  1. If you are a suite guest, they will hold them in Cagney’s for you.
  2. Wearing your cabin key card on a neck lanyard just screams, “I’m a tourist” to all the potential pickpocketers.
  3. Was the Distinctive Voyage Package part of booking a suite, or could non-suite guests get this also? Was there an additional cost for this package, or something you got for free when you booked the cruise?
  4. You do go back down the same way you went up, so you can admit defeat. On our way up, I did meet one person who found a place to sit and wait while the rest of her group made the ascent, but there are really not a lot of areas like this on the way up. If you’re out of shape, I don’t recommend trying it. One test would be, how many flights of stairs can you climb before you get out of breath? If it is less than five, go to the zoo, as a previous poster suggested.
  5. Yes, the luggage storage area is right next to the luggage drop off that you use before your cruise. You don’t even need to go outside. They tag each bag with a claim tag, so you get the correct bag when you pick up your bags.
  6. After our POA cruise last week, we had a 5:30 flight out of Honolulu, so we did most of the following walking tour before our flight https://www.hawaii-guide.com/oahu/sights/top-10-historic-sites-of-downtown-honolulu-a-walking-tour. We didn’t do it in order. After dropping our bags at the luggage storage facility at the port ($5 a bag), we walked to the ‘Iolani Palace. It’s about 0.6 miles from the port. We paid $27 (adult price) for a tour with a docent. The last tour is at 11:15, so we didn’t want to miss it. It was really worth it. After the tour, you can go in the basement for a self-guided tour of additional artifacts, including a 13 carat diamond. We managed to visit six of the locations. Then, we walked back to the port, picked up our luggage, and sat inside on the benches so we could reshuffle the items in the luggage in preparation for our flights. There are restrooms which we used to freshen up before our flight, as well. If you want an active excursion before sitting for hours on a plane, I definitely recommend this plan.
  7. One person in our party does not want to hike up Diamond Head. Is there a welcome center or store where she could spend some time while the rest of us hike? More importantly, will there be a place (preferably indoors or in the shade) where she can sit for a while? Thank you.
  8. Last summer 12 ounces of freshly squeezed orange juice was $3.25 at Cagney’s, the restaurant for suite guests for breakfast.
  9. I went there a few years ago when I was on a land based vacation in Kauai. I loved the tour. It was more than just a chocolate farm. They have many fruit trees, and you get to sample various tropical fruits, depending on what is ripe on the farm. They also showed us the vanilla beans that they were growing and had for sale. They cracked open a cacao bean so we could taste the fresh, unroasted bean. They explained how chocolate is processed from raw bean to chocolate bars. Then, we had a chocolate sampling of ten different chocolates which were sourced from many different locations. It’s an expensive tour, but I would definitely recommend it.
  10. Were there any excursions available on day two in Honolulu?
  11. Can you post a link to your video? I’d like to compare it to what we saw last June.
  12. You can use this website to find mass times at churches in San Juan. It includes phone numbers and links to the parish websites. You’ll probably need to call to see what their usual schedule for Christmas is. http://masstimes.org
