Ok, that was a bust. We get on the ship and have our orientation and then…..nothing. An announcement comes on the intercom that we are delayed by a day because supplies were late getting to the ship. Unfortunate but we are certainly not uncomfortable and the itinerary will change slightly. Moving on, there is nothing that can be done so sit back and enjoy the day.
The next day, as promised we are off on the and leave the harbour for the start of the cruise north through the Timor Sea to the Island of New Guinea in Indonesia. It’s a long trip that will take a full day. There is enough to do on the ship, including getting rid of jet lag and everyone is in good spirits.
