Hawaii/Hilo, Hawaii, USA » 12 n 6 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.
Jan 24, Friday
Oahu/Honolulu, Hawaii, USA (overnight) » 8 am  
"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.

Feb 3, Monday
Guam/Agana, USA » 8 am 6 pm
The island of Guam is the westernmost unincorporated territory of the United States and is the largest of the Mariana archipelago. Guam is surrounded by a large barrier reef and is bordered to the southwest by the Marianas Trench, the deepest known area of the ocean. The earliest known inhabitants were the ancient Chamorros, who originated from Southeast Asia. However, since Magellan landed in 1521, this island has attracted settlers from many lands. As a result of the island's location and cultural make-up, Guam is considered part of Micronesia. During World War II, Guam played an important strategic role in the Pacific Theater. Numerous landmarks and memorials remain a stark reminder to the island's turbulent past. Today, Guam's natural beauty and history provide a never-ending source of interest. To the north is a plateau of rolling hills and cliffs, while to the south are mountains and valleys. The graceful remains of Spanish buildings, plazas and bridges may still be seen in Agana, while the latte stone foundations of ancient Chamorro thatch huts are preserved in parks and jungle areas. We welcome you ashore with a full complement of sightseeing excursions allowing you to discover Guam from the sea, air or by land.
Feb 4, Tuesday
Saipan, Mariana Islands » 8 am 5 pm

The Mariana archipelago, a chain of 15 tropical isles located between Indonesia Japan, is home to Saipan, the largest of the islands and part of a Commonwealth of the United States. At the south end of the chain is Guam, which is a US territory. Getting Saipan pinned on a map may sound somewhat complicated—Asian, yet under US jurisdiction, east of the Philippines and north of New Guinea—yet  it is exactly this kind of complexity that makes Saipan such an interesting destination. The island boasts both marvelous beaches and rugged mountains, along with WWII history and exciting chances to play in the surf and on the turf. Take your pick of five golf courses, two designed by Greg Norman. Do some scuba diving or snorkeling in inviting waters. Trek the trails of the bird sanctuary. For a real taste of local culture, sample locally grown mango or freshly caught tuna.

Okinawa/Naha, Japan » 7 am 5 pm
Okinawa is the southernmost of Japan's main islands and lies 500 miles beyond the archipelago. Unlike other parts of Japan, Okinawa has its own, separate history stemming from the Ryukyu Kingdom of the 15th century. The nostalgia of royalty remains to this day, as sacred temples and an imperial castle blend with imposing skyscrapers and modern freeways. Though poor in natural resources, the people of Okinawa became skillful mariners, turning the island into a thriving center of trade. Today, its unique culture combines influences from Europe, China, Japan and Southeast Asia. During World War II, Okinawa was the only location in Japan where the Allies landed. From 1945 to 1972, the island was under the control of the United States military and numerous US military bases are still active today. Beyond the modern capital of Naha lie peaceful panoramas of hills dotted with blooming bougainvillea. Due to its tropical climate, sugar cane fields, luminous seas and white beaches, Okinawa is sometimes known as Japan's Hawaii.

Tokyo/Yokohama, Japan (overnight) » 1 pm  
Japan's capital, Tokyo, and its bustling port of Yokohama form a vast urban complex that boasts a unique combination of energy and orderliness.

Fusing the vitality of a modern metropolis with the stately elegance of yesteryear, Tokyo is truly unique. From the timeless beauty of the Meiji Shrine to the glittering Ginza district and impressive Tokyo Tower, this international giant is a complex blend of East and West. Houses of wood and paper stand beside towering steel skyscrapers, while kimono-clad women stroll beside teenagers who have created a fashion all their own.

The timeless Imperial Palace bears testament to Japan's enduring traditions. Despite encroaching urban development, it continues to exist in a verdant parkland of isolation.

Images of the vibrant metropolis of Tokyo, which is home to more than 11 million people, will create memories of a lifetime.
