Our first cruise was to Hawaii. It was incredible and something we hope to do again. Ours was a 15 day, from L.A. return. The sea days are the best part in my opinion. However, since then we have been to Hawaii 4 times, all to places we stopped at. Enjoy.

I have not done the cruise to Hawaii yet, I was looking into to doing the 15 night in and out of Los Angeles this year until things all went down hill. I have been to Hawaii back in 1981 and I enjoyed it. I have done a couple of 14 day transatlantic cruises and I love the 5 days of sea days in a row. It is one of the most relaxing cruises I have done.

I have heard that in 2021 and 2022 Princess will be adding 5 ships to the west coast that will be doing the 15 night Hawaii and Alaska round trip out of Los Angeles and San Francisco. They will also be doing Mexico.

I will book Hawaii and Alaska out of L.A. after the pandemic is over.

Thank you ! That sounds good to me and what we are looking for.

That sound like what I want to do. Thanks !

Hawaii is on our bucket list. I am just hoping we will be able to do it.

Us too.

The Jones Act (also known as the Passenger Services Act) prohibits ships of Non-U.S registry from embarking and debarking guests at two different U.S ports. Such travel would constitute point-to-point transportation between two U.S ports, which is prohibited on foreign flagged ships.had my Alaska Hawaii cruise in September because of this reason be careful if you book back to back.

There are a few answers to the Jones Act issue.

1. The 1 cruise ship that does 7 night Hawaii cruises is USA flagged. NCL Pride of America

2. The 15 night round trip cruises from L.A. or S.F to Hawaii and back do have one port stop in Ensenada Mexico.

3. Lots of Cruises go from one US port and end in another US port, trick is they have to hit a non USA port. Like the Repositioning cruises from L.A. to Seattle have a port stop in Vancouver Canada. The West Coast cruises out of L.A. have a port stop in Baja Mexico.

We did the Celebrity Silhouette. Flew to Oahu, relaxing day and a half in port where we could come and go from ship without needing hotel. Stopping a couple days at the different islands. Stopped at both Kona and Hilo. We did have an interesting day as that’s when the volcano action escalated dramatically. Fellow cruisers got awesome shots looking down the volcano at the moment of eruption. That was my only complaint that despite the danger we were in, with several major earthquakes nearly knocking us off our feet, roads closing all around us due to lava fountains breaking out, our tour guide was not allowed to call it off early. Everywhere we went was under lava by the next day or two. There were a lot of locals wanting on our ship! Sea days added to the Hawaiian cultural experience as there were lei-making, ukulele and hula lessons. Returned to Vancouver BC to cover the Jones Act requirement. So nice not to have to fly back, and arrive home (Seattle area) rested. It’s a great way to get quick introduction to several islands in one trip. According to family and friends the NCL ship is a different experience than other cruises as it’s American staff has a different service ethic.

We have one scheduled for November. Aint happening, most likely, but they will repeat it Nov. 2021-Jan 2022. It is an 18 day RT from San Diego on HAL Koningsdam.
