If you decide to get off at one place you will have to schedule 2 or 3 days extra, when I flew it last year the service was operated twice weekly on the entire route and once weekly without a stop at Kosrae.
I have done the whole trip in one day with a straight connection to NRT (tight!). If you have enough time I'd suggest to stay a day in GUM, and I am sure one stop in Micronesia or Marshall Islands is a unique experience. I was unfortunately too time constrained last year but will certainly come back to stay a couple of days.

I lived on Majuro for 3 months... it was an incredible time. The Marshallese people are the nicest on earth. Head out to the outer islands on the Majuro Atoll or head out to Laura Beach. Its just a very cool culture.

Quoting Hawaiian763 (Reply 10): It all depends on what day of travel you selected, couldn't find anything for this month (not sure if anyone else has found something), but found that it operates on Monday's and Fridays in August.
made yesterday a reservation for October and yes looks like that it is also operating on mondays and fridays in october...
problem will be that its basically impossiblle (cost and time wise) for me to squeeze in a stop on one of the islands... so it looks like the only stop overs on the complete journey will be HNL (for 2 nights) GUM (for 2 nights) and NRT (for 3 nights).

i did it 3 weeks ago and was an unforgettable flight and very long too.
The 738 was without PTV so even if i was in business it was very very long but i saw incredible islands from the air and the stops where i went down to take a break from the seat were interesting.
I slept at the end in Guam and was a very nice place to visit
