At sea an route to Noumea, New Caledonia

February 17, 2017

It’s not a great picture, but I succeeded in getting the blue starfish photo from my go pro.


Today was a fun sea day-first of all. the sun was out most of the day and the seas were calm. Perfect for the Insignia Country Fair, an event featuring games put on by the crew. 

There were booths set up on the pool deck, the band was playing and a good time was had by all.  The games lasted 45 minutes and you got tickets for events or games that you participated in. At the end, tickets were drawn for prizes.  We didn’t win any prizes but we had as much fun as the crew!

Here you had to sniff to determine which spice was in each container! Got all 5!

The butlers had a coin drop through water into a small glass. I got one out of five!

There were pearl rings and necklaces and you had to identify the 2 fakes. I got them!

Bar team had ring the bottle.. One out of 4.

A favorite dealer, Boyan, and the casino manager, Sri, conducted a high low game. I didn’t win.

Culinary team had whack a monkey 🐵. I did well here!


We have a young Brazilian couple on board with their two adorable children. Drielle is conducting Portuguese lessons on sea days!

Here they are and here is their son having fun at the Country Fair.

I had a hot stone massage scheduled for the afternoon.  The massage therapist, Ivica, started the massage and then he realized he forgot to plug in the hot stone pot, so he asked me if I would mind an extra 20 minutes of massage! I was already getting 80 minutes for the price of 50, so I ended up with 100 blissful massage minutes! I was like a wet noodle after that, so relaxed.  

We had dinner in Polo, the steak restaurant, with friends Alan and Beverly from Scottsdale then heard a New Zealand singer, Chris Powley.  Terrific.

Oh, and I can’t resist yet another wonderful sunset picture!
