Arrival at Suva, Viti Levu, Fiji

Tutuila Island

This is the main island of American Samoa. It's about 18 miles long, which is too long to see the entire length among the low-lying clouds from the distance needed to get a picture of it.

Our harbor pilot boards the Sun Princess at 7:08:51 AM.
Pictures of the pilot boat approaching and leaving our ship show that it took less than 1 minute 35 seconds for them to dock, the pilot to board, and for the pilot boat to pull away. That is reminiscent of race cars and their pit stops.
