Thanks for the info. We are doing the Old Lahaina Luau in Maui not the luau the ship provides. Fodor's said it was the best luau. I heard it takes 15 min. walking from the dock in Maui. I am afraid that if I do not book excursions in advanced my husband will want to stay on the ship all the time. He is already worried abut walking to the luau in Maui. Do you know anything about snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay? I would like to be able to stand in the water or sit on the shore if we get tired. This is our very first long cruise. I hope you have a great cruise also.
