We took six days to cross from Samoa to Nouméa. We had six engineers onboard from Gloston Engineering doing an extensive ship check. The results and recommendations that they provide will be used for the midlife refit that happens starting this November.
This morning we arrived in Nouméa. A really nice protected harbor. We busted out the unload of the next science party and are just waiting to clear customs so we can go ashore and explore (drink). Cheers!
(BTW: our internet will be even worse on the next cruise)
