Best Maui Cruise Excursions For Pride Of America Cruise Passengers

Cruise excursions are incredibly fun, but booking them through the cruise line can be quite expensive—and planning them on your own can leave you pulling your hair out in frustration. Never fear—if you’re traveling on the 7-Day Hawaii Cruise with the Norwegian Cruise Line, all these activities will fit into your itinerary.

Of course, what trip to Maui is complete without visiting Lahaina or checking out the beautiful Ka’anapali Beach? These spots are great for hanging out, getting in some shopping, and having some laughs, but if you’re looking to actually do something on Maui, this list is for you. Depending on what you’re looking to get out of your trip, check out the Must-Do Maui Tours or explore ways to get out on the water.
