We took HAL's Island Discovery Tour, which was basically a panoramic drive. First we viewed the main sights and learned about the history & culture of the island. We drove through the main township of Avarua. We stopped was the National Museum and later traveled along the ancient Great Road of Toi. that circles the whole island. Next we visited Ngatangua Harbour, Avana Passage and the Seven Stones Monument. Later we viewed the oldest church on the island, Titikaveka Church

We were skirting a storm for most of the South Pacific part of the cruise. The wind was so bad the captain couldn't get the anchor to set even after several tries. He eventually decided to move on. Not much to see from the ship but the water looked about as rough as it was at Fanning Island. Once again it was probably a good thing. I only gave it 1 star because we didn't go ashore, not because it wouldn't have been an interesting place to see.
