Say aloha to Hawaii with our pick of sunshine island cruises

If you've already decided you want to head for the sun this winter, you might be thinking about Hawaiian Island cruises.

Princess Cruises runs a fantastic 14-day round trip to Hawaii on board the Sapphire Princess, embarking at Los Angeles on November 26, 2011 and calling at Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.

Four relaxing days at sea on your island cruise following the departure from LA, before arriving at Hilo, complete with stunning waterfalls and lush rainforests. Then it's on to Honolulu, the state capital, with its lively arts scene, lots of shopping opportunities and myriad iconic landmarks.

Beautiful Nawiliwili harbour is the next port of call, with windsurfing, fishing, hiking and scuba diving all on hand nearby. Meanwhile, Lahaina's plush restaurants are the perfect destination for gourmet dining.

During the time spent at sea, there's plenty to do on this sparkling ship. She has 740 balcony staterooms providing fantastic views and a whole host of restaurants offering everything from fine dining and traditional afternoon tea to burgers, pizza and ice cream sundaes.

On board entertainment includes a theatre, casino, nightclubs, four swimming pools, library, art gallery and duty free shops. There's even a wedding chapel for those who want to take the plunge - not of the scuba diving variety!

Prices start at £1,701 per person, based on twin occupancy of an inside cabin. If you really want to splurge, a mini-suite costs around £2,461. These rates have been calculated with a five per cent discount for booking online. Take an island cruise today!
