Appreciate having the good health in order to do so. Highlights were:
- the Waimea Canyon, Kaui
- Hamela'uma'u crater with a huge, billowing plume of sulphur dioxide, Big Island
- an amazing Banyan Tree in Lahani, Maui - at first it looks like a dozen trees, but then we discovered everything is an offshoot from one, main tree
- ten days of fresh sea-air
- seasonal decorations aboard ship, including a complete gingerbread village.
