Aug 14, 2017 - Last day of relaxing

Another beautiful day. Today, we got up and went our separate ways. After breakfast, Jean went down to the beach to a cabana and to walk the beach. And I sat in the Calypso Lounge downstairs and typed up the log for July 28 about our first day in Bogota ( it took most of the day). About 12:15 Jean came over, and we both got a hot dog at Doggies (finally!). I enjoyed a Dover Dod with sauerkraut, caramelized onions with mustard. Jean ordered a hot dog with caramelized onions. After eating the hot dog, I returned to the room to continue...

Aug 13, 2017 - Beach Day

We slept in late today. I got up about 7:15 and went out on the balcony so as not to disturb Jean. She awoke about 8:00. We decided today would be a beach day, so she went down and picked a spot while I showered. Then after I showered, we went down on the beach to the cabana, same as two days ago. We went to breakfast at Portofino's for a la carte breakfast about 9:30. I had the french toast and Jean created an omelet with shrimp and feta cheese. It was a large omelet, so I helped her finish. Then we were back on the beach reading and...

Aug 12, 2017 - A Pool Day

Another beautiful day! We got up and went down to the pool to reserve a cabana at 7:30. We stayed there relaxing until 9:00, when we went to the breakfast buffet at Bayside restaurant. Then we returned to the cabana to read and relax. The cabana was enclosed, which blocked any breeze, but kept the sun out. We went into the pool, which was quite warm. Jean used a raft to float for awhile. Just a relaxing morning. We really did not have much time on the OAT trip to relax and swim. About 11:00, we went over to the Bajan Craft Market to look at...

Aug 11, 2017 - A 4 hour tour of Barbados

Beautiful weather again. It rained briefly about 8:30 pm after we were back in our room. We were up early and had the breakfast buffet at Bayside restaurant. Then we walked over to the tour desk to checkin for our 4 hour tour. She called the driver who appeared about 5 minutes later. Our driver (I don't remember his name) drove us slowly up along the West coast along the Caribbean sea. The island is only 21 miles long by 14 miles wide, so you don't have to drive very fast. The first stop was a viewpoint overlooking Bridgetown's harbor....

Aug 10, 2017 - The Beach and a Massage

It has been a beautiful day, with no rain. We went to breakfast in our swimsuits. We had a la carte breakfast at Portofino's restaurant. The host asked us how we enjoyed Kimonos last night. (He was the Sandals Restaurants Manager and we saw him last night.) I had Egg Benedict with salmon. Jean had french toast. We then proceed to the beach to find a place for the morning. Jean picked a cabana for us. We placed our towels and items in the cabana. We then needed to do a couple of things. When Jean found out the VIP snorkeling trip was three...

Aug 9, 2017 - A Relaxing Day

We both had a cold restless night last night. I think we will turn off the a/c tonight before going to sleep. We went down to breakfast at Bayside restaurant for the buffet breakfast. What a great selection! Any buffet that includes lox is just fine with me. After enjoying breakfast in the open air, feeling the ocean breeze on a sunny morning, we returned to the room until 9:40. We then headed over to the Sandals Lounge for the 10:00 orientation tour of the property. I also wanted to talk with the concierges about a few things. One of the...

Aug 8, 2017 - Travel day to Barbados

We left the hotel at 8:00 this morning to go to our gate. We proceeded over to the American Airlines counters. We used the kiosk for our luggage tags and boarding passes. Then we got in the line to drop off the bags. It was moving slow. There were three counters open, but each seemed to have a problem. We finally got to the front of the line and again, three problems holding people up at the counter. But, one of the agents waved us forward, and told me to place the bags on the scale at the empty counter next to hers. She then took our...

Jan 20, 2017 - Ninja Turtles

We have travelled from Port Lauderdale to Barbados. The temperature is getting warmer and warmer. 28 degrees yesterday and the sea temperature is the same. We have enjoyed our sea days with a lecture from Katie Adie who was excellent, fantastic evening entertainment and relaxing in the sun. Ian sang in the karaoke night and did rather well. Today we docked in Barbados at 7am. We were with three other cruise ships so a very busy port. Our outing today was on a catamaran to snorkel with turtles. It was warm sunny day and the crew were very...

Mar 26, 2016 - Barbados

You may be disappointed, or more probably delighted, that for reasons of time and prohibitive ship's WIFI charges, I have been obliged to consolidate my daily reports into this single entry covering the trip from Antigua down to Barbados via a varied collection of French and English Caribbean islands. Now we are not committed to the practice of seeing the world from a ship but some parts of the world make this the most convenient manner of covering the territory. I would make the observation that this did not apply to our fellow travellers,...

Jan 24, 2016 - Barbados

We were up just in time to stand on the balcony and watch as our ship docked in Barbados. When Marilyn & I sat together with our morning coffee, we were delighted to see another large ship approaching the Pier. It was the Queen Mary 2. (Queen Mary 2) After a breakfast in the Buffet, we were ready to join Eddie & Jan for a tour of the Island. A lady cab driver named Merleen was our guide this morning and a fine tour it was! All eight people who were in that small Van enjoyed the tour. We learned a great deal about the population and culture...

I am up at 6:00 up to the Serenity deck with a cup of coffee and a roil as we are heading to Bridgetown the main city on the island of Barbados, watch the ship dock then it is down for breakfast before heading off the ship.

I go to a...

Apr 17, 2014 - Bridgetown, Barbados

4/17 – 4/22 In five days and 2340 miles we arrived at our first Caribbean stop - Bridgetown, Barbados. Along the way, we finally entered Eastern Daylight Savings Time. We did not figure it out exactly, but we had approximately 27 time changes. A couple half hours and, around South America, we set the clock forward once before continuing to set the clock back. All in all we gained a whole day’s worth of sleep. On one of the days, the ship had a talent show and both of us sang in the choir. Ken also sang a South African song. In Bridgetown we...
