Crossing the Atlantic
Location: At Sea
We head out into the open Atlantic. This great ocean has long represented the unknown, with legends, mysteries, danger, and beauty all adding to its mystique through millennia.
As we draw further and further from the last outposts of land, the realisation of the immense, peaceful power of nature settles over everyone on board. Vast horizons surround us under constantly changing skies, and the sudden appearance of birds or marine life creates ripples of excitement. Enjoy superb food with new (or old) friends, take part in the many activities on offer, or soak away your cares in the Jacuzzi. But most of all, you can use the time at sea to unhook. Disconnect. Relax. These days are yours to enjoy.
The elements dance before us. Some days may seem grey with rain showers. Suddenly, the sun shines through. Clouds tumble and scatter, the sky changing from orange to red to violet; a photographer´s dream.
As we approach Belem, we enjoy the final sunset of our voyage and hold a Farewell gathering with the Captain, Officers and expedition team.
Our equator countdown will begin. We are changing hemispheres, after all, so we must ask permission from Neptune to cross the magic line. Everyone aboard can be baptized by King Neptune and become blessed with his special protection.
