    St Kitts

    October 31, 2017 in Saint Kitts and Nevis

    Happy Halloween!!!

    Tonight will be a very busy night with all the Halloween shoots but for now I am relaxing out in port. Most of the team went to the beach but after being stuck on the ship for so long I didn’t want to just sit on the beach all day. I also didn’t want to pay for the taxi. So I met up with my friend Ashton (bar steward) and we did some exploring. Now we are relaxing in an Indian restaurant for a snack and some wifi.

    The Caribbean is definitely as hot as I remember and you would never know there was a hurricane based on this island. I’m sure we will see the affects soon enough though.

    Basseterre, St. Kitts

    March 9 in Saint Kitts and Nevis

    Unser Ankunftshafen lag erneut 3km vom Dorfzentrum entfernt. Über Unebenheiten, Löcher und neben wilden Rasern kamen wir ins Zentrum. Schulkinder staunten Brian teils mit offenem Mund an, aber winkten und grüssten ihn. Nach einer Kirchenbesichtigung, dem Independence Square (früher als Sklavenmarkt gebraucht) und dem chaotischen Getümmel im Zentrum und vielen hilfsbereiten Menschen machten wir noch einen Abstecher in den Shoppingecken (vermutlich vorallem für Schiffsbesucher) mit sehr amüsanten Verkäufern. Einer sprach Brian an und meinte, dass schöne Menschen wie sie zwei zusammenhalten müssen... Kurz vor Sonnenuntergang vor den Mücken wieder auf dem Schiff.
    Das Schiff ist nicht so unseres.. Wenige ruhige Ecken, das Essen ausser dem Dessert kein Freudentanz und die Angestellten ausser ein paar wenigen scheinen nicht gut gelaunt zu sein... Und ein Run am Buffet wie gestern, wenn es tropisches Buffet gab mit viel Fleisch, da wird gedrängelt und reingequetscht... Es könnte ja jemand verhungern.
    In Nassau und Amber Cove (unsere ersten 2. Stopps), konnte nicht angehalten werden aufgrund der unruhigen See. Unsere Mägen hielten dies aber ohne Probleme aus;-).

    St. Kitts Arrival

    February 17, 2016 in Saint Kitts and Nevis

    We had a phenomenal sail to St. Kitts… a nice leisurely broad reach with 4-6 foot rollers trailing us. It was neat to see the Kingdom of Redonda’s cliffs come into view. Its an uninhabited micronation. From 1865-1912 there was a lucrative phosphates export business into Britain. As for the history of this steep little tyke…. look it up…. it’s shrouded in mystery. Apparently a trader in Montserrat noticed no other nation lay claim to the neighboring island. So he took it upon himself to claim it for him and his son.

    As we neared St. Kitts, Nevis came into view. A green island with a great mountain that disappeared into white clouds, it was just as Christopher Columbus had found Nevis. We entered the customs port of St. Kitts in Basse Terre where large rolling waves tore through the anchorage. This was not going to make for a quiet calm night. So we motored into a marina for some luxury sleep. Yay! We cleared in next to two titanic-looking cruise ships…. I will never trust a cruise ship that large. I just don’t get it.

    St. Kitts Touring the Main Land

    February 18, 2016 in Saint Kitts and Nevis

    The next day we met with our friends Tom/Megs & Nils/ Lisa. While figuring transportation to Brimstone Hill Fort, a street food chef came over to us hurriedly said ‘ I have a present for you.’ then puts two kicking lobsters in my hand and walks away to tend to his grill. …uh…. what?!?!. I eventually gave them back and we found a van to the fort. WOW what a fort, it was so picturesque, standing prominently on an enormous monolith of land. Even driving up to it was fun. A guardhouse on one of the hairpin turns held about 6 lounging cats with a sign next to them that said ‘no dogs allowed’. The fort was very well restored and held really great informational stations. The premises were great to explore and we made the most of it. Especially when we scaled the side of a wall to see the captains quarters….Once we were all “forted-out” we visited an old batik plantation which was immaculate with old trees and lovely gardens.Read more

    Bassaterre pt. II

    December 21, 2017 in Saint Kitts and Nevis

    In all of the excitement about paddle boarding, I forgot that we went to the National Museum in the morning. This small single floor museum looked at the history and culture of St Kitts and Nevis, the latter of whom apparently fought for independence from St Kitts despite its small size.

    Anyhow, back to paddle boarding. So, our transport did not turn up. As we waited, it became apparent the other passengers were rather upset about the whole day - the lack of information generally, safety brief, instructors who were poorly trained and one woman even drifting out to sea! We hadn't realised the others had had such a poor time...however their complaints meant we were all refunded the trip! Despite the transport gaff, we actually had a great day. Sadly however, I left my hat where we had initially landed and by the time I realised it was too late 😕

    On return to port, we wandered into town where local dancers were out in the streets providing some evidence of the culture we'd been reading about in the museum.

    Back on board we were treated to a cloud free, and quite spectacular sunset. In the bar, we made a reasonable stab at the trivia quiz, scoring 11/15. However the multimedia challenge was about reality TV. We scored 1. I was heartened that my knowledge of this subject was so poor.
