We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 11&13 and have just booked a trip to Hawaii for late June early July 2012 and all very excited as we will be escaping a few weeks of winter.
We are planning to hire a car on arrival and stay somewhere on the Island of Oahu for the first 3 nights and after some reading the North Shore seems to be the popular choice so were looking at the Turtle Bay Resort as my husband loves golf and the kids love snorkeling.
We have then booked on the Pride of America for the 7 night cruise and spend the last 7 nights in Waikkiki doing some activities and shopping.
We are after some advice if Turtle Bay Resort is our best option to spend 3 nights and any recommendations on where to stay in Waikkiki?
Also should we booking tours and car hire prior to arriving in Hawaii as I would imagine July would be a busy time.
Any feedback is very much appreciated.
