We’re starting to get the hang of cruising and have even formed ourselves a routine, or at least starting to see the need for one. For as far as you can see in every direction there is water, which varies in colour from dark grey to dark blue.

Luckily Rhapsody has oodles to do (there are 400 kids on board) so we’re able to whittle away at the entertainment guide until we find something to suit us (or rather, suit my kids). So mornings is breakfast at the Windjammer Café, followed by Uno and Scrabble in the Moonlight Room and a swim in the wave pool. It’s not actually a wave pool – there’s a bit of swell.

Lunch at Windjammer (there’s an argument about this which I lose) and then we head for the stern for some rock-climbing. Once we’ve worn blisters on our fingers we head for the theatre to watch Toy Story 3 (the third time I’ve seen this, but it’s that good).

That brings us neatly to dinner with our lovely waiter, Kostya, who’s so attentive he evens cuts up Mary’s meat for her. Bless him!
