Now couples can get married and have Independence, too

HONOLULU -- American Hawaii Cruises created Sea and Shore Honeymoons, a seven-night cruise package designed for those getting married on the mainland on a Saturday.

The SS Independence sails from Honolulu on Saturday nights for its seven-night weekly interisland cruises. Honeymooners join the ship at Nawiliwili, Kauai, on Sunday, giving them ample time to get to the islands. The vacation features six nights aboard ship and a one-night post-cruise hotel stay.

Couples who purchase their air fare through American Hawaii fly to Honolulu on Sunday and get free interisland air to Lihue, Kauai. Also included are transfers to the ship, and in Honolulu between the ship, hotel and airport.

Prices start at $1,230 per person, double, the same starting price as the company's seven-night, cruise-only vacations.

The cruise line also offers wedding packages and optional romance add-ons such as photography and massages.
