Here's my report on the cruise:

Just to let you know that I have just got back from my cruise around Central America on the Braemar. The cruise director wrote "Martin Lee, Leslie James Wright, Geoffrey and Marilyn Dye – Dance Hosts and Instructors: They are a fine team who all get on well and are always willing to help and assist the department. Martin also did line dancing classes and also a lecture." My first line dance class attracted over 60 people!

Good points were:

  1. Eating in the lovely triple aspect Palms Café for most meals.
  2. Eating in the Thistle Restaurant when speciality buffets took place in the Palms Café.
  3. First visits to :

Bad points were:

  1. Too few dancing ladies.
  2. Heavy rain in Puerto Limón, Costa Rica.

For the record ...
