osuzycruz Posted May 29, 2004 #1 Share Posted May 29, 2004 My family and I just returned from our first ever cruise, and we can't wait to go again. The highlight of the trip was the island of St Thomas, thanks to Interlinesail.com We booked a half day sail with them, and it was without doubt the best day of our entire shore excursions. The crew ( Captain Larry and First Mate Betty) met us at Red Hook exactly as planned (we were apprehensive but should not have been). We sailed from St Thomas to a wonderful secluded cove where we swam and snorkled for almost 3 hours. Fish were everywhere, and we even saw a Ray! We then took a gentle scenic sail around the area, as Betty pointed out the sights, including a sailboat beached on a small island! We saw the new Ritz Carlton club, and some beautiful island resort homes (out of our price range, but beautiful to dream) as we enjoyed our rum punch and fruit snack. Then we had another tour of the Red Hook harbour via the dingy ride into the dock- there were yachts from every corner of the world just bobbing in the water. Our only complaint is that the day was too short, but the half-day sail did give us plenty of time to do some shopping at the dock stores- I think I bought a Tee shirt at every store. Plan to post our pictures soon, if anyone would like to see our day by day journal of the entire cruise. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
