We are first time cruisers. We have paid our deposits on our November cruise/air package. I just found the perfect non-stop flight with Hawaiian Air for $403.07 per person. What should I do? We are doing a 3 day add on so we can do some sight seeing. Connecting flights are not a big concern since we are leaving from the West coast. My concern with the NCL air is that we will end up with an early flight out on our last day. I would really prefer a late flight out so we can take advantage of sight seeing. I'm not clear on how the NCL premium air works. It sounds like I would be better off to book my own air than go with the premium service though. If I book our air myself I assume we will be out our air deposit amount.
Any advice or thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
Something else to think about - most flights from Hawaii back to the main land leave in the late afternoon/early evening because they are red eye flights. So....you wouldn't necessarily have an early flight on the way back.
