There are two cruise terminals in Honolulu: Honolulu Cruise Terminal and Terminal Pier 2. Honolulu Cruise Terminal has 2 locations where ships berth – Pier 10 and Pier 11. The two piers are adjacent to Aloha Tower Marketplace – a complex of shops and restaurants, overlooking the harbour. There are modern facilities for cruise passengers at the piers – there is luggage storage, porter service, restrooms and plenty of seating space. The nearest parking is about 0.7 miles from the piers. The terminal is only 4 miles, 10 min by car from the international airport. Traffic can be bad during peak times, so do allow extra time if you are arriving by car. There are a few public transportation options available. There is a “Red Line Trolley” that stops at Aloha Tower Marketplace, the local buses are called “TheBus” with an extensive network, there is a complimentary bus line to the Airport, called the “Wiki Wiki Shuttle and a taxi is easy and affordable to get as well.
Terminal Pier 2 is less than a mile south from Pier 10 and 11. As a rule a complimentary shuttle picks the passengers up and takes them to Aloha Tower Marketplace. In addition to the facilities mentioned above, there might also be dancers, performing traditional Hawaiian dances to welcome you in Honolulu. The terminal is less than a mile from Downtown Honolulu and 5.5 miles from the International Airport. There are convenient bus and train stops just outside of the terminal.
