Honolulu
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We had a grand time in Honolulu. Our hotel was in Waikiki which is very central for the activities we enjoy. That is, the markets and beach.

We did the Atlantis Submarine Tour in Maui. Book it through the cruise ship as their price is as good value as anywhere else and it's very convenient.

Don't be taken in by vendors at the wharf advertising the same cruise is less than $50. It is only that price if you go to a Timeshare' presentation.

We have been to 7 Polynesian Islands and if you're into water sports and activities they are fantastic. If like us though, you want to take souvenirs home, forget it. They are very, very expensive. For instance I found some very nice dinner place mats in one store. They showed the local fruits and flowers. At US$28 each, it would have cost US168 for a 6 person setting. Oh, and did I mention, they were PLASTIC.

The people are lovely, warm people though and very willing to share their stories of local life.

I've given this Island and extra point rating as it is cleaner, nicer and the people are more energetic than the other Polynesian islands.

We joined a maxi taxi tour on the wharf and our driver/guide was a lovely lady who had established a couple of businesses for herself. She was a fantastic guide. Her name is Tiare (the same as the local flower) and the tour she provided was worth every cent.

As your cruise ship approaches the islands you will see all the hotel accommodation that are built on stilts over the water. It looks like a tropical paradise and is exactly as all the advertising brochures show it to be. Very romantic and idyllic.

We arrived on a very hot and rainy day. Take an umbrella for heavy downpours but don't worry if you get slightly wet. You will dry out very quickly and will be cool too.
