from information received from personal sources, NCL will pull the last ship which does cruises of 7 days in Hawaii, citing mounting problems with Hawaiian govt agencies in Feb 09.
Furthur Princess is red-lining most stops in Hawaii due to the same problems.
You have to admire the forsight of Hawaiian agencies like Dept Of Natural Resources which in a recession seeks to raise costs restrict services.
This will leave cruises November thru April on Holland America, Celeb. Royal Carib. and possibly Carnival, all of which will be 15 to 18 day cruises with 5 days in Hawaii..... all from the west coast ports.
