Those who are about to embark are about to drift off into a gentle slumber, filled with the dreams that will put one’s heart at rest, then stuff it with joy. Those who are about to disembark are sadly to awake to the reality that we had hoped to be forever forgotten. Thank you to the crew for instigating the dream, thank you to the ocean for creating the dream and thank you to Bintang for holding my hand throughout. You have all created something that will leave all holidays pale in comparison. Seven Seas is the standard, I pity the boat that tries to compete. See you next time Mr Turtle. Raja Ampat, February 2011.
