The fiery, fierce crust of Hawaii's volcanic landscape beckons this morning, but not before a brief stop at the southernmost bakery in the United States for a malasada or two perhaps.

This evening, celebrate a soul-stirring encounter with Hawaii, joining your travel companions for a lively Luau and Farewell dinner featuring tropical cocktails and the sounds of old Hawaii.
