  11. Hi ChuckD, Thanks for your interest in the Hawaii Cruise HOP. The ship has not listed the excursions that will be available yet, but will 6 months prior to sailing. I can tell you the excursions that my husband and I have taken in the past. At Hilo, we visited the Volcano, in Honolulu we visited the AZ Memorial and other WWII sites. We also visited a working pineapple farm and ate fresh pineapples right on the fields. We visited a working chocolate factory and a coffee plantation. The samples were awesome! There are many other excursions the ship offers depending upon what you enjoy doing. This would be from scuba diving to laying on the beach, to other site seeing tours. During the at-sea days, the Escapees HOP will also have socials. My husband and I enjoyed the past Escapees Hawaii Cruise HOP so much that we have chosen to go on another one and attend excursions that we have not been on. We really enjoy traveling with fellow SKPs. We have met people on cruise HOPs that we have become friends with and have stayed in close contact with them. It’s so much fun. Hope you and your wife will join us for this Hawaii Cruise HOP. We’d love to have you. Have a good day.
