The ship’s first stop was Wednesday morning at Guernsey, an island in the Channel between France and England – but much closer to France. It actually has a very interesting history of being a territory of France, Great Britain, Germany in World War II, and then back to Great Britain. After taking a water taxi (tender) ride from the ship to the waterfront, Ray and Traci walked to Castle Cornet. They did not know anything about it except it was a castle. Three hours later they knew quite a bit. Castle Cornet is a military fort on the shoreline of Guernsey, built, destroyed, rebuilt, and refortified over the years to protect Guernsey. Cannons from the distant past decorate the seawalls, and visitors are treated to an actual cannon firing at noon daily. German bunkers built into the walls bearing traditional German female names once housed anti-aircraft guns. The complex now houses several museums dedicated to the castle’s history, militia and infantry battles, and a Royal Air Force squadron once stationed on Guernsey. If that wasn’t enough, 16th century herb and pleasure gardens are also seen. To finish off the visit, Ray and Traci listened to a resident who was in Guernsey as a child during the German occupation and brought the era to life with his stories. Castle Cornet was one of the very few attractions that Ray and Traci have visited with what seemed like an extraordinarily low price (10 pounds to enter). Having spent much of their limited time at Castle Cornet, they returned to the tender line for the ride back to the ship. Read Less

This is for the history buff. A fantastic step back in time to the days of the world wars and centuries before that. Loved the cannon blast daily at noon. That was fun to watch.

Not a duty free port, as I was led to believe. Nice the islanders welcoming you to their home. Shops same as at home.

Loved it here, surprisingly beautiful and so much fun just walking around. Lots of shopping. We took a bus to the German Occupation Museum--worth it. We would go back to Guernsey.

Town was really interesting to explore. If a member of a yacht club, recommend a stop at the Guernsey Yacht Club which is near the fort. Wonderful folks there, great food, and you will see the kids in action sailing in their own pool.
