The morning after pirate night i thought i'd chill out up on deck and cane through my book so i could start on bill brysons lightningbolt kid, what i got in return was a large red back and neck.. the sun is rather cunning at sea, i had my front towards the sun whilst sitting under the shade of the sails above.. i spent a couple of hours in the shade but the sun was reflecting of the tiny waves behind me back on to me.. that was the end of any sun for me on this boat.. with the two complimentry bottles of lotion now on my back i sat through the final hour of sparticous, it's taken 3 goes at watching as after an hour the dvd palyer cuts out and will only let you watch an extra 7 mins of the film before it restarts again. Also to add to the agony of my sunburn i started to get a toothache to keep me in pain till i fell asleep..

Next days art class was to draw the ship that we are on, my first one came out rather cack so i started another one when everyone else was leaving.. it took me a couple of hours but it was definatly worth it check it in the pics.. tonight was captains dinner night, people dress up and he makes a speech, obviously being the only backpacker my sunday best outfit was a scruffy short sleeved shirt, cargos and dirty trainers but i did use extra deodrant tonight to make up for it, the lobster and champagne went down well aswell as some special serving of desert they got the waiters to run around with on their heads whilst it was on fire.. apparently it's some sort of tradition

After the dinner was talent show night.. there was some good stuff going on.. some funny jokes from fabrice and some crooning from the staff singers.. the highlight was probably angeelas dress being made of silk making her tiny g-string extremly visible, i got it on camera but it doesn't do it justice..

Ok the last day at sea of being spoilt and treated like royalty was here.. i felt like shit all day and missed breakfast and lunch due to acute alcohol poisoning.. i managed to get up at 4pm for my first and probably last art exhibition, i stumbled around trying not to talk to anyone and just drink some water but on this ship it's very near impossible to go from one end to the other without getting into some light conversation with someone. the evening came quick and we were treated to the last supper, a little speech and a lot of flag waving by the staff. i went on deck at night and we could see the lights and eastern lightouse of barbados, i was a little gutted it couldn't be during the day whilst i was at the crows nest so i could shout down 'land ahoy' but maybe they'll be a next time in my life for the chance..
