Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary

Cruise Like A VIP is honored to present the Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary visit to Hawaii.
One of the most humbling places you will ever visit is the USS Arizona memorial. The memorial marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and marines killed on the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by Japanese imperial forces and commemorates the events of that day.  The attack on Pearl Harbor and the island of Oahu was the action that led to the United States direct involvement in World War II.  Join our fellow Americans on a visit December 4-11, 2016 to participate in the celebrations commemorating one of the most important events in US and World history.  While on Oahu, your 7 day visit gives you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the island and visit many of the other attractions.

I have included a VIP Pearl Harbor Tour for the December 7 celebration along with a Polynesian Culture Center visit with Luau and Hawaiian show with your package.  This 75th anniversary visit to Pearl Harbor will be a touching remembrance to you and a history lesson for youths who only read about Pearl Harbor in the history books at school.

Dates and prices:
December 4-11, 2016

RDU departures:  $2632.10 per person
Other departures available upon request
Deposit:  $250.00 per person due at booking

Price includes:  Round trip airfare RDU/HNL, round trip transfers, 7 nights Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort Rainbow Tower Oceanfront room, trip insurance, VIP Pearl Harbor tour including tickets to USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine and Museum tour, Road to War Museum, Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, Film footage of actual attack on Pearl Harbor and Boat Launch to Memorial.  Also a Honolulu city tour is included. Polynesian Cultural Center visit with Luau, show and transfers.

Pearl Harbor averages 4,700 people per day.  With the 75th anniversary celebration that number is expected to at least triple.  If interested, please give me a call as soon as possible to be able to see Pearl Harbor on the 7th with the rest of us.  Call  Malynda at 919.708.8217.
