A weeklong Caribbean idyll is yours on this 9-day itinerary that stretches from Central and South America to the French West Indies. From the northern gateway to the Panama Canal, Colón, you’ll sail to graceful Cartegena, the jewel of South America’s northern coast. Glamorous Aruba awaits after a leisurely day at sea. Then, relax aboard the luxurious Tere Moana as your Caribbean cruise continues toward Les Saintes, an island chain known for its serene ambiance and exceptional snorkeling. In Dutch-influenced St. Maarten, you’ll bid farewell to the Tere Moana — and to a truly memorable escape from the everyday.

Day 1

    Colon / Embark

    A seaport on Panama’s Caribbean coast, the country’s second-largest city offers numerous parks and monuments, as well as the largest duty-free shopping zone in the Americas. Perhaps you’ll browse some of the 1,600 showrooms before embarking the Tere Moana here. The ship sets sail this evening.

    Day 2

      At Sea

      Today is at leisure to experience the amenities of Tere Moana. Enjoy a massage at the luxurious spa. Take a dip in the pool. Or simply relax in a deck chair and bask in the warm sun as your ship sails toward Colombia.

      Day 3

        Cartagena, Colombia

        Enjoy your first port of call on your Caribbean cruise with a stop at Cartagena. A blend of Spanish colonial influences and a tropical Caribbean lifestyle infuses the vibrant local culture of Colombia’s fifth-largest city — and most popular travel destination. Cartagena is also one of the loveliest cities in South America, with narrow streets, stately mansions, sprawling plazas, grand monasteries, open-air cafés, and a beautiful seaside setting. Perhaps you’ll visit the Ciudad Amurallada—the city’s historic walled city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll the Plaza Bolívar. Visit the Convento de la Popa (literally, “Convent of the Stern”), founded in 1607 at the highest point in the city. Take a ride by horse-drawn carriage. Or head instead to one of Cartagena’s many beaches. The best-known of these, Playa Blanca, is considered one of the finest beaches in the country.

        Day 4

          At Sea

          Enjoy another day to relax aboard Tere Moana. Perhaps you’ll watch a movie on the private DVD player in your stateroom. And linger with new friends over an elegant lunch in the ship’s La Veranda restaurant.

          Day 5

            Oranjestad, Aruba

            Come discover why Aruba’s slogan is “Where Happiness Lives”! In its glittering, multicultural capital, Oranjestad, you’ll find an ideal walking city brimming with shops, Dutch Colonial architecture, a waterfront market, and a 17th-century fort. Aruba is also world-renowned for its international cuisine, and restaurants are plentiful. Windsurfing is especially popular here, and shallow coral formations make this a great destination for diving and snorkeling. Or simply relax on a beach of soft, ivory-colored sands.

            Day 6

              At Sea

              Today, you might watch the world go by from the comfort of a Balinese bed on the Sun Deck, or unwind in the whirlpool. Select a good book from our onboard library. And savor gourmet specialties inspired by one of the top chefs of Paris over dinner in L’Etoile.

              Day 7

                Les Saintes, F.W.I.

                Located just six miles south of Guadeloupe, this small archipelago of eight gorgeous tropical islands is a world apart with its serene, relaxing ambiance. In Terre-de-Haut, one of just two inhabited islands in the chain, enjoy exceptional snorkeling in the magnificent bay, or take in the view from above at Fort Napoleon. Watch fishermen at work wearing unusual hats found nowhere else. Or explore the village, with its interesting shops and art galleries.

                Day 8

                  St. Barts, F.W.I.

                  Chic shops are a hallmark of this “Manhattan-sur-Mer” (Manhattan on the Sea”), known for its duty-free shopping. Others include the island’s balmy climate and brilliant blue skies, iguanas, and night-blooming cactus. Distinctly French in language, culture, and cuisine, St. Barts remains thoroughly independent in spirit. Enjoy excellent snorkeling and diving from the island’s fabulous cove-style beaches.

                  Day 9

                    Disembark in St Martin, F.W.I.

                    The smallest island in the world to have been partitioned between two nations (France and the Netherlands), St. Martin/St. Maarten has prospered in peaceful coexistence for nearly 350 years. Disembark Tere Moana on the Dutch side of the island, St. Maarten, after breakfast this morning.
