Day 5 (Blake Shelton Cruise) Tortola, BVI

I woke up the morning around 6 a.m. Took a short walk to the stern of the ship (back of the ship) and had breakfast at the Great Outdoors restaurant. I met a young man from Boston Mass who told me his wife bought him tickets to the Blake Shelton cruise last Christmas. He said he and his wife have sailed NCL many times and really enjoy it.

From the YouTube videos I’ve watched on Tortola, I wasn’t even planning on getting off the ship, but I’m glad I did. The people are VERY friendly and don’t bother you like some vendors do in other ports.

I asked where I could find free wif-fi and one of the locals directed me to the Village Cay Hotel and Marina. It’s only about a 7 minute walk from the pier.

The Blake Shelton Cruise has been great so far. I went to the Neal McCoy show last night and he really knows how to engage a crowd. Neal is very friendly to his fans and is a genuine guy. You can follow him on Twitter @NealMcCoy.

Here is my video of Blake Shelton doing the Q and A up on the pool deck a couple days ago:

Tomorrow is an at sea day, then on Saturday we will be in Nassau.
