January 8

Cruise News

After spending the day in a grid search pattern with the Grand Princess and cargo ship HORIZON RELIANT, the U.S. Coast Guard released the Star Princess so we could continue our westward journey toward Hawaii, but ordered the Grand to remain on scene to resume the search effort at first light tomorrow.

We had been heading westward for nearly 3 hours when the Coast Guard ordered us back on scene to rejoin the Grand and we will be searching again at first light Jan. 8.

Because of this unfortunate diversion, our cruise itinerary has so far been altered as follows: Jan 10 Hilo / Jan 11 Honolulu / Jan 12 Nawiliwili (Kuai) / and Jan 13 is yet to be determined, but it's between Kona on the Big Island, or LaHaina on Maui, both tender ports, then we'll be making a run for it to Ensenada, arriving there on Jan 18. Depending on how things go tomorrow (Jan 8) will determine if we will need to make further adjustments to our Hawaii visit.
