For 2012, I have rejected the Caribbean in favour of Hawaii. I think it has more of a wow factor. Awesome is reserved solely for the Grand Canyon
At this stage in the planning process, I intend to fly to HNL. I know a flight time of 24 hrs from Europe is long.
The debate is between a cruise or a land tour of the islands.
What would your advice be for a first time visitor to the islands? This trip is unlikely to be repeated as I have far too many other places I wish to visit. The length of the visit can be variable upto a month -is that too long? Bear in mind I am a bit of a history buff and not a shopper.
Thanks in advance
