  1. Here is a fun video about the Kauai Marriott, which at the time was the Westin Kauai. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP_drlbBpRM
  2. RTH bores me to tears; always has. If you do a "half RTH", maybe it is only half as boring, but I doubt you'd get to Hana on such a tour.
  3. The only way I would do a Na Pali tour on a short window (8AM to 5PM) is on the official cruise company tour.
  4. One or two days is nowhere near long enough. One day, you can do Pearl Harbor. If you have two days, maybe a day to see the North Shore, but to do Oahu (Honolulu) justice, you need a week.
  5. None, none, none!! DO NOT do "swim with dolphin tours", especially on the Big Island. These tours are disrupting the sleep patterns of dolphins and harming the population. Go to the Big Island Forum of TripAdvisor and read the Top Questions and topics on this. You do not need to join TA to read the topics, just to reply. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29218-i304-k8790452-Swim_w_dolphins-Kauai_Hawaii.html https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g28932-i36-k5718272-Tourists_and_dolphins_article_please_read-Hawaii.html

    Honolulu luaus

    Nutridge Luau would be my first pick (assuming you are not U.S. military or DoD), especially if you have just one day.
  7. Like Steve, I'd never stay near LAX. The Doubletree and Crowne Plaza are both fine for a night before a cruise. Uber is pretty easy from LAX, even with the new system. Which airline are you arriving on?
  8. I don't expect a rebate anyplace, especially not in third world countries. I buy what I like and want if the price is reasonable. I'd never buy based on expecting a rebate. If I wanted diamonds (which I would not), I'd go to a diamond district in a place like LA or NYC. Loudly announcing what amounts to a boycott of purchasing anything in Mexico seems petty.
  9. Did you try searching MUTS in this forum? I'll try to update when I get back from Hawaii, but in the meantime, you might search the forum. Three I heard mentioned in other topics were The Joker, Jojo Rabbit and Judy.
  10. How much time have you spent in Orange County (Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, etc)? Or Pasadena? You don't need to go all the way to JTNP to experience areas outside of LA.
  11. And what does that have to do with the topic? A 15 day, LA to LA trip stopping in Hawaii?
  12. The USS Midway is next to the SD Cruise Port, the USS Iowa is next to the LA Cruise Port. It's just about 2 hours with no traffic, 3 hours with. San Pedro is a the south side of LA so you miss a lot of the worst of LA traffic. Here is the route.
  13. You'd have no problem at any of the hotels I mentioned then. All three include breakfast and are larger rooms. Since they all also have kitchens in them, the hotels have a little mini-store to buy some food if you are hungry.
  14. How late is "late"? A lot of the shuttles cut off at 11PM or so. The Homewood Suites, TownePlace Suites and Residence Inn. The Residence Inn will send a shuttle anytime, if you call.
  15. It depends on how you define "moderate", but Residence Inn Downtown Convention Center, Homewood Suites Downtown and Homewood Suites Convention Center are all good suite hotels. I like the location of the Residence Inn best.
