Tahanea " is known in British as a" flying atoll" (both the name of the island and the name of the island are recognized), is one of the line islands of the Pacific Ocean and part of Kiribati. With a distance of about 1,400 kilometers, Tabuaeran is one of the nearest regions to the islands of Hawaii.
It is possible that the Polynesians, who first set up at Hawai?i, used the tunnel as a transit station. Artefacts have been found indicating a possible early settlement by Polynesian populations - probably the Cook Islands or Tonga. First European to see Tabuaeran was the US master Betsy on June 11, 1798, captained by the US vessel Betsy, whose name it was after.
2 ] At that point, the Åtoll was deserted and, like all islands, had no real indigenous people. According to the story of Folk Whaling, it was frequented by whaling enthusiasts of various nations. It was placed under UK custody when it was frequented by W.H. Morshead at HMS Dido on 16 October 1855.
On March 15, 1888 Captain William Wiseman of the HMS Caroline officially attached him to Great Britain. The post office of the post office on the island of Faning was opened on 29 November 1902. 1939 the Atlas was integrated into the Gilbert and Ellice Islands colonies. The tabuaeran spielt in John Updike's Kurzgeschichte "The Blissed Man of Boston, My Grandmother's Thimble, and Banning Island".
Helping organisations responsible for helping to run community education, church and health services are Pacific CARE Missions and Pacific Island Aid. The Norwegian Cruise Line, whose vessels were stationed in Honolulu, used Tabuaeran as a monthly dock. Because of US-Bundesvorschriften, according to which vessels under the flag of a non -Swiss nation must call at a non-Swiss harbour, the vessels sailed to Tabuaeran.
In addition, it was cheaper for the airline to travel to a different destination than to travel to a different destination than to travel to a different destination to the ports as a result of the U.S. Passenger Vessel Services Act of 1886. During 2007, Norway Wind withdrew from the Norway cruising ship fleets and launched three vessels specifically for the Hawai?i service.
All these were vessels flying the US flag and therefore did not have to call at any international harbours. Pride of Hawai?i and Pride of America had seven-day departures, and the Pride of Aloha took over the 10 and 11-day departures, including Tabuaeran. Norwegian announces in autumn 2007 that the Pride will be re-flagged from Hawai?i and re-named Norwegian Jade and Sail Europe.
6 ] As a result of this amendment, Norwegian indicated that the Pride of Aloha and the Pride of America would operate seven-day cruise services on Hawai?i and would discontinue cruise services to Tabuaeran. NCL made the decision in early 2009 to have only the Pride of America in Hawaii, and the Pride of Aloha was moved.
Since then, however, he suffers. From January 2010 the Holland America Cruiseship Rotterdam, September 2011 Westerdam, April 2011 Volendam and January and February 2012 Seaborne Cruiseline are planning to visit the city. This will enable the islands to earn some money again with the help of luxury liner.
