M603 / Part of World Cruise - Queen Mary 2. Remember your primary school geography class, or Erich von Daniken's "Chariots of the Gods" that referenced a strange place called Easter Island. What was not apparent then is that Easter Island is part of Chile, a spec 165SqKm in the ocean 3660Km west of South America in the Pacific Ocean. The iconic Moai statues are instantly recognised the world over.
We cruised along the southern shore and did not anchor, with binoculars we could see the statues and the dormant volcanic landscape. Awe inspiring scenery, great tall cliffs dropping straight into the sea, cinder cones of extinct volcanoes, large open paddocks, and small wooded tree areas, and several albatrosses that flew alongside the ship. Truly a memorable day, and a destination that would suggest a landing on the Island to explore these wonders up close.
