Pride of America

Will we port close enough that we can enjoy shopping some of your stores without renting a car or taxi? Will certainly do excursion to Lahaina first day but would like to rest on ship part of second day and maybe do some local shopping. One of our group is with a walker so would like something close. Thanks, Carol

There are some small stores within an easy walk of Nawiliwili Harbor on Kaua`i, and free shuttles to Walmart, Kmart, Hilo Hattie. Kmart is within walking distance of Kukui Grove Mall.

Took the cruise in March. The harbor at Maui is in an industrial area. I don't think it is close to many stores. Especially for someone in a walker. I think there are shuttles but I did not use them. A cab would not be that expensive

There seems to be a Hilo Hattie's at every port and they do all they can to accommodate you.

At the Kahului port there are no stores within a walking distance. You would need to take an excursion or rent a car. A short cab ride would put you at Queen Ka'ahumanu Mall, Macy's has a store here.

On Maui I'd suggest sightseeing.

As pzp posted, easy shopping at the Kauai port.

The Hilo Hattie Store is 20 miles from the port in Kihei.

I agree with the suggestion to sightsee on your 2nd day as your first day in Lahaina will provide plenty of (and better) shopping options.

The cruise line has some short excursions that would still give you time to relax on board the ship. The Iao Valley excursion is one that you might find interesting. Your friend could stay close to the bus at the Iao Valley and still see the spectacular Iao Needle.

At Kuhului, we rented a car. While waiting for the shuttle, we saw shuttles taking people to Walmart. So if you are dead set on shopping, you can take that Walmart shuttle.
