Still Sailing on the Sea of Bengal

Good Morning, this our third day at sea and I am gonna miss this when we do several “far western” ports before our return to our rack back to Singapore.

We were here yesterday ….

…. and here we are today – not the snail’s pace – 12 knots!

On the map you can see our next two ports; Trincomalee, and Hambantota, then we sail farther west to the Maldives.

I recently received an email from our son-in-law who was so impressed with the beauty of the Statendam when they visited us years ago, that he suggested that maybe I might wan to share some images of this beautiful lady. Thanks for the suggestion, I hope y’all enjoy the following:

Railing craftsmanship – kept sanded and varnished through it’s life.

Entrance to the main dining room – flowers freshened often.

We are seated on the far right – upper deck.

The forward stair case landings are graced with beautiful paintings by Captain card, and chronicle the development of the “name” Maasdam through the years.

Deck 5 entryway, usually the first “room” newly embarked passengers experience.

When passing by the Ocean Bar on Deck 8, this beautiful display of Chiully glassware boldly greets passers by.

Our spacious library and internet computers.

China display cases on deck 8 leading to dinner.

That’s it for now, tomorrow – a port day.
