Day 1: Rodney Bay, St. Lucia | Embark

St. Lucia is romantic, a little wild and softly seductive. Enjoy an afternoon swim in the shadow of the majestic Pitons, or a drive to the top off a volcano, to watch it bubble and steam. Zip-line through the tree tops of the lush rainforest, mountain bike, sail, golf and dive. Spend a day in this piece of paradise before boarding your ship and setting sail on your Caribbean journey.

Day 2-6: Sailing the Caribbean

  • Ship
  • 5 Breakfasts, 5 Lunches, 5 Dinners
The captain and crew will set a course following ideal weather, providing a truly custom trip. Some of the destinations you may visit include:

You’ll fall in love with nature when you visit Dominica. Take a short hike to majestic Trafalgar Falls, or take a slow and easy ride down a mangrove-lined, lazy river. Visit the second-largest boiling lake in the world, or watch basket weavers at the Kalinago Culture Village. Top off your day with a romantic swim in Champagne Beach, where tiny bubbles escape from vents in the ocean floor and surround you in the warm, clear waters.

Shaped like a butterfly, Guadeloupe’s wings flutter into your adventure-loving heart. Beach lovers head east to Grand-Terre for miles of white sand and aqua shores. Hikers, history buffs and those looking to shop may prefer the west wing of Basse-Terre, with its winding trails, lush plant life, and tempting boutiques. Snorkelers and Scuba Divers should check out tiny Pigeon Island, home to Jacque Cousteau’s underwater reserve.

Iles des Saintes
Picturesque and serene, Iles des Saintes is an island archipelago of French delights. Cruise around in a glass-bottom kayak, grab a baguette and a bottle of wine and head to Pompierre Beach, or take a scenic hike to Fort Napolean.

Rum, ruins, and a smoldering volcano are only part of Martinique’s story. She’s as French as a croissant and as elegant as Coco Chanel. Her gorgeous beaches, fashionable shops, fabulous restaurants, and flora-filled nature preserve make Martinique a sophisticated island, balanced with tropical chic.

Day 7: Rodney Bay, St. Lucia | Disembark

Disembark this morning for your continued journey home.
