Travel time and getting around on the islands

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (mid 60's) are planning our trip of a lifetime. So far our plans are as follows: Fly in to Oahu, stay 4 nights, board the NCL Pride of America ship for 7 days, de-board and fly to Maui for 4 days (3 nights).
All of those items are pretty much already set in stone. My current question is what kind of time does one have to allow to get around to Pearl Harbor from a hotel that is say close to Diamond Head and also to the Polynesian Culture Center? Is the traffic terrible? Can we get along with buses and taxi's? Really would like to be able to ride and not drive if possible.
2. It sounds like we will need to rent a car in Maui as we would like to do the road to Hanna and beyond. Can we rent for just the 2 days of that trip? or will we need a car for the other 2 days? We didn't think we would rent on the day of our arrival as we probably won't get to start our drive until Sunday due to the travel time between the islands and probably not being able to do much on that first day......
We also are looking hotels ($200.00 ish) as close to the beach as we can get for both of the islands. I'm a little picky - hate smelly or run down places......I may have to go up a bit to eliminate those issues. To us $200 is a lot, but expect I have to pay that in Hawaii. Looking for suggestions. I read with interest the suggestions to get a condo due to price, but I imagine renting apartments/rooms in this way would probably also mean they are further "out" and may require a car rental......could offset the price difference...........?
That's waaay enough info and questions for my first post. Sorry if I ran on.
