Default Hawaii - how is it?

How is a Hawaii cruise? We have done the Caribbean and are looking for something different. Will it feel like the Caribbean where every island is just another island? We are attracted to a sailing on either the Summit or Infinity this May because of the ship and five at sea days at the end.

Thanks for any help.

We cruised Hawaii last March on the Infinity. We also have cruised the Caribbean several times. Island hopping aside, there is no comparison. Hawaii is awesome. We either used Celebrity's tours or rented a car and did touring our way. Go for it and enjoy. The only negative for us was waiting for the motor coach and the time from San Diego Airport to Ensenada for the cruise departure.

Default Thanks...

Hawaii sounds good. Fortunately we are looking at the Hawaii - Vancouver itineraries and can avoid the bus transit. Thanks again for the information.

We are booked on the Summit for Hawaii--Vancouver, and are looking forward to our many, many trips to the islands. Each island is unique and cannot be com-
pared to the Caribean. While organized tours are good, a rental car is the best
way to really appreciate each island. After cruising on the inaugural of the Infinity,
we are looking forward to the Summit--and will take the cruise to Alaska after
Vancouver.

From one who has done land travel on the major Hawaiian islands, each has its own unique features, history, topography and sites to see; Volcano's, Mountains, Black Sand Beachs, road to Hana, etc. Since you are in the good ole USA, rent a car. We too are considering the Cruismates cruise May 13, 2001. Sounds like a great itinerary.

We are booked on the Infinity for 11-28-02 (Hawaii to Ensenada) and cannot wait. We plan to primarily rent cars on each island, plus do a helicopter excursion, probably on the Big Island.
