  1. M.A. & Joe: I imagine all on board now know about Cyclone Winston and its impact on Fiji. Photos show the devastation. 185mph winds. Looks like you missed it by a week.
    Prominent weather writers such as Weather Underground’s Jeff Masters and Bob Henson, Slate’s Eric Holthaus, and Mashable’s Andrew Freedman headlined the storm as the strongest on record in the Southern Hemisphere.

    1. Hi Jim – there is a lot of mixed emotion on board about this cyclone; all are glad that our travel plans were not thrown into chaos, but very sad that Fiji was hit so very hard. At the same time, those of us who had never seen Fiji are thankful that we had the opportunity to see it in all its splendor.
      MA and Joe
