Holland America needs to provide a service to guests wanting to do their own activity planning and organising.
The entertainment was as usual excellent.
Service in all areas was excellent except for the comment above about the number of staff per guest.

HonoluluWe rented a car but had to go to the airport to pick it up. If the Ship's company could organise with rental companies to pick up and drop off at the ship for the time we were in port would have made this a much better experience.View All 673 Honolulu Cruise Port Reviews
We went to Bishop Museum - well worth it. Also swam at Waikiki beach - fabulous and explored Diamond Head. Shopped at Alamoama which was very interesting as far as shopping centre's go.

KauaiWe rented a car and drove to the canyon and beyond which was extremely pleasant. We then drove to the blowhole and a beach for a swim then onto the waterfall. In all a great day.View All 537 Kauai Cruise Port Reviews

Pago PagoWe snorkelled at a lovely beach although there was a lot of coral. We took the local bus the full route. WiFi is available at the local library about a 10 minute walk from the ship but it does cost but much cheaper than the WiFi provided portside.View All 57 Pago Pago Cruise Port Reviews

Port VilaUnfortunately Port Villa had a cyclone a couple of months prior to our arrival but the locals were still very welcoming and the devastation incurred very obvious.View All 168 Port Vila Cruise Port Reviews
The boat taxi from the ship to the main area was fabulous and a great way to get into and out of town when not taking a ship's tour. The operator takes $AUS or $US but much cheaper if you use $AUS.

SuvaWe once again rented a car and drove part of the island visiting most of the sites covered by the ship's tours including the waterfall, the seaside villages.View All 114 Suva Cruise Port Reviews
This time the rental company was much closer to the shipping terminal but we caught a taxi to the rental company and they drove us back to the ship after our day's rental.
