March 14, 8:15 am. Woke up to the sound of a brass band playing. Opened the door to the terrace and saw that a cruise ship had arrived. The brass band was on the pier playing what sounded like the same song for each of the first 20 or so launches from the ship bringing the passengers ashore.
Downtown was crawling with people for a while, then I watched from noon til 1:30 all the passengers lining up on the pier to get back on board. By 2:15pm the ship pulled up anchor and slowly departed northward.
