Opportunities for discovery abound. Stroll through Chinatown, shop at Union Square or browse through Fisherman's Wharf. Or perhaps, the attractions of North Beach will beckon.

Oahu/Honolulu, Hawaii, USA (overnight) » 12 n  
"Aloha" and welcome to Oahu, Hawaii's great "gathering place." Asian- and American-influenced cultures combine to create a lifestyle where the tropical tempos of Polynesia prevail and the aloha spirit pervades every aspect of the culture.

Honolulu and Oahu are the center of island life and boast sandy beaches, endearing smiles and exotic tropical flowers. Nearby, elegant resorts and towering high-rises line the gentle curve of Waikiki Beach. In the distance, majestic Diamond Head Crater lies on the horizon beyond your Crystal ship.

The choices are many. Relive the historic events of Pearl Harbor, explore tropical rainforests or witness the creation of island culinary magic.

Maui/Lahaina, Hawaii, USA » 8 am 12m
In addition to possessing marvelous beaches, this second-largest island of the Hawaiian archipelago boasts one of the great natural wonders of the world - Haleakala, the largest dormant volcano on the planet. Nicknamed the "Valley Isle," the island of Maui boasts a string of jungle valleys and is flanked on two sides by volcanoes, Puu Kukui to the west and the great Haleakala to the east. According to legend, the Hawaiian demigod Maui pulled up both ends of the island from the sea bottom with his fishhook to create this Pacific paradise. Resting between these two towering craters is central Maui, named after the island's legendary creator. Cradled on its western shore at the foot of Puu Kukui is picturesque Lahaina, now designated a national historic landmark. In days gone by, it was one of the principal whaling centers of the Pacific. Now it brims with reminders of its legendary seafaring past. Beyond Lahaina lie tranquil valleys of serene majesty, the golden sands of Kaanapali Beach and Haleakala's immense crater.
Jun 5, Sunday
Hawaii/Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, USA » 8 am 6 pm
The legendary Kona Coast is famous for its fine weather and inviting beaches. The Hawaiian people tend to personify this area and speak of it as being "lean and voluptuous." Its being sunny and dry is described as "Kona sunning herself." A district of the Big Island, Kona encompasses the western coast and lies at the foot of towering Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Here one finds bright, clear days and magnificent sunsets. While the island's raw volcanic landscape can hardly be described as "pretty," you won't want to miss the eerie Volcanoes National Park. In contrast, the string of dazzling resorts that have sprung up along the coast present quite a different face. Lush landscapes and gardens have been created over what were once only lava flows. At the center of this transformation is the bustling town of Kailua. Remember to "hang loose" while you are here. No one is in much of a hurry, and there is no need to rush when you are in paradise.
Jun 6, Monday
Hawaii/Hilo, Hawaii, USA » 8 am 3 pm
Welcome to Hawaii. The Big Island is the youngest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands and Hilo is its largest city. Commanding Hawaii's wet eastern Hamakua Coast, Hilo is surrounded by lush forest, resplendently draped in flowers and greenery all year. Perhaps this natural gift is best showcased in Hilo's huge orchid farms. Since Hawaii is also the largest member of the volcanic chain, it is fairly easy for visitors to find a secluded spot on a beach or a quiet trail traversing one of its natural preserves. Its lush eastern rainforests contrast sharply with the eerie lunar-like landscape of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a must-see for first time visitors. The old Lyman House Museum, a restored 19th-century home, provides an interesting, historical look at the region. One should also visit some of the beautiful waterfalls in the area. The western Kona Coast is widely known for its elegant resorts, rocky shore and agreeable dry climate. The lifestyle here can only be described as "relaxed." People often signify their happy mood with the friendly shaka sign, made by folding one's three center fingers to the palm and shaking the wrist back and forth with the thumb and pinky extended. This is a common greeting in the islands and it indicates that all is going well.

Ensenada, Mexico » 4 pm 9 pm
Ensenada, the third-largest city in the state of Baja, and its environs are famed for many things. One is the sunny and mild weather, which helps yield fine wines considered to be the best in Mexico. Another is the surf. Ensenada boasts several celebrated surfing spots, including San Miguel Beach and Three Ms, or Tres Emes. A third lure is off-road racing, with the Baja 1000 being held every year in November and the Baja 500 taking place in June. Rivaling Carnival in Rio and Mardi Gras in New Orleans is Ensenada’s Carnaval, bringing thousands of revelers to the streets for six fun-filled days. Migrating gray whales draw their fair share of travelers as well. Certainly, this is only a partial list of Ensenada’s seasonal and perennial attractions. During your visit, you are sure to discover additional reasons Ensenada is called the “Cinderella of the Pacific.”
