This Honolulu sunrise was our first sighting of land after five days at sea on the MS Noordam. We’d sailed from Sydney originally and spent the first two weeks of our cruise traveling to and from New Zealand and then around the country. After our return to Sydney, we sailed to Honolulu with stops in New Caledonia, Fiji, and American Samoa.
It had been an exciting—and eventful—trip. We’d seen sights we might never see again, visited islands of lush beauty, and enjoyed wonderful food and service. I’d also spent a few days in quarantine when I was infected with the Australian flu during the first two weeks of the cruise. With Hawaii in sight, however, I was looking forward to spending time on Oahu and enjoying each morning’s Honolulu sunrise.
