Cruise to the Orinoco River

Travel & Vacation China
In December 2000 we took the MS Rotterdam, flagship of the Holland America fleet, on its maiden voyage up the Orinoco River in Venezuela.  Very few cruise ships had ever navigated the river.  And in addition to the up-river voyage, we touched on the islands of St. Lucia, Trinidad, and Martinique.  This was my first trip with the D30, and pictures of varying quality resulted (I was still climbing the camera's learning curve).  The very best, very few, are shown here.
