These days it less and less cruise lines are stationing ships in , and with good reason. These island-hopping voyages often carry a price tag of $800-$1,500 for interior cabins — a hefty amount when most people are staying close to home to conserve.
Recently, Norwegian Cruise Line made a surprising announcement that it would be adding cruises to Hawaii, and even more shocking are the jaw-dropping rates that the company is offering on fall sailings. With rates starting from as little as $499, you’ll save a staggering 82 percent off.
The recently-refurbished Pride of America embarks from Honolulu and heads to Kahului, on the island of Maui where it will remain for two days before continuing on to Hilo, on the Big Island. Here, passengers can tour the dramatic Volcanoes National Park, or visit the botanical gardens before continuing on the Kailua.
After that, is a visit to the “garden state” of Kauai, named so because of its rich vegetation and stunning landscape. The ship will spend two days docked in Kauai before returning to Honolulu. There are several sailing dates available for these 7-night cruises through November 28, and balcony staterooms are also available starting from $699. In addition, NCL is tossing in up to $250 onboard spending credit, based on cabin category.
