Caribbean Cruise - Ponta Delgada

On the 25th day after leaving Southampton we make our final stop on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores, one of two Autonomous Regions of Portugal, along with Madeira, where we made our first stop. It consists of nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean about 850 miles west of continental Portugal, and about 1,196 miles southeast of Newfoundland, Canada.

Our port of call was Ponta Delgada an old town of characteristic narrow roads, and winding cobbled streets. The buildings are whitewashed with wooden balconies, the streets and squares are paved with mosaics and ornate churches decorate almost every street.

Caribbean Cruise - Tortola

Our penultimate stop on our Caribbean Cruise was Road Town, the capital of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. With five very full days behind us, we decided to make this a day of rest! We travelled out to Cane Garden Bay, on the north shore of Tortola, about 5 miles west of Road Town, where we spent most of our day in a deck chair on the beach, with the occasional dip in the warm waters of the Caribbean.

The fourth island we visited on our cruise was St. Kitts, the classic Caribbean island with a mixture of deserted beaches, sleepy villages, lush rainforests and sugarcane fields and a mini mountain range with a dormant volcano in its midst.

Along with the island of Nevis, it is also known as the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis. It is a country located in the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles, and is the smallest sovereign state in the Western Hemisphere, in both area and population, and is a member of the British Commonwealth.
