Kahului Maui Cruise
Welcome to paradise
Aloha! You have arrived in Hawaii. Your MSC Cruise will take you to Maui, the second largest island in the Hawaiian archipelago. Turquoise sea, soft golden, yellow and black beaches, and lush greenery welcome you to this garden of Eden, home to two large and powerful volcanoes.
An excursion will take you to see one of the volcanoes, Haleakala, which is in the Haleakala National Park: an area of 51 square miles, with lush and colourful vegetation, rivers and streams. The volcano, now dormant, has the largest crater in the world, with a circumference of 20 miles and a depth of about 2,600 ft. If you want to fully enjoy the beauty and holiness of this place, go at dawn when the sun looks as if it rising directly out of the caldera.
There is also an excursion to the island of Molokini, a partially submerged crescent-shaped crater off the coast of Maui. Regarded as one of the ten most spectacular places in the world for diving, Molokini has breath-taking scenery, with an intact coral reef and many varieties of tropical fish. The island is also a sanctuary for marine birds such as Bulwer's petrels and wedge-tailed shearwaters.
Don’t miss out on the excursion that takes you on the road to Hana. The road starts south of Kahului and runs along the southeast coast of the island, for just under 65 miles. It is considered one of the most beautiful roads in the world, with waterfalls, lush plants and flowers, beautiful cliffs, small bridges, hundreds of curves and a bamboo forest. The main attractions are the Keanae peninsula, a patch of green with panoramic views, the Keanae Arboretum, the Kahanu tropical botanical gardens and the fascinating town of Hana.
