... isn't enough, they are apparently pack a pretty mean bite too, so the warning signs tells us. We were finally delivered back to our floating castle with some time to spare for a swim, a few beers for Stu and a few cocktails for me before we were off to dinner in the Liberty Restaurant, the other of the two "Formal" dining rooms on the ship.
