The amazing 7-night itineraries stop at five ports on four Hawaiian islands and give guests plenty of opportunities for whale watching, to witness Kilauea Volcano and take in the dramatic views of the Napali Coast. When Norwegian says, “Nobody does Hawai’i like Norwegian,” they’re talking about Pride of America — and it’s not marketing hyperbole.
