Cruises on O‘ahu
Perfect for family or romantic getaways!
A handful of stylish cruise ships offers visits to ports on the major Hawaiian Islands: O‘ahu (Honolulu port), Maui (Kahului or Lahaina), Kaua‘i (Lihue) and the Big Island (Hilo and/or Kailua-Kona).
Most ships on an interisland route depart from Honolulu, but some originate from Maui. Choose from 7-, 10- or 11-day interisland cruises year round, with longer stays in port for exploration and adventure.
O‘ahu’s port city, Honolulu, is the capital city of the state of Hawai‘i and the seat of government for the City and County of Honolulu (which encompasses O‘ahu and the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands stretching to Midway and Kure). Downtown Honolulu sits on the shores of sheltered Honolulu Harbor, where large cruise ships began to arrive in the 1920s and continue to make port today.
This sophisticated city is packed with attractions and things to do, most not more than a 10-minute taxi ride from the harbor. With several hours to spare you can visit world-class museums, Waikiki Beach, historic Pearl Harbor and some of the best shopping spots in the Pacific.
