Ascension Island


4/9 – 4/10

It took us a day and 919 miles to get to Ascension Island. Because there is no pier suitable for a cruise ship, we were supposed to tender to the town of Georgetown. Unfortunately, the sea was too rough so the captain canceled the visit. The captain did sail around the island and we probably saw more of the island than if we had gone ashore. We also learned that, because of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, we would not be visiting Gambia and Senegal. Many folks were quite disappointed, while others were relieved. The captain added two additional ports, Praia, Cape Verde and St. Lucia, to make up for the ones we missed.
