To celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, Walt and I did an Alaskan cruise and a week in country visiting Denali National Park (where we had a fanastic overflight of Mt. McKinley) and went as far north as Fairbanks.

So to celebrate the beginning of our 30th year together, we are taking another trip - this time we're going down under!

We are cruising from Seattle south on Holland America's ms Oosterdam for a Pacific Cruise that will take us to Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, Hobart, Tasmania, Austalia, and end cruising up the coasts of the south and north islands of New Zealand.

I'll start this blog in a week when we board the ship in Seattle and we begin our epic tour. Hope you'll drop in and catch up with us during the cruise.

Ha!-forgot about the water canon (but you'll never forget). We promise no water canon, just waves as you go by (pun intended). So excited for you and looking forward to your blog. Love the down under pic!

Good Morning! Just checked for your ship on the Live Ships Map, but could not find you. I saw the Pearl & the Zuiderdam. I will check again after work. I hope you made it to Seattle yesterday without any delays. Quite a storm here! Bon Voyage! May you have smooth sailing, clear skies, rest and relaxation and see amazing sights around the glorious Pacific. Venture on Walt! Venture on Gisela!
