What You Can Expect

Best Oahu Shore Excursion: Pearl Harbor and Honolulu City Tour

Punchbowl National Cemetary

After being picked up from your cruise ship pier, your Oahu shore excursion will start in downtown Honolulu, where you'll visit Iolani Palace, the official residence of Hawaii's monarchy. Learn about the life of King Kalakaua, the first monarch to circumnavigate the globe. Marvel at the opulence of the only palace in the United States, and uncover the secrets of the royal kingdom before its downfall.

Next, you'll learn about King Kamehameha, the great leader who conquered the Hawaiian Islands and formally established the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1810. Without King Kamehameha's unification of the islands, Hawaii may have been conquered by competing western interests. King Kamehameha's statute celebrates Hawaii's greatest king.

The Punchbowl National Cemetery sits high on a wall on Puowaina Crater overlooking the graves of the cemetery. Get amazing views of Waikiki and Diamond Head, while commemorating the veterans who served in World War I, World War II, the Korean War - and the Vietnam War.

The USS Arizona Memorial is the final resting place of the 1,177 crew members who lost their lives on December 7, 1941, during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The national memorial commemorating the attack that thrust the United States into World War II spans the mid-portion of the sunken battleship.

When your tour is over, you’ll be dropped off at Waikiki or the airport. This post-cruise shore excursion is available for Norwegian Cruise Line passengers on debarkation day and for passengers with flight times after 5:30pm.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to Waikiki or the airport. If your ship is delayed and you are unable attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

The Roberts of Hawaii representative was waiting for us as we left the dock area. The van was perfect - small group. The driver gave us a little commentary about Pearl Harbor as we drove there. After Pearl we took a drive in Honolulu. We saw the govt. buildings and we stopped to take photos. We asked to be let off in Waikkii. It was an easy way back to the ship.

Tour guide very knowledgeable and strived to make every minute count on our tour. No one should visit Honolulu and not see Pearl Harbor.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

Pearl Harbor tour was great but at port was very disorganized and took time away from tour. Tour was supposed to be at 9:00 and we did not get picked up until 9:30. Driver was not that familiar with Honolulu.

As a WW II baby, this was very touching and sentimental. Loved it.

The City tour was much too short and non descriptive. We could have spent less time at Pearl Harbor

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2011

Pearl Harbor was such an honor to go see, however due to APEC, our trip was cut short due to traffic jams, and road blocks.
