Status: Day 72 – Docked, Honolulu, Hawaii.
Notes: A very special day – I celebrated my sixtieth birthday today! I went on a special tour in the morning which took me to Waikiki beach, where I walked for a while until my tour boat was ready. The tour boat then took me out to a submarine, where I and around thirty or so others went on board and we dived to around one hundred feet below the surface. The views were amazing, the water was extremely clear, it was very special. We then surfaced, and the tour boat returned us to shore. Whilst on the tour boat, some of us saw a whale as it surfaced – I managed to get a photo of it, although it was quite a distance away! On the way back to the ship I stopped off at the Ala Moana shopping centre and did some retail therapy, including a visit to the Apple store! I returned to the ship and in the evening, had a lovely meal in one of the specialist restaurants on board. I was tired by the end of the day, but it had been a lovely birthday!
