roothy123 Posted September 26, 2013 #1 Share Posted September 26, 2013 I am considering a Hawaiian cruise and have lots of beginner questions: I'm really into photography, nature, beauty, culture and sightseeing versus lying on a beach. Which islands might be more desirable for me? If anyone has cruised on more than one different line, did you have a favorite? We have been really spoiled by an excellent but rather expensive cruise line, so I know I won't be absolutely wild about any other line, however, we want to choose something that is OK. We're on the old side, but don't like stuffiness, formalities, and such, but don't care if the entertainment at night is limited. We don't drink much but do enjoy good food. I'm leaning toward POA because we'd prefer to keep the trip fairly short, but would certainly consider one of the other ships, as that 10 hour flight from the east coast to Honolulu may not be as nice as cruising there from the West Coast. Our budget is a little on the low side, but we really don't care about having a balcony or suite. In the past we've been happy in inside cabins, but I notice POA's are really small, so I would probably not go for an inside. Are the obstructed ocean views bad? I love looking outside. About how much does a typical day's excursion cost on each island? How much time should be alloted for Honolulu, assuming I take POA, which basically would start and end there with not much time to see the city/island? I notice there is a good amount of rain in Hawaii in Jan. and Feb. compared to April, May and June. Has anyone visited in Jan./Feb, and if so, what was the weather like? Monthly average is, I think, 3 inches in Feb., which doesn't sound too bad, but is that little spits of rain, then it clears up, or what am I likely to expect then? Any information you can give me would be appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
