About this trip

WHY SETTLE for seeing just one island on a Hawaii resort-based vacation when you can cruise in style and explore four island jewels? Sailing with Princess is a far better vacation value, and you’ll visit the top-rated Hawaiian Islands — Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island — without all the time-consuming hassle of island hopping by plane. Plan now on this unique departure to get away after Christmas, sailing south to Hawaii and celebrating New Year’s en route! Enjoy relaxing days of sea to unwind after holiday season. Visit the Hawaiian Islands without having to unpack and repack or spend time in airports. Grand Princess will spoil you while winter blankets Central Illinois. Our package includes all the items you want: 46 meals, gratuities to waiters, busboys, cabin attendant and baggage handlers plus travel insurance (don’t worry if you can’t go due to illness—the travel insurance covers that for a full refund). Book now for even more value getting a bonus of hundreds of dollars in “On Board Credit” that you can apply to optional shore excursions or other features.


 • Cruise to, through and back from Hawaii • Round trip air fare • San Francisco Hotel plus choice of cruise stateroom accommodations • Celebrate New Year’s while sailing south to Hawaii • No jet-lag way to see Hawaii with no airports and packing/repacking at each island

We truly enjoyed all aspects of the Princess Cruise including Stevie Jay’s coordination and Bill’s management of all travel to and from San Francisco via Chicago’s O’Hare and Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. We had several seasoned travelers wishing to share their experiences. Princess was outstanding with their meal plan and treating us as their special guests for the fifteen days. Highlights were our ability to chose our day trips to Volcanoes National Park, Pearl Harbor National Monument, Kolohani Plantation and Haleakala National Park. We will travel with Stevie Jay and We Travel again as long as we are mobile and enthusiastic about traveling!
I had a wonderful time. Food was great and the show, Yuletide Celebration, was outstanding! It was my first time for Yuletide Celebration, and I am looking forward to next year.
Great company. The show was awesome. Even better than last year. Loved the singers, orchestra and emcee. Really put us in the holiday spirit. The beef house dinner service was slow and found ourselves helping them!!! The trip was great.
Canyon Country: Fantastic trip. Awesome views of the national parks. Optional excursion to Monument Valley was a highlight for us. Mary Beth always provides excellent service. This tour was no exception! Bob and Cindy

Great trip experience. All canyons were on our "to see" list. Peter was great as our guide. Anna was super good driver and kept a really clean coach. Accommodations were well located, well appointed, pleasant and clean. Dining experiences were great. Ready to go again.
