The Luxury: Discover the best of Hawaii on a 7-night Norwegian Cruise Line sailing in April or May, with a convenient Saturday-to-Saturday itinerary that starts (and ends) in Honolulu. The cruise stops at Maui, the Big Island, and Kauai and offers exciting shore excursions, like a Circle of Fire helicopter ride over the worlds most active volcano and a visit to the thundering Akaka Falls. The well-equipped Pride of America boasts 10 restaurants, six bars, four outdoor hot tubs, and much more. The Value: At press time, rates ranged from $1,399 for balcony rooms (or $200/night) and $1,099 for oceanview rooms ($157/night) in April and May. For identical cruises over peak summer months, these cabin rates shoot up to $2,249 and $1,799, respectively. Youll save up to $450 by going now.
The Catch: The cruise sails round-trip from Honolulu, which could add significant airfare to the tally.
