Not quite 20,000 leagues

6:00 am was a very early start for cruisers who are supposed to be relaxing. This morning found us up at dawn with around a dozen other souls to commemorate ANZAC Day with a service on board Seven Seas Navigator.Thank you to Regent Cruises and on board lecturer, Terry Bishop, for organising this event.

After seeing to our ablutions, breakfasting and waiting for a decent hour to make its appearance we rode the ship's tender into Georgetown, capital of the Cayman Islands.

We passed by two Carnival ships in the harbour - they remained afloat all day
Submarine ahoy - we transferred from our tender to a sub shuttle to this little submarine
I didn't realise we were going down to a depth of over 100 feet in this vessel
We had a porthole from which we could view the reef life
We took tens of images - all beautiful but I'll only bore you with two

A shipwreck

After our adventure we repaired to Margaritaville, a US/Caribbean cultural institution

The local ale was on offer
One appetiser was sufficient to fortify two hungry submariners for their next adventure
Next stop was Stingray City  - an hour's journey from Georgetown
There were rays all around
Our guide giving a lesson on stingray anatomy
The stingray gives Mr Geniaus the eye
I get ready for a cuddle
Welcome back to dry land by a prickly sunbather on the dock
