Hi all. Once again, Cheryl and I are off. This time we are both trying something new for us. Neither of us have ever been on a cruise ship, and this trip is a seven day cruise of the Hawaiian Islands. We figure, if we really don't like cruising, we can get off the boat and still be in Hawaii! Not a bad consolation prize.
We are spending the night tonight at the Home2 Suites at Newark Airport. Tomorrow morning we have a non-stop flight to Honolulu that leaves at 8:40 AM. We should be at the airport at around 6:30, hence staying at an airport hotel.
Our flight is scheduled to take just under 11 hours, arriving in Honolulu at 1:34 local time, which is 6 hours earlier than east coast time. We will spend a couple of days getting used to local time, then sail on Saturday.
