed to “not physically remove any of the stair modules until the conclusion of an evidentiary hearing on May 10.”

That’s according to a city statement released Thursday evening.

“The city’s project to remove the Haiku Stairs has not been halted,” it added.

Officials say work preparing the stair modules for removal is ongoing and they expect to move forward with the removal as planned after the hearing.
