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 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy this day offshore, relaxing and taking in the smell of the fresh ocean breeze up on deck.

Day 3 Terre-de-Haut, Îles des Saintes

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Îles des Saintes is a small archipelago which was disputed for a long time until it finally became French in 1816. In the charming main town of Terre-de-Haut, you can take a delightful stroll along the waterside promenade. Boutiques, cafés, bars, and restaurants invite you to browse and spend some time here. The 'savoir vivre' takes place against a backdrop lit up in all the pastel shades of the Caribbean. Fort Napoleon is set high above the bay and your climb up to it is rewarded by a spectacular panoramic view. On the other side of the island, the Plage de Pompierre invites you to enjoy a dip in the sea and sunbathe on the beach.

Day 4 Falmouth Harbour, Antigua

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In Falmouth Harbour's neighboring bay lies an old natural harbor fortified by the Royal Navy. This British naval base was important in the 18th and 19th centuries and is known as the English Harbour. The imposing fortifications, Georgian docks, and lovingly restored former workshops, dwellings, and warehouses in Nelson's Dockyard remind of the time when Britain "ruled the waves". From the old fortifications at Shirley Heights you have a breathtaking view over the port and the whole coastline. There is partying and dancing on the weekends, with live music from popular steel and reggae bands.

Day 5 Gustavia, St Barthélemy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
St Barthélemy, affectionately known as St Barths by most, had already had many "owners" before the Lesser Antilles were acquired by France in 1877. When the first estate was acquired by the banker David Rockefeller in 1957, the island's future was finally sealed. It became a refuge for the international jet set and an elegant holiday paradise for many Hollywood stars. For over 40 years, St Barths has cultivated a luxurious lifestyle with a Caribbean laissez-faire approach. You can stroll through the charming main town of Gustavia, whose beautifully restored houses and colonial facades look out over the sea with its elegant super yachts, browse in the shops for precious items, or enjoy a sundowner in the picturesque harbor surrounded by clusters of high class bars and restaurants.

Day 6-7 Cabrits, Dominica

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Dominica, nicknamed the "Nature Isle" of the Caribbean, is one of the most untouched of the Windward Islands. It boasts some of the highest mountains in the Lesser Antilles, as well as many beautiful national parks. Its interior is characterized by thick virgin forest, where rivers plunge into the depths and tiny streams wind through the jungle. Two extinct volcanoes are at the center of Cabrits National Park and, recaptured by nature, the former strategically important Fort Stanley appears like a picturesque backdrop in the heart of the jungle.

Day 8 Bridgetown, Barbados

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
More than 300 years of British rule have left their mark. The whole of Bridgetown, Barbados' historic center, with its colonial architecture surrounding Trafalgar Square, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gentle green hilly countryside and endless fields of sugar cane characterize the island's landscape. Old colonial houses are reminders of the high life of the plantation owners, while innumerable colorful chattel houses are evidence of their workers' "moveable property". The sweeping coastline is a picture postcard of fine sandy beaches and turquoise sea surrounded by colorful coral reefs.

Day 9 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy this day offshore, relaxing and taking in the smell of the fresh ocean breeze up on deck.

Day 10 Man-O-War Bay, Tobago

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Man-O-War Bay Cottages stand amid colorful landscaped grounds - a tropical garden of beautiful shrubs, flowers, and trees laden with papaya, breadfruit, and almonds. Step off your veranda and walk a few steps right onto a beach of soft, inviting sand stretching 3/4s of a mile long. Coral reefs that start at the shore line are home to countless tropical fish species and are a true joy to snorkeling enthusiasts. Around the cottages guests can enjoy birdwatching as blue tanagers and hummingbirds dart from flower to flower.

Day 11 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 12 Soufriere, St Lucia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Next stop in Soufriere, a magical spot with two famous volcanic cones, indisputably the emblem of St Lucia and designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Gros and Petit Piton tower over the southern, windward side of the island and, in Soufrière, seem close enough to touch. The volcanoes have in fact long been extinct, but the sulphur springs demonstrate the power of the earth's core and still bubble up. In the Botanical Gardens, natural abundance is combined with artistic arrangements to create a colorful tropical paradise. Some people claim that Josephine, who later became Napoleon's wife, used to bathe in the little pool in the garden.

Day 13 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 snorkellng. 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 14 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 15 Bridgetown, Barbados | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Return to Bridgetown and disembark after breakfast for your continued independent journeys.
