Hawaii is a magnificent meld of lush rainforests, sky-high waves, ancient kingdoms, World War II history and beauty of volcanic proportions. And now Norwegian Cruise Line lets you explore Oahu's top attractions in depth on a land-based tour before your 7-day cruise. Experience the traditions of some of Hawaii's original habitants at the Polynesian Cultural Centre and Kualoa Ranch. Wander through the surfing town of Haleiwa, part of Oahu's legendary North Shore where surfers hang ten. Honour the lives lost at Pearl Harbour's USS Arizona Memorial, and walk in General MacArthur's footsteps on the Surrender Deck of the battleship USS Missouri.

So much to see, do and experience. And it's all from Norwegian, the only cruise line to sail year-round from Honolulu.
