Things to Do on a Hawaii Cruise with Holland America Line

During this event you’ll also be served lunch made with fresh ingredients from local farms.
- A Tale of Two Palaces: Hawaii’s Royal History (Honolulu, Hawaii)
Your first visit is to Queen Emma’s Summer Palace. This was the home of the wife of King Kamehameha IV where you’ll see a mix of Victorian and Hawaiian artifacts and interesting royal memorabilia. You’ll travel through the rainforest through the Pali Lookout and arrive at the Iolani Palace, where Hawaii’s last two monarchs lived. You’ll be guided through this palace while learning about King Kalakaua and his sister, Queen Lili’uokalani.

Then you’ll visit the Mountain Thunder Coffee Farm where Kona Coffee is made. Finally, take a hike in the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Park to see the sacred temples and petroglyphs of ancient Hawaiians. While at the beach, keep your eyes peeled for green sea turtles, dolphins and whales.
- Catch a Wave Surf Lesson (Lahaina, Hawaii)

- Heaven and Earth (Nawiliwili Kauai, Hawaii)
You’ll go airborne to get an unbelievable view of the vibrant Waimea Canyon and the spectacular Napali Coast. You’ll see waterfalls and a seemingly never ending view of greenery. After you return to the ground you’ll drive along the coconut coastline where movies like Jurassic Park and South Pacific were filmed. You’ll stop at the Kilauea Lighthouse, built in 1913, and the Hanalei Pier. Then have a picnic lunch at Anini Beach Park or Hanalei Bay.
- Paradise Cove Orchid Luau (Honolulu, Hawaii)
Celebrate your time in Hawaii with the traditional party, a luau. Eat outdoors on the beach as you are entertained by fire dancers, hula dancers and the competition of Hawaiian games. You’ll also get a chance to try some Polynesian crafts and, of course, indulge in traditional Hawaiian foods.
If you’ve got wanderlust, then Holland America’s ms Oosterdam is the ship for you. The onboard atmosphere is highlighted by a dazzling giant Waterford crystal globe that hangs from the ceiling in the ship’s atrium, representing the travels this ship has and will carry out. Even before reaching your first destination, you’ll be filled with interesting travel tid bits. For instance, you can take a digital workshop where you can learn how to make a virtual scrapbook. Holland America also introduced a new program called On Location with activities and onboard experiences that feature traditions from the regions in which the ms Oosterdam is sailing. If you are sailing to Hawaii, expect a hula lesson and some pineapple themed dishes at the lido deck cafe.
