A beautiful cruise from Roatan to Grand Cayman, the last port of call on this Cruise.
One channel on the room TV was the ships location. Here is the map of our last trip before heading home. we left down near the green (roatan) and headed up towards Cuba. We joked about if we missed it we would go home to GITMO Bay where we lived for 3 1/2 years. the blue is shallow water 100ft or less, the white is deep water and green of course is land mass.On the left is the Yucatan Peninsula upper right is Cuba.
There were two other channels showing the view forward on the ship and one showing Aft.(where we have been).
I went down to the 3rd deck and took this picture up to see Sherry on our Balcony on the 5th deck.
(Above is the third deck, empty as we are pulling into port and folks getting ready to catch the ‘tender’ launches) Now I am one interested in boats. These guys are about as good as USN Coxswains. The first boat: (a smaller one)
#2 boat much bigger, watch this maneuver.
Swinging around while the first boat stays tied up.
Now I walked back on the third deck and shot this down so you can see how close that skipper swung that boat around. Neat.
There is two feet between these boats. Below the #1 boat is departing with folks going ashore at Grand Cayman.
After we got ashore I took the first picture of the clear water, you are looking about 40’ down. Clear aqua water.
A storm on the horizon behind our ship. Note the differences in water colors as you go out to sea. Beautiful Aqua to light blue to dark blue.
We are tourists of course, and done the tourist thing, a picture with this Pirate, the friendly kind.
We had a tour here but decided to give it up to friends, but they never took it either because of mixup in tour scheduling. We just walked near ships landing then headed back to the ship for a snack before dinner.
Back aboard, Sherry found out it was a Chocolate celebration. Fruit on sticks covered with milk chocolate. But look above at that beautiful fruit. The watermelon is carved into some beautiful roses with white tipped pedals.
Above was a sushi bar, I don’t do sushi, but it was pretty. I had a cookie swan filled with Pineapple ice cream. (below)
We had three regular waiters Left is Kwan Right is Jayjay.
Our final waiter Marlon, dancing,
A cool towel Elephant and an open sea what could be better?
My after dinner yogurt on the balcony.
The ship is now headed back toward Tampa and we are packing for disembarking.
Thanks for coming this way and joining us.

The most expensive car in the world:
This is the only one built. Prototype of an 88 Oldsmobile it sold for 3.4 million. GM refused to allow Olds to build it because it was too much competition for the Vette.
