The basics

Honolulu has two cruise ship terminals: The first is at Pier 2, the harbor’s main cruise terminal, and the second is at Pier 11, located next door to Aloha Tower Marketplace and its warren of stores and waterfront restaurants. Passengers pre-booked on a shore excursion typically meet their tour guides inside whichever terminal they’ve landed at. If you are heading out independently, downtown Honolulu is less than 15 minutes away on foot.
