Santa on Princess
 
As we were about to leave Maui last week on Sapphire Princess, who should come aboard on the last tender, pulled by reindeer and with hula girls dancing on its deck?

Yes, the guy in the red suit himself. He had gifts for all of the 500 children on board. The ship was beautifully decorated and we have decided that cruising for Christmas is probably our way to go!

Check out our trip report and pictures at Cruise to Hawaii for Christmas

But I was looking for that tender being pulled by the reindeer - I didn't see that picture.

Glad you had a nice cruise - but I am seriously wondering if they did bring in Santa on a tender - with or without hula girls. Is that part true or just a little embellishment to get us to look at your web site?

LOL. No, Paul, that is really true. They had two reindeer cut out of plywood mounted on the front of the tender, jolly old St. Nick waving through the window, and the three intrepid hula girls actually dancing in the tender! There were so many people crowded at the railing that sadly I was not able to get a good picture of it. Below is the best I could do. If you look closely you can see the reindeer on the left, and Santa and a hula elf in the center. It was lots of fun.

The day before we had not even been able to make port in Kaui because of winds. But on Christmas Day the wind was gone and the water was very smooth for the tendering operations.
