Day 1 Philipsburg, St. Maarten | Embark

The capital of the Dutch side of the island of St. Martin, Philipsburg offers beachfront bars and casinos, a historic fort, and a museum with artifacts from the local indigenous peoples. Explore the town before boarding your ship. 

Day 2-3 Virgin Gorda | Norman Island

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Explorers and privateers once used to cross swords in the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Today, the sea around the British Virgin Islands is one of the world's best sailing areas. Heavenly bays, gorgeous beaches, idyllic anchoring spots, small yacht clubs and charming little beach bars make the island a popular haunt for sailors. On Virgin Gorda, once called "The Fat Virgin" by Columbus due to its shape, find "The Baths," one of nature's most beautiful oddities, in the National Park. Ground to sphere shapes and polished to a shine, the huge granite formations on the beach and in the water create a multi-branched labyrinth of pools perfect for snorkeling and swimming. 

Stop at Norman Island, a small, privately-owned island that has no permanent residents, but a rich history of pirates and legend. Thought to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, Norman Island is dotted with small caves and hiding spots, perfect for exploring!

Day 4 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Spend today relaxing aboard the ship. 

Day 5 Cabrits, Dominica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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 centre of the 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 6 Port Elizabeth, Bequia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bequia is actually the largest island in the Grenadines, but still small and tranquil. 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 7 St. George's

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
With beautiful beaches, aromatic spice plantations, dense rainforests, waterfalls and a volcano that has long been extinct, this stunningly beautiful island is sure to delight. 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 colonial-era houses. 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 8 Tyrell Bay, Carriacou

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Tucked into the perfectly horseshoe-shaped bay on the southwest side of the island of Carriacou, Tyrell Bay offers the ultimate relaxation on its sparkling white-sand beach. 

Day 9 Soufriere, St. Lucia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Two famous volcanic cones are indisputably the emblem of St Lucia and have been 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 nearby sulfur springs still bubble up. In the Botanical Gardens, natural abundance is combined with artistic arrangements to create a colorful tropical paradise. 

Day 10 Terre-de-Haut, Iles 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, take a stroll along the waterfront promenade. Boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants invite you to browse and spend some time here, against a backdrop of the pastel shades of the Caribbean. Fort Napoleon is set high above the bay and the 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 11-12 St. John's, Antigua

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
St. John's is the capital of this small island in the Antilles, a former British colony. From Shirley Heights in the south, enjoy a fantastic view over the English Harbor and Nelson's Dockyard, an old restored shipyard named after the Admiral. Visit Betty's Hope, a restored sugar mill where "white gold" would have been processed during the island's bitter past. Now, sweet black pineapples grow in the gentle rolling landscape around Boggy Peak. The coast is lined with bays and lagoons, dazzling white palm-filled beaches - one for every day of the year - and an almost unbroken coral reef.

Day 13-14 Gustavia, St. Barthelemy

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
St. Barthélemy, affectionately known as St. Barths by most, had already had many "owners" before the Lesser Antilles were acquired by France in 1877. In the 1950s, 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. Stroll through the charming main town of Gustavia, whose beautifully restored houses and colonial facades look out over the sea with its elegant 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 15 Road Bay, Anguilla

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Anguilla is one of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, a British Overseas Territory which also includes several small, uninhabited coral islands. This small island is host to more than 30 superb beaches protected by coral reefs. Enjoy the turquoise blue sea and white sandy beaches of Road Bay as you swim against a backdrop of palm trees.

Day 16 Philipsburg, St. Maarten | Disembark
