Be a part of this exclusive Caribbean 8-day cruise from Barbados to Curaçao. Start your adventure sailing with the warm trade winds, aromatic spices, and Dutch island charm of Barbados. The many hours out at sea turn into a real delight for those looking to enjoy freedom beneath the sails. Discover Grenada, the island of spice, where nutmeg is immortalized on the national flag. If the aromatic fragrance of the tropics were to have a name, it would have to be “Grenada”. Explore the natural beauty of Bonaire, a true paradise for nature lovers. This Dutch island’s brightly colored coral reefs are amongst the best snorkeling sites in the world.

Day 1 Bridgetown, Barbados | Embark

Arrive in Bridgetown and board the Sea Cloud II. Settle in to your cabin and attend a welcome dinner as the ship sets sail.

Day 2 Port Elizabeth, Bequia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bequia is actually the largest island in the Grenadines, but still small and tranquil at just 18 square kilometers (87 square miles) in size. Elegant sailing yachts sway in the natural shelter of Admiralty Bay, while in lovely Port Elizabeth, with its attractive beach bars, you are right in the heart of a lifestyle that likes to take things easy. You can find Princess Margaret Beach just nearby, named because it was once visited by the British royal. On the eastern coast you can find the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary which focuses on rearing and caring for endangered turtles.

Day 3 Tobago Cays, Union Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Right in the south of the Grenadines are Union Island and the Tobago Cays. Union Island was given the evocative name "the Tahiti of the West Indies" thanks to its volcanic silhouette. Four small uninhabited islands, surrounded by a protective horseshoe-shaped coral reef, form the Tobago Cays. The Horseshoe Reef holds the Atlantic swell at bay and its unique animal and plant life make it an ideal place for snorkeling. The lagoon between the islets shimmers in all shades from turquoise through to emerald green and invites you to take a dip at the fantastic beaches.

Day 4 St. George's, Grenada

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy beautiful beaches, aromatic spice plantations, dense rainforests, waterfalls, and a volcano that has long been extinct, picturesquely towering over this stunningly beautiful island. For many people, Grenada is the incarnation of a tropical paradise and St George's the most beautiful little port in the Grenadines. All around the horseshoe-shaped bay there are numerous houses that remind you of colonial times. There is good reason why nutmeg is immortalized on the national flag. Alongside cloves, cinnamon, and ginger, it is one of the island's biggest exports.

Day 5-6 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Enjoy these days offshore, relaxing and taking in the smell of the fresh ocean breeze up on deck.

Day 7 Kralendijk, Bonaire

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Visit Bonaire, the second largest island in the ABC islands, which forms part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. This is an idyllic natural paradise with many different faces. In the hilly northern region, lush tropical greenery prevails and in the some areas have a desert-like character with cactuses as high as trees and natural salt lakes that attract whole flocks of pink flamingos. The island also gleams with rugged rocky cliffs, mangrove forests, several small bays, endless sandy beaches, and a long offshore coral reef.

Day 8 Willemstad, Curaçao

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Dinner
 Disembark at Willemstad after breakfast for your continued independent journeys.
