Default We’re going cruising again!!

Last week we booked another cruise!

We are again back with Princess! This time we are going on the Sea Princess for 35 days!! (Yes 35 days!! ) in September 2013.

We enjoy our Tahitian Treasures cruise so much so back in July 2011 on the Pacific Pearl, we decided to do it all again!! , this time with Hawaii included!! and I have not been to Hawaii since I was 5 - 6 years old!!!

We are going to: Nuku'alofa, Tonga, Apia, Western Samoa, Honolulu, Hawaii, Kauai (Nawiliwili), Hawaii, Kona, Hawaii, Hilo, Hawaii, Maui (Lahaina), Hawaii, Papeete, French Polynesia (Not leaving Papeete till 4am), Moorea, French Polynesia, Bora Bora, French Polynesia, Pago Pago, American Samoa, Suva, Fiji and Isle of Pines, New Caledonia

We’re been to some of these places before on the Tahitian Treasures cruise, but a lot of them like Hawaii, Apia & Pago Pago are new to us so it should be a very interesting cruise.

This is also the first time that we are sailing as Elite with Princess.

I am looking forward to it!

CONGRATULATIONS! Sounds like a marvelous cruise indeed. It will make for a great LIVE report.

And the Sun-class ships are among my all-time favorite. Just the perfect size.

Have a GREAT cruise!!!

The Sea Princess is a nice smaller size ship but feels just as large as the Grand. Your cruise sounds wonderful. Enjoy!
