Now a 8-day port call in Honolulu staying on board ship with of of the creature comforts would indeed be the best of both worlds!
OMG, 8 days in Honolulu would drive me nuts. Thats a 2 to 3 day stay tops if you want to see most sites. Too commerical and the Waikiki beaches are very average. Take me to Maui or the big island and I am happy.
