The Brooks joined us and others for a 30 min cab ride to Red Hook . $30 per couple. We are on time, 3:30pm, to board the Arabella. The crew greeted us and remembered us from to our cruise in December. We settle in our cabin 16, the largest on board. Debbie becomes captain in place of Sandy and lectures on the proceedings of the trip.
We sail into Caneel Bay, St. John for dinner at the Equator at Sugar Mill overlookinig the bay. The wooden structure is a modern version of an open umbrella with ribs of beams holding up the roof. The ruins of the sugar mills are silhouetted against the sunset. Wonderful meal of selected dishes similar to our first dining experience.
