expensive. There is no way around that. Still, this
trip is well within reach. This is your
chance to see one of the most
beautiful places in the entire world
for as little as $1,500 per
person ($750 air fare, $750 inside cabin).
Hawaii is the
Jewel of the Pacific Ocean. There is so much to see
that you will go crazy having to choose one exotic
destination over another. Will it be a trip to explore a
lush rain forest or an expedition to
witness breathtaking waterfalls?
Or will it be a chance to view orchid-scented botanical
gardens or visit one of the many stunning
beaches? Will you hike atop the lunar landscape of
Hawaii’s lava fields or will you visit Waimea
Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific? These will be
tough decisions, but whatever you choose, you can't miss.
North Shore Sunset,
Oahu, Surf Island
Our cruise departs from Honolulu, Hawaii at 8:00 pm
in the evening. This late
departure time gives you
the whole day to explore Oahu, the most populated of the
Hawaiian Islands. Or come a day or two early
to explore Hawaii’s most populous and famous island
in even greater depth.
Where else can you find monstrous surfing
waves, a multi-billion dollar skyline, high tea at the
beach, and stunning mountains complete with mist, rainbows,
located in a beautiful protected bay with the stunning
Diamondhead Volcano guarding its flank. Honolulu has been
the commercial, political, and cultural center of the
Hawaiian Islands since the 1800s.
Honolulu is a cosmopolitan center that
is renowned for its fabulous
hotels, shopping, restaurants,
Waikiki Beaches and breathtaking views
in every direction.
By far the most popular destination in
Honolulu is Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial.
This destination serves as a
moving tribute to this important
historic event. The USS Arizona has rested in its
watery grave at Pearl Harbor since December 7, 1941. The
overturned hull of this battleship entombed 1,100 sailors
caught unaware by the Japanese bombs that sank this mighty
ship and brought the United States into World War II. The
memorial was built in 1961 as a tribute to all the men and
women who lost their lives on that historic day. The
memorial is 184-feet long and carefully crosses over the
Arizona's mid-section. Openings along the both sides of the
memorial afford a dramatic view of the ship resting on the
floor of the harbor. A marble-walled chapel at the far end
of the memorial lists the names off all the sailors entombed
Maybe you want to put on your swim suit
and head down to Waikiki Beach. Hawaiian for
"Sprouting Water", this is one of the most famous beaches in
the world. The two mile stretch of white sand coast is
fronted by hotels and tourist facilities. The area is
excellent for swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, catamaran
and outrigger canoe rides. It is
a perfect beach with crystal clear water, backed by lush
mountains, laced with clouds and rainbows, as well as the
luxurious hotels which line the shore. You can watch
the surfers or maybe appreciate the local beauties on the
Another excellent suggestion is to rent a car and
check out the a wide variety of
You can the visit the North
Shore with its fabulous surfing waves.
The waters of North Shore feature the famous Bonzai
Pipeline. This coastline is blessed with pristine
white sand beaches and its waters form perfect waves and
tubes. The high surf's waves may reach heights of up to
twenty-five feet plus. The surf can rise quickly going from
two feet to twenty-five feet high and larger during the
course of a day. As a result this area is known for
its world-class surfing. There is also body boarding,
body surfing, great swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving in
the Summer months. And the scenery on the beach itself
is often quite inviting.
The exact origin of surfing is unknown, but most historians
believe that the Polynesians were already well versed in the
sport by the time they migrated to the Hawaiian Islands some
2,000 years ago. Early Hawaiians called surfing "he‘e nalu,"
which literally translates to "wave sliding." During this
time, only high-ranking ali‘i had access to the best surf
spots. King Kamehameha himself was said to be an avid and
Go for a swim or snorkel at
Hanauma Bay. Formed during Oahu’s
last eruption, the area is now a marine preserve with
extensive underwater life.
Hanauma Bay is a "curved" bay
that was declared a protected
marine life conservation area and underwater park in 1967.
This is the very best beach area if you are new to Scuba
diving or snorkeling with a diversified population of fish
and a rich coral reef. The bay floor is the crater of a
volcano that opened up to the ocean when the exterior wall
collapsed. There is a large sandy beach perfect for
sunbathing and there are several hiking trails leading to
breathtaking lookouts. The bay provides some protection
from large ocean waves and allows swimmers a terrific
opportunity to view the reef life in a safer, protected
A favorite thing to do is to visit the hulking
dormant volcanoes Diamond Head and Koko Head.
Diamond Head looms large over the Waikiki. Actually named Le’ahi by Hawaiians, it received its well known name in
the late 1700's when British seamen saw calcite crystals
sparkling in the sunshine and thought they had found
diamonds. A hike to the top of Diamond Head takes about an
hour over a well-worn path. The summit offers a spectacular
360-degree view of Oahu and is a must trip for photography
Definitely check out the fabulous Waimea
Falls Park. This 1800 acre park features botanical
gardens, kayaking, cycling, and of course a fabulous
Waimea Falls is located in the beautiful 1800
acre Waimea Falls Park. In ancient times, the Hawaiians
believed that Waimea had healing powers and they would bring
their wounded soldiers to the waterfall and lay them in the
water for healing. The water has a reddish tint, due to the
iron oxide found in the volcanic soil that flows down from
the mountains by the Waimea River.
Another interesting place to
is the Polynesian Cultural Center,
the only place in the world where you can experience all the
islands of Polynesia in one place.
Watch natives in each village demonstrate crafts and skills
such as creating clothing from bark, stories through dance,
baskets with leaves, and fire by rubbing sticks. During
feature presentations you'll hear intriguing descriptions of
cooking methods, transoceanic travel, and the preservation
of traditions and history without a written language.
A very popular destination in Honolulu is the Iolani Palace
pictured at right. This is the only Royal Palace on US
soil. The Iolani Palace was constructed in 1882 during
King Kalakaua's reign. King K and his sister
Liliuokalani (Lily to her friends) lived in the palace
holding royal court from 1882 to 1893 as well as lavish
balls and banquets. They met a sad end however when in
1893, a group of American businessman staged a successful
coup d'etat ending the monarchy.

arrive at Hilo on the Big Island at 8:00 am.
Hilo is the capital of this
island. This will be the first of two
days on the Big Island, although the days are split up (we
return on Day 5).
The island of Hawaii is the largest of
the Hawaiian Islands, thus its nickname The Big
Island. It is a land
of rare beauty and wonder.
The other nickname of this island is Volcano Island.
The island of Hawaii is 4050 square miles and is home to the
snow-capped, 14000 –foot peaks of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.
These immense mountains are part of
the fiery landscape of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
But Big Island is hardly a volcanic wasteland. There are vast
macadamia nut plantations, black-sand beaches, and
Spend the day exploring the wonders of Kilauea Volcano up
close on a walk through Hawaii Volcanoes National Park or
experience the beauty and ferocity of Hawaii’s active
volcano from above on a helicopter ride. You will be in awe
of the incredible beauty and power of this active volcano
and possibly even get a chance to view molten lava.
Snorkel in the giant tidal ponds of Lava Tree State Park and
experience some of the most extensive and beautiful coral
gardens in the world. Walk through the tropical botanical
garden, where you will see native plants, giant trees,
tropical vegetation and endangered plant species.
January 3, 2006 marked the 23rd anniversary of the Pu`u `O`o
eruption on the east rift zone of Kilauea Volcano. It has
the distinction of being the longest-lived rift zone
eruption in the 200-year-long historic record of Kilauea
Volcano. It is also the most voluminous and one of the most
compositionally variable in the Kilauea historic record.
This on-going eruption has produced a broad field of new
lava flows that have buried over 117 sq km of the volcano's
south flank and added more than 230 hectares of new land to
Lavas from this eruption have unfortunately destroyed
several communities and numerous man-made structures along
the south coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, including 189
houses, a National Park Service Visitor Center at Waha`ula,
a church, a store, the Waha'ula Heiau (a 700 year old
Hawaiian place of worship), and many other ancient Hawaiian
sites. The coastal highway in this part of the Big Island
has been closed for 13 years, as flows covered 14 km of it
with lava now as deep as 35 m.
Afterwards, enjoy an evening sail by Mount Kilauea.
Romantic and mysterious, Kilauea is the most spectacular
active volcano in the world. Since 1998, the island has
grown 560 acres due to volcanic activity. Slithering lava
flows light up the night sky.. Kilauea’s landscape will
fuel daydreams for a lifetime.
Depending upon the size of our group, we will have our SSQQ

Be sure to visit the Haleakala National Park with its 30
mile trail system full of spectacular plants and foliage.
Don’t miss the view from Haleakala, the largest dormant
volcano in the world. The scenic journey to the top takes
you through upcountry Maui. The view from the top at 10,032
feet is magnificent
as you can scan the Pacific in every direction.
Mark Twain once wrote, "It was the most sublime spectacle I
have ever witnessed and I think the memory of it will remain
with me always."
and 4 – We arrive in Maui on Monday at 8:00 am. We have two
full days to enjoy the second largest Hawaiian island. The
ship doesn’t depart until 6:00 pm on Tuesday.
Maui is known for its numerous beaches, rain forests,
waterfalls, and eucalyptus groves.
Maui has many beautiful
attractions. One in particular is the
Maui Tropical Plantation.
This 60 acre working plantation is a fun way to discover
more about Hawaii's rich agricultural history. A tram
ride allows you to visit every corner of the grounds.
There are hints of many goodies to be sampled.
Another popular place to visit is the
Iao Needle (pictured at right), a
2,250 foot cinder cone pinnacle that pierces the clouds.
This state park features lush mountain terrain.
You can combine the impressive natural beauty of Iao
Valley State Park with a visit to the new Maui Ocean Center.
This way you can discover the mysterious world that
lies hidden below the surface of Hawaii’s oceans.
Rent a car and travel the winding roads along the famed Hana
Highway and take in the spectacular scenery: lava cliffs,
tumbling waterfalls, and tropical hillsides.
For 35 miles the Road to Hana twists
through jungle, over bridges, past waterfalls, and along
cliff edges. It slices through a landscape featuring
canyons and gulches carved out by the many streams.
Travel along the West Maui Mountains to Kahakuloa
Valley, home to families who live and practice the ancient
customs as their ancestors have for over 1500 years.
Makena Beach....what a gem! Wide, pristine,
expansive.... and even though many more people are enjoying
its exquisite beauty now than in the days not so long ago
when you had to drive down a long dusty desert road to get
there. However, even though there are now parking lots,
port-a-pottys, and luxury resorts within easy reach, that
element of the wild still lingers. ANYTHING can happen
at Makena....famous for it's "clothing optional" status.
Since we have two full days in Maui, why not travel to
Lahaina? After Honolulu, Lahaina is Hawaii's
second best known town. You can enjoy dozens of
shops, restaurants and historical sites.
It is a superb walking town! The drive is only
45 minutes each way.
Lahaina is best known as a whaling village. In the
New England whaling ships began visiting. The
missionaries were soon to follow. By the 1840s Hawaii
had become the principal forward station of the American
whaling fleet. Lahaina was the favorite port of call
because of its protected offshore waters. The whaling
ships have long disappeared from Lahaina, but this
waterfront town continues to preserve the lively spirit and
look of the salty 1800's.
Waianapanapa State Park is a 122-acre
preserve that encompasses a lovely
black sand beach, dramatic sea caves, natural stone arch,
campground, hiking trails, and remnants of the first road
built around swimming due to strong currents and a rocky
reef. Black sand is the
result of lava the island, the old King's Highway.
The black-sand beach is lovely but dangerous for flowing
into the ocean and shattering when it comes in contact with
the cool water. The volcanic pieces are then smashed against
each other and the shoreline with each wave, thus creating
the black sand. There is a stone bridge, and, a short hike
away, the huge smooth volcanic tubes or caves.

The Kona Coast is a favorite spot
to visit. Located along Hawaii’s western shore, where the
slopes of Mauna Loa and Hualalai meet the sea, the
Kona Coast is a region of endless lava fields and
golden Pacific sunsets. The clear waters are
perfect for diving, snorkeling, and deep-sea

Kealakekua Bay is famous
in Hawaii for an unusual reason. In 1778 James
Cook was the first European to discover these
islands. the spot
where Captain James Cook lost his life.
On a return trip a year later, Cook was murdered in
1779 by island natives. Tensions began over the
theft of a small boat. However Cook's death
was largely an act of vengeance. The natives
were furious at Cook over the earlier murder of one
of their chiefs by a British lieutenant under his

significantly more peaceful. It is one of the best snorkeling spots on the
island. The area is a state park and conservation
site teeming with undersea life. It is a great
place for both experienced snorkelers and novices to

and Kahuna Falls, two impressive Hawaiian
waterfalls. Both are located at
Akaka Falls State Park,
a short 20 minute
drive north of Hilo where we will
be staying. At the park, you will take a
self-guided, 0.4 mile hike through dense tropical
vegetation to see these two towering Hawaiian
waterfalls. This hike
offers a glimpse into the wonders that Hawaii's
tropical rain forests offer. Breathe in the
fragrance of jungle flowers as you travel along the
short (about ¼ mile) trail to the falls.
Here you can spot a huge
variety of palm trees, banana plants, banyan trees,
bamboo groves, impatiens, and a plethora of vines
worthy of a Tarzan movie as you
walk along the path.
Common wisdom says to visit Kahuna Falls
first. It is the lesser of the two waterfalls
at 400 ft. This amazing waterfalls
will set the stage for the even
more impressive Akaka Falls, which drops 442
ft. into a pool of water below.
Of the two falls in the park,
Akaka Falls with its water falling over a 420 foot
drop, is definitely the
more spectacular. Be sure to walk all the way to the
edge of the path so that you can see the falls from
top to bottom, including the pool below. You will be
a fair distance from the falls so you don't need to
worry about getting wet from spray.
Hamakua Coast is a scenic
drive through former sugar cane plantation lands now
planted with trees and dotted with small farms of
ginger, papayas and many other flowers and foods.
The Hamakua Coast is a stunningly beautiful place
whose history and leisurely way of life are
treasures its communities want to preserve.

the Waipio Valley
is often referred to as the
"Valley of the Kings". It
is the largest and most southern of the seven
valleys on the windward side of the Kohala
Mountains. It is a
mile wide at the coastline and is almost six miles
deep. On both sides of the valley there are cliffs
reaching almost 2000 feet with hundreds of cascading
waterfalls, including one of Hawaii's most
celebrated waterfalls - Hi`ilawe.

On both sides of the valley
there are cliffs reaching almost 2000 feet with
hundreds of cascading waterfalls, including one of
Hawaii's most celebrated waterfalls - Hi`ilawe. The
road into the valley is very steep (a 25% grade). In
order to travel into the valley, you must either
ride down in a four-wheel drive vehicle or hike down
to the valley floor.
Waipi`o means "curved water" in the Hawaiian
language. The lovely Waipi`o River flows through the
valley until it enters the ocean at the beach.
The Waipi`o Valley is often referred to as the
"Valley of the Kings" because it was once the home
to many of the rulers of Hawaii. The valley has both
historical and cultural importance to the Hawaiian
people due to its status as
the most fertile and productive valley on the Big
Island of Hawaii.

We arrive in Kauai at 8:00 AM on Thursday and depart at
2:00 PM on Friday.
We have saved the best for last.
We are about to spend two days on most spectacular
island on the planet - Kauai, home of Jurassic Park.
Kauai is so green it has been nicknamed the “Garden
Island”. Waterfalls abound on Kauai
and for a good reason. Kauai is reported to be the
"wettest" place on earth. Streams, lakes,
waterfalls are everywhere to be seen.
Where do you start? The island is ringed by
perfect white sand beaches.

thick rain forest.
Or do you prefer rain forests? Inside
Kauai is a lush, largely unexplored paradise.
The inaccessibility of Kauai's most stunning terrain
undoubtedly adds to its mystical appeal.
At the heart of the nearly circular island is a dense
jungle of vegetation. This jungle is nestled in a
narrow bowl suspended a mile high amid thin jagged
ridges that rim deep valleys and canyons. Be very
careful. Rumors have it that several velociraptors
escaped while filming the movie.
Or do you want to see a beautiful beach? Lovely
Hanalei Bay on Kauai’s North Shore may be the most
beautiful beach setting in all of Hawaii. Hanalei Bay is
a long half-moon of sandy beach carved into the base of
a sheer cliff on one side and narrowing into a rocky
point on the other. The beach is a great spot for
walking or throwing a Frisbee around. At the westernmost
curve of the bay, you'll find a calm shoreline where the
water is relatively quiet even when most of the north
shore is too rough for safe swimming.
the largest bay on the island of Kauai. Behind the beach
is an utterly breathtaking backdrop of waterfalls and
emerald mountain peaks wrapped in mist, soaring
thousands of feet towards the heavens. The beach is two
miles long, 125 feet wide, and bordered by the Hanalei
River to the east and the Waipa River to the west. The
ocean bottom slopes gently to overhead depths, and there
are large coral reefs at both ends of the bay. Every
ocean recreation activity you can imagine is available,
from boating and windsurfing to kayaking up the placid
Hanalei River. The bay is very popular with serious
surfers. There is a public boat ramp and a 300-foot long
pier used for fishing and swimming. The many “no dogs”
and “no jumping off the pier” signs are blissfully
Or do you want to see an incredible canyon? Journey to
Waimea Canyon and discover the breathtaking
gorge in the heart of Kauai.
Often called the ‘Grand Canyon
of the Pacific’, Waimea
Canyon is the largest canyon in the Pacific.
It is truly a dramatic sight to behold. The
canyon measures 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more
than 3,500-feet deep. It was carved thousands of years
ago by rivers and floods that flowed from Mount
Waialeale's summit. The lines in the canyon walls depict
different volcanic eruptions and lava flows that have
occurred over the centuries.
Although smaller than the Grand Canyon of
Arizona, Waimea Canyon rivals the beauty. Numerous
lookouts and hikes offer terrific views of every aspect
of this natural wonder. The canyon is protected by the
Koke'e State Park which encompasses 4,345 acres of land
and has 45 miles of trails that run through the canyon
and the nearby Alakai Swamp. The Ranger's Station is
located at the Koke'e Museum has hiking maps of the
area. There are no gas stations along the 40-mile Waimea

Opaekaa Falls conceals a terrific hidden hike. The path
descends a hill that is steep and slippery, so you’ll
want to hold on to tree branches along the way.
The reward at the bottom of the hill is a beautiful,

About the Trip
About the Trip
is one of the most famous vacation destinations in
the world. With a beauty unmatched anywhere
else in the United States, a trip to Hawaii is on
every person's must-see short list.
The Hawaii Trip will be the 11th SSQQ Cruise Trip.
As always, you have the best of both worlds.
You can be alone with your sweetheart on romantic
Kauai or you can hang with the group whenever you
wish. Wherever you go, you will always have
friends. We watch out for each other. At
dinner time when you wish to share tales of your
adventures, you won't be talking to strangers, you
will be talking with friends from home.
We chose this time for two reasons.
Vacationing over Memorial Day will make it easier to
get time off. In addition, the studio will be
closed the entire week. Very convenient.
Our trip will be aboard
Line’s Pride of America.
This ship is a
U.S.-flagged vessel staffed by American officers and
crew. It is a fairly new ship;
it's maiden voyage was in June of 2005.
The Pride of America features a fabulous atrium
covered by a stunning glass dome inspired by
the architecture of the Capitol Building and White
House. The ship holds
2062 passengers. The ship offers an innovative
vacation value! Just the hotel fare alone in Hawaii for 7 days would
exceed the amount for this entire cruise vacation.
Seeing Hawaii by cruise is actually
a very economical way to visit the islands.
Think of the Pride of America as a
floating hotel. A quick check at
