Take a Bite Out of The Big Pineapple on Our Cruises to Hawaii
Think of Honolulu, and visions of swaying palm trees, beautiful beaches, and hula no doubt dance to mind. But that’s just a scratch on the azure surf(ace) of this cosmopolitan capital city.
Located on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Honolulu is also home to stunning scenery, excellent national landmarks, and yes, incredible beaches—including world-famous Waikiki, worth a dip for the people-watching alone. But if you want more seclusion, Kailua, Kokololio, and Waimea Bay Beach Parks are all within an hour’s drive.
For retail therapy, go to Ala Moana Center, the world’s largest open-air shopping complex, with over 350 stores and restaurants. Refuel on Hawaiian fare like poke (raw fish salad), loco moco (a bowl of rice with a hamburger patty, gravy, and fried egg on top), and saimin (a noodle soup dish combining the best of Asian influences).
And no Azamara® cruise to Hawaii is complete without visiting the USS Arizona Memorial and the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. It’s a vivid reminder of the attack on Pearl Harbor, one of the most pivotal moments in American history.
