What You Can Expect

Oahu Shore Excursion: Pearl Harbor and Honolulu City Tour

Punchbowl National Cemetary

After pickup from your port, your local guide will begin your tour through Honolulu’s vibrant downtown, where you’ll hear about the first monarch to circle the world, King Kalakaua. Admire the grounds of the Iolani Palace, the only royal residence in the country. Your guide will pass on the secrets of the royal rulers prior to their demise.

Next, you’ll head over to the statue of King Kamehameha, an important figure in Hawaiian history best known for unifying the islands in 1810. After, you’ll visit the Punchbowl National Cemetery, honoring all those who served in the Armed Forces. The cemetery sits high on Puowaina Crater, overlooking Diamond Head and Waikiki.

Your last stop will take you to the site of Pearl Harbor, where you’ll cruise on a navy launch over to the USS Arizona Memorial. Sitting atop the sunken battleship, this national memorial commemorates the sailors and marines whose lives were taken during the attack that launched the U.S.’s entry into World War II.

Your tour will conclude with drop-off back at your Waikiki pier or the airport. This post-cruise shore excursion is available for Norwegian Cruise Line passengers on debarkation day and for those with flight times after 5:30pm.

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.

Picked up by Roberts at the cruise terminal after disembarking from the Pride Of America. Driver was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Pearl Harbour was emotional and very appropriate. All the films, displays and literature explained the story behind the USS Arizona and that fateful day. After Pearl Harbour I felt the tour went a bit long could have been shortened by about half an hour. It was good to be dropped off at our resort and all our luggage and items on the bus were safe while we were at Pearl Harbour
