My family is going on the Star in Hawaii during the Christmas week this year! We are very excited and have been reading the cruise reviews to plan ahead. We have never been to Hawaii before and look forward to enjoying the islands. In the reviews, I found that most people rented cars and went off on their own to discover the islands. My question is, does anyone recommend the NCL excursion tours? In reading through them on the NCL website, it looks like there are some great tours. But would it be easier and cheaper to rent a car and do some of these same things on our own? Also, we really want to take a helicopter tour. Any recommendations on which island to do it on, and if we should go through NCL or through the heli company direct? Thanks!
