Cruise Itinerary +

DAY 1 – MIAMI

Welcome to Miami and the sweep of South Beach – backdrop to every iconic Miami movie, and forefront of Latin American culture. Stroll through pastel-hued geometric buildings in the art deco district, to graffiti mural masterpieces at Wynwood Walls.

Watch Latino life unfold in Little Havana – the heartbeat of this great city – where walk-up windows sell café cortadito, sweet sugarcane juice, hatuey beer and guava ice-cream. Watch passionate locals discuss politics, play dominoes and smoke cigars.

Shimmy at a salsa class, shop designer boutiques and race marlin and sharks by speedboat. Then slow your pace to uncover rare and endangered species at the Everglades National Park outdoor oasis.

You’ll find the Miami dream is real – and it’s not just Cuban heels that will give you a spring in your step.

Departure at 5.00pm

DAY 2 & 3 – AT SEA

St Lucia

St Lucia

DAY 4 – GUSTAVIA, SAINT BARTHELEMY

Mingle amongst other discerning guests on this French Isle that exudes relaxed glamour. Wander along secluded beaches, harbourside Creole huts, drop into bohemian bars and snorkel gently through warm turquoise waters.

Visit La Tourmente, the peaceful salt ponds and admire uninterrupted views on a local boat trip. And as you sip your second (or third) glass of champagne to the lull of the gentle waves, it might be time to learn the French for “paradise found”.

DAY 5 – POINTE-A-PITRE, GUADELOPE

Pretty Point-à-Pitre flutters between the two wing- like islets of of Guadeloupe’s butterfly-shaped island. Meander through the leafy Victory Square to lively markets and chic boutiques or explore the award-winning Memorial ACTe.

Cross the bridge to Basse-Terre to explore rain forests, waterfalls, French fort ruins and sleepy La Grande Soufrière volcano.

Or venture to the east island, Grand-Terre, to hit the multi-coloured beaches, summit sky-high Castle Point, then seek sanctuary in museums for Nobel-winning poet and diplomat, Alexis Léger for an afternoon of on-point pleasures.

DAY 6 – BEQUIA, SAINT VINCENT & THE GRENADINES

Summon your inner Robinson Crusoe on remote Bequia. Secret lagoons. Castaway picnics. Warm waters in shades of blue that beg to be snorkelled through.

Stake your flag in the sweet Bequia breeze just as the Union Jack did for almost 200 years. Usher in deep tranquillity on lovely Princess Margaret Beach. Ascend Mount Peggy with sunny views of St. Vincent.

Stoll Belmont Boardwalk to Margret Beach for hand-whittled mahogany boat models then prowl the concrete catwalk that runs along Port Elizabeth for home-churned nutmeg ice cream.

Support a sterling turtle sanctuary protecting the rare hawksbill or ferry to nearby Mustique, the favourite holiday romp for Prince William and Kate Middleton.

St Vincent

St Vincent

DAY 7 – CASTRIES, SAINT LUCIA

Wind your way through the romantic island of St. Lucia. Hike up the majestic UNESCO-listed Pitons, wallow in a volcanic mud bath, lounge on black sand beaches, explore botanical gardens and venture into a tropical jungle scattered with banana, coconut and mango plantations.

Choose between calm Caribbean or choppy Atlantic seas to skim through waters by catamaran, private boat or kayak. Refresh beneath a waterfall, watch gliding whales and enjoy freshly caught mahi mahi with local Piton beer.

Or just relax into an inner glow of serenity as you unwind in this tranquil tropical isle.

DAY 8 – ST. JOHNS, ANTIGUA & BARBUDA

An adrenaline rush awaits. Swim with stingrays. Zip-line through lush forests. Walk across a gorge on a scenic suspension bridge.

Sip excellent aged rums. Taste the island with a chef. Or stroll St. St. John’s old town to tour cottages laden with cheerful fretwork.

Explore British forts atop Shirley Heights and Goat Hill. Then rest and rejuvenate with VIP reservations at one of Anguilla’s snow- white beaches and enjoy a cozy lounger and rum drinks.

DAY 9 – SPANISH TOWN (VIRGIN GORDA), BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

Slip into a tranquil, tropical paradise of sparkling waters, coral reefs and powder white beaches. Switch off and slowly shop, swim, snorkel and sip within the peace of sand, sea and sky.

Sink into a beachside boulder-forming pool at The Baths, admire spectacular villas scattered on the Great Mountain, sit back on a safari bus ride or sunbathe aboard a catamaran. Prepare to be mesmerised by this softly lit, sun-drenched heaven.

DAY 10 & 11 – AT SEA

St Barts

St Barts

DAY 12 – MIAMI

Welcome to Miami and the sweep of South Beach – backdrop to every iconic Miami movie, and forefront of Latin American culture. Stroll through pastel-hued geometric buildings in the art deco district, to graffiti mural masterpieces at Wynwood Walls.

Watch Latino life unfold in Little Havana – the heartbeat of this great city – where walk-up windows sell café cortadito, sweet sugarcane juice, hatuey beer and guava ice-cream. Watch passionate locals discuss politics, play dominoes and smoke cigars.

Shimmy at a salsa class, shop designer boutiques and race marlin and sharks by speedboat. Then slow your pace to uncover rare and endangered species at the Everglades National Park outdoor oasis.

You’ll find the Miami dream is real – and it’s not just Cuban heels that will give you a spring in your step.
