I did mention that there are almost no children on the ship, right? In fact there are only two, teens both, who do not belong to the crew. Lovely young Canadians, met them on shore in Grand Cayman.
Apparently the water slide still is open, even when there are no takers.
I went sliding this afternoon. The sun was bright, the humidity up and even with the wind blowing it seemed like the thing to do. I was their first customer this cruise. Day 5, third sea day. Only person sliding.
I even took my underwater Canon and made a couple of videos. From this I can assure you that it is a long walk for a very short (15 seconds) slide.
