Leaving St Lucia
At dusk I watched more planes at the airport.
The Captain told us that the ship would be spinning in the harbour basin before leaving port. By now it was quite dark.
While we watched the ship spin, the immigration forms and our airline tickets arrived. We decided that they could wait a while before we filled the forms in. Planes continued to take-off from the airport.
One the ship had spun we slowly left Castries harbour.
Dinner was Thai shrimp parcels, chorizo and bean soup again, Bajun chicken and finally three scoops of honey and ginger ice cream.
From the Captain’s Log
Our arrival into Castries was completed at 08:04.
Azura tied up Port Side to Quay at the Pointe
Seraphine berth to the north of the city. Castries is located on the west side of the island of St. Lucia and serves as the capital of the country. At 08:06 guests were cleared for disembarkation from the Deck 4 gangways.
All on board time was set for 18:00, offering guests the opportunity for an extended trip ashore. Upon confirmation that all guests and crew were safely on board and that all of the pre-departure checks were complete the Safety Officer began the process of thrusting the vessel off the berth. Once Azura had cleared the quay she entered her swing circle and was brought to a westerly heading, she then steam out of the bay and into the Caribbean Sea heading for her next port of call.
