Default Hawaii cruise - Sapphire Princess

For Maui, we are thinking the volcano tour looks good, but not sure if it is on a motorcoach bus. would prefer to go with a small group if possible. anyone done the one the ship offers? Princess Cruises : Haleakala Crater . What is better for Maui, an island type tour or a snorkeling tour. Can't really make up our minds on this one.

For Honolulu we are going to do an island tour. My favorite so far is Oahu Island Tour - Best of Oahu Island TourIt hits most of the hot spots we want to see and its $100 each which fits our budget

For Big Island we have already booked Big Island Volcano Tours and Excursions Hawaii. Big Island Volcano Tours and Excursions Hawaii
We paid $70. the similar tour from the ship is $150

Undecided for Kauai. Every tour seems expensive. We are considerint Paddle Kauai Jungle Streams, Kauai Kayaking & Canoeing | Tours, sightseeing tours, activities & things to do | or an island tour, if we can find a good rate. Anyone have recommendations

Now that you have completed the cruise, perhaps you will be able to give us some guidance on the types of tours / usage of time when the ship is in port at various islands. My wife and I will be joining a similar cruise on 26 Nov.

How were the conditions of the sea during those long sea days to and from the islands.

Many thanks.
