Back from our cruise with Fred Olsen on MS Braemar and the warm sea and sand are just a memory- but the new islands we visited were, for the most part, a delight. St Kitts we liked a lot, having already done the iconic railway we enjoyed the town, visited an estate house and really enjoyed conch soup and grilled prawns sitting on a wraparound balcony watching the world go on by – that is the joy of cruising, dip in and out and decide which you want to return to and which not. In our case we have always loved Antigua so a stay at Nelsons Dockyard is on the list while St Maartens isn’t – too many designer shops and diamond emporiums and no sense of anyone actually living, buying food and inhabiting the place – but, of course, to some cruisers it is their ideal port of call. Cant wait for my next cruise – luckily only have to wait to July, The Faroes, Norway and Iceland – methinks I won’t be snorkelling!
