The two week cruise to Hawai'i is great, and the four days at sea are much better than six hours on an airplane each way!
As to time of year, you have to go when the ships operate on that route. Most of the ships that offer Hawai'i itineraries cruise to Alaska from May until September, so and several of these ships mix the cruises to Hawai'i with other itneraries such as Panama Canal or Mexican Riviera. Thus, you can book cruises to Hawai'i pretty much from October through April.
The weather in Hawai'i is pretty constant, so it really does not matter when in these months you go there.
