Explore one of the most-popular US cities, San Francisco, before heading for a cruise round the Aloha State for £1999 per person with this 11-night deal from Major Cruise. We found the same cruise for up to £2320 per person elsewhere, without the San Francisco stay.
Here's what's included:
Travel on 21 or 28 August. The price is based on cruising in an Interior Stateroom. Upgrade to an Oceanview Stateroom for £100 more per person or to a Balcony Stateroom for £300 more. Click here for more information.
The Rough Guide calls San Francisco "arguably the most beautiful, and likely the most liberal major city in the US". The Best Western The Hotel California is near Union Square and Nob Hill.
Pride of America sets sail from Honolulu on a 7-night voyage that takes in Kahului (Maui), Hilo, Kona and Kauai, before heading back to Honolulu. Hilo and Kona are both on the Big Island of Hawaii. Hilo sports waterfalls and lush rainforest while Kona, on the Kailua coast, is popular with snorkellers and divers.
Pride of America has several public rooms and lounges and a large 8-deck atrium at its centre. The ship has two main dining rooms as well as The Lone Star Steak House and Little Italy restaurants. There is also a large casino, the Santa Fe Spa and Fitness Center and the Hollywood Theatre, which mounts large American productions and smaller Hawaiian shows.
Transfers are not included. For best value, we recommend booking everything locally. Gratuities are payable on board at US$12 per person, per day.
Manchester flights are from £100 more per person. Other travel dates are available from May-October for a supplement. Call Major Cruise for details
