Transfer to Melbourne

USA | Friday, 6 Jan 2017 | Views [218]

Another transfer day. I had planned on getting up and doing a bit of sightseeing. I wanted to go to Hyde Park. It’s only about 3 blocks from the hotel. However, when I looked outside it was pouring down rain. Heavier than yesterday. I decided to ... Read more >

Sydney Day 2

USA | Thursday, 5 Jan 2017 | Views [229]

Today I woke up to rain. First time it has disrupted activities on this trip. It rained on the ship, but that didn’t bother us and a couple of times it misted. And we did get soaked in Fiji, but that was when we were coming back to the ship so ... Read more >

Land Ho!

USA | Wednesday, 4 Jan 2017 | Views [184]

On land again. The ship docked around 6:00. I was awake since around 4:00. The seas were a bit rough last night and kept  ‘rockin the bed’. Kevin called at 6 to check on me and then came down a bit later to give me some cash for my Sydney ... Read more >

Administration note: I have uploaded the pictures for the blog. I still have to do some editing on the journal, but it is going to have to wait until I get back to Kevin’s apartment in Melbourne. This slow internet connection is still driving me ... Read more >

Last Day of the Cruise

USA | Tuesday, 3 Jan 2017 | Views [207]

The last day of the cruise. Sad to think that this portion of the vacation went so fast. Just as we were getting to know some of the other passengers it came to an end. However, Erick and I took high today at bridge. That’s the way to go out in ... Read more >

USA | Sunday, 1 Jan 2017 | Views [167]

Happy New Year. This was a lazy day for us all. Gary and Kevin met for breakfast in the Vista Dining Room. Joe joined me on the veranda for room service breakfast. It was fun to eat outside. The morning was nice, not too hot, not too windy. A very ... Read more >

Last Stop Suva, Fiji

USA | Saturday, 31 Dec 2016 | Views [220]

Today is the last day for Port Calls.  Suva, Fiji was an interesting city.  It’s the capital of Fiji and does not feel like a capital at all to me.  There is no ‘political excitement’ and everyone looks like they are ... Read more >

Day 16 Dravuni Island

USA | Friday, 30 Dec 2016 | Views [201]

This is our second stop in Fiji. We docked, well anchored, around 8:00 this morning at Dravuni Islands. The captain said that it is a bit tricky due to tall the reefs in the area. Usually the locals come out in their small motorboats and mark the edges ... Read more >

Sea Day - Day 14 of my trip

USA | Wednesday, 28 Dec 2016 | Views [188]

Finally, a Sea Day. Myself and the others have been looking forward to a day of rest. Not that the last 3 haven’t been relaxing. It’s just different when there is an ‘official sea day’ rather than a ‘not getting off the ... Read more >
