Default Car rentals on 7 day Hawaii cruise

I am thinking of renting a vehicle during our 7 day cruise of Hawaii islands. My parents are going and they are in their late 70's to early 80's. Also, anyone have suggestion on excursions we might be interested in?

retcop:

I have found that a car rental is the best way to see the islands. All major rental agencies provide shuttle service to and from the piers however I would check when you make your reservations because a few of them are located at the airport: I.E. Kauai.

Some things not to miss: Road to Hana on Maui: Waimea Canyon on Kauai. A helicopter trip if your parents are up to that. A luau is also something that would be of great interest. Also a trip to Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial is something that is something I won't ever forget.

The Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu can be a great way to spend a day and learn about the Polynesian culture.

Take care,
Mike

Default Stay with the Car

I'd stay with renting a car (or minivan), excursions are overpriced, plus you'll see more of the islands without having to wait for a large group.
