Does any one know where the ship docks in Hilo? WE want to rent a car and the web site I went on said there was a rental place at the airport but dont know how far that will be from the ship! YOu know this is my wifes and mine first cruise and it does not take long to starting learning a few things.I called the T.A we booked the cruise thru to help us rent a car and she said that she couldnt help us.She had some excuess about having to go thru the cruise line or something. Even tho there web site had the tab for car rentals that I was useing.I think its time to find a new T.A whatdo you think?
The airport is less than 5 minutes from the pier in Hilo. Just double check that the company you booked with has shuttle service to and from the pier. Most do, but from a few years back I recall there was one that does not.
You could try Priceline too, and see what they might offer for a car rental.
Like Kuki said, the AP is close. I recall see the planes coming in on final approach to what seemed a relatively short distance around the point from the pier. Also recall others having rental car arrangements from the pier, but don't know the details.
