We just booked on the Norwegian Star (NCL) for June of next year. It is a brand new ship that isn't even built yet, but debuts in Hawaii in Dec. 2001. It features free style cruising and carries 2000 passengers. We're hoping for a great trip. It is a 7 day cruise out of Honolulu.
We will be on the Radiance, 10night, in Oct. from Honolulu to Ensenada. I would be more than happy to report on the weather, and the itinerary upon my return. Also, the Rhapsody is leaving this Sunday from Ensenada to Honolulu, which would give you the spring weather, if you can hook up with anyone on that one to give you the scoop......
In the fall , the weather is nicer for a Vancouver to Hawaii or Hawaii to Ensenada. The weather in April or May in the Pacific is questionable to say the least. So a Ensenada to Hawaii or Hawaii to Vancouver could have some rough sea days.
