  • Today was the final special tour we will take as world cruisers with Silversea. They arranged a nice tour of the island in small 12 person buses called “coasters”. We drove through the bustling capital city, saw magnificent, green mountains, acres of banana plantations and very dense rain forests. We were also treated to a fabulous view of the iconic symbol of St. Lucia, the Pitons which are twin peaks that rise nearly 1/2 mile from the ocean floor.
    We paid a visit to a volcano crater that has many large pools of bubbling water with lots of steam and sulphur-scented vapors rising from them. A botanical garden was a special treat since our guide seemed to have a particular interest in plants and was a wealth of information as she guided us through the lush vegetation.
    We also had a lunch that featured many local specialties. It was a quick and exciting taste of this lovely Caribbean island.

    The third photo is a tile representation of a flying fish - we have seen hundreds at sea on this trip!

  • We took the final bus tour of our trip today. We went down the west side of the island and saw the "drive in" volcano, some botanical gardens and waterfalls and had lunch at an old plantation. Lots of fun but riding around those hills in a little bus was hair-raising. Better to sleep through it as I did. :-)

  • Today is Thursday 21st February and today we dock at our first Caribbean island the island of St Lucia.
    The last time we were here was two years ago and I'm afraid the overall impression of the town we landed at, the name of which escapes me, was not a good one it appeared to be a mixture of the worst places in Wigan and Bradford, but with sun.....
    We were twice warned about the dangers of walking in certain areas, once by the police and once by a local barber.
    It sort of ruined all the brochure pictures and romantic island blurb....Lol
    Anyway, yesterday was nice the weather was once again fantastic, and I did another 4 hour marathon sunbathing session with Sheila, John and Jennifer, but with a slight difference, they were in the sunshine and I was in the shade and even in the shade with the ship doing about 17 knots it was still hot hot hot.
    In the afternoon we bombed out of the music quiz only finishing third and there's a new champion team so now we're gunning for two teams...Lol.
    In the evening we first of all watched the duo, who were once again fantastic, we asked Kandy to sing "Babooshka" by Kate Bush which she did brilliantly well.
    Then later we went to the show which was great we first of all had the classical pianist do three numbers, then Gary Ryan the Neil Diamond tribute act did about four numbers and finally Mr Jimmy James finished the show of with another fantastic set, not only is he still a cracking singer who can belt them out with the best of them but he can still do the moves on stage which for a 73 year old is amazing........

  • Well St Lucia was good this time round.
    For one thing everything was open, so there were plenty of shops and things to see, which there weren't last time.
    We got some free internet outside a shopping centre not far from the ship.
    Then we had the piece de resistance "Sandra's Bar", which was a shack with seats, by what passed for a river, but looked more like an open drain, but if I'm honest it didn't smell, well not
    In Sandra's bar you could get local Piton beer for $1.20 a bottle and if you were brave enough you cold sample the delights of smoked herring and cucumber salad.
    This delightful local delicacy looked and smelled awful, but Jermain, who was one of the local characters in the bar waxed lyrical on the delights of this wonderful dish.
    We were all panicking in case he offered us a taste, which thankfully he didn't.....phew!
    The place was full of locals coming and going one of them was a girl whose name I didn't get, who before her shift behind the bar at an all inclusive beach resort, sank four or five bottles of Guinness, while telling us of the free shots to be had while she was working in the hotel
    All in all it was a great afternoon where we met some real people and not one of the expensive and contrived trips from the ship where the things you see and people you meet are all put there for the tourists.
