Default Mother and Stepfather expressing interest in Hawaiian cruise

My Mother and Stepfather have expressed an interest in taking a cruise to Hawaii instead of doing the timeshare thing. Iíve done some digging and so far it seams that there is basically three players involved NCL, Princess, and Celebrity. These folks have never been on a cruise before so I feel obligated to make sure they take the right one and have a positive experience. Iím a veteran of six cruises so I know how the game is played.

Iím hesitant to recommend NCL because of the whole open seating thing. Theyíre people persons and I think they would enjoy a more structured arraignment. The endless flight from the east coast to Hawaii would also suck a lot of fun from the trip I think. Princess and Celebrity do the LA-LA thing but Iím concerned that being their first cruise it may be a bit overwhelming with all the days at sea and the possibility of rough weather out of LA and back. The Celebrity ship is a little smaller then Princess and it may do the bob and weave routine more. The larger Princess ship may have more stuff to do and explore during the days at sea.

Of the three Iím leaning towards the Princess one maybe even suggesting the cruisemates cruise because of the excellent pricing.

Iíd like some thoughts/recommendations.

The big advantage of the roundtrip LA-LA is the no flying, which a lot of people on the East Coast are praising for our Cruisemates sailing. You are at least looking at 11 days, otherwise, from what I recall, unless you go NCL.
