My parents are relatively inexperienced cruisers but are very interested in dojgn the next one "right". They are in their early 70s and in excellent health and very active. They would like to cruise to Hawaii and explore the islands via the cruise ship, preferably a one-way cruise to or from Hawaii and a flight back the other way. Money is not a major concern, but getting a great cruise experience and good value is. They especially don't like being nickel-and-domed to death for each little thing onboard the ship, and while their culinary tastes are not cutting edge, they do appreciate good food. The timeframe they are looking at is next fall when the weather starts turning in Chicago...Oct-Dec or so.
Any advice, recommendations and information is most appreciated!
