After our wonderful cruise, life hit us again full blast. Regardless, the memories of our cruise and the various stops we made continue to linger!
Never having been on a cruise before, there were many unknowns and uncertainties, especially around the expeditions we planned on our own. Our adventure on St. Lucia was one of those.
We figured we would be riding in a bus or van with a group of people. We felt pampered with the private guide and vehicle! The focused attention given us made the tour very enjoyable, unique and memorable. Our guide Sammy (I believe that was his name! Spelling may be off!) did an excellent job of customizing the tour to our desires, while making sure we got a taste of the real St. Lucia (pun not originally intended!) that he thought was important and that you wouldn't get with a typical group tour. It certainly was not your typical, superficial, Americanized tour that does not get you in touch with the culture! We met some of his friends, were shown and allowed to experience some of the culture and local foods, and were educated as to some background, history and stories around many of the sights.
We were pleased with the tour, and definitely felt that we got our money's worth!
