My husband and I are going on our belated honeymoon and want to do a cruise to Hawaii. He has cruised once with NCL--this is my first time. We're looking at the Radiance of the Seas on RCCL. It's more expensive than NCL, but for some reason we like it more from the pics and reviews. DH really enjoyed NCL, but I've read a lot of sketchy reviews.
We're looking at a 15 night on Radiance for $1929 or an 11 night on Pride of Aloha from $949. (with NCL, we will have to buy airline tickets. We can use FF miles for RCCL since it starts out of LA).
From the perspective of experienced cruisers, is that cost difference worth it or are those cruise lines and ships fairly comparable?
Thanks so much!
The Hawai'ian Islands are absolutely wonderful, but no match for the days at sea during the transit from Los Angeles. Those wonderfully romantic days at sea are well worth the difference in the fare!
