I know what you mean by flights. We usually just drive to Seattle for the cruises there. We looked into a Hawaiian Land trip, but the flight $$$$$$ and the hotels have just gone way up. Sure looks like the cruise is the best bang for the buck.
With different deals we had going on we ended up with $600. onboard credit. On this trip we took the cheapest inside we could find. It was the last one mm 1943, Hal upgraded us to I 7072. I have not priced it out but it does seem like an upgrade. Our TA is going to cheap and see what it would cost to move to an OV from the assigned room.
HAL stood up on this cruise.

$600 OBC? That's amazing. I've never heard of anyone getting that much OBC. And on HAL! Good find.

Gary, we had three on Princess and I imagine HAL would be the same. They were: the first full day at sea; the first full day after leaving the Islands; and the next-to-last full day.

Hi Gary, we have done this cruise 9 times and can highly recommend it. We love the Zaandam and have nothing but good things to say about her.
We love to take the #55 Circle Island bus, for $2 you can take a 4 hour tour that circles the entire island. You can hop on and off at will by paying another $2. Or buy a day pass, they're great.
We also love Hanamau Bay for snorkeling. The entire beach and picnic area are no smoking even though they are outside. It makes for a wonderful day trip.
