Trip Snapshots

Day 1 Philipsburg, St. Maarten | Embark

The smallest island in the world shared by two countries, St. Martin/St. Maarten is big on shopping. Whether you go Dutch in Philipsburg or prefer Marigot's French touch, you're always welcome.

Day 2 Charlestown, Nevis

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Nevis is the kind of place you wish they wouldn't write about because you'd like to keep it all to yourself. The island is dotted with old sugar plantations, some of them now turned into charming inns, many with interesting histories. Dominated by the perilously steep cliffs of Mt. Scenery, this small Dutch island didn't even have a road around it until 1951. But the diving is definitely out of this world.

Day 3 Cabrits, Dominica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Star Flyer meets Royal Clipper South of Iles des Saintes and the two ships sail together.

Dominica is a dream-like island, full of surprises. Glide through a steamy orchid-festooned rainforest in a fascinating boat ride or hike to breathtaking Trafalgar Falls and a bubbling lake.

Day 4 Terre-de-haut, Iles des Saintes

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Les Saintes is a thoroughly entrancing group of islands lying off Guadeloupe. Enjoy the superb beaches, snorkeling, diving and other watersports on offer.

Day 5 Deshaies, Guadeloupe

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Guadeloupe looks like a butterfly from the air. Its giant wings are actually two islands, separated by the Rivière Salée, a natural salt water channel. Basse Terre, the southern or leeward part of Guadeloupe, is lush and rugged, dominated by La Soufrière. A stream of boiling water gushes from the top of the 4,800-ft. mountain, reminding you that this volcano is not dormant, but very much alive.

Day 6 Falmouth Harbour, Antigua

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The dockyards, marinas, old inns, venerable pubs, and convivial crowds of sun-tanned yacht crews - this is the epicenter of the Caribbean yachting world. Today, every faded pink brick and weather-worn bollard of Nelson's Dockyard evokes the presence of the greatest naval commander in history.

Day 7 Gustavia, St.Barts

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In its elegant little capital of Gustavia, French joie de vivre is tempered by Swedish spic and span neatness. Diversions include duty-free shopping in exquisite boutiques, beautiful beaches, excellent dining, and people-watching.

Day 8 Philipsburg, St. Maarten | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Disembark after breakfast and continue your independent trip back home.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
