Smile How was it?

Love to hear from you December travelers on the Royal Clipper.

We leave March 31... How was it?

Question... how much were the on board drinks? What currancy did they use on board?

Love to here about the Ports and excursions.

Thanks for reply.

Larry

Larry -

We had a wonderful trip.... The weather was great all week long.
I really got into the sailing aspect of the ship; most of the time you could find me up near the bridge watching what was going on. (I liked t so much that I booked the transatlantic from Lisbon to Barbados this fall!)


The Euro is used on board for all purchases; No cash; everything s put on your shipboard account. cokes run about 2 euros; I think the virgin drinks were 4-5 euros. I didn't buy anything stronger.

In St. Lucia we did the zip line excursion. That was a lot of fun.

In Dominica, I walked up to the fort located in Cabritz National Park; It offers excellent views of the bay and ship below.

In Antigua, we walked over to Nelson's Dockyard in English harbor. It's a wonderful collection of old buildings, both restored and repurposed.

In St. Kitts we enjoyed the train excurson.

In Isles Des Saints we walked around the town and had lunch.

In Martinique my wife took the bus tour of the city and I spent about 2 hours walking through the town...

Enjoy your cruise!

Aloha,

john
