Day 1 – Bridgetown, Barbados
With a consistency uncommon in the Caribbean, the Union Jack flew over “Little England” for more than 300 years until it gained independence in 1966. Beyond the town, plantation houses, rum distilleries, and colorful chattel houses dot the landscape, along with natural wonders such as Harrison’s Cave, a fairyland of stalactites, stalagmites, and even underground rivers cascading into underground lakes.

Day 2 – Pigeon Island/ Soufriere, St Lucia
The dramatic approach to St. Lucia, with its iconic twin Pitons rising from the sea, hints at the wonders ahead. The rain forest is home to giant primeval ferns, wild orchids, and birds of paradise, while flamboyantly colored birds like the indigenous St. Lucia parrot fly overhead.

Day 3 – At sea
This is your invitation to a day of indulgence. Treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience. Stretch out by the pool with your favorite beverage.Dine in sumptuous casual style, or wrap yourself in that comfy waffle-weave robe and enjoy your meal in the privacy of your beautiful stateroom. Your delight is our single priority for your day at sea.

Day 4 – St George’s, Grenada
St. George’s is one of, if not the loveliest city in the West Indies. With its translucent waters, it may be hard to tear yourself away from the sea, but more attractions await inland including lush Grand Etang National Park with its chipmunk-cheeked mona monkeys, fragrant spice plantations, and the island’s colonial history at Fort Frederick and Fort George.

Day 5 – Tobago Cays, St Vicent, Grenadines
A highlight of our cruise is the port that’s not a port: Tobago Cays. This marine park includes uninhabited islands perfect for your Robinson Crusoe fantasies, a wealth of marine life, and pristine beaches with shallow water perfect for beginners learning to snorkel.

Day 6 – Mayreau, St Vicent Grenadines
At one and a half square miles, Mayreau has room for just one small village, one road, a population of about 300, and far more than its share of spectacular beaches.

Day 7 – Bequia, St Vicent, Grenadines
Life moves slowly in Bequia and the only ships in port are those small enough to anchor alongside the yachts and fishing boats in Admiralty Bay. The island was once an active whaling station, and virtually every family has some connection to the sea.

Day 8 – Bridgetown, Barbados
With a consistency uncommon in the Caribbean, the Union Jack flew over “Little England” for more than 300 years until it gained independence in 1966. Beyond the town, plantation houses, rum distilleries, and colorful chattel houses dot the landscape, along with natural wonders such as Harrison’s Cave, a fairyland of stalactites, stalagmites, and even underground rivers cascading into underground lakes.
