We'll be leavening tomorrow from LA on our 15 day Hawaiian cruise aboard the Diamond Princess. I'll try and provide some updates from time to time & answer any questions. (No criticism of my spelling please.) The weather looks good so far & should provide a decent internet connection which is hard to get in the Pacific at times.

Bon voyage, Rich! I look forward to your onboard reports. Diamond Princess is among my favorite ships, so it will be nice to "tag along" on your cruise.

We've got a long day ahead of us tomorrow- Up at 3 AM for a 6 AM flight. Get to LA around noon. The only thing I hate is getting to the terminal at the height of the busy hour. Last year the wait was 1 1/2 hours to board the ship (Island Princess). Hopefully this year on the Diamond it'll be better.

Hi All, The Internet conncetions on the Diamond have been painfully slow for some reason so I won't be posting as much as last year. The weather has been cool (not cold) but has warmed up in the last 2 days. Still not many swimmers (only kids & people fron the UK) Bring long pants. It's been a smooth cruise & I haven heard of many people becomming seasick. Food is great (although not as good a the Caribbean P. The guest speaker isn't as entertaining as last year's Bob Basso & dosen't concentrate only on Hawaiian topics.
We'll be in Hilo tomorrow at 11 AM so the air temp does seem to be increasing somewhat.
Turkey Day- Happy thanksgiving. First football game is a 7 AM our time.

Rich, Thanks for taking the time to share with us. We're counting the days to get on as you get off. Enjoy it all and I'm packing warm clothes for the crossings. Maybe we'll meet up with Richard and Mary, fellow New Mexicans!
