From Los Angeles, our special 23-day cruise across the Pacific aboard the Volendam was a life-changing adventure for a couple of oldies who thought they had done it all. Celebrating my 80th birthday aboard the ship in Honolulu was an indelible event that revitalized the soul, giving what was a tired body new life. After living out our dream and arriving in Sydney a day early, we had extra time to explore some of the harbour’s great views by both day and night. I’m afraid room will have to be found again for this pair of converted travelers very soon! – The Smeds
