Pele, the Fire Goddess, gets the credit for creating this Pacific paradise, but the credit for making it easy to explore each island goes to Norwegian Cruise Lines. It’s the only line to cruise the Hawaiian Islands and it’s time to learn about the unique personality of each island. Their diversity makes each worth a visit.
As Pele made her way from west to east, a string of islands was left behind, each with its own story, history and beauty. Our guide will help you decide what to do on each stop and perhaps which island to visit again based on your personality.
Kauai, the oldest island of the chain, is blessed with wide sandy beaches, lush rain forests, impressive waterfalls and sculptured cliffs.
Oahu has a split personality of sorts, which makes it an easy place to satisfy the whole family. While Honolulu is every inch a modern city, offering world-class shops and restaurants, while there still remains many scenic areas and beautiful quiet coastline to explore.
No matter which island best matches your personality, you’re sure to find something eye catching everywhere.
