Sailing Past Montserrat

We are currently sailing past Montserrat, the small Caribbean island that was partially decimated by a volcanic eruption in 1995. The lava from this and subsequent eruptions led to the complete burial of the capital city and the mass exodus of over half the population. The parts of the island not covered in ash are beautiful, lush and serene.
