12.30.16 Antigua


We started the day with a good breakfast in the dining room. I had a tuna melt omelet which tasted just like a tuna melt. We played morning trivia and lost terribly.
Our tour left at 10:45 am.

We joined 11 other people for a cooking class at Nicole's Table. The class is hled at her home on the top of a hill with a gorgeous view of the harbor. We made snapper, green and ripe plantains, shrimp wontons, rice and beans, and a coconut tart. It was a great fun class. It was more expensive to book through the cruise line, but we were glad we did. The two women who booked separately had a little trouble finding a taxi who knew where her house was.

We came back to the ship and enjoyed some cocktails in the Living Room. Then it was time to get ready for the special event. Each cruise, Azamara hosts a special event on shore for everyone cruising. Our event was a party at the Governor's House. It was incredible. We had police escorts through town. A huge tent was set up and we met the Governor. They had a great steel drum band, cocktails and appetizers of local food. The highlight was a band that had played for Prince Harry. Most people sat in chairs on the lawn. Glenn and I found a high table with a view. We danced the night away. I think we were the only ones dancing. We couldn't help it! The music was so good!! Then we enjoyed one of the longest fireworks displays we have ever seen.

When we got back to the ship, the taxi took us right to the door where waiters were waiting with glasses of champagne and the band was playing. So much fun! We went straight to karaoke and had a blast. Glenn sang three songs and during Fly Me to The Moon - a couple got up to dance. A very very fun night.
