Pacific Ocean

I am still sailing in the Pacific Ocean and it seems to never end. We are on day five of the eight days at sea until we reach Bora Bora.

The weather has calmed down, not so rough and the sunshine is coming out and heating up. Today it has been very windy, the photo below does not do it justice as if I had taken a photo of myself my hair was in the air!

You are probably wondering what I am doing to fill my days up. Now the weather has calmed down I was going to go back the gym, but I like to go when I get up at around 7.30am, but the gym is full!

Now, this cruise is full of people over 65, but they are a healthy lot, so the gym is out and cabin workouts are in! I could go later on in the day, but I lose the motivation later in the day. I like to have a routine as then I stick to it.

I then get ready and go and have breakfast in the buffet. I am studying Italian so I then study for 1-2 hours. Later on, I go for a walk around the ship, write this blog, sunbath, eat again, read, write emails, watch tv, go for afternoon tea (not every day), etc.

There are loads to do onboard, even on this tiny ship. There are fitness classes, lectures, bingo, movies, afternoon tea, happy hours, games, sing in a choir, spa, casino, shops, bars and a pool. So it is hard to get bored.

My next blog will be about beautiful Bora Bora, if you have any questions, please contact me at lucywilliamsglobal@gmail.com or comment on my Facebook page Lucy Williams Global or Instagram @lucywilliamsglobal. If there was anything you would like me to blog about please let me know.

Hello from the high seas! (1)

Welcome to my new blog! I will be sharing my travels from around the world while onbaord a cruise ship.

Currently, I am sailing across the Pacific Ocean down to Bora Bora, French Polynesia. It is taking eight days to get there and we are going through rough weather, so not pleasant if you get seasick!

Luckily, I do not suffer with it very often, as I have my sea legs after working onboard for ten years before I travelled with my husband.

If you do suffer or think you might, I recommend Sea-Band Wrist Band Drug Free Nausea Relief  I have used these and many of my friends that work onboard use them. I also used to wear them when I got car sick as a child.

The first segment of the cruise has changed the itinerary, as we were meant to go to Honolulu, Pago Pago and Nuku’alofa. The ship had to change the route due to the weather as there is currently a storm in the Pacific Ocean.

I’m happy to go to Bora Bora and Papeete instead, as Bora Bora is a paradise that you see on a postcard and Papeete is lovely and tropical when you leave the port area!

Then we go to Bay of Islands, New Zealand, Auckland, New Zealand and Sydney, Australia and lots of days at sea, 16 in total. The Bay of Islands is a new port for me so I am really looking forward to visiting it for the day.

The Bay of Islands is a new port for me so I am really looking forward to visiting it for the first time.

I joined the ship in Los Angeles and I flew over from London, so it was a very long flight (nearly 12 hours). I was very lucky and got three seats to myself, so thank you Virgin Atlantic!

I have to say Virgin does a good job when it comes to movie selection, as I never sleep on planes. But my top tip that I have never tried before, but worked!

When you get to your destination take a sea-sick tablet before you go to bed and you will sleep off your jet lag. Usually, it takes me a week to get into the time zone, but this worked a treat.

For the next few days at sea, I will be hopefully going to the gym when the weather calms down, as I don’t feel like falling off a machine or dropping a weight on my foot! So I’m watching what I eat! As it is too easy to eat all the yummy pastries and cakes!

I will keep you updated on my trip, if you have any questions, please contact me at lucywilliamsglobal@gmail.com or comment on my Facebook page Lucy Williams Global or Instagram @lucywilliamsglobal. I have already been asked how do I pack for a world cruise, so I will be blogging about that very soon.

Happy Travels
