Hawaiian Cruise vs All-Inclusive Hawaii Vacation: Which is Superior?
Hawaii is one of the world’s premier destinations, and it’s no surprise why. Stunning natural beauty combined with Hawaii’s legendary aloha spirit is a recipe for success. Many people wonder if they should choose a Hawaiian cruise or an all-inclusive Hawaii vacation. Stick around as we explore why we feel an All-Inclusive Hawaii Vacation is far superior to a Hawaiian cruise.
Why is an All-Inclusive Hawaii Vacation a Better Choice than a Hawaiian Cruise?
Let’s not try to pretend that budget isn’t one of the main factors when planning a Hawaii vacation. Usually, it’s the deciding factor! Hawaii is an investment vacation, but with a little planning there’s a Hawaii vacation for almost every budget.
Although there are Hawaiian cruises at varying price points, many people are surprised to find they can have an all-inclusive Hawaii vacation, and actually be in Hawaii the entire time, still staying within their budget. Our all-inclusive Hawaii vacations run the gamut from affordable Saver Packages to Premier Packages. Additionally, many of the Premier Packages offer several hotels, allowing you to find one that works within your budget.
More Island Time
This is a big one! We believe that the best way to experience Hawaii is to actually be in Hawaii. Not spending your precious vacation time on a ship looking out towards the Hawaiian Islands. Yes, you can book shore excursions on a Hawaiian cruise, but wouldn’t you rather still have your feet on the ground in Hawaii after they’re over? Our all-inclusive Hawaii vacations allow you to do just that. Most days already have excursions and meals pre-planned, and you have the added bonus of spending all the time in between doing whatever you want…in Hawaii. On a cruise, you return to the ship after most excursions, so the bulk of your trip is potentially spent on a big boat, not in Hawaii.
Lots of Open Time
Expanding on the above, our all-inclusive Hawaii vacations really do afford you lots of open time to do what you want. For example, with our All-Inclusive Waikiki Beach Vacation, an average day may include breakfast, a catamaran sail and a luau. All the time in between is yours to relax on the beach, shop, explore, add more activities… Of course you’ll also have free time on a Hawaiian cruise, but the free time will be on the ship, not in Hawaii.
Inter-Island Travel is Faster and Easier with an All-Inclusive Hawaii Vacation than with a Hawaiian Cruise.
Traveling between the islands is a short flight, usually no more than 30 minutes. We get you where you’re going with as little fuss as possible.
Pre-Planned and So Easy
When you book an all-inclusive Hawaii vacation with us, we take all the guess-work out of the planning! Let us hand-craft your Hawaiian adventure, based on your preferences. For instance, let’s look at the Hawaii Island-Hopper Vacation Package. You get to spend 11 days on Oahu, at your choice of Waikiki hotel. You have three pre-arranged island hops. One to Maui, one to Kauai and one to the Big Island of Hawaii. We coordinate transportation to the airports, the flights and the rental cars. All you do is show up! Additionally, you get all the meals and excursions included in the All-Inclusive Waikiki Beach Vacation! How easy is that?
To sum it up, in our opinion and 40+ years of experience, an all-inclusive Hawaii vacation is definitely superior to a Hawaiian cruise. Reach out to us to start planning your next Hawaii adventure, or take our quiz to find out “What Kind of Hawaii Are You?“.
