    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.💃🕺

    Antigua

    January 14 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    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 Johns, Antigua

    February 26, 2011 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    Early up again and watched the ship pull into Antigua still amazes me how the drive these huge ships into these tiny ports.
    The weather isn't brilliant at the minute, we've got the Caribbean Liquid Sunshine... we know it as rain...
    But it is warm and going to rise to around 80° according to the weather forecast.
    Anyway I believe the weather at home is rubbish at the moment....so that helps....LOL.
    Boy has the weather changed its 10am ish and its topping at least 80°.
    Just going to have a walk around the town, which is normally all we do at these ports, unless there's something we really want to see.
    The ship and the getting there is the best part..in my humble opinion anyway
    ..... First impressions of St Johns, which is where we are in Antigua, are good, people seem really friendly as normally is the case in the Caribbean.
    Even the taxi and minibus drivers are very polite when you refuse them.
    The reply from them is always "have a good day sir".
    Had a look around the old cricket ground which I must have seen on tv 70s or 80s, right across the road is the fire station with its two immaculate fire engines
    Then just around the corner is the prison, which was built in 1735 and is still in use and has 300 inmates.
    After about an hour or so I took Sheila back to the ship and I went exploring, looking for a local bar.
    I don't like the tourist type bars they have by the ship in any port you go to.
    They are not really authentic.
    Anyway I found what I was looking for...it was called "Vics Place" and I was the only white face.
    I had a brilliant hour or so watching cricket on tv with the locals.
    The evening consisted of a quiz (again)... a brilliant singers and dancers Broadway show. And chatting with some great company we've met.

    Antigua English Harbour

    December 30, 2015 in Antigua and Barbuda ⋅ ⛅ 82 °F

    Well, on the last 15 minutes of our trip as zeroed in on our destination harbor.... we were about to take down the sails and turn on the engine when a very not- so-funny thing happened.... the engine didn't turn on. And the cut into the harbor was narrow with rocks situated on both sides and the wind was coming from a poor angle to try and sail into it.... so we went back out to sea and Mike began trouble shooting the root of our malfunctioned engine.
    An hour later, Mike saw that our main fuse to the engine had failed.... miraculously, we happened to have a working spare onboard! And we turned the engine on and heard a beautiful sound, that of rumbling and pumping and water squirting out the back! And the next 4 days were, again, drying everything out, cleaning, and finding laundry that cost under $65 /load.... we found a lady who did it for $45 / load. But the following days we hiked around
