I too would consider a more upscale cruise line which may even cost you less. Look up Vacationstogo.com under Hawaii/dates. Surprisingly, a bunch are out. Check out the Princess 15N RTs out of CA which will not need costly air. Ruby an excellent ship. Celebrity has both Solstice and Millie going. I am on Solstice relo from Vancouver to Honolulu this Fall, more port days, only one flight back.
