On our fourth day, we arrived in Saint Thomas. We chose to reserve the Catamaran Sail and Beach Club excursion that departs at 11 am for four hours so we can snorkel and hopefully see a few sea turtles again. Today is also the new Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Party at Sea. Our kids LOVE the Mickey Mouse short cartoons, so I am expecting this to be a HUGE hit with our family- assuming we are back onboard to see it.
The views from our balcony this morning were breathtaking…
After another late breakfast in Cabanas, we headed to D Lounge and off the ship on a quick walk to a 53-foot Gold Coast sailing catamaran. After we were briefed on the catamaran’s safety features- we sailed about 45 minutes around the southern side of St. Thomas passing historical Hassel Island onto Water Island. We spent 2 hours here lounging in the sun, swimming and snorkeling. We did see a sea turtle here as well- but not as many brightly colored fish as we saw in Tortola.
Back onboard, we headed to Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Party at Sea for a few treats! It was cute, very quick and seemed to be a nice way to welcome everyone back on board.
It’s worth noting- The Tube’s bar is open during ths hour for both non alcoholic and alcoholic beverages. Personally, I highly recoment the Johnston- Godiva Cholocate Liqueur, Frangelico, Baileys, Kahlua, and Honey.
Mikey was a huge fan of their Shirley Temples 😉
We then ordered The New York Strip Steak for dinner:
For dessert, we ordered a strawberry and cream tower:
Crème Brulee Cheesecake:
After dinner, we headed to D Lounge to the Saludos Amigos Fiesta Dance Party!
It was another very long day but we had so much fun! Time for bed to rest up for another busy sea day tomorrow!
