Caribbean cruise - day 6

St John's, Antiqua. We walked around town near the pier, seeing an old church cemetery, shops, and a public market for fruits and vegetables. Sidewalks are unmaintained wood, re-bar, rough concrete, and ceramic tiles. Mostly sunny, but several short, heavy, showers.

Caribbean cruise - day 5

Tortola, British Virgins Islands today. We walked part way into the town, then took a three-hour jitney tour of the island. It was a bargin at $15. Beautiful scenery and beaches.

Caribbean cruise - day 4

We are at sea days 1-4. Low seas, but bothersome to a few people. Beautiful sunsets.

Caribbean cruise - day 2

Day 1. Nice bus ride to the Baltimore cruise terminal, arriving at 10:30am. Boarded the ship, Enchantment of the Seas, at 1:45pm. Salt crystals on the deck because of possible ice. Great lunch, but crowded because all people are eating at nearly the same time. Emergency drill at 3:30pm, prior to leaving the pier. Dancing-singing entertainment plus comedian in the evening after a nice dinner.

Day 2. Sailed out of the Chesapeake Bay at 12:30am. Warmer and partially cloudy. Formal dinner this evening.
