more advice please!

I am planning a vacation to hawaii for a week in December for two people (27 yrs old) (not sure which hotel yet- but i like Ilima) I have four things that we are interested in doing and am not sure if we should do them all or how much we should bring.

1. A Luau- i was looking into the Paradise Cove Luau. Should we purchase the reg package? Would it be worth going to this one or Hale Koa and would we be able to go to a military hotel to see a luau? I am open to suggestions for the Luau-don't want to spend more than $125 each though. I've heard of PCC (don't know about an all day luau-is it to far from waikiki?, Germaine's-what is the diff between Germaines and Paradise Cove?

2. Pearl Harbor- I saw the price for the Battleships of WWII package for $69.99 each....Is this usually sold out? Could i wait to purchase tickets when we get there or ahead of time online?

3. Diamond Head - All day trip? free?

4. Parasailing-One of the #1 choices. I don't know how much this costs? weight limit for tandem?

I plan to bring a combination of cash and credit card (american express). How much does someone approx spend for one week?

(one of us is a strict vegetarian).

day 1-arrive-relax

day 2-Diamond Head

day 3-parasailing

day 4-beach/luau

day5 pearl harbor

day 6-beach/shopping

day 7-home

Any Comments/ Feedback would be GREATLY appreciated

2, Pearl Harbor -- the price you are looking at is for a commercial tour, probably with transportation. You can take the bus to Pearl Harbor for $2.50 per person. There is a visitors' center there where you can get tickets, or you can get them on line in advance.

You can attend the Hale Koa Luau on a space available basis. It's rarely sold out so there shouldn't be an issue.
