In between Darwin and our next port of call, Hong Kong, we had our longest stretch at sea - 5 days! Part of me would be happy not to visits ports at all, and just go on a cruising cruise. You know, read novels, work on the tan, sip champagne, have a massage, get dressed up for dinner, play trivia, win (or not) at bingo, watch movies - sounds like a pretty good holiday to me!
|Sailing past islands of Indonesia|
|Bit more chess|
|Playing Bad Piggies whilst waiting for our next port lecture|
|Watching the world go by...|
|You have to play shuffleboard on board, don't you?|
|Breakfast by a glassy sea|
|Little afternoon storm|
|The Crossing the Equator ceremony is a big deal. My first time in the northern hemisphere!|
|There are these two guys who get paid to carve fruit and ice. Not hubby...|
|Islands near the Philippines. Lots of the crew were out on deck calling home on their mobiles/cells.|
|I'll call this my "sunset series"....|
After five days at sea, I think we were ready to do some serious exploring!
