Singles cruises to Hawaii are also gaining popularity. There are many different types of cruise packages that go to Hawaii. Here are a couple different types of Hawaii cruise vacations available to anyone.
Island Only Hawaii Cruise Vacations
If you are planning on visiting Hawaii but don’t want to take a cruise to get there, you can find Hawaii cruise packages that leave out of Hawaii and return to the same port after making a trip around all the islands. These cruises can last anywhere from 3-7 days. The 3 day Hawaii cruise is long enough to visit a couple of islands, but not spend the night. You’ll enjoy all of the benefits that the Hawaii cruise ships offer, and still have plenty of time to explore each island and their treasures. These are great for honeymooners and families alike. In fact, the Hawaii honeymoon cruise remains the best selling type of package for this area. A family Hawaii cruise vacation is also hugely popular. Since these cruises start and end in Hawaii, you’ll need to fly in to the islands. Some cruise lines will offer packages that include the airfare to the departure point. For a Hawaii cruise, this can be the more affordable route to go.
Hawaii and Tahiti
Another way to enjoy Hawaii cruise vacations is to look for trips that include parts of French Polynesia. Tahiti and Bora Bora and the most common ports for these cruises. Bora Bora has long been known as a fanciful playground for the wealthy. The nice thing about taking a Hawaiian cruise that includes Bora Bora is you don’t have to be rich to enjoy it. The ships will dock and give you plenty of time to play on the island. You can enjoy the fine dining, exquisite shopping, and sun drenched beaches without having to pay to stay on the island. Tahiti is also a lush tropical paradise. You can visit the mountainous terrain on the interior of the island, play in large waterfalls, and take in some of the tropical flower fields. Once you leave this area you go safely back to the Hawaiian islands, and haven’t spent your life savings visiting one of the more expensive pearls in the world.
Hawaii from the Mainland
Those with extra time will enjoy taking Hawaii cruise vacations that originate in either California or Vancouver. These cruises aren’t as popular because of the length of time involved. Because they are less crowded, they can offer you a more romantic setting. You can also find great cruise deals for these types of cruises as the cruise lines try to fill the ships. Since these cruises do take longer they don’t always explore all of the islands in Hawaii. You want to make sure that the cruise trip will make the stops you are looking forward to before you book. In most cases you can still travel between the islands on a ferry or Hawaiian cruise tour while the large cruise ship is at port. You should have a few days at each island with this type of Hawaii cruise vacations.
