Princess says they have never offered it according to an article I just read. Probably due to the liability.

You are asking about a cruise from 41 years ago. Do you mean the mv Acadia on a cruise in April 2016 or beyond? ss Acadia was scrapped in 1979.

The thing with cruises from southern California to Hawaii is that they are not plentiful and usually are part of a ship's repositioning. So, you don't have a lot of choices.

Customs & Border Protection can grant a waiver, or the cruise line had to pony up the fine which I think is $200 per passenger. Since the ship made an effort to comply they probably weren't fined.

If a booking has two names listed but only one person shows up at the pier, it is okay. They just record the other name as a "no show".
