After visiting the island of s:t Thomas the ship set sail for Barbados, quite a distance so we were looking forward to a whole day at sea.
It was a nice day, beautiful weather and calm winds.
Pool area was not too crowded and the DJ played nice music all day.

Shailja decides against it today and S and I set off towards the reef. Ok snorkelling, some colourful tropical fish. Unfortunately if you have snorkelled in the Maldives this is not as good.
