(TRAVPR.COM) CALIFORNIA - April 15th, 2014 - EL SEGUNDO, CA –YMT Vacations, the leading provider of affordable group travel packages to older Americans, has just released its 2014-2015 Hawaii brochure that features the first announcement of 2015 prices for its popular Hawaii land and cruise itineraries, including an agricultural tour that highlights farming practices across the islands with departures in January.

“2014 has been a banner year for Hawaii as bookings are up over 30% from the prior year with the largest gains for our popular Four-Island itinerary and the unique winter Agricultural tour,” stated YMT President Jerre Fuqua. “Our guests responded extremely well to both land tours in 2014 and we are pleased to announce our 2015 prices that include very modest increases on these weekly departures. Hawaii is a very popular worldwide destination, particularly with Asian countries and as a result there is upward pressure on prices across the islands. YMT is fortunate because of our long-standing relationships with key suppliers to be able to mitigate price increases. In fact, we still believe that we offer the best value to Hawaii, whether by land or sea and that 2015 will be an even bigger year for travel to Hawaii!”

In addition to its highly successful land tours, YMT also offers a popular Hawaiian Islands Cruise & Tour aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America, which recently underwent a $30 million upgrade. In addition to a 7-night cruise of the four major islands this itinerary includes 4 nights hotel accommodations in Waikiki, a knowledgeable tour driver-guide, Polynesian Tour Director in Oahu, baggage handling at both hotels and on ship and special events and sightseeing. Prices for this 12-day cruise and tour start from just $1599 plus tax, with limited-time savings of up to $400 per couple available for select summer dates.
