Walking back to the ship
The walk back along the road and then along the tourist path in the public park did seem to take a long time.
When we reach the roads in flyovers after the park we turn right following the river and walked back towards the docked ship.
This path lead towards a row of apartment blocks and to the left the back of the market. We went into the market for a quick look around and to have a coffee.
When we left the Market Square we turned left and past a row of cafés and bars. On the opposite side of the path there was a row of stages. On one of them a lone guitarist was performing. We both agreed that this would have been a good place to pass our time rather than getting lost for over an hour.
When we were back at the terminal I decided to go onboard and pick up my laptop to try and get the Microsoft Office software to decide that it was indeed registered. Security at the gate asked to see my passport as well as my cruise card. This was a first!
Back in the terminal I had to wait a while for the Wi-Fi to connect. When it had, my laptop software worked for the first time on the whole cruise. We made WhatsApp calls to check in on family before we both went through security and went back on board.
The Atrium had free chairs and tables and we took advantage of the spaces and picked up sandwiches from the International Café for a late lunch.
Leaving St John
Sapphire Princess left St John at around 4 pm. Out on deck it was windy as the ship spun to leave the harbour.
