Lyttelton and Christchurch

Early in the morning of January 20 the ship docked at Lyttelton Harbor which is about 10 kilometers from Christchurch. For those who wanted to see the city on their own, there were buses that shuttle back and forth from dockside every half hour. We were pre-booked for a city tour so we did not have to worry about taking the shuttle.

This is the ship's outdoor pool shown here very early in the morning
