February 2008

Well one thing is a fact in life – I am true to my word – I told you this entry would be late !!

I have just come back from a glorious holiday on the first cruise I have ever done – and it won’t be the last !!

We boarded Oceanna in Barbados amongst the sound of steel drums, wearing flower garlands and soaking up the warm sunshine. From the moment we set foot on the boat (sorry i mean ship – the Captain will go mad calling it a boat !!) we were cared and catered for in every way imaginable.

I won’t bore you with all the details (it would be like looking at someones holiday photographs) but suffice to say it was a blast from start to finish and this holiday is up with the very best I have ever had.

We visited some of the most beautiful islands in the Carribean including:- Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua, St Maartan, Mexico, The Cayman Islands, Curaco, Aruba, Jamaica and an unscheduled stop in Grenada !!

The food would not have been out of place in a Michelin star restaurant, the waiters were attentive without being intrusive, the shows I saw would not have looked any different to a West End stage and the croupiers in the casino well. – they tried their best (eh Paul!!) but …. they lost lots of dough!!!

We met some wonderful people … you know who you are !!! and the whole experience was unforgettable – THANK YOU xxx
