We've never seen this ship coming into either STJ or Tortola tonight, it looked like a huge sail boat with at least 5 sails. We saw it around 530 or so. Does anyone know about this?

If you mean 5 masts -[ a lot more than 5 sails] -- It is "Club Med 2" which is often in the VI waters -- it is a sailing cruise ship excursion.

Exit~ yeah, I meant to say the 5 masts! Thanks, it was really cool to see. I wish that it had been 10 minutes later because we would have seen it in the amazing moon glow of tonight....

Neat ship. We were on it's sister ship in the South Pacific several years ago. Crew of about 250 and about 500 guests. The back lets down to form a dock so the small rubber boats can take divers out and the water skiers and wind surfers can go out from the dock.
