No matter which cruise itinerary you choose, you will be treated to the Aloha spirit from the moment you board your Princess ship. To get the most out of your Hawaii cruise vacation, we recommend booking your land excursions early so you can spend time exploring each of the four main islands: Maui, Oahu, Kauai, and The Big Island.
Maui, or Lahaina as it is known by natives of Hawaii, is the historical epicenter of the island chain and was once designated as the playground of royal officials under King Kamehameha's rule. Maui is the second-largest island of the chain, and it is home to lush green valleys, the iconic Molokini Crater, and Haleakala State Park.
While visiting Maui, join in on memorable shore excursions that include whale watching on a guided motorboat tour, snorkeling the coast of the island, the Atlantis Submarine Adventure, a Segway tour of the beach, a guided tour of the pineapple plantation, or a scenic bicycle ride around Haleakala, just to name a few.
Kauai, or Nawiliwili, is known as "the garden island" thanks to its lush landscape and picture-perfect views. This island is home to popular points of interest, including the North Shore, Kilauea Lighthouse, Grove Farm Homestead, and Waimea Canyon. Kauai features a small community vibe and is a place where you can really immerse yourself in the local culture while also being able to explore its diverse natural wonders.
On this island, Princess Cruises offers 21 exhilarating land excursions, like the Kauai hiking adventure, where you can explore the woodland hills in the company of a local guide; the Allerton & McBryde Tropical Gardens & Waterfall tour, which is a half-day excursion and comes complete with a prepared meal; a Hollywood in Hawaii tour, where you will get to see the filming locations from movies like The Descendants, Jurassic Park, and Pirates of the Caribbean; or take a trip to Kipu Ranch for activities like ziplining and hiking through the jungle.
Every Princess Cruises itinerary includes a port-of-call destination stop at The Big Island, which is one of the most popular islands for tourists who really want to discover the natural side of Hawaii. Not only is The Big Island the youngest of the chain but it is also where you will find Hawaii's largest mountain – Mauna Loa.
Explore The Big Island on your own and discover glistening black sand beaches as far as the eye can see, a landscape that is enveloped in lush rainforests, and crystal-clear ocean water that begs for you to take a swim or try out your snorkeling skills.
Sign up for one of the 19 land and shore excursions offered by Princess Cruises and partake in adventures like a Hilo town highlights guided tour, a hike around the most active volcanos in America, a trip to the Macadamia Nut Shop and Tropical Garden Zoo, or a Taste of Hawaii culinary event at Hawaii Volcanos National Park.

Not only is Oahu a powerhouse in the culinary, shopping, and city life scene, but it is also where you will find the historic Pearl Harbor Naval Base and Pearl Harbor & USS Arizona Memorial. Oahu is a cultural hub where you can immerse yourself in the Polynesian lifestyle while enjoying the perks of a dreamy Hawaiian vacation.
