Hawaii - Cruise or Land (and air) Vacation
It seems sacrilegious to ask while Kuki & game are steaming towards Hawaii. But is a cruise the best way to see Hawaii for a first timer? Round trips from CA have four days at sea, each way + the obligatory stop in Ensenada. Would I be better served by biting the bullet and making that long flight to HI? Once in Honolulu, how easy is it to island hop?
(As a footnote: is it not practical to go three days HI to Cabo and then have that last sea day to CA?)
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
