Cruise Pictures

The following sections contain many pictures taken on the cruise by Tom Baird, Dick Buckner, Jan Grannemann, Jim Harmon, Warren Miller, Paul Vallely, and Sam Weiss.  They have been grouped by major activities and Ports of Call.  In order to allow people to view these pictures at their own tempo, and to be able to print copies of individual pictures, they are provided as a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.
