We had a lovely sail into Crown Bay, the old submarine base outside Charlotte Amalie….. Ann, Cathy & I hooked a taxi to town and got there before the stores opened. We ended up walking over to the Havensight side and took the cable car up to Paradise Point for some spectacular views. Had my photo taken up there with some lovely parrots… very cool! We then headed back to town and spent some time in the shops. On the way back to Crown Bay we went up the mountain to take some photos of the Queen Mary 2 alongside the ms Amsterdam, a bit of a size difference. Once back I spent some more time in the shops and checking out all the iguanas that live in the rocks by the harbor….. We had a wonderful taxi driver on the way back to the ship, Mr. Vincent Vanterpool, 340-776-3248, email@example.com. In a city where a fair number of the taxi drivers are a bit difficult, it is nice to come across a real gentleman…… Cocktail party tonight with the Captain & Hotel Director, my friends will be there so it should be a lot of fun!
