We have not done NCLA, because I really don't like having to fly direct to Hawaii.
We have booked the Diamond Princess for 14 days from L.A. and back. I really like the days at sea, which are my favorite for really relaxing. We will have 4 days at sea going, 5 days at the Islands, and 4 days back which I will really love.
We leave Dec 3rd, 2007 on the Diamond Princess, which I have sailed before to Mexico. It's a beautiful ship.
If NCLA had a real L.A. to Hawaii cruise, they would have been our first choice.
