My name is Craig (54 yrs) My wife Natalie(48 yrs)
We'll be on our first cruise on 11/22/07 (Thanksgiving)
out of San Deigo.
We're both from the Big Island of Hawaii and just want some tips
on enjoying the Carnival Spirt on the
Mexican Riviera. Thank You
Can't wait. What to bring, clothing, etc.?
Hi and welcome. I lived windward side of Oahu for about 10 years and we travelled to the other islands. Which part of Hawaii do you live? We considered near Hilo some acerage for roosters we were raising but decided too much jungle and my b/f I lived with had family mostly Oahu, but he grew up on the Big Island so knew a lot of the history.
I really miss Hawaii, but too much da kine Budweiser at all the lauaus lol, and I decided I had to get away. Hard decision I admit, loved Hawaii. I do plan to get back some day.
You are close enough to do some cruising to Australia or New Zealand where Id love to cruise....have some online friends there.
I do think it rained every time I was near Hilo. I like the horse country on Big Island the best, it reminds me of Kentucky.
I lived near (about 3 miles) Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu, which everyone refers to here as PCC. We all thought it was terribly hoky, so its strange to read about it being such a major attraction to cruisers.
