“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.

January 21st
Maui/Lahaina, Hawaii, USA
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.

January 24th
Fanning Island, Republic of Kiribati
A roughly oval coral atoll covered in coconut groves and framed by unspoiled, white-sand beaches and warm, clear water, Fanning Island is a remote, rustic paradise sure to leave lasting memories. One of 33 small islands making up the Republic of Kiribati, Fanning Island is known as Tabuaeran Island to its Micronesian inhabitants. The island is the nearest foreign port to Hawaii, lying approximately 1,000 miles to the south. Discovered by American explorer Captain Edmund Fanning in 1798, the island was annexed by Great Britain in 1889 and gained independence, as did the entire Republic of Kiribati, on July 12, 1979. Due to its remote location, Fanning Island is almost untouched by modern life and is just beginning to open to commerce and tourism. The friendly local people, particularly the island’s engaging children, provide a warm welcome to visitors that include performances of song and dance.

January 25th-26th
Cruising the Pacific Ocean (Overnight)

January 27th
Pago Pago, Samoa
Pago Pago is the capital of American Samoa, a verdant chain of seven South Pacific isles covered with ferns, breadfruit and pananus trees. Populated by Polynesians for over 2,500 years, many experts believe this is the birthplace of Polynesian culture. As you tour the picturesque harbor, shopping for native handcrafts, listen for the local greeting, “talofa lava”: “you are welcome here.”

January 31st
Lautoka, Fiji
To the east of the International Date Line lies an exquisite garland of islands known as Fiji. Dignified smiling people bid you “bula,” or welcome, to their unspoiled homeland. The bustling port town of Lautoka has a population of 44,000. It lies cradled on the western shores of Viti Levu, the largest of Fiji’s 300 idyllic islands. Shop for shell jewelry, wood carvings, woven mats, basketry and masi, the traditional painted bark cloth. Or scour the market for exquisite Indian saris. Not too far distant from our pier are field upon field of lush sugar cane, traditional villages and an orchid wonderland. As the islanders proudly claim, “Fiji is the way the world ought to be.”

February 1st-2nd
Cruising the Pacific Ocean (Overnight)

February 3rd
Waitangi, Bay of Islands, New Zealand
Like a stop in Philadelphia or Colonial Williamsburg, a visit to Waitangi lets you trace the founding of a country. It was here that a treaty between the Maori and the British was formed, making New Zealand part of the British Empire. At the Waitangi National Reserve, one of the most important historic sites in New Zealand, visitors can see the Treaty House where the 1840 treaty was signed, and view a faithful replica of the original document. Other attractions of the Reserve include the ornate Maori meeting house and a massive war canoe. Of course, this being New Zealand, there are many natural attractions as well, including lush forest and spectacular coastline.

February 4th
Auckland, New Zealand (Overnight)
Welcome to Auckland, the “City of Sails.” New Zealand’s largest city is along the shores of an extinct volcanic cone known as Rangitoto, often visible to the east. Auckland’s population of over one million people represents almost a third of the country’s total.

New Zealand seems to have a bit of everything: great natural beauty, friendly people, magnificent glacier-studded mountain ranges, sculpted fjords, pristine untouched beaches, lush rainforest, an endless array of sporting activities, and, not to be forgotten, plenty of sheep and rolling farmland.

Auckland is the perfect city from which to experience most of what New Zealand has to offer. The city lies astride a narrow isthmus between the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean on two harbors, the Waitemata and Manukau. Auckland and New Zealand’s geographic and cultural treasures beckon for your discovery.

An enthusiastic welcome awaits you at this thriving city by the sea.
