Location St Kitts
In 08:00
Out 16:00

St. Kitts and Nevis are a pair of islands that form a single Eastern Caribbean nation. Ripe with historical sites, the larger St. Kitts passed hands among the Spanish, French and English, with the latter establishing the strongest foothold. The architecture and layout of its capital city, Basseterre, are all typically British. And the island’s sprawling, colonial-era plantations are a reminder of the tumultuous history of the tobacco, rum, sugar and slave trades that were here for generations. Beyond its rich past, St. Kitts offers golden-sand beaches for relaxing, a lush jungle interior that welcomes heart-pumping adventure, laid-back bars with fantastic sunset views and restaurants serving up über-local fare.

Book a Caribbean cruise and discover St. Lucia’s sandy white beaches, vibrant tropical foliage, and authentic island food.

Date 07/04/2023
Location Barbados
In 08:00
Out 16:00

Barbadians, or Bajans in local parlance, consider their island nation the most British of the Caribbean: Queen Elizabeth II is still head of state, and English products are stocked in many of its stores and restaurants. Barbados is known as the birthplace of international pop star Rihanna, but it has also produced some of the biggest Caribbean calypso and soca music stars. The summer Crop Over festival is a huge carnival event. With live music and crafts for sale, the popular Friday fish fry at Oistins Bay is a fun place to mingle with the locals.

Centered around a waterway called the Careenage and its handsome Chamberlain Bridge, the historic center of Bridgetown, the country’s capital, was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 2011 for its wealth of British colonial architecture dating from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Among the famous figures who visited Bridgetown when it was at its peak was none other than George Washington, who spent two months in 1751 in a house that still stands today, on his only trip abroad.

Barbados is only 34 kilometers (21 miles) long, and even if your time is limited, you can explore much of the island using Bridgetown as your base. The less populated, rugged east coast of this coral island is strikingly beautiful and home to a number of different turtle species. The west coast, often nicknamed the “Platinum Coast,” is where you’ll find some of the island’s most popular beaches and biggest mansions. The interior, with its 340-meter-high (1,115-foot-high) Mount Hillaby, historic sugar plantations and lush gardens, will lure you away from the beach for a few hours.

Date 08/04/2023
Location St Georges
In 08:00
Out 16:00

What qualifies an entire town for UNESCO World Heritage Site status? For St. George’s (est.1612) it was both British charm – stone buildings, neatly bricked streets, heraldic signs – and the British Army and Royal Navy military installations that protected it through the centuries. Among the town’s many historic strongholds is Fort Catherine, housing breathtaking replicas of Britain’s Crown Jewels.

Date 09/04/2023
Location Guadeloupe
In 08:00
Out 17:00

That rarest of breeds—an overseas department of France—Guadeloupe is a place where the language, currency and wine lists all attest to the fact that you’re in the motherland, while the volcanic backdrop, vivid architectural palette and fragrant spice markets tell a different story. But no matter. As soon as you arrive in the port of Pointe-à-Pitre, you’ll embrace the contradictions. The island’s improbable blend makes for beautiful (and delicious) experiences, such as a taste of the tourment d’amour, a coconut-filled tart—think French petit gâteau meets the tropics.

Pointe-à-Pitre isn’t Guadeloupe’s administrative capital, but it’s definitely the island’s cultural capital, as you’ll soon discover as you explore the museums, markets and historic sites. And you’re never far from amazing nature: An easy drive in almost any direction on this butterfly-shaped island will lead to rivers, rain forests, waterfalls, wild stretches of coastline—and the highest peak in the Lesser Antilles.

Date 10/04/2023
Location St Maarten
In 08:00
Out 17:00

Philipsburg is the capital of Sint Maarten, the Dutch side of the Caribbean island Saint Martin. Beachfront bars line the boardwalk along Great Bay. Voorstraat, or Front Street, has duty-free shops and casinos. The St. Maarten Zoo is home to parrots, monkeys and a playground. Sint Maarten Museum displays artifacts from the indigenous Arawak people. The ruins of 17th-century Fort Amsterdam stand on a nearby peninsula.

Date 11/04/2023
Location San Juan
In 08:00
Out 23:00

Massive El Morro Fortress guards Old San Juan, while the benevolent Indian spirit Yuquiyu keeps watch over the entire island from the highest peak in the rain forest. By night there are roulette wheels to spin and fiery flamenco shows to catch. Sample shore excursions: Old San Juan Historic Walking Tour; El Yunque Rain Forest Drive; World Heritage Fortress & Art Museum.
