Jurassic Park ATV in Kauai

Have you guys seen the movie "Mike and Dave need Wedding Dates"? ... Ok well, how about I tell you thats the whole reason why we even came to Hawaii in the first place. Sad, but true! Actually not sad, its amazing because we had an awesome time!

So you know the part where the go ATVing in Hawaii where they filmed Jurassic Park? I was watching the movie with my husband and when that scene came on I looked at him and said "OMG! We have to go to Hawaii and ride ATVs where they filmed Jurassic Park!!"

And I wasn't joking! Because a couple weeks after that we were packing our bags and heading to the airport because Norwegian Cruise Line partnered with us to make all my dreams come true (aka go to Hawaii and ride ATVs where they filmed Jurassic Park!!). 

My husband couldn't believe it. One minute we were watching a movie (which by the way I totally recommend because its THAT funny), and then the next minute we were landing in Hawaii catching a taxi to Norwegian Cruise Line dock to hop on and start exploring Hawaii. 

The cruise took us Island hoping to a few different islands and the last one was Kauai, the famous Jurassic Park / Indiana Jones Kauai! So I was on a mission to find that ATV tour and have the time of my life! 

Thanks to the oh so amazing Kipu Ranch Adventures they made it all come true! When we got to Kauai they had a representative waiting for us at the dock with a fancy car and he drove us to the farm where they were patiently waiting for us with a super cool (you guessed it) ATV, and a super cool tour guide!

I love adventure and speed so this was perfect for me. Also, I actually love the movie Jurassic Park so being in the fields and recognizing different parts of the movie where the dinosaurs come running and stampeding was so wonderful!

I loved every minute of it, and so did my husband. It was totally worth it! Oh, and check it out! Thats the swing from Indiana Jones!

The Norwegian Cruise Line is taking me to Hawaii!

Aloha! Today is my first day on the Norwegian Cruise Line, and we are going Island Hoping around Hawaii!

My husband and I are so excited! We have never been to Hawaii before so we cannot wait to see what it has in store for us. We have an amazing balcony stateroom, from which we will be able to view all the breathtaking islands while we cruise.

I hope I can catch a lot of awesome shots and get some great footage for you guys!!

I have never been to Hawaii, and frankly, I never thought I would make it to this wonderful land. It always seemed so far away, and too expensive so this is more of a dream come true for me than most people might realize! When we landed in Hawaii I couldn't believe my eyes. Its true what they say about this state - it's GORGEOUS!

I don't even think Hawaii should be considered a sate, it should honestly just be its own country! Anyone else agree? I didn't feel like I was in the USA at all! The culture, climate, people, food, and nature is completely unique from the rest of the USA. I felt like I was in a different world!

But anyways, so here we are, in Hawaii, and on board the amazing Norwegian Cruise Line. I have cruised with them before a few years back throughout the Caribbean - we went to St. Thomas, St Martin, St Lucia, Barbados and Dominica. This time we're doing one state and cruising around it.

We are boarding in Honolulu and then we begin our trip for the next 7 days to Maui, Kona, Hilo, and Kauai!

Delicious food, check! Best balcony stateroom, check! World class service, check! Fun times, tanning, and vacation mode, check check check! I love everything so far about the Norwegian Cruise Line and its only day 1.. Imagine what days 2-7 will be like!

Our stateroom has a balcony and I totally recommend it. It makes cruising so much more relaxing! When you are in a room with a small window or sometimes with no window at all, it can feel a bit claustrophobic. But with a balcony you can sit back and relax, listen to the waves of the ocean, and drink your coffee in the morning while watching the sunrise. Its amazing and so worth it!

Also, get ready to eat if your thinking of going on a cruise. Thats one of the best parts! Its like you're on an all-inclusive resort, except each day you wake up in a different location! So come and enjoy because it's all you can eat and it's buffet style! lol I'll probably gain a pound a day, but also well worth it!

Alright thats enough from me for now. Keep checking back for more pictures and updates of our time here with the Norwegian Cruise Line in Hawaii!
