Maui: Road to Hana. Reviews said this was an unpaved, windy road. It is now paved. There are many curves and bridges but the guide was so informative, and he made so many frequent stops that the time went fast. Scenery is gorgeous. The water falls are numerous and beautiful. We had lunch at Waianapanapa State Park, at the Honokalali beach, a unique black sand beach. Spectacular! We ate coconut ice cream, freshly made, and went to Ho'okipa beach to see leatherback turtles. This was a fun and informative excursion. Read Less

Heavenly Road to Hana Tour was way more than expected. Be sure to sit on the drivers side of the bus if you want to look straight down, LOL!!! Lahaina - We rented a car for the day and did our own thing. Wonderful day.

Originally I reserved a rental car for my husband to drive the “Road to Hana” on Maui. We even brought our GPS and software to narrate the sights and stops along the 620 hairpin curves and 59 mostly one-lane bridges in 52 miles of incredible views to the tiny town of Hana. After marrying my husband, one of my best decisions was to cancel the car rental and go with the ship excursion. The tour on November 1, 2018, took 11 hours which includes the tender rides back to the ship! Good thing we cancelled the car rental as we would have seen very little except the road and likely been late back to the ship. The ship would have sailed without us had we not booked through Princess. The Polynesian Adventure Tours 25-person van driver, Jennifer, was the most skillful driver we ever experienced. We drive a 37 foot motorhome so know how difficult it is to maintain those speeds on such curvy roads and to know precisely where to stop and honk the horn before going into a one lane curve, and where the best photos should be taken. We saw sea turtles on the beach (while keeping a respectful distance), walked on black sand beaches and through a lava tube to the ocean, enjoyed a box lunch by the sea, and took hundreds of photos. Jennifer kept up a steady narration and made sure we got plenty of bathroom breaks. It was a bit hard hearing at the back of the bus, and at times warm in spite of her efforts but every other aspect was excellent. The road was not too rough nor the tour too long for us, but I am sure the ship captain was not happy with the crew and other passengers having to wait so long for us. Renting a car and using the Road To Hana $10 phone app software would be OK if you were staying in a hotel. Read Less

Don't go! It's 6 hours on a small bus with a poor sound system over 100 miles of very windy twisty switchbacks. Made a lot of people queesy and motion sick.

The Road to Hana is LONG.
Sail Date: July 2018
The Road to Hana is LONG. Our driver was allowing folks too much time out of the van and we did not get back to the boat until 7PM. The air conditioning in the van was not working so it was long and HOT.

We rented a car and did the Road to Hana ourselves. It has very many curves and bridges you need to handle. The growth is so overgrown you can't see around it to see if anyone is coming when you have to yield. A lot of waterfalls near the bridges and people are pulling over on the narrow shoulder to get out which makes driving very dangerous. I would suggest taking a tour rather than driving. . .it was very stressful. When you get to Hana, there is a general store, one restaurant and one gas station. To me, not really worth the time and stress. Read Less

Unfortunately we were in a group of much older people who did not want to get off the van much or do anything adventurous. Our guide Paul took us to the Waikani falls where we swam but felt pretty rushed. We were also rushed at the black sand beach as we were the only ones who got out of the van. Why are you on a road to hand tour if you Don't want to walk on the black sand beach? There were stops along the way we wanted to do but no one else was interested including Dave's ice cream for homemade dairy free coconut ice cream. Our guide gave a lot of good info but got a little too political at times. Road to Hana is beautiful and lush but I wish we would have rented a jeep and done it ourselves. Read Less

For our second day, we planned to drive up to Haleakala Crater, but with low visibility due to extremely heavy rain we decided to take a short drive along the Road to Hana. The benefit of all that rain was that the waterfalls were spectacular! We went as far as the Botanic Gardens, which were lovely, but returned to the ship early in time for lunch at Cagneys and a rest in the afternoon on our deck. Read Less
