Trip Start-up

Cook Islands (2005 RTW trip)
"Bali Ha'i may call you,
Any night, any day,
In your heart, you'll hear it call you:
"Come away...Come away." 

-- lyrics of Bali Ha'i, from the musical "South Pacific"

The Supsics are off on another adventure at sea.  This time, we are crossing the Pacific Ocean on a repositioning cruise from Los Angeles to Sydney, Australia.  After we arrive in Sydney, we will renew our acquaintance with this vibrant city (we visited here when we went around the world in 2005).  We even have tickets to see the musical "South Pacific" at the renowned Sydney Opera House!  Then we fly to Auckland, N.Z. to renew another acquaintance with Frank's half sister and her husband, Diane and Mike (aka Di & Mi). 

Cook Islands (2005 RTW trip)

Here is a quick look at our itinerary:

Leave L.A. for our 21-night cruise on Holland America with port stops at:

     Hilo and Honolulu, Hawaii

     Pago Pago, American Samoa

     Suva, Fiji -- visit a traditional village and swim under a waterfall

     Port Vila, Vanuatu -- go on a Snorkel Safari

     Easo on the island of Lifou, New Caledonia

     Noumea, New Caledonia

Arrive in Sydney

Fly to Auckland, N.Z. to visit Di & Mi

Fly home (with an overnight in L.A. to break up the long flight)

We will post our trip reports and pictures as we can -- internet time on a ship is outrageously expensive, but we will do our best to keep you up to date.

Aloha, family & friends!

Frank & Anne
