Hawaiian Excursions

Hello all

We are going on a 15 day Hawaiian cruise in November. I see a couple of different Pearl Harbor tours to choose from. Which one do you recommend? And, which excursions in Hawaii do you all recommend? We were really hoping to be able to spend a day at a resort but they’re already booked up.

Thanks so much!

There are many options. If you want to see Pearl Harbor, you can book with the ship or on your own. Depends on the line you are on. Check with the length of time you are in port. You don't want to miss the boat.

There are rental car options available at each port. You can also go out and drive around at your leisure.

Looking forward to your return and what you decided. We haven't been yet, and plan to in the future! Have fun!

Two years ago we got off a cruise in Sydney, flew up to Waikiki and stayed a week in a hotel there. We have been on all the islands numerous times over the years but it had been a long stretch since we spent any time on Oahu. I took an eight hour around the island of Oahu tour, including Pearl. Been a long time since I was on the north shore. I couldn't get wife interested in such a day long tour, but it was worth it, with 24 nice folk in a very comfortable van. That was really fun for me since I have taken that drive a lot in rental cars but I was doing the driving and unable to really look around.

A future trip for us. Enjoy.

It's awesome you're going to catch Pearl.

There is a ton of history in a very small area.

The Missouri is right next to the Arizona. There is the visitor center as well as the Bowfin.

Waikiki is just down the street from Honolulu Harbor if that is your thing. You should be able to get a picture of the Aloha Tower from the deck.

Dont forget to look across the harbor to see if any of the Coast Guard Cutters are in.

The further you are from Waikiki, the cheaper the food.

Might I suggest Spam musubi? Perhaps Chili and Rice from Zippy's. Look for locomoco on the menu. If someone offers you a hot malasada, say yes. If you see an L&L Drive In, go for it. It's cheap, quick, and local.

Oi! I think I've gone on long enough. Now I'm homesick.
