With the busy Christmas period fast approaching and British winter quickly taking hold, there’s no better way to escape! Enjoy some relaxation and soothing sunshine on a voyage to – and exploration of – gorgeous Caribbean islands.
Leaving the UK’s shores behind, you’ll soon forget about the cold weather back home as you head across the Atlantic for the sun-kissed Caribbean.
En-route, you will visit Lisbon, with its rich maritime heritage and enchanting architecture. The ship will also call in on the beautiful Portuguese island of Madeira, where sweet-scented gardens and leafy levada trails await.
Upon arrival in the Caribbean, stunning St Maarten provides an unforgettable welcome to the region. Glorious golden beaches, historic landmarks such as Fort Amsterdam and Fort Willem, and spectacular scenery await discovery from Philipsburg.
Then there’s St Kitts, where a ride on the island’s scenic railway – taking in vistas of the ocean, mighty cliffs and lush-green landscapes – makes for an unmissable and unforgettable experience.
This is followed by a visit to Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe. Your ship will be the only one in port during your time in Basse-Terre. This means you’re in for a less-crowded discovery of the island’s charming capital, its thick rainforest and volcanic peaks.
Vibrant Bridgetown, gateway to exploring Barbados, is where you disembark. Before flying home, perhaps take a dip in the azure waters and swim with Sea Turtles; visit the Mount Gay Rum Factory; or simply make the most of the glorious Caribbean sunshine and inviting beaches one last time.
If you’d like to spend more time in Barbados at the end of the cruise, we can arrange this, subject to availability.
