Aloha fellow Cruisemates! Mac and I are Hawaii virgins (tee hee), so we're hoping to pick up information from those of you who have sailed this itinerary before.
We're kind of nodding our heads at the Fern Grotto/luau excursion, but haven't made up our minds. Please let us know if this tour is a "must". A whale watching excursion would be great too. We'd also appreciate your opinion on whether it's better to book ship tours or go independent?
We love to golf, but can't hit the ball straight if our lives depended on it, so we've substituded the actual game for the "golf channel". Our local golfers sleep much better at night knowing they won't have to duck and dodge now that we're not on the course very much.
I do have one personal goal for this cruise. Having 7 Princess cruises under our belts, I have yet to make it to an afternoon tea. But with 8 glorious days at sea, I might get there yet!
