Day 18 – 22nd January, Departure Tonga

Viking Funnel

We thoroughly enjoyed a very full day of touring Tonga, with Toni & Leni, returning to the ship about 16:30, all hot and sweaty. After very welcome showers, we watched departure from our balcony, then headed to dinner and the show.

Temperature: 26C/79F

Wind/Weather:  Light winds in port with occasional showers

Sunrise/Sunset:  06:16/19:27

Clox: No Change (Z+12)


Once clear of the reef we set WSW’ly courses at a speed of 11 kts


Today’s special meals:

  • Pool Grill (11:30 to 14:30) – Caesar Salad Station
  • World Cafe (18:00 to 21:00) – Tongan Pork Tacos

After a busy day of tours, we elected to have a quick dinner in the World Cafe (buffet).


Ella Monnery 2

After dinner we headed to the Theatre for tonight’s performance by Ella Monnery, who sang only Soul music. While she is a great singer, she only performed 1 genre of music, which just happens to be one of my least favourites. Many thought it was a great show, but wasn’t my preference.

Unfortunately, we missed Ella’s first show, so can’t comment on her selection of music for the other performance.

As another day closes, we bid you farewell, till tomorrow and hope for fair skies and following seas.

  1. Enjoy all your reports of the things you do and the service you receive in every section of the ship. It certainly beats any thing provided by P /O and Princess Douglas and Diane arrived back from their Cruise last night, had a great time but nothing compared to that provided by Viking.
