Fly Caribbean

The moment you touch down in the captivating Caribbean, you’ll feel the mood lift with the promise of sparkling times ahead. It’s the perfect way to leave the grey of winter far behind and soak up the heartwarming hues of these paradise islands. Your ship awaits, moored in the Bajan capital, Bridgetown, ready to set sail. St Vincent won’t disappoint, with its fresh seafood, gentle calypso and unspoilt coves. Move on to picture-perfect St Kitts, blessed with deserted white beaches, and the French-Dutch flair of St Maarten. After a call in Grand Turk there’s much to do in Tortola – from swimming and snorkeling in the tropical waters, to shopping in the local markets. Antigua is the perfect place to soak up the Caribbean spirit (think chilling out on some of its 365 paradise beaches). In St Lucia, a tour to the dramatic Soufrière volcano shows off the island’s full beauty, dominated by the twin peaks of Les Pitons. Sailing on, one of the Caribbean’s prettiest harbours awaits in Grenada. Spend a day enjoying its waterfalls, rainforests, volcanic craters and beaches – especially Grand Anse. Finally, it’s back to beautiful Barbados where you can enjoy a day of water sports or stunning nature walks before your flight home.

Full Itinerary

Day 1: Barbados

Depart the UK and fly to the Caribbean on the same day of embarkation. Watching the Atlantic surf crash down on the rugged east coast of this richly diverse island and, for a moment, you may feel you could be on the Cornish coast but the moment you hear the waves of gospel singing emanating from a tiny local church you realise you could not be anywhere else but Barbados.

In the capital and cruise port, Bridgetown, there are intriguing signs of its British colonial past while, across the island, you are really spoilt for choice. You can enjoy every watersport under the sun; stunning nature walks and bike rides; or maybe a trip to the uniquely magnificent Harrisons Cave underground complex of caverns, waterfalls, stalactites and stalagmites.

Day 2: St Vincent

St Vincent can be found in the Caribbean sea, between Saint Lucia and Grenada. With stunning white sandy beaches and beautiful blue waters, it's a perfect place to relax and take in the Caribbean atmosphere. The island's capital - Kingstown - is a more lively place to explore, with pretty cobbled streets.

Day 3: At Sea

What will catch your eye today? A designer scent, a new handbag or dress, or perhaps some new jewellery for a formal night? Naturally, if you need to stock up on everyday essentials, there’s a shop on board for that too.

Day 4: St. Kitts

Yet the first thing you will see when the ship docks is pretty much brand new: St. Kitts cruise terminal and marina complex - a collection of shops, bars, restaurants and gardens. Once through that, though, you can explore the back streets and impressively restored Georgian buildings of the capital, Basseterre. Independent since 1983, St. Kitts covers just 65 square miles but has its own World Heritage site: Brimstone Hill fortress. Another option for St. Kitts cruise visitors is the 45-minute ferry to sister island Nevis.

Day 5: St. Maarten

The Dutch capital Philipsburg is a delightful warren of narrow streets called steegjies. Here you will find interesting shops and leafy courtyard cafés. Start your exploration at Wathey Square, which is home to a colourful market. If you would prefer to enjoy a little French 'je ne sais quoi', take an island tour to the pretty French capital Marigot. It's worth visiting for its colourful markets, lovely café-lined waterfront and the chic boutiques of Marina Port La Royale, where you can pick up unusual jewellery and leather goods. Or spend your day on a catamaran trip from Philipsburg for fabulous deep-sea snorkelling with lunch.

Day 6: At Sea

At sea you can enjoy internet access 24/7.

Day 7: Grand Turk

On your walk round Cockburn, Grand Turk's main town, take a turn down Duke and Font Street which are lined with 18th and 19th century landmarks which reflect the Bermudian architecture of the salt era. The nearby Turks and Caicos Museum discloses the rich cultural and natural diversity of the islands and tells the story of the Molasses Reef Wreck, the oldest European shipwreck discovered in the western hemisphere. The surrounding seas offer a variety of dramatic and colourful underwater landscapes and snorkellers and scuba-divers will be spoilt for choice. From the seahorses and stingrays of Coral Garden Reef and Columbus Landfall National Park to the curves of McDonalds Arch and cliffs of the beautiful Black Forest.

Day 8: At Sea

Take a behingd the scenes tour. The tour is hosted by a Senior Staff member and gives you the chance to get a different view of life on board. Tours including going down to the Engine Control Room, through the galley and theatre, backstage. You may even be lucky enough to get a glimpse of the Bridge.

Day 9: Tortola

Its quaint capital, Road Town, is charming and compact. Just five minutes walk from the tender drop-off at Wickhams Quay you will find Main Street, home to a colourful crafts market and a range of small speciality shops selling Tortolan ceramics, Mexican glassware and unusual carvings sculpted from sea flotsam. You will also find some of the loveliest and least crowded beaches in the Caribbean. At Cane Garden Bay you can tuck into a barbecued freshly caught fish; snorkellers will find the most eye-boggling marine life at Lower Belmont Bay, while those who enjoy a walk can stroll through the rainforest at Mount Sage National Park.

Day 10: Antigua

With over 365 beaches, there is a slice of white sand heaven for every day of the year - even a leap year - on the idyllic Caribbean holiday island Antigua, which played host to Admiral Horatio Nelson's fleet in the late 1700's. Nelson's Dockyard now bustles with crew and guests from yachts and cruise ships sailing these waters for pleasure rather than for King and Country.

The main port, St John's, is also the capital and a vibrant hub for shopping as well as being within easy range of some of the best beaches - at Fort James, Deep Bay, Galley Bay and Hawksbill. Almost perfect weather conditions and low humidity, due to the warm prevailing trade winds, allows Antigua to boast of being the sunniest of the Eastern Caribbean islands with the lowest annual rainfall. It is also the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands although it is only 14 miles long and 11 miles wide. Still, with a population of less than 70,000, this means there are lots of wide open spaces - especially on those gorgeous beaches.

Day 11: St Lucia

St Lucia has a fascinating if bloody history with the French and British spending years fighting over it. One look at this luscious island will show you why.

Here you can watch parrots and hummingbirds skim through the trees, bask on beautiful beaches, visit charming fishing villages, view stunning volcanic scenery and glory in the Caribbean's best botanical gardens.

If it is your first visit, an island tour to the dramatic Soufriére volcano will show you the island's full beauty. Boat trips to spot dolphin and whales are also available, as are biking, jeep and hiking tours of the rainforest. But do leave time to explore the shops of Castries, where you can pick up bread, wine and even ketchup made from bananas.

Day 12: Grenada

Sailors through the centuries have rated it one of the worlds prettiest harbours and it is hard to disagree. Horseshoe-shaped and set in a volcanic crater, Grenadas capital and cruise port St Georges is flanked by two forts, with colourful French colonial style buildings ranged along the front.

Grenada is also the island you can smell before you can see it. The 'Spice Island' grows more spices per square mile than anywhere else on the planet with nutmeg its signature seasoning.

In fact, gentle haggling with spice vendors is part of the fun of cruising to this laid-back Caribbean island.

Day 13: At Sea

A selection of films can be watched in all cabins via the in-cabin televisions. A small charge applies to certain films, though many are free. Details of all in-cabin movies will be made available to you once on-board. Some ships even have their own cinema or SeaScreen up on deck.

Day 14: Barbados

Watching the Atlantic surf crash down on the rugged east coast of this richly diverse island and, for a moment, you may feel you could be on the Cornish coast but the moment you hear the waves of gospel singing emanating from a tiny local church you realise you could not be anywhere else but Barbados.

In the capital and cruise port, Bridgetown, there are intriguing signs of its British colonial past while, across the island, you are really spoilt for choice. You can enjoy every watersport under the sun; stunning nature walks and bike rides; or maybe a trip to the uniquely magnificent Harrisons Cave underground complex of caverns, waterfalls, stalactites and stalagmites. Overnight in Barbados.

Day 15: Barbados

Disembark the ship for an overnight flight from the Caribbean, arriving in the UK the following morning.
