Today was a restful day at sea on National Geographic Orion. After an active agenda since our embarkation, most guests took advantage of a day at sea to catch up on journaling, working on photographs, artistic projects, lectures, hot tubbing, and even napping.

Our open bridge policy allows everyone to see how our amazing officers and deck team navigate through the seas. Sea days are a great time to visit the bridge as well as to watch for wildlife. Today was also the day to choose our top images to submit for the slideshow, which will help us remember the highlights of our adventure.

A wandering albatross, a pelagic bird with one of the widest wingspans on the planet, was seen as we began recap. It continued to fly gracefully behind National Geographic Orion as we headed to our gourmet dinner and concluded our evening.
