Hawaii Closed to Cruise Ships Until At Least January | Cruse Critic
Snorkeling in Hawaii
Small ship line UnCruise was to return to Hawaii this month, with its 36-passenger Safari Explorer spending the winter cruising between Molokai and Kona. Then came last-minute word of a "stipulation" that could change the line’s ability to operate at the dock in Molokai, cruise line officials said. As of Thursday, the company was still in negotiations with local authorities, while the season-launching Nov. 20 sailing was cancelled due to weather delays repositioning the ship across the Pacific Ocean.
