  3. Island Princess
This was our 10th cruise. All on Princess. We recently returned from a 15 night cruise on the Island Princess from Los Angeles to Hawaii. I give this cruise 4 stars, since the ship was 5 stars and the weather was only 2 stars. We spent 10 days at sea since we couldn't get into Kauai due to the weather. We stopped in Hilo 73 degrees, Kona 73, Honolulu 75, Maui 78 and Ensenada around 68. Our days were partly to mostly cloudy with Maui being the best. The ship was great with the food, service, entertainment and room being almost outstanding. Our 2 two tours, the volcano and Thurston Lava tube in Hilo, and South Kona including the Painted Church and Place of Refuge were all enjoyable. We rented cars in both Honolulu and Maui. The main downfall to this cruise was the weather. Our sea days averaged 59-64 cloudy windy and moderate swells. We were glad to be back on land after being in the middle of the ocean for such a long period. I am glad not to be cruising again until April 2007.
