Our walk in the cloud forest was interesting. The guide pointed out much of the plants that were native and those that were imported to Hawaii. Our stop at a coffee plantation was good.

Kona is a tender port where guests are dropped off at a pier at the start of Alii drive. There are many shops and restaurants within easy walking distance and a small white sandy beach next to the pier.

We had a great time at Kona. Snorkelling was the highlight of the day and the city had many interesting and historial sites to see.

We didn't see much of the area since we could not rent a car this port. We walked to Kona Brewing- we enjoyed the tour, food and the few shops near pier.

Port was good but their is no pier so we had to be tendered ashore using the ships lifeboats. The ship was not prepared and/or trained for this.

Kona was the only harbor on our itinerary that actually had a pretty place for use to come ashore. It was a very picturesque place. However, it was very, very crowded! It turns out that we were there 3 days before the Ironman triathlon and all of the athletes were there. You could tell at a glance who were the tourists from the ship and who were the athletes! :o Read Less

This is a "tender" port so only 1 of our party went ashore to do a submarine ride. He loved it! Booked direct, not through the ship.

On all our cruises we try to blend excursions with some exploring on our own and so we visited Kona on our own. Our first stop was the Royal Place. It was a good choice. The docents were friendly and helpful in our learning. We then walked around on our own doing some shopping, admiring the waterfront, and eating lunch. It was a great day. Everyone we met was friendly. I guess they understand how to spread "Aloha"! Read Less
