For Cruisers Who Prefer Flippers to Stilettos

By Jocelyn Pride, Cruise Passenger

Mother Nature's orchestra is playing. Low melodic cymbal-like grunts and groans suddenly change to piercing shrieks higher than the trill of a piccolo. It's hauntingly beautiful and strangely restful. I'm being lulled to sleep by a whale. 

Hawaii is the breeding waters for Northern Hemisphere humpbacks. Listening to whale song puts a different spin on "nightly entertainment". The inbuilt hydrophone hooked up to the TV/DVD sond system in each of the 18 snug but elegent cabins on board the Safari Explorer is all part of Un-Cruise Adventures' "unexpected encounters" promise.
