I don't do cricket but taxi's in Antigua almost block your exit as you step off the ship, so 'not' getting into a taxi is more difficult if you take my meaning. Most taxi's are vans of varying sizes which is handy if you meet people on the ship with similar ideas.....Wilba.
We are two couples who will be on the same trip as you and we plan to go to the cricket, I've been told that a taxi will take appro. 15 - 20 minutes to get to the ground.
Yes thanks for that looks like a taxi is favourite, it cant be to far from were the ship docks.
The crickrt field in Antigua is at the top of the town, just walk up the main street towards the church, its not far and less that 8 mins walk.
The new Viv Richards stadium is not actually in town your thinking of the old stadium. This new staduim was built for the 2007 world cup and is in North sound approx 20 minute drive from the port (st John), if P&O don't do a trip why not get a taxi there.
Many thanks for the info sorry I'm out of date, you could feel the atmosphere just by looking through the gate of the old stadium.
It sounds like the new one is quite a few miles out of town, and If we do an island tour this Feb I'll try to get a look at it , but I'll bet its like the one in Barbados, all mod and concrete.
We did the cricketing legends tour when we were in Antigua on Oceana last year. If you get the chance to do it you will have a marvellous day. First we were taken around the old ground in St Johns, then onto the Viv Richards stadium. Last, the highlight of the tour was to the Sandford ground where we had an excellant meal and met Curtly Ambrose who gave a talk and answered questions, signed autographs and posed for photos,what a wonderful man.Do this tour if possible,it may seem expensive but you would be unable to do it by yourself,it was worth every penny.Have a wonderful time on Ventura,she is a beautiful ship.We were on her maiden voyage across the Atlantic and had a wonderful holiday as usual with PO.
