      Today was a joke!! we didn't even get to port in Gisborne because we got stuck in a storm, and this is supposedly the most sunny place in NZ, like 300 days a year are sunny. Of course this would happen. So basically the day is wasted. I am ****** because I absolutely hate this ship and want to get off!!!

Ok, maybe the last one was legitimate-- But anyways, as I heard ...

      ... beautiful. We were lucky enough to have a cloudless day.

      We travelled from Gisborne to Tologa Bay - by far the most amazing beach and wharf around. It is the longest wharf in the southern hemisphere.

The restaurant’s walls rose so there was a nice constant breeze coming from the adjacent waterway. The televisions were tuned to a snooker tournament. ...
