Sea Day - Destination Noumea

Tuesday, 4 February 2014

Spectacular sunrise this morning, I spent 40 minutes and captured about 80 images of the ever-changing spectacle. I tried a number of different vantage points and I'm faced with the happy dilemma of trying to select for the 365 Project. Breakfast out of the way I posted my blog and my 365 Project images for the past 2 days.

Attended the Navigation At Sea Lecture in the theatre. The main points I remember is that the Sun Princes cost $300 million to build in 1995 and she was one of the largest cruise ships at the time.

Off to lunch at Verdi's Pizzeria on Deck 8 to see what they have to offer. The pizza was delicious, thin crisp crust and very tasty topping. We were one of the first to arrive and the service and delivery was very prompt. jenny went off to see a fashion show and I stayed to read. No surprise, I was fast asleep when she returned.

We had an invitation to the Captain's Circle Cocktail Party, dress was smart casual so it didn't appear to have the impact of previous events. One interesting number was that over 65% of the passengers were repeat cruisers. Some overachieving lady was on her 51st cruise. Lovely dinner again and afterwards we enjoyed a show in the Vista Lounge. A very funny man from Sydney had most of us laughing. I'd never heard of him, perhaps you have, his name's Darren Sanders.

Back to the cabin to finish this tale so that I can upload it tonight. Clocks go back one hour overnight and we're due to arrive in Noumea at 09:00 tomorrow,

This link should take you to today's images on my 365 Project http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-02-04
Cheers .. Tony
