Day 1: Fort-de-France, Martinique | Embark

Lush rainforest and black lava beaches in the north, golden bays in the south, and in between the lively capital Fort-de-France: Martinique offers its guests a Caribbean mix that seems to come straight out of a picture book. The mountainous, green Antillean island is a French overseas department, and its delightful savoir-vivre intermingles with the Creole zest for life. Already, its native inhabitants called Martinique the "island of flowers" because of its fascinating flora. The fragrant flowers are still extremely attractive today, both to human visitors and to the iridescent hummingbirds that buzz through the tropical greenery at lightning speed.

Day 2: Day beneath full sails

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Climbing the rigging, untying ropes, setting sails—today is all about sailing. It's time to lean back and relax in the deck chair and watch the passionate crew hoisting the sails by hand.

Day 3: St. George's, Grenada

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Beautiful beaches, aromatic spice plantations, dense rainforests, waterfalls, and a volcano that has long been extinct tower picturesquely over this stunningly beautiful island. For many people, Grenada is the incarnation of a tropical paradise, and St. George's is the most beautiful little port in the Grenadines. All around the horseshoe-shaped bay are numerous houses that remind you of colonial times. There is a 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 4: Union Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Right to the south of the Grenadines are Union Island and the Tobago Cays. Union Island was given the evocative name "the Tahiti of the West Indies" thanks to its volcanic silhouette. Four small, uninhabited islands, surrounded by a protective horseshoe-shaped coral reef, form the Tobago Cays. The Horseshoe Reef holds the Atlantic swell at bay, and its unique animal and plant life make it an ideal place for snorkeling. The lagoon between the islets shimmers in all shades from turquoise through emerald green and invites you to take a dip at the fantastic beaches.

Day 5: Port Elizabeth, Bequia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bequia is actually the largest island in the Grenadines, but it is still small and tranquil at just 18 square kilometers (87 square miles) in size. 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 royals. On the eastern coast, you can find the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, which focuses on rearing and caring for endangered turtles.

Day 6: Soufriere, Saint 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 sulfur springs demonstrate the power of the earth's core and still bubble up. In the Botanical Gardens, natural abundance is combined with artistic arrangements to create a colorful tropical paradise. Some people claim that Josephine, who later became Napoleon's wife, used to bathe in the little pool in the garden.

Day 7: Day beneath full sails

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Just enjoy the perfect sailing conditions with fitness, cosmetics, massage, or a good book in a teak chair.

Day 8-9: Gustavia, St Barthélemy

  • 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. When the first estate was acquired by the banker David Rockefeller in 1957, the island's future was finally sealed. 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. You can stroll through the charming main town of Gustavia, whose beautifully restored houses and colonial facades look out over the sea with its elegant superyachts, 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 10: Sir Francis Drake Channel | White Bay, Jost van Dyke

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Sir Francis Drake Channel, where swords were once crossed, is now one of the most beautiful sailing spots. Jost van Dyke, the smallest of the main islands in the British Virgin Islands, is a mountainous volcanic object of beauty with fewer than 300 inhabitants. One of them, Foxy, has been mixing his cocktails since 1968, and the bar of the same name enjoys a legendary reputation as perhaps the most famous beach bar in the Lesser Antilles. The island's past is less reputable; it was named by a Dutch pirate. The island gives its most beautiful treasures to all who visit: fine sand, green palm trees, colorful beach bars, and the luminous blue of the sea.

Day 11-12: North Sound, Virgin Gorda

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Explorers and privateers once crossed swords in the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Nowadays, the sea around the British Virgin Islands is one of the world's best sailing areas. Heavenly bays, gorgeous beaches, idyllic anchoring spots, smart 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, you can find "The Baths", one of nature's most beautiful oddities, in the National Park. Ground to a sphere and polished to a shine, the huge granite formations on the beach and in the water create a multi-branched labyrinth of giant boulders.

Day 13-14: Terre-de-Haut, Îles des Saintes

  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Îles des Saintes is a small archipelago that was disputed for a long time until it finally became French in 1816. In the charming main town of Terre-de-Haut, you can take a delightful stroll along the waterside promenade. Boutiques, cafés, bars, and restaurants invite you to browse and spend some time here. The 'savoir vivre' takes place against a backdrop lit up in all the pastel shades of the Caribbean. Fort Napoleon is set high above the bay, and your 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 15: Fort-de-France, Martinique | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Lush rainforest and black lava beaches in the north, golden bays in the south, and in between the lively capital Fort-de-France: Martinique offers its guests a Caribbean mix that seems to come straight out of a picture book. The mountainous, green Antillean island is a French overseas department, and its delightful savoir-vivre intermingles with the Creole zest for life. Already, its native inhabitants called Martinique the "island of flowers" because of its fascinating flora. The fragrant flowers are still extremely attractive today, both to human visitors and to the iridescent hummingbirds that buzz through the tropical greenery at lightning speed.

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!
