Stuff on the Ship

Stuff on the Ship!

This page will be a series of things that have happened on the ship. I am not sure where I should put them all so I am going to lump them all together.. except for the Dessert Extravaganza, which I will post later (haven’t put it together yet!)

1. We saw a 80% eclipse while on this voyage. On the flight out to Seattle to catch the ship, I sat next to a couple who told me that there would be a total eclipse in Australia about the time we would be there and it was. If we would have been further North we would have had a total eclipse but since we were on our way to the Bay of Islands and heading in the right direction we got pretty damn close and it was amazing. Unfortunately, we couldn’t photograph it.. I tried to do it with the glasses over the lens but that didn’t work. but we all looked pretty funny lying in the sun with those glasses on. Almost like that iconic photo of people at a drive in watching a 3D movie.

Here is a photo of the sun directly from the camera without the glasses.

This is a photo of the reflection of the inside of the glasses. Seems that the reflection of the camera is what came out.. Silly!

2. We had 2 celebrity chefs on the ship.. One had dinner with us (can you guess who she is? She has been on Iron Chef, Top Chef and has a restaurant in Aspen, CO)

and the other owns his own Michelin star  restaurant in Stowe Vermont. (Michael’s on the Hill). I so loved his attitude for cooking that I took his class and was impressed.

3. The flowers on the ship are beyond words. There is a couple from Norway that work on this ship, and the flower arrangements are like nothing you have ever seen and they never repeat themselves. They incorporate items that they purchase in the ports into the arrangements.

    OYE, not from Norway but from Holland. They are a married couple Ed & Clarisa born and living in Holland, takes many years of schooling to become that skilled.
