    Wilkommen in Phillipsburg (Saint Martin)

    October 29, 2018 in Sint Maarten ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Als wir heute Morgen aufwachen, ist unser Schiff bereits mit dem Anlegen in Phillipsburg beschäftigt. Wir machen uns fertig und gehen frühstücken.

    Kurz vor 8 kommt die Durchsage, dass unser Schiff für den Landgang freigegeben ist. Nach dem Frühstück können wir also in aller Ruhe alle Sachen schnappen und von Bord gehen.

    Neben uns liegt mittlerweile noch die Azura von P&O Cruises am Pier. Von beiden Schiffen machen sich die Menschen auf zum Landgang und werden von karibischer Musik empfangen.

    Egbert & Chris

    May 2, 2014 in Sint Maarten ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    Well we had a lovely surprise yesterday, when we docked at St Maarten.
    The Serenade of the Seas was next to us and Maz remembered that Egbert and Chris were supposed to be on it for its transatlantic crossing.
    So we decided to ask their security to check if they were on board, the girl was lovely and not only checked they where on board but even phoned their cabin for us.
    As luck would have it they were in.
    So Sue spoke to Chris who said they were just on the way down to the pool, but if we gave them five minutes they would join us.
    It was great to see them as it was almost exactly 12 months since we'd last seen them, which was on the Suez Canal cruise on the Mariner of the Seas.
    We took the water taxi across to the town and had a few beers and a good catch up.
    Egbert filled is in on the details of his appearance on TV on the Antiques Roadshow and how he's now on first name terms with Fiona Bruce, lol.
    It was really great to see them both and there was some sad goodbyes when we went back to the ship.

    Philipsburg - Sankt Maarten ...

    September 13, 2016 in Sint Maarten ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    ... eine kleine halb holländisch / halb französische Insel, die vom Dimanten- und Schmuckverkauf zu leben scheint. Ein schönes Städtchen, aber leider wieder einmal viel zu heiss

    Phillipsburg, St Maarten

    May 2, 2014 in Sint Maarten ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    We've done a lot of the shows and things on board as we've not seen them before, and we've not been disappointed they've been excellent.
    Last night was no different, Tony Tillman was his name and an excellent showman was he.
    He sang everything from, Rat Pack, through Rock and Roll, Soul, Motown and even Country, although the country was a send up and very funny.
    There was one particular punch line that I found very good.
    He asked all the teenagers in the audience if they knew why he was not singing their kind of music and only singing their parents kind of music.
    Well kids it's because the parents paid for the cruise.
    Maybe not the funniest line ever but it's so true and it was brilliantly delivered.
    Another thing about the shows on here is that they are between an hour to an hour and a half long not the usual 45 minutes as on other ships.
    Changing the subject the one thing that is the same as on other ships is the meeting nice people, there's Carl and Gaynor from Birmingham UK, who have lived all over the USA for the last twenty odd years and still sound like they live in deepest dark Brummie land.
    Then there's five people from North Carolina one of them, Lilyan went to the same university as Maz, so they yatterd on and did their Uni hand signs etc.
    The names of the others are, Marvin Lee, Toni, Brenda, and the last guy has a Swahili name that I can't pronounce, probably not because it's Swahili, but because of his broad Carolina accent lol.
    I'll ask him again today and get him to spell it.
    One thing I do know about him is that he has the catering franchise for the Dallas Cowboys no less!!
    Today we're in St Maarten, but as you may have noticed if you have ever read any of my ramblings before, it's the travelling and meeting people that's more important to me than the actual destination.
    Although I do like St Maarten and will be getting off for a stroll.
    We all also want to go to Maho beach to see the planes land as they come very low right over the beach.
    But we'll do that next week when we're on the Indy as we're back here just before the Atlantic crossing, so today we'll just suss out the transport to the beach.
