Caribbean Cruise Day 12 – You Say Grenada, I say Grenada

Day 12 and no excursions. In fact, we have no plans at all concerning Grenada so took a lazy morning. Arrived late for breakfast and got ushered into the far end room of the buffet as Venezia was closing. Frosties were available and bananas were back after a 3 day hiatus. I've been needing some … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise Day 12 – You Say Grenada, I say Grenada

Caribbean Cruise Day 11 – St Lucia in the Sky with Bananas

We got up early for another excursion day. These trips are good. They get you off the boat, you get to do something interesting and usually provide a local driver that will happily talk you through the sights you pass, giving you some history of the island thrown in. You don't have to worry about … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise Day 11 – St Lucia in the Sky with Bananas

Caribbean Cruise Day 10 – Raiders of the Lost Park

Okay, by this point I have run out of witty titles. Today we visit the Island of Martinique (which I cannot say or hear without my brain changing it to Mystique) and it's simply a very beautiful place. I could happily spend more time here than our cruise schedule allows for. I love visiting locations … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise Day 10 – Raiders of the Lost Park

Caribbean Cruise Day 8 – Brides, Grooms and Funny Pirates

Welcome to day 8 of our Caribbean Cruise holiday. Today is another day at sea but also the wonderful day for which we are all here in the first place. A family wedding. The bride is the younger of my two Cousins on this trip. The older of my two Cousins is already married and … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise Day 8 – Brides, Grooms and Funny Pirates

Caribbean Cruise Day 6 – The ‘Fabulous’ Amber Cove

The Azura docked at Amber Cove in the early hours of the morning. Unlike the other Islands we had visited so far, this port was not so much a gateway to the Island itself but a purpose built and self contained cruise resort. I really enjoyed the day here, it had all the usual duty … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise Day 6 – The ‘Fabulous’ Amber Cove

Caribbean Cruise Day 5 – Bullet for my Valentine?

I woke up around 4.30am to the ship rocking violently and the sound of suitcases sliding along shelves in both directions. Managed to get back to sleep as motion doesn't bother me, apparently I have good sea legs; when lying down. I was we awoken a second time by an announcement from Captain Bob that … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise Day 5 – Bullet for my Valentine?

Caribbean Cruise Day 4 – St Kitts Oil Starved Railway

Welcome to day 4. Hopefully you have got a sense by now that the weather on this trip is less than perfect. When it's hot, it's hot and it's glorious, but global warming has changed the Caribbean weather to a point where the coral is dying and rain showers in the Dry season are brief … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise Day 4 – St Kitts Oil Starved Railway
