Captain Paolo Ravera’s Midday Update

Aloha Everyone,

Daily midday update by Captain Paolo Ravera usually comes a little past 12:00 noon as passengers settled in for lunch at one of the restaurants. 

Today he explained about ocean currents. It is primarily a horizontal continuous movement of sea water based on salinity, wind, breaking waves and temperature. This interesting topic touched on the North Pacific Gyre, Equatorial Counter Current & Kuroshio Current. J.J. and I look forward to this daily briefing that is both scientific and intellectual.

Amy Tan is one of my favorite contemporary American female writers. Not finding quality reading materials in the Sapphire Princess’s onboard library, I reread her books during our Hawaiian Cruise.

Aloha -- Cathi
