Spanish Virgin Islands Cruise on the Arabella
We embarked to the Spanish Virgin Islands on the Arabella. This was the most relaxing cruise we have ever had.
Never plan ahead on timing of Airlines. The schedule will change the day before.The flight was full with a bumpy ride the last hour. Taking the escalator to the next concourse my carry-on suitcase fell back and caused me to tumble upside down. I quickly reversed my direction and continued on my way. We foraged for pizza during the interim …
A beautiful sunny morning greets us for a sail past the island of St. John. A large breakfast of omelets, bacon, rolls, fruit are served at 8am. Coffee and assorted rolls and bread were ready at 6am. We manage a 5 1/2 hour sail to Esperanza Vieques,Puerto Rico (Spanish Virgin Islands), 7 miles east of Puerto Rico. The island was once used for …
The night is disturbed by the sloshing of water under the cabin. At one point I wake up to check if there is water rushing over the floor. The water tanks are under cabins 15 & 16. A morning sail through rain begins the day.
After lunch we dropped anchor in a cove off Isle Culebrita, sometime called snake island. This is one of the oldest …

We arrive at Norman Island by 11am. The ship anchors near the Indians outcropping of rocks. Swimmers swim to the caves. An alternative is the white sandy …
Today is Holly’s (crew member) birthday. A slow cruise on a cloudy day is perfect for passengers to gather on deck and converse. The topic of conversation is boating. Rental of catamarans are now sail-less for beginner sailors. We are a very amiable group. We enter White Bay, Jost Van Dyke. The shadows cast by the sails lessen the effects …
At the crack of dawn we are ready to pack. Luggage must be out of the cabin by 7:30am. We sail to Cruz Bay, St John for a simple customs check and continue to Red Hook, St. Thomas. The crew and passengers gather for a last minute photo. Taxi’s are waiting at the dock. We wave goodbye to each dingy of departing passengers. For $30 the …
It rained all night. There’s a lull between showers and we walk to the airport and check in at 6:00 am. Security checks our shoes. We need to go through customs again. We have tickets for first class, priority boarding. This is an excellent way to end a vacation. Food is served with real utensils, china cups and plates. Food is very good. …
