Default hawaiian cruise?

We are going to Hawaii next year and are thinking of the end of January or March. We want to cruise on Pride of America or Pride of Aloha to see all the islands our first week and then we want to stay in Honolulu for a week.
Can anyone tell us what the weather is like at the end of January or should we wait until the last 2 weeks of March?
Any comments re: NCL cruise lines would be appreciated as well as recommended places to stay in Honolulu.
Thanks

Our last cruise was the NCL Star. We had a mini suite. We weren't sure about the freestyle cruising at first, after becoming accustomed to it we decided it was the most relaxing cruise experience we had ever had. No rushing to get ready for dinner, we went whenever we felt like it. We did miss eating with new friends at an assigned table, but we compensated for that by asking for the same waitress each night. We got to know her instead, wha a sweetie. The staff we all very warm and outgoing. The one thing I might miss about the Pride of America is the diversity of the crew. On the HI Island cruises that do not leave HI the crew is all American employee(Or at least that is my understanding of the agreement that was made with the cruise line.
We would gladly cruise with NCL again.

I lived in Hawaii for many years, yes the climate could change but I would suggest going in January. If I remember correctly the "rainy" season was between February and March. I do remember after all the partying on New Years Eve we'd head to the beach the next day. If you go to the site for Hawaii it should give you the average weather conditions for the year (most state sites have this feature).

I lived on Oahu 82-82 and 99-02 and the only time I remember as bad is in August when the trade winds tend to stop and the air is so heavy. It's always around 85 with occassional showers.

Thank you everyone for all the info this will certainly help us decide. Any other bits of info or any recommended "must see/do " would be greatly appreciated.

Of course you must see Pearl Harbor, and don't miss the USS Missouri...take a guided tour there, it's well worth the price. We climbed Diamond Head at sunrise and it was so beautiful. There is so much to do just on Oahu alone...you'll have a ball.
