    The Entertainment Continues

    January 16 on the U.S. Virgin Islands

    Over the last few days the entertainment has been nonstop. We had a top tier loyalty event in the Aqua Theater with the Captain, champagne and a private show.
    We frequently have enjoyed the Jazz Club with its quartet and singer.
    The 90 minute Grease performance was like a Broadway production (or even better).
    We were also entertained by a Las Vegas vocalist, Tony Tillman who was backed by the full Harmony orchestra. He was non stop energy covering all types of music while getting the crowd involved.Read more

    St. Thomas

    November 30, 2015 on the U.S. Virgin Islands

    One of the most popular cruise ports actually holds lots of great things to experience. We are the less tourist travelers and that may be hard to find here, but not impossible. Coki Beach was a great place to get away from it all. The beach is cluttered with locals and the water is crystal clear. We even got some great vegetarian eats! Another amazing spot, which I think will become much more touristy in the near future, is Secret Harbor Beach. With a bar just steps from the sand, it's hard to beat.Read more

    St Thomas, Oh goody, US immigration.

    November 11, 2014 on the U.S. Virgin Islands

    We've got the usual US immigration farce at St Thomas this morning.
    The line for non US passengers is the full length of the Royal Promenade, it's now 9.30am and it's been like that since 7am.
    Sheila and I have decided to leave going right until the last minute, because I'm definitely not standing in that bloody line.
    The real bad thing is that we'll have to do it all over again in Ft Lauderdale, all because our last stop is in Coco Cay which is British.
    Why can't they work these stops out better?
    If our last stop was a US port we wouldn't have to do all this crap again.
    But no that would be to simple for RCCL.
    We've decided that this will be our last transatlantic for a good while, as we're sick of the US immigration, and also the long haul flights back home.

    US immigration, and it's SHITE attitude

    November 12, 2014 on the U.S. Virgin Islands

    Well the US immigration met all my low expectations.
    Sheila and I approached the customs officer, and with a smile I said good morning and handed her my documents.
    I then stood back and casually pushed my hands in to my shorts pockets.
    The cheeky cow of an immigration officer did no more than glare at me, and in a very condescending voice said to me "take your hands out of your pockets " I said "what?
    Really? "
    She said yes take your hands out of your pockets.
    Well I lost it and said to Sheila "I'm 64 years of age and being spoken to like a child.
    I then pushed my hands back in to my pockets, Fuming.
    She then said it's a security issue and that she didn't know where I'd been before I came to immigration.
    I said "well take a wild guess where I've been as we'd been on a cruise ship for the last 12 days".
    Anyway that was about it she stamped my passport and off we went.
    It just pisses me off the attitude of these people, give them a uniform and a bit of power and it goes to their head.
    I'm afraid as much as I love the USA I can't be doing with their over the top, and paranoid immigration service.
    It's things like this that make you realize why the USA is so hated around the world.
