Saga Pearl II blog - Captains' blogs

10th January, 2019

Another beautiful day here in Tenerife – I have never had such good weather for this time of year. With 2 great sea days down south as well, it has sure been a pleasure and our guests are loving it. With over one hundred newcomers this cruise it was great to welcome them all in our Newcomers Cocktail Party held on the 8th January as well.

Well we embarked our pilot at 7am this morning, with no wind and sunshine, what could be better. We also are the only cruise ship here today which is always a bonus. I decided to go for a walk at lunchtime and I had a coffee and sandwich in my favourite café around the corner in the town. I always bump into guests who are exploring ashore or shopping in the many shops here. Beautiful sunshine today and a bit of a breeze to keep you cool – perfect!

‘An Evening at the opera’ was also scheduled this time in Tenerife and was well attended to hear the wonderful music of the local orchestra. 11pm – all onboard and time to island hop to Gran Canaria tomorrow and the weather forecast is looking great.
