NEW HAWAII CRUISES 2021
Cruises to Hawaii 2021 take you to postcard-perfect beaches and lush rainforests
Our new 2021 Hawaii sailings bring together the best premium cruise line with some of the top vacation destinations on the planet. The stunningly revolutionized Celebrity Eclipse® is the perfect complement to paradise, offering 10-night sailings from Honolulu to Vancouver, with an overnight stay in Maui and visits to both sides of the Big Island.
Ready for the ultimate island-hopping journey? Discover our new 18-night Transpacific sailings between Honolulu and Sydney that not only bring you the best of Hawaii, but also introduce you to the alluring islands of the South Pacific, including the dream destinations of Tahiti and Bora Bora. In Tahiti, one of the world’s top honeymoon destinations, you’ll also find soaring mountainscapes, world-class beaches, and in-depth explorations and homages to Polynesian culture.
Before you set off for tropical paradise in Hawaii, fall in love with British Columbia. Vancouver is a well-loved city for its open, friendly locals, a growing foodie scene, and impressive landscapes. At Stanley Park, spot local wildlife, walk along breathtaking beaches and hiking trails, sample delicious dishes, or visit Canada’s largest aquarium. Hikers will especially love the dramatic views from the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which promises an adventure navigating through lush forest. Breathe in Vancouver’s fresh mountain air while still admiring that you’re not too far inland where you can’t find a beach. Cosmopolitan and au naturale, Vancouver balances a modern, massive skyscape with stunning natural beauty.
You can’t go to Hawaii and miss out on Honolulu, one of the Big Island’s most iconic places. Spend time teaching the family about the important history of Pearl Harbor, or go turtle watching at Hanauma Bay. Hike until you reach the incredibly lush Manoa Falls, or spend the afternoon at the base of Diamond Head, one of the island’s largest active volcanoes. Animal appreciators shouldn’t miss out on a trip to the Honolulu Zoo or the Waikiki Aquarium, while art aficionados can’t leave without an afternoon of admiring over 50,000 works of art at the Honolulu Art Museum.
Hilo is located on the eastern coast of the Big Island and is the ideal introduction to Hawaii’s incredible possibilities for adventure, like zip-lining excursions, rainforest hikes, or gazing up at breathtaking waterfalls. Hilo is also home to the southernmost winery in the United States. Top sites include the East Hawaii Cultural Center, where you can dive into the history of the Big Island, and the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, which pays tribute to the area’s stunning ecology. If you’ve never seen black sand before, head to Richardson Ocean Park for a dramatic view. The Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo are modeled in the style of traditional Japanese gardens, making for a peaceful afternoon outing.
Ready to surf? Kailua Kona is one of Hawaii’s top surfing destinations. Plus, it’s a fisherman’s paradise, where deep-sea fishing for mahi-mahi, tuna, and marlin are all potential afternoon excursions. Tour an authentic, local Kona coffee farm and bring home some freshly roasted beans to remember your trip by. Relax at Magic Sands Beach Park, or look for giant sea turtles on a day trip to Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park, a designated national historic landmark.
As one of the ports of call on 2021 Hawaii cruises, Victoria offers a posh look at British Columbia, a metropolitan getaway that resembles a period movie in person. Take a tour of Craigdarroch Castle. Spend an afternoon touring art galleries. With its colonial touches and English sensibilities, Victoria will offer a fascinating contrast from island life.
In Lahaina, residents treat their home with respect and kindness, right down to the trees and soil. See one of the most beloved trees on the island, a nearly 150-year-old Banyan tree in downtown Lahaina—which is also the oldest tree on Maui. Humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins are frequently spotted from the Pacific waters. Swimming, diving, and snorkeling are favorite things to do during a day in the Maui sun.
In 2021, Celebrity Solstice will be refreshed and ready to take on Hawaii with you. Modern design, cozy staterooms with eXhale® bedding featuring CashmereSM mattresses you can relax right into, and reimagined culinary delights will take your vacation to a whole new level. We’re also introducing The Retreat®, a luxe getaway within your getaway for suite-class guests. Spend the day on the private Retreat® Sundeck. Stop in for complimentary snacks and drinks in the Retreat® Lounge. On Solstice, we’re also leveling up your spa experience like never before. Celebrity Solstice is slated for revolution in October 2021.
By April 2021, Celebrity Eclipse® will be the latest ship in the Celebrity fleet to be revolutionized, a stunning transformation unveiling new restaurants, venues, experiences, and exclusive amenities. Savor an incredible five-course meal designed by our new Global Culinary Brand Ambassador, Chef Daniel Boulud. Relax in spacious lounges, bars, and venues, including the spa, designed to elevate your vacation to new heights. Explore the future of the Celebrity Eclipse. It’s where we’re headed.
Shore excursions in Hawaii offer a mix of heart-thumping excitement and laid-back relaxation for every type of traveler. Zipline the longest course on the Big Island. Discover Polynesian cultural practices and experience an authentic Hawaiian luau. Watch fire-dancers in an age-old tradition in Lahaina, or take a farm-to-table tour of a Kona coffee farm. Hike in lush forest across bridges and through local fauna. Swim under a waterfall, an ideal way to cool off on a hot day. Satisfy your curiosities about Hawaii’s history with an in-depth exploration of the events leading up to Pearl Harbor. Rivers, rainforests, gorges, and deep-diving caverns are ripe for exploration. Pack comfortable shoes for a hike or to scale a dormant volcano with the help and insights of a guide.
In Hilo, check out the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you can bike through the stunning landscape at the rim of the Kilauea volcano. See the magnificent Rainbow Falls near Hilo, which reflects a colorful spectrum of light at the base of the massive waterfall. In Honolulu, American history buffs can explore the U.S. Naval Base, which is where the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor occurred. You might know Kailua-Kona as the beating heart of Hawaii’s coffee industry, where Kona beans are well loved and make an excellent souvenir to bring back home. Tour a local coffee farm or try a coffee tasting during a day in Kailua-Kona.
There’s a reason why Maui is one of the top-visited islands of Hawaii year after year. Some of the best beaches in the world await you on the island of Maui, which has nearly 30 miles of beach to explore. At Haleakala National Park, venture up to Honolulu’s highest peak. Take a dip in the pools at Ohe’o Gulch. Maui is home to plenty of luxury resorts, fun boutique shopping, and remote hideaways for those who crave an adventure off the beaten path, like a drive down the winding Hana Road.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Hawaii cruise vacation if you didn’t explore the plentiful opportunities to swim, snorkel, and soak up the sun. Diving in Hawaii is a bucket-list item for millions of people for the area’s beautiful clear waters with high visibility and exciting chances to cavern-dive. Of course, a cruise vacation means you can spend the days lounging or adventuring, but you’ll always have your home at sea to return to, where world-class cuisine, intuitive service, and inclusive amenities make vacation that much sweeter. Since Hawaii is one of the most-visited destinations in the world, be sure to give patronage to the local shop owners and economy.
In 2021, Hawaii cruises make for ideal honeymoons, exciting family getaways, celebrations of friendship, or a complete reset and chance to unplug in one of the world’s most beautiful tropical destinations. Hawaii isn’t a place that’s meant to be rushed through. It’s a place of savoring, of being in the moment as the sun warms your skin, as that first sip of coffee soothes you, as you savor and explore new culinary worlds. Hawaii is waiting for you.
