CRUISE AROUND NEW ZEALAND: An Unexpected Day at Sea

Due to high winds, the port of Touranga was closed so we set out for a slow sail to our next port of call, The Bay of Islands. The Solstice crew did a fine job of planning a daily schedule to accommodate all those folks who had planned to be ashore, from expanded food service to extra entertainment and activities.

We took advantage of the time to explore the ship and take pictures (what a surprise, us taking pictures!). Here’s a tour:
