If you're dreaming of visiting the Hawaiian Islands — and you love cruising on the open ocean — a sailing that departs Vancouver this fall offers a deal that's hard to beat.
And the ship you'll sail on is nothing to scoff at, either.
Royal Caribbean Cruises will take guests from Vancouver to Honolulu, Hawaii on the awe-inspiring Ovation of the Seas. The statuesque ship offers everything from casual bites to elevated, high-end dining experiences. Guests can also soak in the most breathtaking perspective at sea from the North Star — the highest vantage point on any cruise ship.
The cruise departs Vancouver on Friday (Sept. 30) in the afternoon and then spends the day in Seattle the following day. The ship will spend five days at sea before overnighting in Lahaina, Maui on Friday (Oct. 7).
Passengers will disembark from the cruise on Sunday (Oct. 9).

The cruise line is offering 30 per cent off the total cruise fare per passenger. The total price for two people for an interior stateroom costs $2,654 USD and the total discounts work out to $798 USD.
With all of the taxes and fees, the cruise works out to $2,203.26 USD, which works out to $2,852.77 CAD.
Not only does that cost include your transportation on a beautiful five-star vessel, but it also includes meals, entertainment, snacks, and lodging. The only thing it doesn’t factor in is alcohol, but you may opt to purchase a drink package that can reduce the cost of your spending.
