The holiday got off to a dissapointing start when our flight was delayed because of an outage with the baggage belt supply at Gatwick.
After just over 2 hours we finally took off.
The service was very slow on Thomas Cook flight. As usual they do not regard themselves as in the service industry but are "inflight safety officers".
St lucia is a dirty dump. Do not go for a walk around the port. Avoid it at all costs, and take trip and see some of the islands better points.
This is a very nice place with nice people, as most of the Carribean used to be. You can shop safely around the abundance of shops or get a taxi to one of the good beaches which are not far at all at a reasonably cheap cost.
I wish we could have had longer there.
The port itself is not very nice, but there are some good trips to be taken. We opted for a catermaran sail, with snorkelling and beach visit. It was well worth it. The staff on the cat were fun and friendly, and the fish were amazing.
