29.03.2014 - 29.03.2014
Dawn broke as we sailed between islands in the Indonesian Archipelago, the humidity was high and haze covered the horizon. The sunrise painted layers along the horizon. Enjoyed our breakfast on Deck 9 and snapped some images of the event. After breakfast Jenny went off to Tai Chi and I attended the Port Lecture on Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Looks like there will be many surprises in store for me.
Spent an interesting hour at the Future Cruises Lecture where Tiffanie provided an insight to the options available in Alaska, covering the many Land & Sea packages. It was heartening to find that the package we've booked is one of the best available -lucky !!
After lunch went to the Cabaret Lounge to see what the on-board photographers had produced in a DVD for Komodo Island. They managed to capture a number of scenes that we hadn't seen. They also cut and pasted parts of their images repeatedly through the 30 minute show. A very professional product in just 24 hours. We stayed in the Lounge for the Passenger Talent Show. The six acts varied from quite ordinary to semi professional polished performances. Some people have an inflated opinion of their talent, I'd be embarrassed to get up there.
Next in the Lounge was this afternoon's movie. The movie "Gravity" stared George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. An unlikely story line but great effects and 'space' scenery.
Super quick service for dinner tonight and we're not attending tonight's show so will have plenty of time to upload images and this blog.
Clocks back another hour as we continue to sail towards the West coast of Borneo.
That's about it for today with three more sea days ahead. Meanwhile if you want to see a photo of today's sunrise you can always follow this link which should take you to today's image on my 365 Project http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-03-29
