This is a question where you will get only personal opinions and probably a number of them. I love the Hawaiian Islands and have been there twice on cruises and five times on land vacations. If you want to visit multiple islands a cruise is the way to do it. Doing it by air and land is less cost effective, if you want to do a number of activities while you are there. My personal favorite is to do a 10 or 12 day cruise from Hawaii, Vancouver or California so you can do a pre or post cruise on the islands to extend your stay. There are also longer options that eliminate the longer air travel.
If you have done Hawaii and also the Caribbean I would suggest trying a Southern Caribbean, if you have never done it before. It is something different and gives you a longer and different perspective of the Caribbean. The islands are more volcanic and less commercialized than the Western and Eastern islands. I find this my personal favorite.
