Hawaii-Be on ship 2 hours before departure?
We have decided to do a Hawaii cruise in 2011. I saw in the itinerary that you had to be back on the ship two hours before departure. One of the departures is 2pm. You hardly have time to get off the ship that morning.
Do you really have to be back two hours before departure?
Is renting a car for the day easy to do? Or do you get more out of the trip by taking an excursion?
We are planning on flying in to Honolulu a few days early. How quickly will we have seen all we really want to see? I know usually I would like to spend a week in most places but have also heard that Oahu is murder for traffic. So, rent a car or tours?
We have heard the good, bad and the ugly about NCL and only hope for the best. We mainly want to enjoy the scenery.
If anyone has any comments they would be appreciated.
