I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I could take a cruise from Miami Florida port to Hawaii. I know it sounds silly but I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but am deathly afraid of flying or taking a train, is it possible to take a cruise or 2 different cruise lines to get to Hawaii from Florida? How would that work? Would I have to take a cruise from Florida to Mexico or California or something and then catch another cruiseline to Hawaii and then to get back find another cruiseline in California or Mexico to get me back to Florida? Or is there a way to take a cruise from Miami through the panama canal to California or something to gas up and then on to Hawaii (round trip)? Does any one possible have a clue as to how I would work this?
You'd have to talk to a TA, but I don't think it's possible.
I've been looking at a lot of repositioning cruises, cause they're cheaper. Many ships reposition from Florida to CA/Mexico then to HI, but then don't reposition back to FL until after the HI season is over.
You'd also be looking at astronomical costs. It might be better to rent a yacht.
Think about doubling whatever you do, you have to get back as well. i4 day panama canal , Miami or Ft Lauderdale to San Diego +11 day Ensenada to Hawaii then turn around and do the whole thing over again in reverse. 50 day cruise, , sounds good to me.
If a train scares you try renting a car with unlimited mileage and drive to the west coast. You'll have to pay the drop off charge but you might even be able to get out of this with some rental car companies. Also, the bus is an option, but Lord Have Mercy, I'd never ride a bus across country.
There are ships that go from Miami to L.A., or Seattle, or San Diego. That's no problem. Then from the west coast to Hawaii. That's no problem. Then you'd have to do a return trip and that can be a problem because you would be cruising from Miami to the west coast on a repositioning cruise. But, I'm confident it can be done if money is no object.
However, you posted you really wanted to see Hawaii. I've been to Hawaii several times and it is, IMHO, the most beautiful place in the world. If you have the resources I'd recommend spending at least 3 weeks there. And keep in mind, getting from island to island is usually a plane flight, that you won't do. I guess there are boat transports between the islands but I've never had a need to look into these.
It would be very difficult to do this round-trip without flying. The only way you could do it would be to do a Miami to San Diego/Ensenada repositioning cruise followed by Ensenada to Hawaii and then Hawaii to Vancouver followed by a one-way car rental back to Miami. You might also check into freigher travel for part or all of this. The freighter could get you back to Miami directly.
