12.31.16 Nevis

12.31.16 Nevis

We pulled into St Kitts this morning and had another breakfast on the balcony. We really like having a large table out there.

We decided to take an excursion to Nevis since we've been to St Kitts before. The weather was windy with on and off showers. The boat ride over was very windy. The captain did a great job avoiding the rain showers. At the Nevis pier, we split up in groups of 8 to tour the island. We stopped at a historic bath house to put our feet in the hot springs. We passed by Alexander Hamilton's home. We stopped at Nesbit Plantation House and saw the gorgeous Four Seasons golf course plus a church from the 1600s. It was a great island tour. We were surprised to see so many old buildings, but they were built from bricks made from the volcanic soil.  The end was a 2 hour beach break at Lime. It's a restaurant where had some amazing grouper and Caribe beer. The weather was too rainy to hang out at the beach.

We took the ferry back and then got ready for White Night/ New Year's Eve. We had dinner in the dining room. It was surf and turf of the standard cruise variety. We headed up the Living Room to hang with some of our new cruise friends. We were very impressed that the crew transformed the pool deck. All the chaises were replaced with tables and chairs.  A local group came on board to dance. Then the Azamara orchestra, dancers, and singers put on a show leading to midnight. It was great!! We had so much fun. They had the ice sculptures of the old year, knocked off the six and added the seven. We headed to bed shortly after midnight since we had an early excursion in the morning.
