then got off the ship and did some sightseeing,
then re-boarded later in the day.

We boarded sometime around 1 p.m.
and never got back off! -not for PR that is.





Come evening time, this section of Old San Juan looked like this..



We had a view across San Juan harbour like so...




which changed at night to this...

Ours was just a few mins. before sailaway.

I think 'The Call' came at about 9:30 p.m. --it got started around 9:50
and by the time we returned to the cabin to store our Fashionable Orange Jackets
we were moving!

We'll be sailing here two weeks before the superbowl so for the conference finals playoffs. Wonder if they will post pone the drill during that time as well. I mean c'mon this is the game that detrmines who going to the playoffs (lol). However, safety first so I won't be too upset. Actually, I have no worries not like the Detriot Lions will be playing. (hahaha)

We were in Cabin 6207 which is riiight up forward(front)
so I couldn't help but investigate the small tiered bow-decks
accessible via the 'secret doors' at the extreme forward ends of corridors
on Decks 6 and 7, 9 and 10 (Bridge is on 8)

These pictures are amazing. I am going to get a new camera soon, hopefully I can take pix as nice as these. Those seahorses look dangerous, should I bring knee pads?

Bought mine Apr. 22nd. in St. Maarten at Boolchands on Front Street...cost me 599 !

Back home I checked the internet prices on the Nikkor 10.5 mm. fisheye for Nikon
and found anything like $900-700 --so I guess I didn't do too badly.







It's a neat little thing compared with the other wide-angle lens I've been using...the Sigma 10-20 mm.


....................................


Bear in mind that Sigma also makes fisheye's...
The one I had in mind when I walked into Boolchand's was the 10 mm. like so..
but they make a 15 mm. model as well






Buy wisely -they're not cheap!
Research the whole range!

I will do my homework. My new camera is going to be a canon. I can not buy it it St. Marteen, the cruise that I am booking does not stop there. What about St. Thomas. Has anyone had any luck buying lenses there at a decent price?
