Apia, Samoa

Samoa is a different country from American Samoa and this group of islands is just a short sail away. We found it to be quite a lot more developed than American Samoa, at leased based on our limited experience. We docked in a town called Apia, Samoa.

We took a walk from the ship to a nearby “beach” but it was a beach of dead coral, not sand, and therefore not suitable for swimming with kids. So we settled for a swing on their rope swing and later walked into town.

In town we tried to find a cafe to eat lunch in, but with tired and hungry children, couldn’t find anything remotely suitable so cabbed back to the ship for lunch and a peaceful afternoon on board the ship.

Back on board, the following day, the kids club were the only passengers to get a tour of the bridge. I sent Riley along with my iPhone so he could snap some photos. Here he is at the controls.
