Ponta Delgada
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Short stop here - 08:30 - 14:00. Ship berthed on main promenade. Did a little research, and after walking through the town, visited the Botanical Gardens - excellent. After a pleasand hour walked back into town, and sampled a local coffee shop. Did a little shopping, and the settled in a promanade fronted Cafe Bar.

Walked into Bridgetown ( been before on at least 15 occassions). Did a little shopping - other half Land Leather fan), had a coffee on the Carnagie, before entering the Beach Club. Excellent place to spend the day - half decent beach, with lots to do.

Bar was good, food was probably best descirbed as adequate - had much better on other islands.Used the complementary transfer back to ship.

Overall a good day.

Barbados does tend to be quite expensive.

Took a taxi to Royal St Lucian - 11 Dollars per person.

Good day on the beach lunched in the local beach bar - excellent food. Piton Lager highly recommended.

Unfortuately Arcadia docked on the town side of the harbour - Shopping is pretty poor there.

I Love St Maarten.

This island has lots - brilliant shopping - great bars - beaches, and decent and tasty food.

Spent the morning shopping, spent money but also saved a lot.

The took a taxi to Maho beach to watch the airliners land - sat on the terrace of the Sunset Bay Beach Bar.. as they say the Crac was good.

Another geat place.

Took the excursion to Virgin Gorda, the transportation had greatly improved, now a modern catarmaran ferry - still wnet very fast.

Good morning spend in paradise.

The back to Tortola and time to visit Pussers for Lunch - Excellent food.

Strolled around the town, the back to Arcadia for the crossing to the UK
