... to the pier. It was an easy 10-minute walk, even with the luggage. Boy it was quite hot!
Boarding the ship was very smooth! The checkin was painless, nicely done. We had the welcome buffet on the 12th floor and our room was ready by 1pm. Oh our room was very nice and we liked it very much! Better than the Regent! Quite spacious, with 2 sitting areas, an ample walk-in closet, bath and shower, even a laptop! We’re very pleased!

Tomorrow will be another quiet day while we pack and get ready for our 4am start on Wednesday/Thursday morning. Our travel time in total is likely to be about 20 hours as we are scheduled to arrive in Adelaide at 9-45pm on Thursday night.

of all colours and sizes, moray eels (I saw the biggest one of these ever! It
terrified me!) and a whole manner of other creatures I wouldn’t even want to
hazard a guess at what they were.
Seeing these places has been incredible. I can imagine that
only a few people would ever have the means and the money to get to places like
