    Day 46 ~ 16,200 Miles

    As it is turns out, 2020 may not be the best year to visit Asian ports. We were informed this afternoon that our itinerary has changed due to the continuing fear of the Coronavirus.

    Captain Aivo met with all passengers in a Town Hall style meeting in the theater to provide us with the changes and take questions. After Sydney our itinerary changes until we get back on schedule in Sri Lanka (basically March is different). We lose 5 ports in Australia and pick up 11 along the southern coast then face 7 days at sea before arriving in Sri Lanka. In addition to the scheduled ports in Australia, we will miss Bali, Surabaya, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand.

    While, yes, it is disappointing to miss some exciting destinations, I remain forever grateful to be cruising around the World in Cabin 887 on the RSSC Mariner and look forward to the sights to be seen and experiences to be had.
