Cruise Day 7 - Doini Island

Day 7 - We were up early and packed ready for a day on the gorgeous Doini Island.

At the end of the jetty is an alfresco eating area with the most amazing murals painted on the roof.

We wandered around looking at the markets and watching some locals sing / dance. 

There was a big cement container in the middle of the markets and when we peeked in we found this!!  The locals caught it in the nearby river - made me a bit wary about going for a swim!  LOL

We decided to go visit the skull cave, but no-one really had any definite idea about how far it was from the resort, so we waited for an hour for a tractor &wagon to come back to take us to the skull cave, but when it finally arrived we found that it was still a bit of a walk up a steep cliff. Unfortunately we weren't dressed for hiking, so were disappointed with the decision not to go. We walked down to the beach and went for a swim / snorkeling.  
After our swim we caught the tender back to the ship.  We were going to the Island celebrations on the Lido deck, but it started raining so we relaxed in the Dome before heading to the Marquee to watch "Star Trek:Into Darkness" - great movie!!   After dinner in the dining room we went to the Orient bar and I sang karaoke!
