Fun in Honolulu and on board the ship

Two of the landmarks of Honolulu, the clock tower near the port and the statute of King Kamehameha in downtown, were seen while on the bus tour that returned us to the ship.

Paulette at Germaines Luau honored Cathy Robnik. We were late to the luau because of road construction but they waited for our van to arrive before the luau began. Because we accompanied Cathy, we were given the best-reserved seatsat the luau. I felt like I was accompanying either royalty or a movie star. The hula dancers and the man who used lighted torches in his dance were accomplished performers.

On the ship, we were treated to a reserved table which is the largest one in the dining room so all fourteen of us could sit together for the two hour gourmet meals. l to r are Craig, Don & Suzy, Fran & Bill, Jack & Jeannie and my back. In the other picture are Sharon & Ron, Cathy & John and Laurette & Craig. Terry took the pictures.

If you didn't want the fancy lobster, escargot, lamb, prime rib, or deserts of Cherries Jublilee, Crepe Suzette or Baked Alaska; you could order steak and ice cream off the left side of the menu. When I asked the group what was the best part of the trip, they agreed that it was spending two hours together every night with good friends and good food.

Darlene and Terry --

What a great trip it must have been! We did a Hawaii visit several years ago, flew in and out. Your stories and pictures reminded us of the beauty of that island state. Thanks for bringing back some lovely memories!
