|Our ship for the week of May 10 through May 17 was the National Geographic Orion. The view of the ship we saw|
most often was from the zodiac boats that took us to all of our excursions to the islands of French Polynesia.
|The most exciting navigation on the ship was the passage through several narrow gaps between islands on remote|
atolls, where the sea is rushing into or out of the lagoon, and there's only a very narrow channel.

rooms and food service. Heidi's biography HERE.
|The ship's lounge has rather distracting mirrors on the ceiling.|
|We rarely had time to enjoy a moment on the top deck. This was the|
last day -- we had just returned our snorkel gear.
|A very important functional apparatus: the anchor!|
