I spent a couple of weeks in Hawai'i with my sister and my cousin's roommate. We took the Pride of Americas for a week between the islands, and spent a few days in Waikiki before the boat, and a few days after the cruise on the North Shore. We flew in on Tuesday and rented a studio in Waikiki close to the canal but easy walking distance to the beach and shopping area. (About three blocks from the Duke's statue.) We used the tourist buses to move around when we did, from Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor.
