Our first Christmas Eve Service was going to be at 5:15pm, with a second Christmas Eve Service at Midnight. Our Christmas morning service was to be at 9am Christmas Day. We decided to stay close to the ship with a long walk through the streets of Road Town.

High winds and seas delayed our arrival in Tortola, but as soon as we docked, both Ed and I escorted tours of the island in the local taxis. Our guide, Courtney, was also our driver.
