O'ahu Explorer Hyatt Waikiki Ocean View Cruisetour

from Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

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 Center and Kualoa Ranch. Wander through the surfing town of Haleiwa, part of Oahu’s legendary North Shore where surfers hang ten. Honor the lives lost at Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona Memorial, and walk in General MacArthur’s footsteps on the Surrender Deck of the battleship USS Missouri.

This is the time to discover what paradise means to you, whether it’s pounding the surf, exploring the mountains and untouched beauty of Kualoa Mountain Ridge, or learning an authentic hula dance. So much to see, do and experience. And it’s all from Norwegian, the only cruise line to sail year-round from Honolulu.

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.
