Carnival Journeys: Transpacific Cruise to Hawaii and the Far East
Take advantage of Carnival Cruise Lines’ new longer length sailings to experience the fun of life afloat. On this longer Carnival Journey cruise you will also have the chance to sample local cuisine from the various ports visited and enjoy cultural events.
This 24-day voyage is the longest single departure in Carnival Cruise Line’s history and marks the first time that the line will visit Guam, Vietnam and Malaysia on a North American departure.
The cruise features extended port calls at Maui and Honolulu, Hawaii, before crossing the International Date Line, to visit Guam, and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam – the first time the line has visited these destinations on a ship departing from North America.
On this fantastic seagoing adventure you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the fun activities on board Carnival Splendor and the wide choice of dining. You’ll visit ancient temples and other centuries-old landmarks and attractions and immerse yourself in Far East culture.
The 24-day voyage will also offer a traditional ceremony held when mariners cross the International Date Line which essentially adds an extra day to the cruise.
Although the cruise ends in Singapore, why not extend your holiday with a couple of nights in this bustling city?
The second largest Hawaiian island, Maui is mostly made up of the Haleakala volcano. This 10,000-foot dormant volcano offers spectacular sunrises and glimpses of local endangered birds. Maui is also renowned for its magnificent beaches – Kaanapali Beach is one of the most famous and is home to various restaurants and shops.
This boisterous Polynesian capital offers a range of experiences - savour the pan-Asian dishes of Chinatown, browse in the world’s largest open-air shopping centre in Ala Moana or enjoy 360-degree seaviews from the observation deck of the Aloha Tower. No visit to this island would be complete without a trip to nearby Pearl Harbour and the poignant Arizona Monument.
Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
KK is known for its bustling markets, beaches, fiery sunsets and the waterfront Kota Kinabalu City Mosque. It is also a gateway to Kinabalu National Park, the home of 4,095m-high Mount Kinabalu. For stunning views of Mount Kinabalu and the sunset head to Kokol Hill. The long winding road there offers panoramic views of the city and the islands beyond.
Ho Chi Minh (Phu My), Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh is a city of energy and discovery. Wander through its timeless alleys to discover incense-infused temples alongside skyscrapers and chic designer malls. The city is also known for its French colonial landmarks, including Notre-Dame Cathedral and its food stalls around bustling B?n Thành Market.
