#FriendsTravel Ultimate Hawaii with Cunard’s Queen Victoria – All Shore Excursions Included JESS Kalinowsky JESS@FriendsTravel.com

Filed under: Cunard's Queen Victoria to Hawaii — urbanvacations @ 8:15 pm

Hawaii in the Grand Manner by Ocean Liner with Cunard’s Queen Victoria
Two Departures Only – 16 Days from $3,495 per person
Starting December 20, 2011 (Christmas & New Years)
& February 13, 2012

Until a few decades ago, one of the world’s great travel experiences
was the voyage by luxury liner to Hawaii from California,
with the thrill of sailing past Diamond Head, a magical journey enjoyed by
millions until 1979. With relaxing days at sea, the historic Royal
Hawaiian Hotel and elegant travel not hampered by cramped airline seating
and ‘red-eye’ schedules, Hawaii by great ocean liner from California was
a memorable way to arrive in the Islands. It will be again, since we have
constructed two special holidays that offer the best of the Islands, all with
the sublime treat of unpacking once.
The new Cunard liner ‘Queen Victoria’, heir to a proud tradition
established by the original Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth and later by
the Queen Elizabeth 2, sailing right from Los Angeles is our civilized
conveyance to the Islands. We begin with free or low-cost train travel to
Los Angeles from any US point along with a luxury hotel stay to avoid any
concern about tight same-day connections. Aboard Queen Victoria,
we enjoy the classic ocean liner crossing to Hawaii and once there,
explore this lovely state in great comfort, without having to hop on
and off inter-island flights, change hotels every few days or deal with any
of the hassle of connections. Instead you will see Hawaii as it should be
seen, by sea, visiting Hilo, Maui, Kauai and Honolulu, all in one
leisurely voyage. Nicer still, we have included shore excursions in every
port as well as a special luncheon at the storied Royal Hawaiian Hotel, an
elegant and nostalgic coda evoking the great days of luxury liners to Honolulu.
Best of all, despite Hawaii’s great beauty, guests enjoy another ‘island’
on this holiday, the superb Queen Victoria with her lavish public rooms
including the grand two-deck high Queen’s Room, complete with
chandeliers, for traditional Afternoon Tea daily and big band music every
evening. There is also a two-story library, the swank Royal Court
Theatre, the Golden Lion Pub, a complete spa/health centre and more
amenities including acres of open deck space, than most small cities. In an
age of countless characterless jumbo cruise ships, there are only three great
‘Queen’ liners and we invite you to join us.

Don’t miss these rare West Coast Departures!
Hawaii in the Grand Manner by Ocean Liner with Cunard’s Queen Victoria
Two Departures Only – 16 Days from $3,495 per person
Starting December 20, 2011 (Christmas & New Years)
& February 13, 2012

We have added in an amenity that every experienced cruise traveler will
immediately appreciate. A comprehensive shore excursion is included in
each port of call, carefully chosen and presented with our compliments.
Rather than the usual dreary tour with little sightseeing and lots of
shopping, we have included such treats as a visit to stunning Waimea
Canyon, the fabled ‘Grand Canyon of Hawaii’ during our port call in
Kauai and during our stay in Honolulu, to Pearl Harbor including the
U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. The quality of these excursions is typified by
the fact that one of the many treats is our lunch at the legendary Royal
Hawaiian Hotel, a nostalgic and elegant interlude.

Complimentary Shore Excursions

Complimentary round-trip travel from any California point
to & from Los Angeles. For guests living in the rest of the
country, we have low round-trip train fares ranging between
$99-$299pp. For those with less time, we offer low air addon
fares that are as little at $399 round-trip from over 200
gateway cities.

Overnight luxury hotel stay in Los Angeles the evening
before sailing, avoiding any concern over tight same-day
connections, with welcome reception, a civilized beginning
to your holiday.

Transfer to ship on sailing day with special bon voyage
luncheon aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach before
boarding the Queen Victoria ten minutes away, a nice
pairing of the oldest Cunard liner afloat and the newest.
14-night round-trip voyage to Hawaii aboard Queen
Victoria with visits to Hilo, Honolulu, Kauai and Maui.
Naturally, all meals & entertainment aboard Queen Victoria
are included.

Complimentary shore excursions in every port of call, a
great value and money-saving bonus.
Special luncheon at the fabled Royal Hawaiian Hotel during
our port call in Honolulu.
Fully hosted from start to finish by professional tour
manager with special events and parties onboard.
Welcome aboard bottle of French Champagne in your
stateroom on sailing day.

Day Date Port Arrive Depart
Guests arrive by train or air today and check into the historic Biltmore
Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles for an overnight hotel stay.
We depart the hotel at midday for a special pre-sailing
luncheon aboard the original RMS Queen Mary in Long Beach
Today we have included a visit to Volcanoes National Park,
4300 feet above sea level to view the Kilauea Volcano before
traveling alongside the 11-mile long Crater Rim! Later tonight,
we sail past Kilauea with its lava flows pouring into the sea.
This morning we visit Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial
before driving into Waikiki for a special luncheon at the fabled
Royal Hawaiian Hotel, the grande dame of Hawaiian resorts
A visit to stunning Waimea Canyon, possibly the most lovely
sight in all of the islands, is featured today. Bring your camera!
Our first stop today is at the Maui Plantation where an
excellent tram ride tell us all about the agricultural history
followed by a visit to the scenic Iao Valley and Needle. Later
today, there is time to enjoy this historic whaling town.
Guests may extend their stay in California if they wish.
