We rented a convertible from Enterprise for $50 for the day. Complimentary shuttle from the port and we used it to drive the Road to Hana. Long windy road, good banana bread, should go past Hana to the Oheo Gulch for sure. If you go that far, your entry there gains you entry to Haleakala so save that and do that the 2nd day (some people go up for sunrise, some for the sunset). Our second day we did the sunrise at Haleakala - no need to get a spot on the railing where everyone is crowding to get a good view. Go up the big bank of rocks and get an unobstructed view and a seat! We spent the afternoon on the west coast, seeing the beaches in Lahaina and Kaanapali. Read Less

Lahaina. As this was our entry onto USA soil, long long process of customs/immigration saw the first tenders going ashore at approximately midday (earlier for those who had booked shore excursions). A quaint place; much cleaner in the streets than Papeete, Moorea and Bora Bora. Some great places of historical interest within walking distance of the port, great restaurants, shopping. Read Less

Lahaina, Maui is a tender port - seas were rough so the tendering was a difficult and lengthy process - We waited until nearly 10.30am to go ashore and there was still a wait! I would have preferred to have mustered to wait for the tenders out on deck where we could enjoy the weather and see the whales - nobody comes to Hawaii to sit in a dark lounge watching CNN on mute while waiting for a tender that may take us ashore "Sometime Soon". Lahaina is a lovely town to wander around - lots to see and do and buy right off the pier. No need to go whale watching as the whales are all over the place and easily visible from the ship itself.

We didn't take any of the shore excursions but instead rented a car on our own. If you drive to Hana, continue beyond Hana all the way around the backside of Haleakala, but only if you have a strong stomach. This ride can be scary because most of it is on single-lane gravel roads, but it is one of the most exciting and beautiful drives on the islands. Read Less

Here on Maui, we were booked on the Rain Forrest and Waterfall Hiking Adventure Tour (JHM 475). it is about a 1 hour plus ride to the site of the trek. Let's start with the excursion. For the price ($179 per person), we thought that we were going to a secluded place where only people on this tour would be able to get to. To our disappointment, as we approached the "private" farm where the tour was to take place, we saw a long line of cars parked on the side of the road near a farm stand. As we trekked through this rain forest, all of the people who just parked on the side of the road had access to the same exact place we had paid over $350 to view. The tour itself was good, the rain forest was beautiful and the waterfalls were breathtaking, and half of the fun was trekking around to get to the different falls. However seeing all these other non tour people enjoying the same area as us for a lot less kind of deflated it for us. You do get to see some great waterfalls, and yes, you are in a rain forest, where yes, it does rain! So make sure you ask for a poncho from the tour guide, they have them available for you along with water boots (an elongated version of the standard water shoe that covers up to just below your knee)and there is no extra charge for these. You will get wet, if not from the rain forest, then you will from trekking through rivers and other small bodies of water to get to the waterfalls. Don't forget to ask for a walking stick...you will need it! The tour provided a box lunch (turkey sandwich), and some fresh fruit (pineapple and tangerine) for you, along with bottled water and a cookie. This was a very adventurous tour, but the price was not worth it. Rent a car, drive the Hana Highway and get a local to tell you how to get to the farm stand...then do it yourself! Maui itself was beautiful. Lahaina is a quaint town, reminiscent of a small New England village. Lots of shopping opportunities and the most remarkable tree you will even see! Where roots grow from the tree branches back into the ground. I think it was called a Banyan tree. It is right smack in the middle of the town and you can't not see it when you visit. Lahaina is on the "warm" or "sunny" side of the island. Breath-taking mountains only makes this port more charming and hospitable. The other side of the island is the "rainy" or "wet side". If I remember correctly, the sunny side of the island gets about five inches of water a year, and the wet side gets over 400 inches a year!! Don't forget, the tour takes you to the wet side!!

Kahului - Rent a car, but take the road less traveled North East vice the road to Hana to avoid the traffic. Road can be narrow and like a goat path in spots, but the scenery is awesome. We saw lots of whales along the way. If you are a geocacher like us (Jman & Magoo), there are plenty of worthy caches to snag. Haleakala Crater is exceptional and a "must do". We were there prior to sunset and the view was incredible. Rental car made it easy to pick our time. Read Less

A tender port-my first time doing so, and it was just fine. We did the Haleakala crater and Ocean center tour. Again, nice tour, good driver, really liked the Ocean Center. Long line waiting to get back on tenders, but went faster than it looked. Cute little town-while waiting in line, Mom and I went to find me some batteries, and found some delish macadamia ice cream and cookies to share with Dad, who was holding our place in line. Read Less

This was my least favorite island. We got off the ship on our own, took a cab to a beach for my son. I think it was Kaanapali Beach. I will say my mom and I are not outdoor people. So we get to the beach, no chairs, little shade. There was a nice shopping area right there. So my mom and I took turns watching my son in the water. Rented him a boogie board, he had a ball. It was a nice beach, quite a few people there. Came back and looked around the town area. Read Less

Lahaina is a great town, with many nice shops and restaurant. The tender process was a pain, especially for the return back to the ship -- allow ample time!

Arrived in Maui took the shuttle to the mall, turned right at Champions and waited for the public bus going to Lahaina it comes every 10:30-11:30 etc once an hour for $1. It is a safe bus, and air conditioned for a public bus that is amazing,,, it is beautiful ride to see this place it has shopping and crafts and very large banyan tree in the center of town. Best shaved ice ever in the town very nice woman and daughter that run it, very pretty same shops in all places otherwise go to the beach... they do have a tour on board the ship for the price of a bus that takes you back and forth it is much more expensive. Like I believe over $50+++ so pay $1. and do what the locals do... Had to rush back for tour Haleakala sunset crater tour with Roberts only cost me $25. with the 4 tour plan it was great had a wonderful tour guide called Peggy Sue bring a jacket it is some kinda cold up there went down to 25 degrees and you are up over 10000 feet above sea level. She gives you lots of facts and because her bus is smaller she can get up right to the top where other large buses are not allowed. Cows are walking all over the road it is free range but really great. The summit is amazing the air is cold and the weather keeps changing from rain to sun than rainbows it is a shock to the system. but worthwhile to see it is the largest crater in the world.The sunset is beautiful the stars coming back are beautiful. Thank you Peggy for your great tour and advice. Read Less

Sunday Maui: Picked up car and drove to Iao Valley, very pretty views and easy to find. Decided not to take the Hana drive due to all stuff we heard about the potential for getting car sick. Drove to Lahaina. Very cute sleepy town, we ate lunch at Ma La’s -right on the water. Good food, Kobe beef hamburger was really good. Kind of expensive would rather have eaten at a hole in the wall in town. (There are many beaches along the way to Lahaina where you can pull the car over and enjoy the sun and swim). We spent the afternoon on the beach trying to learn to surf with some friends who lived there. Got back to the pier about 7:00 to find no parking anywhere! Got real lucky after looking for a long time to find a group leaving for dinner. Monday Maui: Got up at the crack of dawn to drive back across the island to Maalaea (only took 20 minutes) to meet with the Pacific Whale foundation at 6:30 am to take the Molokai / Turtle Town snorkel trip. (Booked the trip for about $59 via Expedia. 7- noon trip. Found the excursion site in the Thrifty car rental Maui guide and map book available at the car rental place. These books are available at all the islands and offer good savings. Got the “last minute rate simply by asking for the best rate. Was on the same tour boat that the ship used, and the ship charged about $105 per person I think. The Pacific Whale Foundation was highly recommended and they did put on a great trip. We seemed to get to the sites before most of the other people so it was not quite so crowded. Molokai was decent snorkeling. On our way to Turtle Town we were treated to a whale breach. It was the first one they had seen for the season. Just like the Pacific Life commercial. Amazing!!! Can’t describe it well enough…. Also saw spinner dolphins. Turtle Town was great. Several huge sea turtles. They just mind their own business and will almost bowl you over to get where they want to go. After getting back about noon we drove south to Wailea. Toured around several of the high-end resorts and their beaches. Grand Wailea, Four Sseasons, Polo Club. Amazingly beautiful! There is a public beach access between the Grand Wailea and the Four Seasons with parking. The overwhelming smell from all the flowers is something you don’t get when looking at the pictures. Late in the day we returned the car and returned to the ship. Ate at Little Italy. Food was pretty good, portions are average sized. Waiter advised getting appetizer, salad, pizza and entrée plus dessert….That ended up being a lot of food. Service started out really good then about half way through became very slow to the point of we wondered what had happened. Read Less

Security is a bit much. If you rent a car there is a hotel about a 15 minute walk from the ship that allows you to park your car overnight for $5. This was the best $5 spent our entire 2 weeks in Hawaii.

Since we had to tender in, there were problems which delayed our getting on a tender. We had to wait an hour to get off. Going back was the same problem. We had to wait at the pier at least 45 minutes. Very disappointing.

Lahaina was our 1st stop after 5 sea days and was a tender so more of a hassle to come and go. Wound up adding a 2nd day here as our Hilo stop was cancelled - city was okay - took no tour - have been on Maui several times before. What really left an impression was how hot and humid this port day was - we walked around for 2 hours early in the day, no breeze just hot and humid. Not much memorable in the shopping area though scenery was good as you might expect. Read Less
