Transit through Torres Strait

Today we continue our sea days on route to Airlie Beach, our next port. A Reef Pilot is on board and his first official duty is to pilot us through the Torres Strait which is a narrow and shallow passage.
Seas are a bit rough today with strong winds. 

As I sit in our stateroom looking out the balcony door to see the array of land masses that we pass, I am considering our Princess experience.

We have sailed Princess before on this ship and on the Grand Princess.
We have come to the conclusion that for us, overall, we prefer Royal Caribbean.
It is so hard to compare things as each cruise line has pros and cons but for our family, we think RCI offers the best overall experience.....
We will be at sea for one more day and will arrive in Airlie Beach on Sunday. We have booked an excursion there so hopefully we will have nice weather.
I will post a review after the excursion.
