Bridgetown, Barbados

With a high speed run up from Trinidad our arrival time at the pilot was set for 10am this morning. We duly collected our pilot and made our way into the inner harbour at Bridgetown, as we did however we were greeted with something of a deluge as the heaven’s opened. Our pilot smiled and said in his wonderful Bajan accent ‘don’t worry Cap it’s only a bit of liquid sunshine!’ He was most probably smiling as he had opted to remain in the shelter of the Bridge, allowing the Staff Captain and myself to bear the brunt of Mother Nature, necessitating a change of clothing shortly afterwards…..

Nevertheless we made all fast in good time and our gangway was duly landed allowing the prompt departure of our tours. On offer today was a Catamaran Turtle Encounter, Harrisons Cave Experience, Hunte’s Garden and a Taste of Barbados, something for every taste.

A later arrival meant a later departure and as the sun set we welcomed our passengers onto the Verandah deck aft for an evening of ‘Dancing Under the Stars’ featuring local Barbados Musicians and then the chance to dance the night away with music from the Saga Orchestra, Explosive Vocalists and our on board Radio Presenter, David Wimble. The perfect end to a perfect Caribbean day.
