Tall Ships At Greenwich - The Emergency Cover

Sitting in the Gypsy Moth pub - like you do - before seeing the ships, I noticed the registration plate of the ambulance parked outside:
Company Name - First Aid Cover Ltd 
Registration - P999 FAC
The car is - V999 FAC


This one is - M999 FAC
 
Apparently, when the company was started the owner bought up all these 999 plates for his vehicles.
Being the "Boss", his plate is B999 FAC we were told.

Caribbean Cruise - Ship's Interior

Strangely, I don't seem to have taken any photos of our cabin!
This is the atrium spanning decks 1 to 3

Buffet restaurant

Clever Scandinavian idea - stack the plates upside down so they don't get dirty

One of the many buffet serveries

In the atrium

Explorers lounge

Another (small) restaurant
