Was going to mention the same thing. And, I would bet the resort has a lot more space to do so than a cruise ship.

Yes they do, and thanks all for the info on the cruise ship. I can use that in my argument when I contact Memeber Satisfaction. I just find it so odd that there can't be ONE spa tub for adults only.

I couldn't agree with you more!! One of the BEST things I look forward to the most about sailing on their cruise line are their adult pool and jacuzzis. LOVE THEM. And would give anything, absolutely anything for their resorts, namely Yacht and Beach Club jacuzzis, to do the same.

So now we are in a privately owned condo on the Big Island. Here are a couple of shots from the lanai of our unit.



Sunset from the lanai.

Yes, Kona side for another week. Our unit is right on the ocean, and the surfers use the beach below us. Great fun to watch them! Our drive to the Volcanoes yesterday was very wet. There were flash floods, and our main hike to the red lava area got rained out, but not until we got drenched. It was pretty tough to spend the whole rest of the day wet and cold, but we survived and managed to have a good time anyway. Now this afternoon we are going to do a whale watch tour, so off for our "four hour cruise"!

We spent 7 nights at Aulani at Thanksgiving. One bedroom #406 and will request the same room every time we return. Awesome location. Guess where my son's favorite place was? The infinity edge hot tub. Lol. Sorry. I'm pretty sure that one result of all the construction is an adults only pool and spa. I swear they told us that when we asked. Cannot wait to go back.

Nope, it's another kiddie pool area.

Okay, so I have to give a big plug for Neptune Charlie's ocean safari's whale watch tour! We had a fantastic time (even though I got miserably sea sick), and saw a lot of whales. Two of thehm came up to and went under our boat as they "played" with us. We didn't get the best shots. Between being sick and trying to shoot quickly, I managed to miss some of the best shots, but it was a great time anyway!

In this one you can actually see the whale's eye!


Not only was this fluke slap very near our boat, but you can also see his flipper under the water. It's the big white thing.


This was a more distant tail fluke pop.

Diane - Those are great pictures. I love the sunset and especially the whales. Sorry to hear you got seasick, but I am thinking it may have been worth it! Thanks so much for sharing your vacation with us.

BTW, in that shot where we saw the whales eye, I couldn't help think of Turtle Talk with Crush at Epcot. I was laughing and thinking of doing Dori's "whale call".

Yesterday we went to Pu'uhanau Ohanaunau National Park. It's a simple place, but always one of my favorites on the Big Island. It's the historic burial grounds of the Alii (kings), and also a "city of refuge" where people who broke the old Hawaiian "Kapus" could come to be forgiven.
