Guest Lynda Gavigan Halttunen and her husband Don sent us several great posts from their 30-day South Pacific cruise on Westerdam. Enjoy “cruising” with them!
After a “catch-up day at sea” luckily we tendered into Rarotonga (one of the Cook Islands), a New Zealand protectorate. We were told that on the last cruise, the water was too rough to get off the ship. We took a $4 “clockwise” local bus tour of the island. The locals bury their dead in the front yard. There were churches of all denomination and no internet connection. Don loved this island and would love to return for an extended visit.
