Overnight and early Wednesday morning, Royal Princess set several south-easterly courses towards Antigua, passing to the north of Saba Island before setting a south-easterly course passing to the north of St. Eustatius and St. Kitts. With the pilot embarked at 07:08, courses were set to transit the narrow west channel into St. John's harbour. After we enjoyed our day in Antigua and all passengers were on board, Royal Princess "let go" her lines and commenced moving astern until we were out of the harbour, before swinging the ship bow to starboard and stern to port. Once clear of the channel and with the pilot disembarked, Royal Princess set several south south-easterly courses toward Saint Lucia.
