At sea on the way to Rangiroa

February 4, 2017

Today we had a surprise from the Insignia. There  was an informal talk with Victor the General Manager, who addressed any and all questions about the missed ports, etc.  There are a lot of people complaining about it and he was really great with the explanations.  And he announced that there will be a goodwill celebration from 5 – 7 tonight with free drinks in all of the bars and venues.  The port cancellations are of course, nothing they can control, but as Victor said to us, if we are all not happy, they are out of a job.  The slogan fits – “Your world – Your Way”.

ATW hostess, Tricia, the celebration. Note the ankle bracelet that she made


Here is an unfinished version of what will be the Phillipines flag – another quilt square that Norm is doing!. 


Another win for me at the blackjack tournament – this time it was a last minute win against two of the regular men..  very exciting.

There was a session of the bracelet making, this time for all passengers, not just the around the world guests.  I made an ankle bracelet and because I helped June, the instructor, get the kits to everyone, she gave me an extra 3 kits!  

June, our Hawaiian artist.


More about this area of the world – which we have never visited before.  Tahiti and her islands make up the largest marine territory in the world, covering an area of 5.5 million square kilometers.  Each island has its own unique landscape from the green volcanic islands to the turquoise blue coral atolls.  We are looking forward to our snorkeling expeditions in a couple of days. The coral reefs and the range of fish are supposed to be quite spectacular.

Tomorrow is super bowl Sunday and things are gearing up here on the ship.  The 100 squares for the pool are all sold and a second hundred also almost sold it.  We will see if we win anything!

Before the game we will go out to a pearl farm and then to explore the island.  For those who are wondering, the weather has been wonderful, even though we had quite a loud thunderstorm this afternoon. The water is so beautiful and we are looking forward to the rest of the adventures.
