Calm seas again this morning and another interesting sunrise. At 06:00 it was already hot and very humid. Usual routine, breakfast, prepare to go ashore, obtain a tender ticket and wait for the tender. The trip from the ship to the shore was over 40 minutes but there was hardly a splash as we sailed across the shallow bay.
The marina of Port Denarau is the most sophisticated and extensive facility we've encountered. There were shops catering to any and all the needs of tourists from clothing to high end jewellery and duty-free liquor. An extensive range of restaurants providing food from traditional Fijian to pizza and chicken burgers. We spent some time wandering the air conditioned comfort of the shops and watched a public performance by local worriers and young ladies.
After about two hours we'd seen enough and lined up for a tender to take us back to the ship. We were lucky to be assigned a local cruise boat that was much more comfortable than the ship's tenders. After a pleasant trip back to the ship we made our way to Deck 14 for lunch. Filled in a few hours reading and watching another questionable movie "World War Z". Back to the cabin to punch out a few words and sort through today's images.
Jenny's attending a religious service and will be a bit late for dinner. The dining room was lucky to be more than 60% occupied and service was very brisk. A quick stop at the on-board shop to spend some of the On Board Credit and back to the cabin where we decided to catch up on some reading and some sleep.
The ship is underway to our next stop at Dravuni Island tomorrow, another tendered port and we will go ashore even if just to look around. It is the last of four stops in Fiji.
