With many of my family members and friends. we took off for Honolulu, Hawaii on this morning. It was a dark, chilly morning when my dad drove my mother, grandmother, and I to Charlotte Douglas International Airport. We met some more family members and friends at the airport and all boarded a large plane that took us to Honolulu, Hawaii. The plane ride was 10.5 hours long. After spending a night in Honolulu, we boarded our cruise ship, which took us to the different Hawaiian islands.
