About travel55

I retired from the government and went into the travel business for fun! My husband is still working and owns his own business so I often look for someone to cruise with.

October 2015 - 6 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Star

September 2015 - 10 Night Hawaii Southbound (Vancouver To Honolulu) Cruise on Carnival Legend

Best Way to See all the Islands

We enjoyed the 5 days at sea at the beginning of the cruise.  So relaxing.  There were excursions we enjoyed at each of the islands.  We had anytime dining and enjoyed dining with others, but two times when we arrived after the first round of seating we were seating alone.  The food was OK but not outstanding.

travel55's Tips

Honolulu, Oahu - We did the Pearl Harbor without the shopping (which was full) and drop off at the airport. At Pearl Harbor it is up to the Navy if you can take the ride over to the actual memorial (which is the only thing that costs $. They said we could save the ticket and come back, but we were leaving that night.
Nawiliwili, Kauai - Definately check out the tour to "Hawaii's Grand Canyon". It is definately worth the trip. You get a great deal of information from the tour director along the way.
Hilo, Hawaii - I did the Helicopter Ride and my husband did the Lava Tubes hike. We both enjoyed. We found after there was a Hop On Hop Off bus that we could have done before our tour.
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii - It was a shuttle ride to the island. We didn't see any excursions that interested us. We went ashore in the afternoon and checked out some of the shops. Found some great Hawaiian shirts.
Kahului, Maui - We really enjoyed the Luau, both the entertainment and the food. Try to get off the ship to be on the first bus to leave so you get a seat closer to the stage.
Carnival Legend Carnival Legend - The Serenity lounge filled up early.
