The Norwegian Jewel, which was just refurbished in 2017 is offering cruise enthusiasts the opportunity to experience two amazing destinations in a single unforgettable trip. This 13-day cruise departs from Honolulu, Oahu on Friday and spends the next five days touring the ports of Kahului, Maui; Hilo, Hawaii and Nawiliwili, Kauai. During these first days of your adventure, the ship will be docked in port for at least ten hours each day to allow you to take full advantage of the excursions and sights to see in each location.
The following four days will be spent at sea as you steam toward French Polynesia. The first port of call is Nuku Hiva where you will have a full day to explore the island. The next day is spent at sea, allowing you some time to rest and recuperate from your first taste of French Polynesia before arriving on Moorea the following day, then Bora Bora and Papeete, Tahiti for the last two ports of call on the final two days of the cruise.
French Polynesia is famous for its serene, crystal clear water and abundant sea life. If you are at all interested in snorkeling or scuba diving, Bora Bora and Moorea are unforgettable destinations. Or if your idea of the perfect day in paradise involves dangling your feet in the water between sipping tropical drinks, enjoying a massage on the beach and a magnificent dining experience sampling French Polynesian cuisine, you are also in luck. This ship will be docked for a full ten hours at each island.
All of these amazing adventures and activities might sound too good to be true but that is not the case. And in addition, the price for this cruise is surprisingly affordable. Starting at under $1800 per person, the cost of accommodations, meals, and onboard entertainment is just about $135/ night which is comparable to an average hotel room in many cities. But for this $135 a night you are experiencing some of the most beautiful environments on the planet. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to enjoy both Hawaii and French Polynesia on a single 13-day cruise.
