As you may already know the Pride of Hawaii has left Hawaii, leaving you a choice of the 2 NCL ships that cruise the islands. The Pride of Aloha also goes to Fanning Island, so it is a 10 day cruise & include 2 days at sea. The Pride of America is the 7 day cruise going to all the Hawaiian islands, starting & returning to Honolulu. I've been on a couple other cruises & just returned from the POA one in Dec & it was EXCELLENT. So if you read some reviews about their being problems, ignore them. We were very surprised at how wonderful everything was & all the passengers we talked to felt the same way. The islands are all special in their own way with so much to do. Don't forget to spend some time on Oahu before or after your cruise too.
