I'm just booking a 2 week land in Hawaii now. No hotels are that reasonable in Oahu, and I would personally be afraid to get one that was. Some of the areas you wouldn't want to be in at all. We have stayed at Sheraton Princess Kauilani (Spelling). It's accross the street from the beach, and next to the International Market Place (great souvenir shopping. Also lots of restaurants, a huge mall, and a variety of things there. Does your cruise line offer a Honolulu add-on as an offer? Most do for various ports in the back of the brochure, and that might be the way to go. Hawaiian Village is very popular among some people, but down at one end of Waikiki, and out of the easy mainstream, where it would be difficult getting to some restaurants, etc. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, as I should be wrapping up final plans within the next couple of days myself. Be sure to allow yourself enough time so you can see Arizona Memorial, as well as Punch Bowl National Cemetary. Sounds awful, but a must see. Polynesian Cultural Center is also magnificient. It's not open on Sunday's, as it's run by the Mormon Church. Would recommend a bus tour to that, as you might pay more, but everything included, and you don't have to worry about a rental car.
Have fun! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]
