Help! I'm being told our itinerary is too busy!
We’ll be celebrating our 25th anniversary in September. I’ve always wanted to take a cruise to the Caribbean but my husband won’t go so a trip to Hawaii was his counter offer. He says he really doesn’t want to go, he’s just doing it for me. Still, I’ve tried to add in some stuff I think he would really like (and I don’t care to do), like surfing lessons. The best airfare I found was from 11/12/13-11/21/13 leaving from New York City so I’m looking at those dates.
We’re thinking of 4 days in Oahu, a quick trip to Kauai for a helicopter tour and then 5 days in Maui. We’d like to do the road to Hana and would like a convertible for that but a regular compact car for the rest of the time (if needed).
Anyway, below is what I came up with. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
