My Next Cruise – Tahiti to Lima

As my departure date, 12 Feb 2015, for my next cruise is rapidly approaching, it is time to post a few details about it.

This will be my third cruise on Regent and second on board the RSS Mariner, and this cruise is a little different to my previous ones as the majority of days are at sea instead of in port, we visit 6 ports and have 10 sea days. The part of the Pacific Ocean that we will be visiting is very sparsely populated with islands and atolls, therefore lots of sea days.

I enjoy sea days, but they are not for everyone as I guess some people feel that they will get bored. I doubt I will have a chance to get bored as 4 days is the longest continuous period at sea on the cruise, which is a lot shorter than my longest continuous period at sea, an extremely monotonous 54 days, not something I would recommend.

The places I am looking forward to the most on the cruise are Easter Island and the Pitcairn Islands, also looking forward to an Aqua Safari in Bora Bora and to hopefully cycle around Fakarava (just need to find a good bike when we get there).

By the time I return to Singapore I would have circumnavigated the globe, a first for me, visited 8 countries (considering French Polynesia to be 1 country), 4 continents and crossed 3 oceans, Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Flying about 43,300 kms and Sailing approximately 8,700 kms for a total of around 52,000 kms . FYI, the circumference of the Earth is 40,075 kms. Can’t wait!
