People here are speaking of one-way Hawaii cruises from LA. There are a number of cruise lines that regularly sail to Hawaii roundtrip from LA with a port stop in Ensenada. However, there are currently no one-way cruises from LA that I am aware of.

So, and we've all been over this before, but leaving LA, and stopping in Ensenada before heading on to Hawaii and ending there would work, right? Same with starting in Hawaii, and stopping in Ensenada on the way back to LA? Those would be one way trips to me because they don't end in the same place.

No foreign-flagged ship can travel from one US port (LA) to another US port (Honolulu) without making a DISTANT foreign port stop. Ensenada, Mexico isn't distant, and works only as the foreign port stop for roundtrip cruises from a US port. A one-way cruise to or from Hawaii would have to start or end in Mexico or Canada.

ETA - as Plaid Princess suggested in post #10 - some cruise lines (RCI and Celebrity, in particular) reposition between Hawaii and Australia in the spring and fall. The point is, one-way cruises to or from Hawaii have to start or end in a foreign country, or stop in a distant foreign port - like Fanning Island.

Got it...I think, lol. Thanks. I guess I don't understand what qualifies as "distant". Is it in terms of mileage from the port? For the RT Hawaii out of LA do they call Ensenada a "local" foreign port or something? I don't understand why it works for the RT and not the non-roundtrips.

Different laws apply to one-way cruises vs. roundtrip cruises, per the PVSA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passeng...es_Act_of_1886). Roundtrip cruises from a US port require only a foreign port stop - such as Ensenada. The Alaska cruises from Seattle stopped in Victoria, Canada.

Distant foreign port = not in North America. The Panama Canal cruises stop in South America or one of the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, or Curacao) as their distant foreign port. In 2012/2013 - DCL is stopping in Cartagena, Colombia.

Your 2nd suggestion needs to make a foreign port stop.

Yes, as long as the cruise is roundtrip from any of those CA ports.

My dream DCL cruise is...nothing they do now Seriously, we booked the Dream as a way to relax after going to WDW and that's about it. We looked at many other cruise lines, but only DCL fit our tight time frame.
I'd love to see a cruise to the Southern Caribbean, maybe 9-12 days long, out of NY or somewhere we can drive from Ontario, avoiding the usual St. Thomas, St Maartin and Nassau. How about Barbados, Guadeloupe, Aruba, Curacao, Colombia and Venezuela? Throw in Castaway Cay on the way down (and maybe on the way back!), and I'm in!

Yeah you could but that Saturday between the two is spent by leaving the ship, doing all that port stuff, then going back. Then that dreaded lifeboat drill twice.

They would also repeat the activities, where if its the whole Caribbean over 15 nights, they can add more variety.
