Yep, all around us
as we sail east
The distance to the shore is important. Looks like for the next few sea days both before and after Adelaide, we will not be leaving Australian Waters. This is not relevant to me, but has a significant impact on the Casino. Running gambling in territorial waters falls apparently within the country and state regulations (and do we really want to have a discussion between Australia, West Australia, South Australia and Victoria? The ship would obviously lose, have to kick money into the kitty, and be involved in politics… not worth going there!)
And since the only time I every do anything in the casino is the free Spin to Win which occasionally nets me a free keychain or t-shirt I am not exactly wailing….
