Another nice day in the islands…
There aren’t as many ships here today so we can get a rare view of Phillipsburg’s Great Bay from the ship – Normally, there would a ship there (one will show up later).
Ellen is in the picture below – can you spot her?
QM2 Docked in Philipsburg
As we generally do, we will take the water taxi from the port area to the town – while it does cost $7, it saves us from having to walk a couple of miles to the town.
On the Water Taxi
We are planning to visit our favorite Spa in town for some pampering today and then walk about the town for a bit. For the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Philipsburg is busy abounding in tourists.
From the water taxi pier, we can see the QM3 and our new neighbor, the NCL Gem.
The Queen and her Gem
The beach and boardwalk at Philipsburg were very warm and scenic today.
We got back to the ship in time for a late lunch. After lunch, it was out on the open deck to be entertained by the NCL Gem. We were not too unhappy when the Gem left in the early afternoon.

Another beautiful sunset capped off a beautiful day in the Caribbean.
