Cruising the eastern CaribbeanI discovered that some people had bailed from the cruise in USVI and flew home. If I had know that when I had booked I might have done the same thing and headed to Rio earlier but as it was I got a couple of days at sea instead. Fortunately a Brown Booby came along to entertain me, gliding along the side of the ship and occasionally diving into the sea to catch fish. It gave me plenty of panning practice but made me wish for a longer lens.
Unlike the National Geographic Expedition cruises the bridge isn't open but finally there was a tour so I got to see it. A somewhat more formal exercise than just turning up and chatting to the crew on watch.
