Embarkation:

 

30 to 40 people waiting under a white tent waiting for St Maarten immigration. Started taking 6 people at a time after immigration on a shuttle to ship. actually started at 11:45am.

 

Shuttled to the ship. 
 

Once on the ship.

Covid test by the Doctor. Nasal swab not inserted too far. 
Glass of sparkling wine. 

Then, check in presenting cc . Got room cards. 
 

then spa table. 
 

then restaurant reservations . Allowed one at charro and one at candles. Once everyone is reserved you can waitlist. We are WL for candles. 
 

exhausted at this point . Most people were brain dead from travel yet still chatty. some were sleeping sitting in their chair. 

 

we did Candles on Saturday, then Amphora on Sunday. Both meals outstanding. 
 

133 passengers on board. 
 

During dinner our waiter said “I have been waiting for this moment for so long. “. As he looked at dining room full of people.

Wesport - Thanks for the report and love getting to see the daily planner!!!  We are on in 2 weeks, so it is great to have this preview!  We have not gotten our itinerary changes yet, but expect that to happen soon, since the numbers continue to be high in the BVIs.  Have a wonderful cruise!

Internet tip. We have T-Mobile so in port we get data. I did buy the surf package 500mb when at sea and evenings. I found my iPad burned through data. Posted a couple pics and used 50 mb the first log in. Better to use your phone . Lasts longer.

Has Windstar been able to organize a beach day (not excursion, but a beach day where they bring the water toys out?)

Not yet, but tomorrow is the beach bbq at pigeon island

Thanks for the update.  We are scheduled to be on the 14 Night from St. Maarten to Barbados on the 31st.

Is the Amphora Restaurant open every evening?  Apparently it was only open 2-3 nights on the previous cruise.

 

Have fun!

Pigeon Island, a free beach day!!!  Yeah!   Were you allowed to walk around the park?

Yes . Mask free. Could not go past guard shack but it was a large area. Lunch was spectacular. Over the top.

Looks wonderful!  Do you have to wear masks on deck?

 

They are pretty strict about masking up, but around the pool. If you are by yourself most people take them off. At pigeon island we did not have to wear them. We are getting tested tomorrow in order to go to Antigua. We will be tested before getting off in st Maarten. Can use that test to get to the USA. They will be refunding our 49 dollars as they have to rest us to enter st Maarten. The 49 is what we paid for  the antigen test last week.

If you have the beverage package does it cover drinks at the beach?  Thanks for the awesome posting!

Internet is painfully slow. I bought 500 mb. Used 400 in just 4 days. Recommend unlimited if you want to have access for full week.I am also using my T-Mobile when in port.

St lucia today. Shore excursions or we are allowed to walk around port area. 

Were you at the downtown pier or the Point Seraphine pier across the bay from downtown?  Your comment must mean you were not allowed to go outside the port gates, is that correct?
