Covers, painted black to imitate iron, could be screwed over the ports like deadlights on shipboard. The doors, one in either end, opened in two parts, being divided across the middle. The furniture consisted of two bedsteads of native wood with cocoa sennit laced across them to serve for mattresses. A couple of bunches of bananas hung from the roof. Against the wall hung the death certificate of the dead man, which, in such cases, must be the only proof that the death was due to natural causes, and not a crime. I copied the certificate.

In one room is a table with a Bible and other books lying on it, a home-made sofa covered with a mat; two corner shelves, spread with newspapers cut in points where they hang over, are filled with miscellaneous books; chests, a compass-box, and a water-monkey with its neck gone stand about.

A Hawaiian cruise is an excellent way to explore the Hawaiian Islands. It can also be the adventure of a lifetime as the traveler embarks on an unforgettable journey. This Hawaiian cruise travel guide does not attempt to relate information on the myriad of places to visit on the islands. What this guide does try to do is relate the author's experiences and the many different types of cruises that cruise companies operate. Cruise options for the Hawaiian Islands range from the big, majestic cruise ships with hundreds of passengers to smaller, more intimate boats. These smaller, "small ship" cruises offer a closer look at Hawaiian culture while sometimes visiting the smaller, uninhabited or sparsely inhabitant isles. Cruise options also include different ports of origins. Some begin on mainland United States or Mexico, and return to those ports. Others visit not only the Hawaiian Islands, but other Polynesian islands as well. The Hawaiian Chronicles - Our Hawaiian Adventures also covers most of the major cruise lines that offer Hawaiian cruises, both big ship and small ship. The author hopes you enjoy reading about his Hawaiian cruise adventure and uses it to help plan your own journey into paradise.
