Vancouverites looking for a scenic tour through the Hawaiian Islands on a luxury vessel have an inexpensive option in the new year.
Royal Caribbean Cruises will take guests to Vancouver from Honolulu, Hawaii on the awe-inspiring Quantum of the Seas — one of its massive mega-ships that holds just shy of 5,000 passengers. 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.
Adrenaline junkies can try out the first skydiving simulator at sea or the FlowRider — a 40-foot-long surf simulator.
The cruise departs from Honolulu, Oahu on April 28, 2023, in the evening and then sails to Lahaina, Maui the following day. The ship overnights in Maui on April 28 and heads to Kona on the big island on May 1.
Following the Hawaiian tour, guests have six days at sea to explore the massive mega-ship and all of its amenities. The cruise disembarks at Vancouver's Canada Place Terminal on May 8.

Vancouver cruise to Hawaii with Royal Caribbean
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 US$1,577.76 and the total discounts work out to US$574. This total works out to approximately C$2,104.24 for the stateroom, which breaks down to a per-person total of C$1,052.12 and a per diem cost of C$105.21 for the 10-day sailing.
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.
While some towering behemoths have cruised into Vancouver, some ships simply can't fit under the Lions Gate Bridge during regular or high tide, such as Royal Caribbean International's (RCI) newly announced Icon of the Seas, which is now the largest ship at sea.
