Is there any difference between a November week vs a December week in Maui?

We can stay either the first week in November or the first week in December.
I cant think there is much of a difference in climate, but there might be something we are not thinking of. Any opinions? Is either a better time slot to get a deal on airfare?

We have the two weeks reserved for points and need to make a decision on which to keep.

Thanks,
Kathleen

A Dec week may be expected to be wetter than a Nov week...
Our first Hawaii trim was in early Dec. We were a little disappointed that it had been raining for 2-1/2 days straight until we ran into a couple on their honeymoon and they had rain 6 of 7 days…

The Kihei area only gets a few inches of rainfall per year and I believe is considered desert, so I imagine one could go to one part of Maui or another to escape rain. December would be better for whale watching. It's also fun to enjoy the Christmas season in the Islands, so December might be a good choice.

I'd go in December because you'll have a better chance of seeing whales. We went 11/9-11/16/07 and we only saw a few whales in the distance. There should be more in early December and they're awesome.

Rental car rates, hotel rates, etc. should still be reasonable because high season doesn't start til the 3rd week of December.
