    Schönes Antigua

    January 22 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Insel Nummer 5 unserer Reise ist das von Dominica 191 km entfernte Antigua.🏝
    Da es auch hier erwarteterweise keine Druckkammer gibt und Marc wieder an das Sauerstoffgerät soll, schickte er mich los etwas zu unternehmen.
    Für mich ist es nicht mein erster Besuch auf dieser schönen bunten und lebensfrohen Insel.🏝🏖😍 So habe ich die Insel schon früher mal mit dem Fahrrad und mit dem Auto erkundet.
    Mit der alleinreisende Frau aus dem Ruhrpott machte ich mich heute auf, um zu einem der 365 wunderbaren weissen Strände zu fahren.
    Beim Absteigen von der AIDA🚢wurden wir mit karibischer Steel-Musik empfangen und hatten einen grandiosen Blick👀 auf vier im Hafen liegende Kreuzfahrtschiffe.🛳🚢🛥⛴....Das war schon sehr beeindruckend....😲
    Der Hafen mit seiner kunterbunten Shoppingmeile in Pastelltönen wurde seit meinem letzten Besuch hier auf der Insel vor 10 Jahren weiter ausgebaut.

    Dann ging es mit 10 Leuten mit einem sehr lustigen Taxifahrer für 8 USD je Person zum Valley Church Beach, einen karibischen Traumstrand mit türkisfarbenen Meer.🏝🏖
    Sonne, Strand und Meer....einfach nur schön🏝🏖😎😎😎😍👌
    Rechtzeitig holte uns unser Fahrer wieder ab, so dass ich zumindest noch etwas mit Marc durch den Hafen bummeln konnte.🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️💑
    Antigua könnten wir uns durchaus mal für einen Erholungsurlaub vorstellen.
    Nach dem Ablegen⚓🚢 mit Sail away gingen wir heute im asiatischen Bufett-Restaurant essen🍲🍤🍣😋 und hörten im Beach-Club noch der täglich spielenden coolen Life-band zu.💃🕺

    Fun docking this morning. You could hear the band playing from our stateroom. I stood on the balcony watching the ship dock and people disembarking.

    Today we are off to Rum Bus Beach which has cabanas, hammocks and pina coladas which is my dream! Its about a half hour drive.

    Its wonderful!

    Lovely day relaxing near the beautiful carribean blue ocean.

    St John the port town has shopping near the dock and the town is developed for the Caribbean. Lots of shops - yay.

    We got back about 3pm and checked out a few clothes shops. Expensive! But it was nice looking at some lovely clothes.

    St John's Antigua

    January 28 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Good, smooth journey from St Lucia, arriving in port early this morning. Taking a long, leisurely stroll around town, ending up having a beer while catching up with emails. Taking a trip this afternoon to see the sights and Nelson’s Dockyard.

    St John's Antigua

    January 13, 2014 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    After sailing through some pretty stormy seas after leaving La Coruna, by the time we sailed just south of the Azores, the weather had improved significantly and we were able to wander around the ship and attempt to find our sea legs. We arrived in Antigua to clear and sunny weather and a temperature of 25 degrees, expected to rise to 29 degrees. We found a taxi and headed off to Dickenson Bay and spent a good few hours swimming and just relaxing. We thought we would never get here. The taxi ride cost US$24 return and well worth it.Read more

    Antigua {St. John‘s}

    December 16, 2018 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Antigua und Barbuda, zwei Inseln, ein Staat, mit der Währung EC$ (Ostkaribischer Dollar), die auf vielen westindischen Inseln Anwendung findet, neben US $ und auch €.
    Früher britisch, seit 1981 unabhängig, gehört aber zum Commonwealth.
    Vom Schiff aus gesehen war Antigua bisher die einladendste Insel.
    Keine Vorbereitungen für Unternehmungen an Land getroffen. Direkt am Steg buhlen Taxifahrer um die Gunst der Kunden. Es geht das Gerücht um, das sie die weiter entfernten Strände als schöner empfehlen um mehr Umsatz zu machen. Eine nette Dame von der Touristinformation hat uns dann eine Inselrundfahrt für 30$ pP empfohlen mit Strandaufenthalt. Mit einigen Mitreisenden haben wir uns dann einen Minibus geteilt.
    Fazit: eine gute Idee, wir haben viel gesehen, sind an vielen Kirchen vorbei gefahren (ich hätte gerne mal eine Lobpreis-Steel-Band gehört), haben Falmouth Harbor besucht und die Befestigungsanlagen der Engländer, die sich mit Kanonen gegen die einsegelnden Franzosen verteidigt haben.
    Dann ging es weiter über die Insel zum karibischen Traumstrand: Jelly Harbor. Nach 2 Stunden relaxen und schwimmen ging es mit dem Minibus wieder zurück zum Schiff.

    St John, Antigua

    November 6, 2017 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    We’re docked with 2 other large cruise ships today (adventure of the seas and celebrity summit). I had to do Gangway in the morning but now I’m off with another photog Marie. After walking around for a while we went to a café called Waterview Café and bar for some lunch and wifi. Both were disappointing. It was a nice view though. The café is normally just over a bridge from the ship but instead you have to go around the back. The bridge is still there but it’s destroyed. There was also lots of little fishing boats just off shore that were half under water. This is another port where you can still see some of the affects of the hurricane.
    We both however did still really need wifi so we are now having some ice cream for dessert. This time both the ice cream and the wifi are good.
    This is definitely not my favourite Caribbean port but it’s nice. You don’t need to walk far from the ship for anything.
    On the gangway this morning was a steel drum band. They had all the passengers dancing. Some pictures of them will be posted later.

    St John, Antigua

    November 20, 2017 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    You can quickly start to see the changes and improvements after the hurricane. The bridge that was destroyed last time we were here was rebuilt. So passengers can easily get to the bar/café that we ate at last time.

    This time however I decided to give one of the beaches a try. Our assistant manager Caroline and I got a taxi and tried a new beach. Our taxi driver was hilarious, he said his name is Stress and his taxi service is called Stress-Free. There was also so much loyalty between the taxi drivers. They all say the exact same prices and don’t steal fairs from each other. We had arranged for Stress to pick us up when we were done at the beach and right before another driver backed into his taxi and scrapped up the back a little bit. When he were standing waiting for him we were surrounded by taxi drivers but none of them tried to get us to just go with them instead. Very different from back home.

    The beach was one Stress recommended based on how much time we had. It didn’t have tons of stuff around it except a Sandals resort which was about to re-open. So there was hardly anyone on the beach. Swimming in the water was weird. Is was the typical warm Caribbean water but it was full of fish. The water wasn’t clear enough to see them but whenever your feet stopped moving they swarmed your feet nibbling at them. It didn’t hurt it just felt like many little pokes all over your feet. I almost stepped on fish a few times. Caroline had googles with her so see would go down and look at my feet trying to see them. She caught glimpses of them a few times. Saying they were tiny little fish with a few bigger ones. It was a very odd feeling on your feet. I’m sure we have nice clean feet now though.

    After the beach we stopped for some wifi and ice cream before rushing back to the ship for showers before work.
