Default IP to Hawaii cruise 1/21/06

Just a few days home from this wonderful cruise. I would highly recommend it. The sea days at the beginning and end are very relaxing, and there are plenty of available activities.
The entertainment offerings are varied; thereare recent full length movies every day and repeated in the late evening; the production shows were very good. The individual performers were varied - comedians, magician, ventriloquist, etc. There are bingo games. The casino is available in sea days (closed while in Hawaiian waters due to Hawaiian laws). There are daytime lectures. We were very fortunate to have a gentleman who is a naturalist, very knowledgable about Hawaii, also about Pearl Harbor. He had a daily presentation that drew large crowds. If he happens to be on your cruise, be sure to see him; his name is Bob Bassa. There were ice carving demonstrations and pastry demos (the pastries were then served at lunch in the Horizon Court).
The port days were great. Never enough time, of course, to see it all, but the shore excursion were really good and were a nice introduction to Hawaii for us first-timers.
There is so much more that I haven't mentioned.
My cousin and I have every intention of repeating the cruise in 2008, because it was such a great experience.
