We arrived this morning at 9:30 AM in Barbados. We did not have to be back at the ship until 6:00 PM. So we were planning on a long, relaxing day at the beach. We went to the Blue Monkey. This is the beach that the Taxi Drivers recommend. Of course this beach is overcrowded with all of the people on the cruise ships. We had The Carnival Destiny and the Cunard Queen Mary 2 in port with us. After about 1 hour at the beach it started pouring down rain. After an hour of rain we headed back to the Ship Terminal for some shopping. It rained all day, so after shopping we went bowling on the Pearl. The crew members we talked to while bowling recommended Malibu Beach on Barbados. Unfortunately, due to the rain my only recommendation in Barbados is not to go to the beach in front of the Blue Monkey.
We had a blast bowling, ate early, and went to see the best show I have seen at on a cruise ship. The show is a two team comedy juggling act named Sharkbait. Very funny and thouroughly entertaining. I am not a big “show” guy on cruises. But on the Pearl, I have been impressed and entertain by the entertainment.
Jess is playing Bingo right now…. I need to go see if we are $10,000 richer. We are hoping for better weather tomorrow in St. Lucia…but if not I am sure we will find something fun to do. ~happy sailing!
