  7. At Sea (George Town, Grand Cayman) — Monday, December 24 - (34) (15)
    This port was canceled because of a storm. I spent the day swimming in the pool. The boat was rocking heavily from the storm causing the pool water to toss us onto the deck and then suck us back into the pool. It was such fun, all things considered.
