A week later, during its Exotic Southern Caribbean itinerary, my cruise ship (Celebrity Constellation) made port in Bridgetown, located in the parish of St. Michael on Barbados' southwest coast. With 80,000 people, this is the most densely populated of Barbados' 11 parishes, and it oozes with British history."
