We spent the last two days of our cruise in Kauai. We decided to lay low and do some research since we will be coming back to this island for four days after the cruise.  From our short walks, views from the ship, conversations with other passengers, and our research findings we are excited to explore this island further.

We took a few walks to check out the area surrounding the harbor. One of our stops was a scenic overlook of Menehune Fishpond about a mile inland.  This ancient  fishpond is thought to be over 1000 years old.

Cruising by the Napali coast

One of the must see areas of Kauai is the Napali coast.  As we sailed off into the sunset on the last night of the cruise, we floated by the coast for some photo opportunities.  There were several whales frolicking in the surf which added to the atmosphere.  We plan on doing some hiking along this coast when we get back.

We met some great people during our cruise.  We had fun each evening meeting up in the saloon for happy hour with Michelle our favorite bartender.
