NCL was present in the baggage claim area to meet us. Don't expect a Lei greeting here... that comes at the NCL embarkation facility. We had a large group. The lady who met us was very patient as we assembled, found luggage, etc. We had to wait for a long time - 20 minutes at least for a shuttle to arrive large enough for our group. The actual embarkation process was smooth - lei greeting, cold water and lemonade, etc. The process of identification, security screening, registration confirmation, etc. was smooth. Read Less

The embarkation process worked well for us. Being at platinum status, we got to use the shorter/faster line so that was nice. Also, everything was inside an air-conditioned space so that was nice (no waiting outside in the humidity as ... Read More

I spent a few days here prior to the cruise. I highly recommend seeing Pearl Harbor and trying a photography tour of Oahu. It was so beautiful.

Beautiful port and NCL provided a free pre-cruise hotel night at the Hyatt Regency. Traffic is horrible here especially in the mid-afternoon when all the flights come in.

Honolulu was a very nice city. After disembarking we went straight to the airport. It had free internet and was very beautiful especially with all the gardens.

We really enjoyed Waikiki. Food/drinks are incredibly expensive and not helped by our $$. We stayed at Sheraton Princess Kaulani which was a great hotel (albeit very dated) in a great locatio. We found it very easy to get around the island ... Read More

The Road to Hana was recommended, but we went the opposite direction. The road was windy and narrow, but the view was amazing. We stopped in at a vouple of art galleries/shops, did a little climbing and wandering, and had a great time.

Short day in Honolulu, but don't know why. GRAND PRINCESS stayed until late so passengers could actually have time to do something in Honolulu - we left at 4.

The port is a way from town so there were options of taxis, a free shuttle to Walmart, or a free shuttle that went via Maui Divers jewellery centre, then onto Waikiki or the Ala Moana Center. We took the free shuttle to Maui Divers jewellery centre, and as we were some of the first off the ship, we were in the first groups to go through. It didn't take too long, and then we waited a short time for our free shuttle to Waikiki. I did hear later that this process was taking two hours, so I would not have been happy with that! Once at Waikiki we caught the Pink Line hop on hop off bus for $2 each and while it was crowded, this line took an hour and went past Waikiki beach and to various hotels and shops. The bus was a double decker soft top, but with no windows up top the rain showers came through a bit. I walked down to Waikiki beach and some of the hotels that front onto it and it was very busy. It was good to wander around town and the International Marketplace until it was time to head back for the free shuttle. There was increasing frustration from fellow passengers as the buses filled up quickly and the wait was longer than anticipated. However, our bus driver was very humorous, dealing with cranky passengers with ease and comedy. He reminded us of the animal who lives the longest on earth – the turtle – so slow down, it’s better for your health! Read Less
