We cruised to Hawaii in March 08 with Diamond Princess. We had a wonderful holiday, but would have liked to stay longer in Hawaii. We had a day in Honolulu, Hilo, Kona, Maui and Nawilli (not sure on the spelling). So I think a cruise and stay maybe a good idea.
The simple way to do this, if you're not confident in planning this yourself, is speak to a cruise agent, tell them your requirements & let them put together some options. Use the Freephone number top right & they will give you help & advice......Wilba .
Hi there - we did hawaii in 2006, cruising from los angeles down to hawaii, it took about 4-5 days and we only had 5 days around the islands and then cruised back to los angeles, if we did it again we would fly to hawaii cruise round the islands and then have some days at a nice hotel, all the islands are nice but we especially liked maui, also pearl harbour is worth a visit if you like that sort of thing.
