Prime 7 Dinner
We enjoyed dinner with our bridge instructors, Michael and Cassandra, on the way to Barbados.
During our sail toward Barbados we enjoyed a nice dinner at Prime 7 with our bridge instructors, Michael and Cassandra. We have appreciated the difference in their teaching styles compared to Roseanne.
After four days at sea, we docked at Bridgetown at 9:00am today and will set sail again this evening at 6:00. The Bridgetown Port (or “Deep Water Harbor” as its also known) is the major port of entry for cruise and cargo ships docking in Barbados. The Harbor port acts as one of the major shipping and transshipment hubs from international locations for the entire Eastern Caribbean. Recently the Bridgetown Port was dredged to allow the safe access and berthing for the new league of “super cruise ships”. It can now host many of the largest cruise ships in the world. They are also in the midst of greatly expanding the size of their harbor.

Barbadians (Bajans) are a warm, friendly, and hospitable people, who are genuinely proud of their country and culture. Although tourism is important to the island, there is a sophisticated business community and stable government.
We were scheduled for a tour of the island and weren’t disappointed.
