Day 44 – March 13 – Friday – Still offshore Rarotonga
Our third day with this view.
The Papeete passengers continued debarking by tender, and we watched occasional flights taking off from the little Rarotonga airport – big planes for such a little airport.
After all of them were off the ship, we set sail considerably less crowded, which was good since French Polynesia had not allowed us to pick up the provisions (food) that waited for us in Papeete.
Our next scheduled port, bypassing French Polynesia, was Kiritimati (Christmas Island) about 1,600 miles to our north – 3 days travel.
