Your cruise sounds like ours except we had rough seas all the way to Hawaii and all the way back too. Also the ship had to stop enroute to Hawaii so the Coast Guard could drop medicine for a gravely ill passenger. Like your cruise, we too had to turn around and go to Honolulu for a gravely ill passenger on our return trip. We didn't have anyone jump overboard but during a bus excursion, a man felt he was having a heart attack. We had to stop on the freeway shoulder so an ambulance could take him to the hospital. We did see him walking around on the ship later which we were extremely happy to see! Even though our cruise departed late (after midnight) and all the situations happened, we still had a wonderful time and met some of the nicest people we have ever met! We will someday do this cruise again but of course it will be on a different ship.
