Day 8 Friday Antigua - Saint John´s (6 hours)

The ship stops at the pier of Saint John´s centre. There are lots of pre advertised jewellery shops built just for tourists at the harbour. Antigua is the only island on the cruise where East Caribbean Dollars are accepted along with US Dollars.  We walk along the streets lined with nicely painted wooden houses to St John´s Cathedral on the hill but it is closed for restoration.

We find a marvellous shop called “Island Creations” on #3 Redcliffe Quay (phone 268 562 4160) where also big sized dresses made of batik fabric are sold. We buy 2 dresses and one shirt.

In the harbour pier there is a charter sailing boat named Black Pearl. The Costa Mediterranea crew is constantly maintaining the ship in shape – the anchor is being painted.
