Sep 29, 2019 - Kahului, Maui

29 September 2019 A good night's sleep as we cruised to Maui. It was all smooth sailing and we arrived at Maui just after 7am. Went to breakfast and took the day's activity sheet with us. Decided we would check about going to Lahaina. Didn't look too far away from the ship on the map, but soon found out that ports are like airports - a long way from things. The cheapest and easiest way for four of us to travel to the other side of the island, was to go by taxi. We had a great driver, and after leaving us in the Front Street to do our own...

2019 Bear Hunt

Sep 28, 2019 - Honolulu to Kahului, Maui

28 September 2019 Well, we have made it to Hawaii, and after an uncertain start, we met up for breakfast and start orientating ourselves. Walked around the complex & went exploring, and soon had it all sorted out. Had to be back to our rooms by 10am when our luggage was being collected to be taken to the ship. Check out was 11am, and pickup for the ship was 12.15pm. We were "old pros" at the Hilton by this stage!! The terminal was packed by the time we arrived, and checkin was very slow. There was a parade through town for the Aloha day,...

2019 Bear Hunt

Sep 16, 2019 - Day 5

Today is our next excursion. We get to ride a submarine. We started the day a little later. We did not have to meet our tour bus until 9:15. Since we did this yesterday, we now knew the ropes. No problem. We decided to have breakfast at a restaurant called The Skyline Main Dining Room. It is a very nice restaurant done in an art deco style. When we arrived, it was not very crowded. Our food arrived not long after ordering. I had an omelet with potatoes, bacon and toast. Cheryl had scrambled eggs with fruit. Both were good. After breakfast...

Hawaii Cruise 2019

Sep 15, 2019 - Day 4

Today was our first full day on the ship, and we were scheduled for our first excursion. Our ship docked at Maui early this morning. We needed to get up early and be ready for the excursion by 8 AM. We went to the buffet for breakfast. Once again, the buffet had lots of choices. I had waffles with a type of bananas foster topping. Cheryl had scrambled eggs with sausage. Breakfast done, we got ready and headed for the meeting point on the dock. The excursion was called “The Road to Hana”. We met our tour guide and the six other people on...

Jan 20, 2019 - Kahului, Maui

Our ship docked at 8:00 a.m. at Kahului, Maui. We immediately disembarked to begin our first excursion - a 9-1/2 hour trip on the famous "Road to Hana". This is a twisting, turning, narrow road. Fortunately we had an excellent driver and tour guide. He made sure we saw all the sights along the way and even threw in an extra stop at the end so we could see some large sea turtles. A long but enjoyable day.

Jan 22, 2014 - Jan. 22 - Maui Beach Hotel - Kahului

These are pictures from my balcony at the Maui Beach Hotel. You can see the Iao Valley from one angle and the beach from another. My bags have just been picked up in preparation for our next move. We are now going to the island of Molokai 2 nights. Molokai was the site of a leprosy colony run by St. Damien. Many native Hawaiians got leprosy from the Europeans since they had not natural immunity. My book club read the book Molokai. I would highly recommend it. Today will be a long day. We go to lunch. Then bus to Lahaina Town to shop. At...

Jan 20, 2014 - Sun. Jan. 19 - Flight to Maui - Iao Valley

We were to leave the Kona Sheraton for the Kona Airport at 11:15 AM. We had to have our checked luggage ready for pickup from our hotel rooms by 10:15. Then met in the lobby with our carry-on luggage at 11:00 AM. We got to the airport at NOON. Our Road Scholar leader had already picked up our boarding passes so all we had to do was check our luggage, go through security and wait. Our flight was not until 2:00 PM with boarding beginning at 1:40. Denver was playing New England in the playoffs. There were no TVs since the airport was...

Sep 8, 2011 - How many hours does it take to fly to Hawaii? 8 hours too many!

ok, this plane flight was a little much. Sitting for 8 hours on a plane, packed in like sardines, is not my idea of a fun time. When we boarded the plane, the flight attendants informed us that the entertainment was not working, so there was no movie on the flight, no radio frequencies to listen to, and the electrical outlets didn't work which meant no phone or computer charging on the flight. This seriously disappointed Chris, since he wanted to work on the plane and finish his presentation due by the end of next week. He was able to...

Feb 24, 2011 - Maui - Day 17 & 18 - Jungle Fever

Aloha from Maui. We landed yesterday morning and have been on the road non stop. Day 17 (Feb 23) was a mild but long day, we left the big island at 8:24am and arrived at 8:54am. Plenty of time to get organized for this weeks journey however Jason came down with a high fever and cold so we spent about 2ours in the costco parking lot so he could sleep the fever off as it was getting progressively worse as the day wore on. We got JJ some cold pills at Costco so he took them asap and once feeling better we were on our way to get a camping...

Jan 22, 2011 - přelet na Maui

Ráno jsme si ještě stihli zaplavat v Aneoho'omalu Bay, prohlídli si blízké petroglyfy (původní havajci ryli obrazce do lávy), dali si hamburger u Wendy's (jediná pobočka na ostrově). Rozloučili jsme se s pujčeným autem, jelikož nás čekal přelet na vedlejší ostrov Maui. Přelet byl skvělý zážitek sám o sobě, letadlo mělo jen 9 míst (takže všichni měli místo u okýnka), z letadla byl krásný výhled na ostrovy a při přeletu moře jsme zahlédli i veleryby. Na Maui nám byl v autopujčovně přidělen opět Dodge Caliber, tentoktát bílý, se kterým jsme...

Havaj 2011

Dec 19, 2010 - Kahului, Maui

So my orignial plan for today was a beach day, but I woke up and it was overcasted, so I went down to the front desk to find out what is there to do. The options they had were, take a 9 hour bus ride to and from Hana which is suppose to be gorgeous with waterfalls, or a 5 hour tour that brings you to the rainforest and hike into the rainforest and see waterfalls. I dread bus rides after last years advenutre with them and I went for the hike in the rainforest! So, there were about 10 people in our group. On the van ride to the rainforest, I...
