Sugar And Spice And Everything Nice in Grenada
Monday, December 14, 2015
It’s official: I’m having excellent sleeps here aboard Star Clippers’ Royal Clipper, which gently rocks me to sleep each and every night. Our sea conditions were not nearly as heavy last night as they were upon our departure from Barbados, which meant far less rolling and much calmer seas. From conversations with the crew, it seems that on these runs sea conditions are heaviest on the first and last evenings of the cruise, as the ship makes her way to and from Bridgetown.
Today, we have another relaxing morning of sailing the warm Caribbean Sea before our arrival in St. George’s, Grenada at Noon. And that seems like the perfect opportunity for us to take a virtual stroll around the decks of the beautiful Royal Clipper!
Captain Nemo’s Spa & Gym
Have you ever wondered if you’re below the waterline of your ship? Wonder no more: Captain Nemo’s Spa and Gym aboard the Royal Clipper is most definitely below the waterline – and Star Clippers isn’t shy about letting you know. The room, which is accessible via the forward spiral staircase that spans Commodore and Clipper Decks, is located one deck below Commodore Deck and is lit via a series of portholes mounted deep beneath the hull of the ship. These look out onto – you guessed it – the sea.
