If you guessed Hawaii, you are right! The Star Princess visited Hilo, Kauai, Honolulu and Lahaina. It was a very relaxing, fun cruise.

While we were on the ship, I wasn’t able to work in the blog, but did save links to Friday Family History Finds that I have decided are interesting enough to share in a bonus edition today.
