Chiefs Luau from cruise ship

Has anyone done the Chief's Luau from the Princess Grand? They have bus pick-up and return, but I am concerned about returning on time to board the ship.

Off shore activities booked on board the ship that has bus pick up and return, will wait for passengers to return. If there is a delay on the tour bus returning to the pier from the Luau, because of circumstances, the ship will wait for the tour bus to return with the passenger for disembarkation later that night.

The Chief's Luau ... where? They have more than one location ... and neither is anywhere close to where your ship will dock.

If this luau is part of a ship's excursion ... then it is guaranteed that the ship will wait for you. If it is not connected commercially with the ship, you're running a serious risk.

"The Chief's Luau ... where? They have more than one location"

Only one location that I know of. It is at Sea Life Park.

Chief Sielu also has Fia Fia in two locations at Ko'Olina.

From your question, it appears that this is not a cruise ship excursion or you wouldn't have to question it.

I looked at the excursions for Grand Princess Hawaii cruise & did not see any luaus on the list for any of the ports in Hawaii.

Contact Chief's Luau & ask them what time their luau is over & what time they would drop you off at the cruise pier.

Perhaps one of the Waikiki luaus would give you more time to get back to the ship.

Mahalo for all your replies. We probably will not do this, even though we were told we would be back to the ship by 9:30....just seems a little risky.

Have you gone on your cruise yet, and if so, which Luau did you go to and did you like it? We are going on the Grand Princess in October and really want to do a luau. worried about hte time restriction also.
