Curiosity will get me there one day - not by cruise ship though - just trying to break up the flight into manageable sectors.
Enjoy your trip.
PS Another land trip to France I see
I have lived in Hawaii several times. Never before have I heard "too built up" and "Big Island" in the same sentence.
The Big Island, also known as Hawaii County, is 4,000 square miles, and growing. That's twice the size of the US State of Delaware. They have only two places that anyone would call a city; Kona and Hilo. Kona has 30,000 inhabitants and Hilo has 40,000. Most of the rest of the island is a National Park, with a few beach houses and small communities along a few coasts. A large part of the island doesn't even have roads.
Are you sure we are talking about the same island?
