Cruising to Fjordland, New Zealand
1.5.18 - 1.6.18 68 °F
Our first two days have been spent at sea transiting southeast toward the west coast of the Southern Island of New Zealand. The first day was rather quiet and we enjoyed the comfort of our cabin.
On day two in the morning we had the standard cruise vegetable carving by three very talented Philipino chefs. In the space of a few minutes they created some very imaginative creatures!
The highlight of the day was learning the New Zealand National Rugby Team "All Black Haka". If you have seen the Kiwi's play, it is quite a show. The All Blacks have been doing a traditional Haka for about 100 years, with the current version the last 20 years ago. A Haka is a Mali tradition for just about every type of occasion....some are scripted, some spontaneous. It was a blast!
