1.1.17 A disappointing start

1.1.17 A disappointing start

We were supposed to dock in Virgin Gorda today. It was one of the reasons we chose this cruise since visiting the Baths is on my bucket list. Heavy winds kept us from leaving St Kitts. The winds were too strong for the side thrusters on the ship so it couldn't get off the dock. The weather report didn't have any improvements and the Captain got very worried about getting back to Miami. Since it was New Year's Eve, the Captain had a very hard time getting help from the dock so he went and knocked on the door of a tug boat in port to see if he would help pull the boat out if the winds died down a little before sunrise. And it worked.

It meant no port but at least we'll make it back to Miami on time. I had a rough day with seasickness so I spent most of the day in bed. We have two more Sea Days so hopefully I'll feel better.
