Not only will you be able to indulge in breathtaking views of the sunset while sailing on the high seas, but you'll have an opportunity to experience the local culture once your Princess Cruise is docked at one of the many ports around the islands.

If you want a taste of the local cuisine, the Aloha Spirit Program has you covered as well. Some Hawaiian-inspired dishes you may be able to try while on board include the grilled Ono steak with lime butter, grilled tiger shrimp kebabs, mango lime relish, seared yellowfin tuna on cucumber-fennel slaw and Kalua duck with plum wine sauce.
