Carnival Victory: St. Lucia

Arrive at 8 am, back on board by 4:30, Sail away at 5.

While planning our trip we originally planned to get a day pass from the Rendezvous All Inclusive Adults Only Resort. We had emailed them to find out more info and they told us to just take a cab over to the resort and pay when we got there. The day pass was $50pp and included the complete use of their facilities, beach loungers and umbrella as well as unlimited food and drink (soda, water alcohol). Although this was an amazing deal, our still recovering sun burns made us reconsider a cheaper option for only a couple hours in the sun.

I was hoping to be able to see the Pitons instead but we didn't wander down to the port area until noon. The drivers there said we wouldn't have time to get there and back etc so we took a cab to Rodney Bay for $7pp.  The driver was informative on the 20 or so minute ride to the beach. When we got there we were given a raffle ticket of sorts with our drivers name and the time he would return, which was 2:30.

The beach area was nice but the sand was very hot. They had loungers and umbrellas for rent but we walked down to an area and just layed out our towels. They had a bar & grill area and there seemed to be quite a few resort/hotels down the beach. There were also water sports you could do here but we just wanted to relax. We really enjoyed this beach, nice and quiet. Before we knew it, it was time to head back. Once we made it back to the port area, we did some shopping, got some Pitons beer (locally made) 2 for $3. The port area was nice and open with lots of tables and seating options.
