SUMMARY

As part of the "Scholarship@Sea Program" of Princess Cruise Lines I was a "Destination Lecturer" for twenty-five days on the Pacific Princess in May and June of 2005. My wife Sadie and I cruised from Honolulu (to Xingang, China) through World War II islands of the Pacific Theatre of Operations. Prior to that cruise, in December 2004 and January 2005, we were on the Tahitian Princess for twenty days where I provided lectures as we sailed through French Polynesia and to the Cook Islands. In April 2006 we fly to Australia where I will once again be providing lectures on the Pacific Princess on a twenty-one day cruise from Sydney to Osaka, Japan, through selected World War II islands.
