A friend of mine posted this it's more appropriate on a US site so if anyone can help??
" Hawaiian Cruise. Has anybody done one of these, and have any recommendations. We want to fly out (sadly can't go from Southampton UK) to San Fran, Los Angeles or Vancouver, stay a few days, then take a cruise dedicated to Hawaii, and hopefully stay in Honolulu at the end for a few days, then fly back. Thinking of April-July 2014. Any suggestions.''
Some answer questions...I also question answers
Celebrity Solstice, but you'll have to do it the other way around. Honolulu to Vancouver, end of April 2014.
Because of the PVSA you'll have to get a one way that starts or ends out of the US. We're doing Solstice this coming April the same way. I would definitely recommend doing a one way so you can have days in Hawaii. RCL's Rhapsody and Radiance should be doing the same route.
If you want Vancouver to Honolulu, you'd have to go in September.

My friend will be flying from the UK to do it so I don't suppose it matters where it starts?
Hawaii is another 6 hour (ish) flight from Vancouver, so as long as they're ok with a the long flight at the beginning of the trip, then all should be good. If you mean being from the UK exempts them from any PVSA rules, it doesn't - you won't find any one way Hawaii Cruises leaving from the US Westcoast.
