We were ready for a couple of days rest after two active days in Sydney. Leisure time spent at sea, smooth sailing to Cairns. With the news of problems on other cruises, I feel like we are dodging bullets. The rumor here is that due to the turmoil in Greece and Egypt, we may alter our itinerary, adding Istanbul to the list.
A Hong Kong tailor got on board in Sydney to sell custom suits to be delivered when we arrive in Hong Kong. I was measured and ordered one – couldn’t resist even though I only wear a suit to weddings and funerals these days.
