An early morning rise for this port of call. We were swimming with the dolphins and walking up the river falls. Can't wait...the heads were just a little bit fuzzy, but not bad - good to coast.

Started off with room service once again. Love the fruit plates and great Seattle Coffee. Perfect way to start the day - oh yeah, and some bacon - just cause it's all freeeeee!

Got on us bus and headed towards the Encounter with the Dolphins. This was truly one of the highlights of our trip. We were so excited and were not let down in the least. We learned a fair amount about dolphins and touched them, were dragged along the surface by them and finally gave 'em a kiss and they kissed us back on the cheek. Man oh man did the ocean ever feel refreshing. These are just amazing animals - wow!!!

When that was all said and done we watched the DVD but they wanted $50 firm, we said no thanks! Also wanted $20 for a photo - so it was too steep for our liking. We'll have memories of this in our heads for years to come.

Next stop was the Dunns river falls. Wow, that was soooo neat. We started down at the beach and walked up the falls. Thank Gawd for aqua socks. The guides were careful to see us step in the right place. Must have been about 30 people in our group. We had some funny folks that's for sure. It was incredibly refreshing along the way cause you could dip in, or stand right under them - ahhhhhhh!

When we got to the top (45 min's later) we were offered to buy the DVD for $80, but we said all we have left is $20, so the guy reluctantly sold it to us - yeah, one for us!! Was much easier getting through the market as well. Kept telling the vendors we just spent our last $20 on the DVD. Of course, "we accept plastic" was the next phrase out of each of their mouths. For which our smart response was: we left all of our plastic in our safe in the room on the ship. Hah, made it easier to get through the madness. We were offered weed all along the way and even cocaine. Nada was the response to that. Nothing like a Jamaican jail I'm sure...we're not about to find out.

When we got back to the ship we were both famished, so headed up to the buffet and had a nibble to hold us over until dinner. This was a semi casual night again so we were happy with that. Black jeans go a long way (Jamie know's exactly what I mean). Another amazing dinner to be had.

Sherry & I were both pretty tired so decided to have a nice and quiet movie night in the room (after visiting with everyone at the Pub for 2 cocktails). Didn't want to be anti-social, but also wanted some us time. Got our breaky meal order out in time for the next day. Absolutely enjoyed our us time and were, once again, rocked (a bit heavier this time) to sleep. Next stop, Grand Caymans!!!
