Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Tendering was a negative, but once you got off the ship, landing in Lahaina was great. Lots to see within walking distance and much more interesting than Kahului.

Hilo is a decent port with fairly easy access to the rental car booths at the airport. You can't really walk anywhere so you either take an excursion or get on a rental car shuttle. Proximity to Volcanoes National Park makes this a favorite stop.

Like Lahaina, you tender to this port. Renting a car can be expensive if you reserve one at the King Kamehameha hotel, or time consuming if you take a shuttle to the airport because it is seven miles away.

Kona is a nice town to walk through and has some unique shops and restaurants.

Can't really say much since we just got on a bus to San Diego. Didn't seem like there was much of interest by the port.
