Default Re: i want to see lava flowing into the water

Patriot belonged to a cruise line that went bankrupt not long after it started sailing.
Right now there is one cruise line , Norwegian, doing year round sailing in Hawaii and several others that cruise there mostly as repositioning cruises on the way to or from Alaska. Start with a good travel agent and let them know what you want.
One thing I can tell you, you may get to see lava flow into the water during an excursion
on the big island, but no cruise ship sails close enough to it to view it clearly from the ship.
Having done Hawaii by both cruise and "land" in the last few years I can tell you that you would probably get a lot more out of a ground based trip .
