03d - 09Mar Amazon River, Brazil100 viewsWith up to 5 knots current you have to have the skills of doing the right things (seaman-ship) - in the right order when launching lifeboats into the water! This is not the time for a "screw-up"!! Our people again showed TOP performance!- Proud of being onboard this ship - as always! :)

05c - 11Mar Curua' Uno, Amazon river - Brazil100 viewsComing back in the afternoon - the boat drivers complained about the conditions along the ships side and after some silly attemps (lack of boat-handling) to get alongside and trying to tie up properly with insufficient ropes - uncontrolled - not communicating with our platform officers and crew - I decided to let them go and to get our own tender boats in the water to "rescue" our Guests and Crew from those boat-drivers boats....

05d - 11Mar Curua' Uno, Amazon river - Brazil1742 views"Rescue Operations" went absolutely flawless - thanks to all involved from the ship! More to say of course about this - but not enough space on my website. All in all - not a good experience to visit this port today.

07a - 13Mar At Sea - Atlantic Ocean141 viewsOur long time Seabourn Guest Mr. Arnold Goulston wanted to say something to the boys in the deck department. He invited them to deck no.7 - the Seabourn Square - and he made a speech of how proud he is to be on this ship with them - the cleanliness - their hard work - excellent tender drivers etc. It was very nice to hear you Mr. Goulston saying these nice words to the boys! Thank you very much! I couldn't agree more - what have happen lately included - you all have done a fantastic job! Congrats!
