* Costco Travel always seems to have special Hawaii travel deals. See this page to search for deals. One of the current Costco special offers that we think is an especially good value is a five-night stay at the newly refurbished Hyatt Regency Maui including daily breakfast buffet for two, rental car and two-for-one admission to their luau from $739 per person based on double occupancy. See all the details here.

* As promised, we reviewed the changes to the advance ticketing process for touring the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor. The difference is that the NPS has reduced the number of advance tickets from approximately 1,000 per day to 300. Also, the advance ticket purchasing time window changed from up to three months to just one day. Free tickets to walk-in visitors will continue to be distributed on a daily basis. We’ve updated this ticketing change post with the recent changes.
