SOME SUNNY SOUTH SEA ISLAND CRUISE THIS TURNED OUT TO BE

Shooting on board a cruise ship that’s battened down the hatches in anticipation of a cyclone is not the most conducive environment to capturing promotional photographs of a south-sea island cruise.

From the moment we left, until  the morning we returned, we had nothing but rain and dark, brooding skies (adding salt to the wound, the minute the wharf lines were secured when we got back, the heavens parted and the sun came out. %%#@@!).

….As the pics from the previous blog entry indicate, it’s been a long few days.

Thankfully though, this five-day assignment is a pre-cursor to an 11 day cruise of Fiji’s Lau group of islands with the same cruise company so the Fat Lady hasn’t sung yet and we’ll get the chance to make up for it in April when the cyclone season should be well behind us.

And the next time, I’ll make sure no one on board shoots 500 albatrosses or does anything else to piss-off Poseidon.

In the meantime, here’s a couple of cute ones (below) from the shore visits that did make the cut.
