Hope you're doing well. Just our opinion....We liked cruising around Hawaii alot because it was our first time to Hawaii and we got to see alot. We did a 2 day pre and 1 day post cruise hotel stay also thru Pleasant and that helped tremendous with our airfare. We got to see & experience 4 different islands and see which one we would want to come to visit on a land vacation. My friends are split between Kauai and Maui. We came back to visit Oahu because we have 3 different families we visited.
My brother and sister love cruising but prefer to visit Hawaii on land, island hopping every 2 or 3 days. They said you can see and do more which is true of any destination.
