Voice of Travelers to American Samoa

Vacation trip to American Samoa

I am Wayne from Missouri. Last month, my girlfriend and I spent our vacation in American Samoa. We traveled to Hawaii by air and boarded Oceania Cruise to American Samoa. We searched online for the cheapest ticket weeks prior our departure to American Samoa and the cheapest air ticket to Hawaii was via Hawaii Airlines. One of the travel agents had advised us that the cheapest tickets can be found six weeks before your desired departure. As a couple traveling to American Samoa via Hawaii, the airline offered us a 6% discount on the ticket we bought. The travel experience to American Samoa via Hawaii was overall brilliant; the attendants were friendly and ready to help and great food and drinks were served. We are planning to spend our next vacation this year in American Samoa.

Great experience

I am Martinez from Peru. I am a lone traveler who enjoys visiting different parts of the world. Last month I made a pilgrimage to Ta'u Island in American Samoa. Being limited by capital, I searched online for the cheapest ticket eight weeks prior to my departure to American Samoa. Upon comparison, the cheapest ticket to American Samoa was via Samoa Air who offered a 5% discount on any ticket bought to attend the pilgrimage. Samoan flight attendants were friendly and offered a great travel experience.
