Tui Tai off to Suva for slipway

The 8 weeks refit is over and it's time for Tui Tai's "annual medical" visit to the Suva ship slipway (well she is a vintage ship at 25 years old you know, birthday party on 19th April 2006 when she's 26!). She gets pulled out annually for a full check over and repaint and now is the perfect time. Departed Savusavu at 11am this morning and will arrive in Suva about 3am tomorrow morning.

The new Expedition Cabins, Staterooms and Grand Staterooms are receiving their finishing touches and final coat of varnish en-route today. All the new mirrors from Pearls Fiji are mounted and look awesome.

I just flew in to Suva this afternoon, Tige flew in on Monday, and the rest of the crew are on board. It'll be a full on team effort for the next 7 days, so maybe not much posting will be done.

We'll do the Tui Tai glamour photos when we relaunch next Saturday!
