Hawaii is pretty warm all year round making it an ideal cruising destination however the dry season is from April to October with temperatures rising up to the high 20s and early 30s in the daytime. There is very little rainfall in the summer months making it a great place to travel if you want to guarantee some sunshine. Many people however choose to take a chance and head to Hawaii when the weather is not as good do December to March cruises are popular with those from the Northern Hemisphere although the rainy season from November to March can catch many out. If you are travelling from the Southern Hemisphere, those summer months of June-August are great for some winter sun although it can get pretty busy at that time of year.
