St; Thomas, Carnival Destiny, Feb. 12, 2007
St. Thomas was nice enough. It was the first stop of a 7-day cruise to the Southern Caribbean, so I don't remember a whole lot. We found a local bar that measured the amount of Coca-Cola mixed into the glass but yet allowed us to pour as much rum as we wanted. We stayed there for a while, you can be sure.
However, the best part of our visit to St. Thomas was when we were leaving. We were hanging out on our balcony as the cruise ship pulled away from the dock. Then it happened and we caught it all on video...
Take a look. It's funny - you'll have a good time.
Anyway, we visited 7 different islands on that cruise - Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. John, Dominica, Barbados, St. Lucia and Antigua.
I really enjoyed Dominica (Dom-in-EEK-a). It's mostly rainforest and my friend & I took a tough little hike to Trafalgar Falls (photo). We also saw a school bus crushed by a tree that fell during Hurricane David in 1979 (photo).
But we'll never forget the guy that almost missed his date with Destiny.
