Day 1 Road Town, Tortola / Embark
Following breakfast at your hotel and make your way to Village Cay Marina where you will board the Arabella. The ship is too deep to come all the way in to the marina, so she sits at anchor outside the harbor, awaiting your arrival. Arrive at the marina between 8 and 10 AM, where the ship's crew can deliver you and your bags to the ship. Settle in to your cabin and meet your captain and crew.
Hoist anchor and set sail as you begin your adventure. If the weather permits, sail up the Baths to anchor and swim or snorkel in the clear Caribbean waters.
