Re: Huh?

Oh and another Quebecois specialty that I like is that artery clogging, but oh so good concoction of fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds, Poutine. LOL.

Re: Huh?

Appetizing discussion. :) Here in Oklahoma, although it isn't a cruise destination, we have Indian Fry Bread. It's also another deep fried pastry similar to Bear Claws and Canadian Beaver Tails. ...

Re: Best snorkeling in Hawaii?

Heather, Molokini off the coast of Maui is great. Actually, I did a snorkeling tour through the Pacific Whale Foundation on Maui this June. It was supposed to include Molokini and the area off...

Re: Land tour or Cruise Hawaii

Carol, I was going through the same decision process last year and as much as I like to cruise, I decided that a land tour was the best for me. I spent 2 weeks on the Islands the last week of April...

Re: Big Island & Kauai

Oh, and I forgot. Early morning is usually best for a helicopter tour of Kauai. Clouds move inland about 11AM and you won't get views that are as good of places like Waimea Canyon. On the Big...

Re: We can't afford----- so is it alright if we -----???

I've never paid 200% either, Jody. I am going on my second HAL cruise and the others were Carnival and RCCL. On all 4, I have gone solo. I guess it is like everything else. It pays to know what...

Re: We can't afford----- so is it alright if we -----???

Re: You Might Have Been On Too Many Cruises If......
