Does anyone know why the Noordam shows two stops in St. Lucia on 1/27/09? The itinerary lists Castries, St. Lucia from 8-3 and then Soufriere, St Lucia from 5-6. Are you able to re-board the ship from either location (and are they close together)? I noticed a longer island tour and I was wondering if maybe that tour ended in Soufriere rather than Castries.

Hi there. It's about 25 miles by road from Castries to Souffriere. I would guess that one of the tours that the ship offers would end up at Souffriere. Whether you can do that with a private tour I wouldn't know.

That is exactly why...... to pick up guests who went on the ship's tour.

All of Hal's cruises that stop in St Lucia dock at Casteries then leave for Soufriere around 3:00.. I have been there 3 times.

No, you cannot board in Soufriere from a private tour. Only those on a ship tour that ends in Soufierre can do this. The ship does not dock, the pax on the tour are brought out to the ship by a tender.

When the ship leaves Castries and sails to Soufriere the view of the Pitons is awesome. Make sure you have your camera ready. :)

Thanks for the information. I imagine we'll do the ships excursion(s) most likely. It's a long ways off, but I am already thinking about what to do for the port days. :)

Good information. Thank you. I'll be going to St. Lucia in April so I'll make sure I'm out on deck for this.

Thanks for this information. I meant to mention this in my earlier post. I've got a "must do" list going, and I added this to the list. :) I'm just giddy with excitement today. I even went out in the snow to see our TA today. I did leave a message on her machine (yesterday) and she called me bright and early today.
