changes in plans due to weather, security, etc.

Just in case you wonder why there are no posts from Thursday Island, it’s because we couldn’t stop there on our way to Darwin.   The sea was a bit rough, so the tender boats could not safely ferry people to the island.

And plans for Bali and Shanghai have changed; we will have less time in each place.  In the case of Bali, some weather/tidal issues will have us land late.  In Shanghai, new security restrictions after the explosion in Tianjian mean that we have to stop at a foreign port in between stops in Shanghai and Tianjian, so we’ll lose a day in Shanghai.

So I guess travel plans on a ship are just as variable as anywhere else…
