 Premium All Inclusive includes drinks,

hassle-free holiday

To truly experience the Aloha-spirit of Hawaii, we recommend Norwegian Cruise Line
and their U.S.-flagged ship, Pride of America. Why? Because they’re the only cruise
line to sail to all four main Hawaiian Islands in just one week, giving you more time
to explore the spectacular scenery, active volcanoes and beautiful beaches. In fact,
you’ll have two overnight stops on your cruise around the island group and over
80 hours of shore time - the only cruise to give you so much time ashore to explore
and discover this corner of paradise. What’s more, your cruise will be as relaxing and
indulgent as the paradise islands themselves, thanks to Norwegian’s Premium All
Inclusive with so much now included in your cruise fare.

Combined with your all inclusive Hawaiian cruise will be a stay on the world- Cruise itinerary:

PINK SANDS Jason says:
& CRYSTAL SEAS  Ultra all-inclusive experience representing outstanding value
 Small-ship cruising with relaxed onboard atmosphere
 Utmost attention to detail with the finest cuisine, service and

amenities throughout

This stunning itinerary onboard Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Navigator combines the best of three regions. Start your
journey from central Manhattan and glide down the Hudson
past the city that never sleeps. Immerse yourself in the laid-
back Bermuda atmosphere in St. George, the second oldest
English town in the New World. Beyond the pink sand, you will
be charmed by the island’s British heritage, from iconic red
phone booths to bobby-hatted policemen.
Visit the ‘big hitters’ of the Caribbean including Antigua &
St. Lucia, but you’ll also discover lesser-visited gems such
as St. Barts where Riviera chic meets Caribbean cool.
Day-trippers come from nearby islands for the duty-free
shopping, excellent dining and to lounge on the soft,
white sands in a secluded palm-fringed cove.
