Day 1 Bridgetown, Barbados | Embark

On the wild and rugged east coast of Barbados, the isolated beaches are the color of sunrise, the red sands having blown all the way across the Atlantic from the Sahara. The easternmost island of the Windwards, and indeed, of the entire Caribbean, reaches out to Africa and the Old World, as if not quite part of the New. Bridgetown, Barbados, is an interesting town full of contrasts. George Washington actually slept here! Trafalgar Square reminds you that the laidback, rum- and fun-loving island's British-influenced heritage includes revered traditions like cricket and high tea.

Day 2 Rodney Bay, St. Lucia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
A lush island of tropical beauty, St. Lucia is part of the Windward Islands. Its 238 square miles are covered with rainforests, banana plantations, palm-lined beaches, mountains, and even a drive-in volcano. Prettier sights are to be seen at Diamond Falls and Mineral Baths where you can walk the gardens and take a dip in the pool under the waterfalls. One of St. Lucia's truly spectacular attractions is the Pitons, two volcanic cones rising up from the sea that have become a symbol of the island itself. Today, St. Lucia offers its guests a wide range of natural charm with beautiful beaches, lush scenery, fishing villages unchanged by time, and friendly Caribbean hospitality.

Day 3 Cabrits, Dominica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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 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 5 Basseterre | South Friar's Bay, St.Kitts

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
St. Kitts' was the first successful colony in the British West Indies. Shop in colorful Basseterre, play golf, and tour old plantation houses. For the adventuresome there's a brisk hike through the rainforest.

Day 7 Beach, Martinique

Martinique is the classic French Caribbean island. Wild and mysterious, yet urbane and sophisticated, it is France with a tropical twist, with something for almost everyone. You won't be able to resist the charms of spicy Creole cooking and tempting boutiques in Fort de France.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
