Open Tournament Schedule
May 28: Embark San Francisco.
May 29 - June 1: Cruising the South Pacific.
June 2 and 3: Oahu/Honolulu. Honolulu and Oahu are the center of island life and boast sandy beaches, endearing smiles and exotic tropical flowers. Nearby, elegant resorts and towering high-rises line the gentle curve of Waikiki Beach. In the distance,
majestic Diamond Head Crater lies on the horizon beyond your Crystal ship. The choices are many. Relive the historic events of Pearl Harbor, explore tropical rainforests or witness the creation of island culinary magic.
June 4: Maui/Lahaina. In addition to possessing marvelous beaches, this second-largest island of the Hawaiian archipelago boasts one of the great natural wonders of the world - Haleakala, the largest dormant volcano on the planet. Lahaina, a designated national historic landmark, was one of the principal whaling centers of the Pacific. Now it brims with reminders of its legendary seafaring past.
June 5: Hawaii/Kailua-Kona.The legendary Kona Coast is famous for its fine weather and inviting beaches and coffee. Kona encompasses the western coast and lies at the foot of towering Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Here one finds bright, clear days and magnificent sunsets. While the island’s raw volcanic landscape can hardly be described as “pretty,” you won't want to miss the eerie Volcanoes National Park.
June 6: Hawaii/Hilo. Big Island is the youngest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands and Hilo is its largest city. Commanding Hawaii’s wet eastern Hamakua Coast, Hilo is surrounded by lush forest resplendently draped in flowers and greenery all year. Its lush eastern rainforests contrast sharply with the lunar-like landscape of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a must-see for first time visitors.
June 7-10: Cruising the South Pacific.
June 11: Ensenada. The third-largest city in the state of Baja is famed for many things. One is the sunny and mild weather, which helps yield fine wines considered to be the best in Mexico. Another is the surf. Ensenada boasts several celebrated surfing spots. A third lure is off-road racing, with the Baja 1000 being held every year in November and the Baja 500 taking place in June.
June 12: Cruising the California coast.
June 13: Disembark San Francisco.
Note: Itineraries are subject to change without notice.
