Default LIVE post from Destiny-schedule change due to Emily

I am posting live while sailing the Destiny. We arrived at 5am in Barbados to allow passengers who started there to disembark. We were then rescheduled to go to Curacau and Aruba. At 8am Capt. for our safety changed route now to Antigua and St. Martin to avoid Emily storm/hurricaine.
More info as I post later.
Anyone know of recommended activities in Antigua or St. Martin.

Suzy - in St. Maarten if you can book an excursion on the Golden Eagle Catamaran sail that's a blast- you sail up the coast - which is gorgeous over to a small island preseve where you can swim, snorkel, relax on the beach, food & drink provided. Its fun and relaxing at the same time, there is dancing and champagne on the way home, a toast to a successfully completed voyage!. Another fun thing to do in St.Maarten is the America's Cup Regatta - you sail an actual racing yacht in a race, you can choose to crew the boat if you like or you can just sit back and enjoy the fun.You have to book either of these excursions with the ship. THey don't book independantely
Beach and shopping are also great in St. Maarten. Orient Beach is the most popular with the most "stuff" going on, just know that the far end of the beach is "clothing optional" its clearly marked. Shopping is duty free and the prices are very good

Thank you for this timely and great information Suzy! In Antigua take a tour to the Nelsons Boatyard and Shirley Hieghts. We went on our own taking a cab to the Boatyard and then taking a taxi and asking him to take us around the Island. Have fun and stay safe!
Jim
