On Wednesday we were scheduled to arrive at St. Kitts in the morning. We met for breakfast at 8 in the buffet and then went out on the helipad to watch the ship arrive at the dock. I had an excursion scheduled to leave at 10:45 so I headed off the ship and walked around the pier area until it was time to line up. The excursion I chose was called Scenes of St. Kitts and it was a driving tour of the island. Our driver's name was Winston and he told us lots of interesting information about St. Kitts as we drove around. We had three stops on the tour: FairView Great House, Romney Manor, and a hilltop view of the island where you can see the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean at the same time.
The tour was done at about 1pm so I decided to walk around the pier area, which is basically just a bunch of jewelry stores. I went into a few stores and ended up buying two pieces of jewelry, a ring and a necklace, both made of aquamarine and diamonds. I had been looking for aquamarine jewelry for about five years and had never found something I fell in love with, so I was happy to find two pieces that were exactly what I was looking for.
By the time I was done shopping I was ready for a shower. Once I was cleaned off I felt like a new person! I got dressed for dinner and met everyone in the dining room. We sat in the same section with our favorite waitstaff. I had the stuffed shells, which was probably the best entree I had the whole trip. When we were done eating we went up to the library to play some Phase 10 before the Elton John tribute show. I skipped the show and went to the casino, where I lost more money. This was by far the worst I've ever done gambling on a ship, so at that point I decided to just stop wasting my money and stay away from the casino!
Once the guys were done watching the Elton John show I grabbed an espresso martini (which was good, but not worth the $15) and grabbed a table in the library for more Phase 10. We finished our game by 10pm and I won my second game in a row! At that point the others headed to bed, but thanks to my espresso martini I was nowhere ready for bed! I put on my bathing suit and headed up to the hot tub. I relaxed for a while in the Solarium and then went back to my room to hang out on my balcony. I could hear the music from the pool deck, so lounging on my balcony with a glass of wine was a nice way to end the night. I went to bed at 11:30.
Stay tuned for day 7, our last port day of the trip!
