If seasickness is an issue for either of you, that might outweigh one’s reluctance to fly. Before the Norwegian Pride’s US registration, we did a 9-day cruise from Honolulu and spent 4 of those days at sea traveling at speed to-from a small Kiribati Atoll 1,100 miles to the South. It did that to satisfy the one non-US port requirement. The first 5 days were delightful and done at a leisurely pace between islands. The rest was a unique experience that involved tendering because there was no port and the offshore waters were so deep, anchoring was not possible. That small island visit was short because the ship had a schedule to keep. Normally I like days at sea. However, short of skirting a Hurricane on the Princess Grand in the Atlantic, that NCL 4 day dash South was the roughest “ride” I’ve ever seen over the entire four days. Cruisers have all seen down those long cabin access hallways which seem to stretch to infinity. Those pretty handrails are not there for decoration! And yes, I’ve seen those long hallways “bend” up and down such that only a few cabin doors could be alternately seen as our huge ship traveled up and down through monstrous waves. My recommendation would be FLY to Hawaii then enjoy all of the above at a leisurely pace without the crossing. If you’re set on a cruise, the US registered NCL ship would be a great option.
