Nice place

Honolulu has a great atmosphere with the beach and mountains close by. But the US is very expensive and a decent hotel is a rip off

Reminded us of Vegas...huge crowds milling along both sides of the street. Scores of very high end stores. Do it once for a sense of the place than avoid it at all costs :)

Not sure why this place is called downtown since there is an actual downtown which is not Waikiki. We spent a day and a half here in Waikiki. There is lots of walking and tourist just about everywhere. The main street has all the shopping including high end. I was kind of disappointed because if I wanted to do walking... More

Weather : didn't expect to be so humid. I guess that was the only disappoint. Plenty of things to do, if you like to be on the go. Best place for hike Diamondhead. Cheapest is taking the city bus but you Will have to do more walking than parking in the parking lot. Polynesian cultural center was worth every cent.... More

Hawaii is the most romantic place that I have ever been to. The beach is amazing and the shopping in downtown Hawaii is great too. I cannot find anything bad to say about Hawaii. Everyone should try to go there at least once in there lifetime.

Honolulu is really nice, the beaches are tropical, the mountains in the background beautiful. You wouldn't go back due to the price of basic accommodation and food but was a great experience. The nature elsewhere in Hawaii is way better though

I have mixed feeling over downtown Honolulu. True, there are many things that are worth seeing in the downtown area but on the flip side there are many areas that I would feel uncomfortable in. That being said, it's true of most large cities. I would definitely encourage everyone to visit the tourist sites downtown but as always, use common... More

A 7 day Hawaii Cruise ended (for our group of 16 friends) on Oct. 3, 2015 as we returned to the pier in Oahu-Honolulu at 9 AM. Our flight home was not scheduled until 8:PM. The search for luggage storage and how to fill our last day in Hawaii ended when I made contact with Greg and Mark at ShoreTrips.... More
