Hawaii? Greek Cruise? Maybe I Need A New Idea!

Jump to last reply

Yes, I'm asking strangers!
This year my husband's business is closing over the week prior to July 4 and we have a "use it or loose" it week of vacation. I'm having a terrible time committing to anything.
A friend says I have vacation trauma as the last few have had issues.
My initial thoughts are either to go to Hawaii- probably Maui, maybe Kauai for about 10 nights or on a cruise of the Greek Islands.
I have access to good pricing on both these things.
I've never thought of myself as a cruise person, but the ship is Sea Dream I and that seems a little less oversize and gung ho than most. We were in Europe in March so the flight isn't something that excites me (we live in the SF Bay area).
Hawaii is easy, warm and familiar, but probably too familiar? It's hard to get excited!
I'd love to visit French Polynesia but the cost is prohibitive.
Bahia sounds interesting, but wrong time of year..
I'd greatly appreciate any thoughts or ideas. I am open to suggestions and don't want to sound like I'm whining. I'm just conflicted and want to spend my limited resources in the best way.
