Esmeralda Resort St. Martin – A Tranquil Beachside Retreat

Here it is a few weeks since our stay at The Esmeralda Resort on the French-side of St. Martin, and I’m still feeling it’s relaxed vibe. This hotel is a fantastic choice for folks who want to slip away for a peaceful vacation that’s only steps away from the excitement of Orient Beach.

Sonesta St. Maarten Hotels – A Room For Every Taste and Budget

Sonesta St. Maarten Hotels – A Room For Every Taste and Budget

I’m just back from a great trip to St. Maarten where I experienced BOTH of the popular Sonesta Hotels; the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and the Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort. (Both on Dutch side). The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and Casino is conveniently located right next to the airport – you’ll be checking in minutes after clearing customs. The hotel has a city feel, although once inside the resort, you’ll find all the tropical amenities you would expect from a beach resort.

Star Clipper Cruise Review – Antigua and St. Barts

As we pull close to Antigua, here finally are the aquamarine waters that I associate with Caribbean waters.

Star Clipper Cruise Review – Guadeloupe

We’ve all had a great day in Iles des Saintes and are looking forward to the short sail over to Guadeloupe.  Guadeloupe is a volcanic island shaped like a butterfly.  The larger western side has high peaks and dense rainforests and is an important agricultural growing region in the Caribbean.  The eastern ‘wing’ is primarily […]

Star Clipper Review – Lovely Port of Iles des Saintes

Star Clipper Review – Lovely Port of Iles des Saintes

We had a blissfully calm sail from Dominica to Ile des Saintes, a collection of 8 small islands off the coast of Guadeloupe.  All hands were on deck to watch our approach into the beautiful protected bay.   I had no familiarity with this destination, and it’s obvious luxury yatchers have been keeping it a secret […]

Star Clipper Review – Ports of Nevis & Dominica

Star Clipper Review – Ports of Nevis & Dominica

Anchored off Charlestown early on Sunday morning, we were thrilled to see Nevis’ peak was in full view and not wreathed in clouds as is so often the case. Phillip, our cruise director, cautioned that Nevis is a sleepy little community on an average day, and Sundays are even quieter.

Sailing Through The Caribbean – Star Clipper Trip Report

Sailing Through The Caribbean – Star Clipper Trip Report

Last winter Clint and I were gazing out to sea at sunset from a funky beach bar on St. Kitts. Off in the distance was the most beautiful sailing ship gliding majestically through the bay with soft sunlight reflecting off its billowing sails. Right then and there I knew I had to get on that ship! A bit of detective work determined that the gorgeous 4 masted schooner was one of Star Clipper’s sailing ships and you guessed it… this winter we went sailing with Star Clipper on a journey through the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean. Join me on this memorable journey:
