A lovely portrait I captured of Azamara Journey Captain Johannes Tysse and wife Tonya onboard his vessel recently. It was one of those ‘stop right there’ moments when I caught them walking to dinner in the tropical Sunset light. Must say I was pretty chuffed when Captain Johanas changed his profile pic to this image the following day 👌🏼

Now that’s the way to start the day ... alfresco breakfast in the warm morning sun, overlooking the mesmerizing churn of the ships wake onboard the luxurious Azamara Journey.
At that moment life could not be more perfect 👌🏼 .

Tying up the last ship of the Australian Cruise Season in Sydney early this morning. @royalcaribbean Explorer of the Seas departs for Seattle later today, leaving just a handful of local cruise ships sailing our waters for the winter months ...
Until October Explorer OTS ⚓️ .

The Summer Cruise Season is almost over here in Australia and Sydney put on a cracking afternoon to see off Carnival Legend, which will depart in a couple of hours for the month long voyage across the Pacific to Vancouver, Canada via New Caledonia, Fiji, Tahiti and Hawaii.
Farewell Legend ... until October 😎

Over the bow of Azamara Journey cruising through the Whitsunday Islands of Australia.
Bit of an obscure angle this one, taken from the Starboard Bridge wing with a pole mounted Gopro extended forward and tilted back towards the bridge .... just for something different ✌🏻

After rounding the Northern most tip of Australia we headed West and literally chased Cyclone Marcus right across the Gulf of Carpentaria on approach to Darwin. Those 2 days at sea were surprisingly not too bumpy. Although for a small ship, Azamara Journey rides the swell very well. What this weather did do was provide some pretty cool and ever changing cloud formations, like this one early morning with a hot wind blowing up our Stern. As you can see the deck crew strapped everything down the night before in anticipation of the copping some pretty strong winds.

‘Boutique hotel at sea’ ... now that’s a phrase often thrown around in luxury cruise marketing.
Although when you overhear a British guest onboard Azamara Journey compare the ship’s elegant central atrium to the lobby of a famous Knightsbridge Hotel, then I guess in this case, it’s a pretty accurate analogy.
This homely space is the hub of the ship and it’s also the home of Journey’s social hub ... Mosaic Cafe, where you’ll frequently spot senior officers and the Captain himself enjoying a perfectly brewed espresso with passengers ☕️👌🏼

I absolutely love the moody late afternoon light in this ‘oil painting’ like image of Azamara Journey anchored in the Whitsunday Islands of Australia.
There’s many things I love about this ship actually .... First of all she looks and feels like a real ship with uncomplicated and classic lines. In fact all 8 of the ‘R’ class ship exude style (IMO). She also rides a rolling swell incredibly well for a small 30,000 ton vessel. No shuddering, creaks or groans. Just a gentle smooth roll to help send you off to sleep. Perfection 👌🏼

One major ‘itch list’ item that the world cruise guests onboard Azamara Journey were keen to tick off was snorkeling The Great Barrier Reef of Australia.
I jumped onboard the private Azamara tour from Cairns as an escort and to capture the moment. Nearly two hours on a high speed catamaran at 26 knots and we finally reached the sheltered reef about 50nm offshore.
It’s towards the end of stinger season so most chose to wear stinger suits that pretty much cover every inch of your body to avoid being stung by the deadly Box Jellyfish or it’s tiny cousin.
This photo was taken of a few first timers about to take the plunge off the dive platform.
Pretty cool watching their reactions when they took a glimpse of the underwater world for the first time.
In case you’re wondering, it was shot on a GoPro in a half dome water splitter. 👌🏼
