Cruising Hawaiian Islands--Need Your Suggested Activities

My girlfriend and I are coming to Hawaii for the first time in late Feb. We are both adventurous travellers in our early 20s.

Our cruise schedule is:

Day Port Arrive Depart

Sat Honolulu

Sun overnight Monday Maui (Kahului)

Tue Hilo

Wed Kona

Thu over night Fri Kauai

Sat Honolulu

In addition to the cruise, we are staying a total of 3 extra nights in Honolulu.

We love the beach, snorkelling and nature. Would be very appreciative on your advice on couple of questions:

1) What hotel in Honolulu? Was thinking one of the Outriggers. We like to be close to the action and price isn't a concern. Your suggestions?

2) Where are the best beaches for snorkelling, etc?

3) Any suggested intinerary for the islands outside of Oahu?

4) I've read some Cruise passengers rent a car at each port. Is this the best idea? Which islands is it best to rent a car for?

5) Where is the best place to a luau?

6) What sight or activity do we not want to miss?

Your advice is really appreciated. I want this to be a really special trip for her. Thinking it's the right time to pop *the* question.

Have you checked out TA's sister site - Cruise Critic? boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=62

I think you can get all your questions answered there. We're heading out on the same itenerary in 11 days - and have a car rented at each port.

Good luck on that question popping!!
