Could someone suggest what to see at the four ports we will dock...Maui, Oahu....Kona, and Hilo on the Big Island?

if you can afford it take a full island heliocopter tour on maui which lasts an hour and includes many waterfalls and the awesome landscape inside of haleakala's crater (10,000 foot tall inactive volcano)...best time is morning tour, before clouds come in. Big island offers flyovers of active volcanos...seeing an island from the air gives you access to place you couldnt get to and gives a wonderful overview of the islands varied landscapes.

If you want an economical tour try a whale watching tour in maui between Nov. and April
they have some as cheap as $20 from the harbor at ma'alea..probably more $$ from lahaina

A good source for activities can be found at 101thingstodo.com pick the island your interested in....or try a yahoo search on hawaii tours, or hawaii activities....there are a few tour companies like activities warehouse that offer tours on multiple islands...just be sure that they pick up from the pier!! as only Oahu has public transportation.

Alliegirl, Welcome! I don't know the timeline for Hawaiian cruise ports but if you are there for an early am ride to the summit of Haleakala on Maui, it's so worth it, especially if you have clear weather for the spectular sunrise. If you do this, bring some warm cloths as it is very cool prior to sunrise and the trip back down. The landscape reminds one of another planet. On Oahu, again, depending on time available, a ride to the other side of the island for a tour of the Polenesian Cultural Village (can spend 1/2 day there easily) is well worth it. The visit to Pearl Harbor and the memorials will bring a tear to your eye and be one of your highlights. Enjoy..
