Combine the languid allure of the tropics with big-city sophistication, then add the spirit of aloha, and you've got Honolulu. This Pacific crossroads features museums, dazzling beaches, historic Pearl Harbor and spectacular sunrises over Diamond Head. Gardenias and jasmine blanket the air with a heady fragrance, and pink sunsets cast a magical glow over fabled Waikiki Beach.
The sun-blessed Kona coast stretches 80 miles along macadamia nut orchards, famous coffee plantations and some of the most important sites in Hawaiian history. Captain Cook came ashore here and died at the hands of angry natives. The coast is also famous for water sports, and the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament is a world-renowned annual event.
Fanning Island, Republic of Kiribati
Once you've spent a day of leisure on Fanning Island in the Republic of Kiribati, you may never want to leave. NCL's Pacific hideaway is awash with bright white beaches and clear azure lagoons. The natives are warm, friendly people who smile often and easily and are unspoiled to the outside world.
Gaze up from this charming town and see snow-capped Mauna Kea volcano. It's just one of the scenic marvels in this exotic greenhouse of lush tropical plants, towering banyan trees, thundering falls and enough flowers to fill a rainbow. Arid deserts, steaming fissures and volcanoes that blow their tops are just as impressive.
Step ashore to white sandy beaches, swaying palms, and Hawaii's turbulent history: a saga of Maui chiefs, covetous whalers and self-righteous missionaries. Once the seat of power for the Hawaiian monarchy, Lahaina became a drowsy sugar town and missionary stronghold after the capital was moved to Honolulu in 1845.
On the sacred "Garden Island," the sweet smell of mokihana berries permeates the air and the lush green landscape intoxicates the senses. At Waimea Canyon, the union of water, sunshine, clouds and canyon walls creates the most colorful rainbows imaginable. This is where native Hawaiians come for the scenery.
