Resilient Lady - March 2024

 In March I negotiated to perform a compass adjustment aboard Virgin Voyage's Resilient Lady in part exchange for the use of a passenger cabin between Melbourne and Sydney. She's a very different ship, not my cup of tea but others I know have enjoyed sailing aboard her. Nevertheless, it was a very enjoyable three days for me.

Hapag Lloyd's Europa 2 also at Station Pier.

My very modern, comfortable cabin.

Various photos from around the ship.

Nothing else could more clearly demonstrate that this ship is not aimed at me!

A startingly flamboyant cabaret show in the theatre. It was very funny and the punters all seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.

The ship anchoring at Athol Bight in Sydney Harbour. I'm supervising from my bunk!

I disembarked the ship by shore tender.
