Unexpected Sea Day

February 9, 2017 Paul Groves

Day 35 of 111. Saipan, Mariana Islands

No stop in Saipan today. The seas are too choppy to make a safe stop at Saipan, so we are simply moving on to Osaka, Japan. The staff here on board regrouped smoothly and there are classes and lectures to attend. We were able to attend a cooking demonstration with Chef Bertrand. Butternut Squash Risotto and Spinach Artichoke Dip with lots of cheese. Yum. I’m very pleased and impressed with how hard everyone works to keep things flowing. Those travelers with a lot of experience simply take missing a port in stride because this happens at least once during a trip.
