Day Four – St Maarten

Ok so the day dawned somewhat brightish and earlyish, we were docking in St Maarten.

We had decided on breakfast at the enchanted garden at 9am.

Breakfast was surprisingly a buffet ha-ha,  during which our waiter spilled a glass of water all over our table we all had good giggle and after breakfast spent a few hours chilling on board, this was because we had booked a tour but it wasn’t due to start till 12:30pm. So at around 11:45am we made our way through to the Buena Vista Theatre to await our briefing.

We arrived nice and early and spent around 20 minutes waiting for everyone else to arrive. We had booked the Under 2 Flags tour which was $29.00 per person and took us on a coach tour around both sides of the island. We stopped at a market place where we perused all the token souvenirs and bags and what not. We even chanced a look inside the mall, which was filled with various expensive stores with nothing overly interesting. I purchased some post cards for my collection.

We decided we were thirsty and so we stopped at a juice bar for some fresh fruit juice. Kat got a vitamin C juice which was deliciously tart as it had no added sugar. I had an island blend and Christopher had a Pina colada smoothie – no alcohol added. After which we boarded the bus again and headed for the rest of the tour.

mhmmmmm all of the ice cream Flavours

Our last stop before the ship was at a famous carousel and Italian ice-cream shop. We all had a free go on the carousel and a scoop of ice cream, there were so many flavours it was really hard to choose but they let us taste a couple first. I ended up with a Bounty flavor, which tasted just like bounty chocolate bars.

After half an hour there we were dropped back at the port. Chris and Kat headed back to the ship and Michael and I window shopped at the port side shopping for around an hour.

i just want to apologize that none of these photos are in order.

Day four was pirate night, there was a lot of commotion happening with dance parties and pirates of the Caribbean themed shows and even fireworks. We had dinner at animator’s palate for the first time since we had eaten at Palo on the first night instead.

I must say that out of all the menus this was the one I was least interested in.

After the fireworks there was a dessert buffet at cabanas but it was also a bit average.
