A Taste of O’ahu and Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, on a Disney Cruise

I hope you’ve been enjoying my suggestions for excursions to take during your Disney cruise in Hawaii. Last but not least, let’s check out what you can experience on the lush island of O’ahu. Not only is O’ahu abounding in natural beauty like the rest of the Hawaiian islands, it is steeped in rich history and home to Honolulu’s thriving modern metropolis, providing Port Adventure options for every interest.

Honolulu is also your gateway to the world’s newest Disney resort and spa, Aulani, in nearby Ko Olina. I highly recommend booking a stay here before or after your cruise, depending on which of our two Hawaiian voyages you join. What’s more, you can reserve a room just for your Honolulu port day with the Be Our Guest at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina Port Adventure. It’s the perfect opportunity to experience the magic and amenities of this first-class resort!

Those who want to venture a little farther out will love our Explore And Taste Oahus North Shore Honolulu Port Adventure. We take you on a tour of the coast to see famous places, including the Dole Pineapple Plantation and the picturesque Byodo-In Temple located at the base of 2,000-foot cliffs. You’ll also travel to the surfing mecca of the world, visiting the North Shore’s Sunset Beach and Waimea Valley, before stopping at Haleiwa Beach Park where Green Sea Turtles occasionally rest on the golden sand or swim in the aquamarine water close to shore.

If you want to see iconic sights, excursions like our Waikiki Beach Break and Diamond Head Crater Summit Adventure take you to the area’s popular spots to enjoy nature. Other options, including the Arizona Memorial & City Tour and the Pearl Harbor VIP Military Base Tour take you back in history and give you the chance to pay your respects at important landmarks.

That concludes my series on Port Adventures in Hawaii. Fantastic options, don’t you agree? If you missed my other posts, take a look back so you can start planning your trip of a lifetime. Aloha!

  • Hello-
    I am a travel agent and I agree this is the ultimate vacation. I have a client looking to book a Hawaii cruise for 2016 along with visiting Aulani however there is no cruise itinerary offered in 2016 for Hawaii. Any chance they will be adding it anytime soon?

    Thanks-
    Kelly

  • Hello Arnaldo!

    We are avid Disney Cruise Line Castaway Club members and have enjoyed a vacation to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa. The pairing of a Disney Cruise on the Disney Wonder followed by a stay at Aulani is the ultimate vacation!

    I hope this itinerary returns in the following years as we will be sure to participate! It was also a great honour and pleasure to finally meet you last summer whilst sailing the Mediterranean on the Disney Magic.

    Best regards,
    Jackie
