Immerse yourself in history. As you travel from Waikīkī toward Pearl Harbor, you will visit the Punchbowl Crater, home of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and enjoy breathtaking city and ocean views. Traveling through downtown, you’ll see the state capitol building, the governor’s mansion, Iolani Palace (the only royal palace in the United States) and the imposing King Kamehameha statue.
From there, you will visit Pearl Harbor and enjoy observations from an expert tour guide. First, you’ll take a boat shuttle to the USS Arizona Memorial, a floating memorial built over the sunken hull of the Battleship USS Arizona, the final resting place for many of the ship’s crew.
You'll then tour the USS Bowfin, the submarine known as the "Pearl Harbor Avenger," and get a close look at its torpedo room, engine room and sleeping quarters. Then you'll have the chance to explore the decks of the 60,000-ton battleship USS Missouri. Don't miss the Surrender Deck on "Mighty Mo," where General MacArthur accepted the unconditional Japanese surrender that ended World War II.
Your afternoon continues at the Pacific Aviation Museum, within former WWII airplane hangars on Pearl Harbor's Ford Island. Experience exhibits showcasing the stories behind WWII fighter planes and bombers. Plus see planes like an authentic Japanese Zero as well as a B-25B bomber, the planes used in 1942 during the Tokyo Raid.

During your time at Kualoa Ranch, step back in time and learn how ancient Hawaiians lived and thrived as a people. Enjoy interactive experiences showing the many uses of the taro plant, ti leaves and other plants that were brought to the Hawaiian Islands on double hulled canoes by the early Polynesian settlers. Witness the process of turning taro roots into poi, learn the cultural history of hula, and try your hand at learning an authentic hula dance as well as making leis out of native plants.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols
Norwegian us going the extra mile to ensure your safety on board and on shore. With Norwegian's Peace of Mind, you can cruise safely with enhanced health and safety protocols and flexible booking. Feel Free to change plans as needed and feel confident knowing that Norwegian is looking out for your health and safety.
Norwegian has been working closely with the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and are adding stringent protocols, strategic application and supporting innovation to meet and exceed their standards once those have been finalized by them. The below are the safety measures Norwegian will immediately be implementing fleetwide, with more in development.
ALL-NEW AIR FILTRATION
Installation of medical-grade air-filters, H13 HEPA, that remove 99.95% of airborne pathogens across Norwegian's entire fleet to ensure the air you breathe is clean.
ENHANCED SCREENING PROTOCOLS
All guests will undergo an enhanced pre-embarkation health screening, and those considered at risk will undergo additional screening. Additionally, all crew will undergo extensive screening prior to embarkation and constant monitoring throughout the voyage. Touchless temperature checks and continuous monitoring of guests and crew throughout the voyage will help identify potential health issues, offering an additional layer of prevention and protection.
INCREASED SANITATION MEASURES
All ships are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to every voyage in accordance with company protocols, which are developed in partnership with CDC's Vessel Sanitation Program. Embarkation terminals will be sanitized continuously, and, where possible, fogged before and after each embarkation and debarkation. Further, all staterooms, suites and public areas will be cleaned, sanitized and disinfected at an increased frequency, and including the use of Electrostatic Spray Technology.
RESPONSIBLE SOCIAL DISTANCING
To provide even more space for responsible social distancing, guest capacity on board will be reduced. Staggered embarkation and online check-in will be implemented for proper social distancing. In addition, Norwegian is committed to reducing capacity in all public areas throughout the voyage.
ENHANCED MEDICAL RESOURCES
Onboard medical centers will be fully equipped with the latest testing kits and medical supplies. Norwegian is also increasing the medical team fleetwide. Additionally, each ship has dedicated isolation accommodations should the need arise.
EXTENDED SHIP TO SHORE SAFETY
- Norwegian is partnering with local destinations and tour operators to ensure their industry-leading health and sanitation protocols extend to the shoreside experience.
- Norwegian will only visit safe, open ports of call which may cause changes to your itinerary. Keeping the guests up-to-date with the latest confirmed changes impacting their itineraries is a top priority.
Life on Board
Questions & Answers
Question: When should I arrive at the port?
Question: How can I communicate with my family and friends at home when I am on the cruise?
NCL was able to accomodate my special dietary needs with no problems. They also had some appropriate and fantastic shows and activities. I had one problem on the trip: I booked my shore excursions on the NCL webpage in advance, my excursion times changed when I got on board, I didn't know to look on my physical ticket to see that the time had changed, so I missed my first (and most desired) excursion. No one told me the excursion time could change after I printed my itinerary confirmation--and I talked with 2 members of the shore excursion desk the night before my first excursion! CHECK YOUR PHYSICAL TICKET FOR UPDATED EXCURSION TIME AND MEETING PLACE!!!
The itinerary was great. It was an easy way to see four of the Hawaiian Islands.
Norwegian has a captive audience in that they are the only cruise line that cruises the Hawaiian Island round trip from Honolulu. Norwegian takes full advantage of this based on the fares that they charge.
We really enjoy working with Dawn. This was the third cruise we've booked through her, and it certainly won't be our last. She's our travel agent; can't ask for anything more.
NCL did an excellent job providing a great cruise for us! Great land tours, top flight shows, very clean ship, good food and a caring staff.
The staff on this cruise ship were very courteous. When things didn't go too well, they would provide us with free gifts. There were times when the staff would put things in our room when we were not expecting anything. They had a wide range of food on offer.
Wonderful time with no glitches.
Wish there was more time at parks and sights. Usually felt rushed. Saw numerous sights and felt guides were trying to give us best value for our money. Guide for canyon visit and grotto fern river cruise, I felt could have allows tour more time at canyon and less time at souvenir place. It just wasn't right to spend less time at canyon than spent at souvenir place. Over all enjoyed visit but will probably not return to Hawaii. Place did not live up to expectations. I think heat and the lack of abundant water for waterfalls was not the fault of the tour but still felt disappointed. If I visit again will go to Big Island and Garden Island on my own. Have a more personal experience.
We loved the cruise our 2nd time around,only thing we were disappointed with,was the transport on Maui,we just wanted transport into Lahaina from the dock,and had to wait over an hour for a Taxi,and would have been the same wait or more for the shuttle bus which we at first started to queue for in a really long line,and the buses were quite small.
I am a repeat customer with NCL. I don't see any reason to look elsewhere unless NCL doesn't provide a tour we are looking for. They are top notch professionals who still treat the customer with respect and listen to the customer's needs and try their best to meet these needs--some of them special. Thank you for the memorable time we had on this recent trip as well.
We had a wonderful time the cruise was great! We love Hawaii.
We had a good vacation.
This, I believe, was the third cruise we had booked through Affordabletours. As before, we were extremely pleased with our whole experience!
I still believe that the cabin(8190) was not a true upgrade from NCL. The cabin was very tight and what they said was a family balcony, was no different from any other balcony for 2 people with 2 chairs. However, we had a wonderful time and saw the differences between the Hawian Islands and the life styles of the people. Affordable Tours, as usual, did their best to help us in all of our planning. Additionally, our ship board credits were taken care of.as agreed. We will be in touch with you when planning another trip. Thanks again
