The trip is in 4 years - just look at what how much the costs have risen in the last few years! From MI the flights tend to be more expensive than from either coast and the interislands flights have jumped up tremedously since there are fewer airlines flying those routes.
Even going the condo route- when I was there two years ago in Maui a dozen eggs ( at the local supermarket- not the touristy one! ) was app. $5.00 ba dozen, milk about $4.00 a gallon- I can't imagine what it is now!
She'll need a rental car for the 12 days - prices will definately be higher on those!
Cruise pricing has jumped up because of the cost of gas- plus NCL pulled out most of their ships from the Hawaii interisland routes and redeployed them to Europe.
At any rate I would certainly budget high - there is nothing wrong with coming home with some extra cash in your pocket than not being able to go because you didn't save enough!

Also airfare usually is less expensive from NYC than from Michigan!
daniel & Derek- for next year I wouldn't worry so much about the $7000 price tag - depending on how you like to vacation but it certainly can be done for less. Personally I'll probably not do a condo again- it was a pain having to grocery shop, cook and clean on vacation- I probably spent half of my time on the island doing that!! However we had two of my girls with me and also my Dad so it would be completely different for just two people.
I still say have them budget for alot and if the vacation comes in less great! But this way if prices do go up the way that they've been, they can still go!

Hawaii is expensive and specially Maui but if they do not have to pay for a hotel 10000 for air fare and food is high for a week IMO.
