Greetings from Fakarava…Again,
MERRY CHRISTMAS 2019!
We pulled into the lagoon at Fakarava only to be greeted by high winds, driving rain and rough water. However, we were still able to pick up Santa Claus and his reindeer so he could greet all the passengers on the ship; including 30 children onboard.
The Captain decided to sail on and pass up this stormed tossed atoll for a day at sea before the next stop at Nuka Hiva. No loss.
The ship is gaily decorated for the season with a Christmas tree in every venue and corner, holly wreaths and ribbons on every staircase railing, potted poinsettias everywhere and a huge ginger-bread village in the atrium.
We had a block cocktail party where all the passengers for each state and country gathered all over the ship to meet and greet. We attended a Caroling Sing-Along, had dinner and then went to the “A Very Merry Christmas” show put on the by cast of singers and dancers with Jaime and Dana, our dual Cruise Directors which was fabulously entertaining and memorable. Then we went to the 10:45PM Christmas Eve Church service, which was lovely.
I am sharing the photos I took as Vicki and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and healthy New Year!
Jud and Vicki
