Day 6 St. Lucia

St. Lucia was the reason that we had booked this particular cruise. I had heard many people say how amazing this island was, so I was super excited about going here. We had booked a dolphin and whale watch safari trip. The morning had started off with rain, but I was hopeful that it would get better. We met up with the tour guides that were taking us on this trip. We got onto a boat and set off. I ended up being very disappointed very quickly. The guides had said there was a cooler of 2 liter drinks on floor and cups on the counter. They were not the crew that we had in St. Thomas that was for sure! We hardly saw them the whole time we were on the boat. They were on the upper deck for most of the trip. Needless to say, the rain came back. I had packed our ponchos so we put those on so we wouldn't be soaked. We ended up seeing 2 dolphins at the end of the trip. We did get to see the The Pitons of St. Lucia. The scenery was very pretty on the way home, but I feel like we really didn't see a lot of St. Lucia unfortunately. We were not pleased with this tour at all, and really regretted wasting our day with it. So, one bad day on the trip.

We did end up having a good evening though. We had a great dinner and saw a couple of good comedians on the boat.
