January 2015, the Caribbean Sea. I spent a week as a guest of the Thomson Dream and its crew as it sailed on its Mayan Treasures cruise. Seven days aboard a floating bubble of existence, as it moved from port to port from Montego Bay in Jamaica, to Honduras, Belize and Mexico.
Captain Terje Ulset and his six hundred strong crew and staff worked tirelessly to keep the fifteen hundred, mainly British, retirees, honeymooners, holiday makers and one guest blogger safe and happy on this 55 tonne floating hotel.
I took my old Canon AE-1 film camera and some grainy black & white rolls of film to capture some of the life on board.
