Caribbean: St. Thomas, USVI

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

Wasn’t sure what we planned to do today in St. Thomas. Thought about snorkeling off of a beach near the port but was not sure that the place was still open. Will have to do more research before we come back in December.

Got up at 7:30 and went for coffee. We were already docked and people were getting off. All aboard is at 4:30 today. We decided to have breakfast in the main dining room even though it wasn’t a Brunch day. I had the French toast which was very good but I was not a fan of the weird sauce-covered bananas.

Since we docked at a different port than the last time, we decided to walk around and see what was happening. Different dock – same stores. The humidity was already very high at 10:00 so we didn’t last long.

Came back and decided to play some mini golf up on the 12th floor. Fairly challenging holes. Not busy on a port day. Heat and humidity still a problem as there wasn’t even a small breeze. I won by 4 strokes. I’m sure we’ll have a rematch on the next leg of this cruise.

The pool was not crowded so we got our stuff and found a couple of loungers and bobbed around in the pool for a while. If it is not too crowded, you can float but mostly people just stand around and bob. The deepest is 4 ½ feet.

We took a break from our busy pool time to eat some lunch and then we felt the need to go back in the pool. We were so worn out from this adventurous day that we came back to the room and took a nap.

The evening brought some time at the Alchemy Bar, a winning slot session at the Casino, dinner in the main dining room, and more slot play.

The show tonight in the Showtime Lounge was Country Roads. In the past, it has not been a favorite of mine so I almost didn’t go. But they have modernized it and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

We attended the Eighties Deck Party and listened to the music for a while. Then they started with the games so we called it a night.

Tonight’s towel animal: a scorpion.
