... This morning we sat next to a Swiss couple who were just finishing their meal (who turned out to be our next door cabin neighbours, Nicole and Tony), then a Canadian couple sat next to us, and we also enjoyed their company for breakfast. After breakfast we went back to the Colony Club where Cha Cha lessons were being taught by the dance teachers. The dance floor was crowded by the time we got there, but we found a space at the back where we tried to learn a ...
So today we arrive in Picton having diverted from our original port of Akaroa to avoid cyclone Pam currently blowing itself out down the east coast of NZ. The ship has been amazing in reorganising tours and even a port talk on TV for the new stop. The tours are mainly wineries or chocolates or mussel farms so we opt to look round town as on our last visit we only got off the Interislander ferry and got on the Tranzcoastal train ( well worth doing BTW).

Picton is another place I'd love to come back to and spend more time in. Unlike Abel Tasman
there appear to be budget accommodation options (other than camping) within Marlborough Sounds so I think it would be fun to come and stay at some of them and do some walking and maybe kayaking in the Sounds.
We are down to our last few days now and only have two more stops, Kaikoura and Christchurch.
