Club Med calls on St. John

Who knew Club Med does cruises?  Turns out they sure do, and one of its ships, Club Med 2, is in port on St. John today.  (The photo is not from Cruz Bay – it’s off the Cruise Critic Web site.)

The crew is French/English, and the ship can accommodate almost 400 people.  Its a new breed of ship that combines computer-assisted sailing with traditional engines.  Because she’s relatively small, as cruise ships go, 610 feet long, she can call on smaller islands, like St. John. 

CruiseCritic.com describes the experience: "Much like the resorts, Club Med 2 emphasizes fitness and physical activities. At the stern of the vessel is the sports platform, which enables passengers to water-ski, windsurf and SCUBA dive right off the back of the boat. The ship also offers a fitness room with aerobics. Other activities include a piano bar, karaoke, sauna and massage."

Is it good or bad that small cruise ships are calling on St. John?

  1. 27 People thus far said very very bad, but no comments. I would like to know what they are thinking that it is very very bad to have small cruise ships land at St Johns

  2. Actually, if you add the very, very bad with the bad you come up with 51 pct.
    I also wonder what these folks are thinking. I’m sure it isn’t the shop keepers or folks that have other business.
    Maybe it’s just selfish tourists

  3. To all cruise enthusiasts, I am so excited about our forthcoming cruise, I just have to tell everyone about it.
    We have been on many cruises in the past with many different cruise lines, so we know what to expect, but not
    quite like the one we have just booked to go on with Silversea Cruises. After speaking to a couple of friends that
    have cruised with Silversea before, and reading all about it, we just can’t believe what you get for your money. In
    my opinion, Silversea Cruises are one of the most luxurious cruise lines in the world, a little like an undiscovered
    secret until now. We have done lots of research on this cruise line now and have found a great informational web
    site that tells you everything you need to know, before you go.
    I was amazed to find out that all Silversea cabins onboard are not just cabins but are all suites, and are so well
    appointed to such a high standard, and 90% of them have private veranda’s too. We have booked a Veranda
    Suite which will be absolutely fine for us, take a look here to see what I mean,
    Another amazing fact about Silversea is that as well as being super luxury 6 star cruise ships, they are also
    super ‘All Inclusive’ too, which means absolutely everything you want to eat or drink is all included in the price and
    you can read about that here, http://www.super-luxury-cruises.com/index.php?pr=All_Inclusive_Ships
    And although its ‘All Inclusive’ the quality of food is also second to none and on a par with what you would expect
    from a 6 star restaurant any where in the world,
    Hopefully now you can see why we are so excited about going on this cruise. There is so much more to tell you
    about Silversea Cruises that I would be here all day, but if you would like to know more, take a look at this great
    web site I found, http://www.super-luxury-cruises.com as they tell you much more than I could ever fit in on here.
    If anyone is interested and would like me to, I would be only too happy to tell you all about our own personal
    experiences and give you our thoughts about Silversea, after we return from our cruise.
    Oh yes, I almost forgot, I did promiss to give the travel agent that we used to book our cruise with a mention, as
    they were very helpful and gave us a fantastic deal too, http://www.dimension-travel.com
    Best regards and happy cruising !
