Welcome to day 8 of our Caribbean Cruise holiday. Today is another day at sea but also the wonderful day for which we are all here in the first place. A family wedding.

Day 7 and you'd think we'd have the lay of the land, or ship, by now. We do not. Navigation is a source of constant arguing and bickering. Mostly about the colours of the carpets; are they blue or green. The guide says that the carpet on the stairs near our cabin is green.
