Default WW 2 Pacific Theater

My DH is an avid history buff with his main interest being the ships and battles of WW 2.
I have done a bit of research with the result being guided tours of 17 (average) days with the price tag of around 10k pp.
A bit over our budget.
Can anyone steer me to a cruise line, preferably Pacific based, that I could use to piece together some sort of history rich vacation?

A few years ago one of the cruise lines did a Islands of ww2 . I think it started in at Sanfransico and went to Hawaii and then 10 major battle islands and ended in Japan 18 day cruise . I really regret not doing that. Its the only one ive seen. The ship was full so I couldnt get a room so Im surprised no one has done another . Id do it CARL

I assume you've looked at www.miltours.com and that's one of the places that's too expensive? Their site seems to be down tonight.

I would be interested in that too -- my father-in-law teaches in that area, and we're all interested.

I know when we did a local tour on Oahu they mentioned that the veterans were getting too old to travel with their families and so business was down.

You might contact the National WW2 Museum in New Orleans. They might be able to give you some leads

It was a Princess cruise called The Islands of the Pacific Theater. Started in Hawaii and ended in Japan. Reasonably priced but I haven't seen it offered in at least five years, maybe more. I would jump on it if offered again.
