Perfect Ports… DISCOVER HONOLULU— as experienced on Celebrity Cruises’ 10-night cruise (Vancouver-Honolulu) “I really love Hawaii and visiting the different islands on a cruise is a wonderful way to experience the diversity of this exotic destination. Each island—from Oahu to Maui to Big Island—has its own unique flavor. Honolulu holds a special place in my heart, though!”

Honolulu is all about historic landmarks and iconic sites like Pearl Harbour, Mission Houses and the Grand Circle Tour, all of which co-exist with the amazing shopping, entertainment, nightlife and cuisine of modern Waikiki with its beachfront culture and happening vibe.
