Thought it was Fine

Z:
Holding was very good..................sand if my memory is right......I was there for 3 nights and we got pushed around with a couple of squalls without any problems..........winds mostly 060 to 120.

Rolly - not at all with the wind directions we saw. The harbor does not have a huge entrance & it's not flat/long......plus it has a hook around the east side which blocks waves coming across the top of the island ........so it's hard for waves to enter unless the wind was blowing out of the North.

Just peeked at the concert details:

Wow, 3,500-4,000 people @ $100 a piece
Sounds like a lot of charter (big Cats) bringing over many plus ferries. Noticed the venue is @ Rendezvous Bay which is on the south side closer to SXM.....that will cut down on the crowd at Road Bay ....sounds like they are making arrangements to handle immigration @ Rendezvous (although they were overwhelmed during Carnival - not sure daytrippers even tried) so unless they want to stay or hang out at RB bars...no reason to travel around to RB.

Mosquitos - Don't remember any problems on board...........especially when wind blowing......think we may have used repellent in the evening on the beach (no see-ums, et-al).

Crew Requests - humm.............know what you mean..............could be nice if a big Parrothead fan .............to jump one of the big party cats from SXM with rum flowing so you do not have to worry about anything & concentrate 100% on her = score big points.............then off to T & T
