Join me for the trip to the Hawaiian Islands in March of 2020. Easter is not until the 2nd week of April so it gives us plenty of time to get away from the winter weather and enjoy a couple weeks in the sun and still be back in time for the usual Easter activities. March is a delightful time to visit Hawaii because the whales are having their babies and we can often see them breeching from the shore. We will depart on Thursday, March 5th, and fly to Hawaii. Arriving at our hotel we will be a block from Waikiki Beach. It will be early evening there and due to the time change, it will be a long day for us. On Friday, we’ll relax – sleep in if you choose – and learn your way around the hotel and surrounding area. Perhaps hanging out on Waikiki Beach will be enjoyable for you. On Saturday afternoon we will head to the ship terminal and board the Norwegian Cruise Line’s “Pride of America” for a seven day cruise. The cruise will take us to the four major islands where you will have an opportunity to purchase shore excursions of your choice on each island. The meals on the cruise ship and many ship activities will be included for your enjoyment. Returning to Honolulu, we will stay for three additional nights at the same hotel in Waikiki. Since you’ll already be rested and know your way around, you can really enjoy some local activities. I will schedule day trips to Pearl Harbor and a city tour as well as a day to the Polynesian Cultural Center. These are places that I recommend everyone take time to see especially if it is your first trip to Hawaii. Our Detroit bound flight leaves in the evening and is an overnight flight. Aloha!
