Hot Pink Travel
Nearly every day someone asks me about an all-inclusive option for Hawaii. Sadly, that market is just too popular. But, if clients are open to thinking a little differently, two cruise lines, Norwegian and UnCruise, provide the perks of an all-inclusive, and then some.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America
Recently renovated with more than $30 million in enhancements, The Pride of American sails year-round in Hawaii and takes its 2100 passengers on a glorious journey with an unprecedented 100 hours in port during the seven-night cruise. It also includes nearly two full days on each island of Maui and Kaua’i and one day on each side of the big island, Kona and Hilo. So you can enjoy the islands without having to worry about rushing back in time for sail away.
There are hula and lei making classes as well as history talks about Hawaii. And the best part? You can choose between 15 different dining options (4 complimentary) and eat when you want, where you want. With no set dinner times and a relaxed dress code (no formal nights), this cruise around the Hawaiian Islands is ideal for the entire family.
For solo travelers, the ship features 4 single cabins designed specifically for solo travelers and with single rates, but they do fill up quickly.
Prices Start at $899 per person on average and now through Oct 31, you can reserve for just $50!
UnCruise, an unexpected way to see the islands.
With just 36 passengers, 18 staterooms and 15 crew, UnCruise sails from Molokai’I to Hawaii and reverse, visiting the Hawaiian Islands of Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and the big island of Hawai'i. The smaller size is one reason why it’s called UnCruise.
Besides its size, what makes the cruise unique is that everything is included in the price. And I mean everything: one massage, premium bar, all meals as well as kayaks, paddle boards and just about anything else you can think of including all excursions like a night snorkel with Giant Manta Rays.
For kids, there’s the opportunity to go tide pooling, or use the rope swing off the bow to go for a quick swim. Like the Norwegian cruise, everything is casual. No formal nights. No dining times. Everything is comfortable, and that extends to the cabins where you’ll find heated tile floors in the bathrooms; air conditioning; Tempur-Pedic® memory foam mattresses and more.
Off the ship, you’ll explore the breeding grounds of the humpback whale, get up close with sea turtles, learn about the Hawaii culture at a taro farm, and do as much or as little as you like. All excursions are also included in the price.
Prices are $3595 per person all inclusive, but you can save $150 per person booking through a travel agent November 5 – April 1, 2017.
Cabins available in singles, doubles and triples.
