Day 1 - Barbados

Arrive: Sun 18 December 2022 / Depart: Sun 18 December 2022 at 20:00

A hypnotic calypso isle, Barbados is the ultimate Caribbean dream. And at just 21 miles by 14 miles, the island really is your oyster. Of course, it’s most famous for its palm-fringed beaches, but there’s more than talcum powder sands here. We’re talking a duty-free shopping scene. Gorgeous green countryside. And sights that are second to none. In a coconut shell, it’s the small island with a big fan base.......

Day 2 - At Sea

Day 3 - Road Harbour, Tortola

Arrive: Tue 20 December 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Tue 20 December 2022 at 18:00

Nature’s the star attraction in the British Virgin Islands. We dock at Tortola, the biggest isle. Here, ancient rainforests hog the limelight, beautiful botanical gardens vie for your attention, and opal-white beaches like Apple Bay and Smuggler’s Cove really steal the show. It’s wild. It’s wondrous. It’s waiting.......

Day 4 - Philipsburg, St Maarten

Arrive: Wed 21 December 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Wed 21 December 2022 at 18:00

Two flags rule over this tiny isle – the French and the Dutch. Philipsburg is the Dutch capital and the place to head for a serious shopping splurge. Marigot, meanwhile, is the French capital, where you can divide your time between bistros and boutiques. Add to the mix dreamy Caribbean coves, kaleidoscopic reefs and lashings of sunshine and you’ve got all the ingredients for tropical bliss.......

Day 5 - Basseterre

Arrive: Thu 22 December 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Thu 22 December 2022 at 18:00

One of the British Leeward Islands, St Kitts is one of the Caribbean’s pearls. Once an illustrious sugar colony, it now focuses its efforts on being a tropical paradise. And it excels in every sense, with its seductive blend of blonde sands and duck-egg blue seas. Away from the shores though, you’ll find plenty of historic sights to tick off your checklist. Or why not pop across to the neighbouring island of Nevis, which is just three kilometres over The Narrows channel?......

Day 6 - St John's, Antigua

Arrive: Fri 23 December 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Fri 23 December 2022 at 18:00

If you’re a big fan of the beach, prepare to lose your heart to this place. Antiguans like to boast they have a different one for every day of the year. Without doubt, porcelain, palm-fringed sands and still turquoise waters are the star of this island show. But that’s not all Antigua’s got to boast about. Get ready for towns in a rainbow riot of colours. Quiet countryside that slumbers in the sunshine. And cuisine as sublime as those moon-white shores......

Day 7 - Roseau

Arrive: Sat 24 December 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Sat 24 December 2022 at 17:00

Known as the island of waterfalls, Dominica is as green as it is unspoilt. Fairly off the tourist trail, this exotic isle is a paradise for nature lovers. In fact, it’s one of the Caribbean hotspots for scuba-diving and rainforest trekking. And of course, it’s got some superb beaches. Not the snow-white variety you’d expect, but dramatic volcanic sweeps and secluded coves hidden by greenery. Have your camera at the......

Day 8 - Barbados

Arrive: Sun 25 December 2022 / Depart: Sun 25 December 2022 at 20:00

A hypnotic calypso isle, Barbados is the ultimate Caribbean dream. And at just 21 miles by 14 miles, the island really is your oyster. Of course, it’s most famous for its palm-fringed beaches, but there’s more than talcum powder sands here. We’re talking a duty-free shopping scene. Gorgeous green countryside. And sights that are second to none. In a coconut shell, it’s the small island with a big fan base.......

Day 9 - At Sea

Day 10 - Willemstad, Curacao

Arrive: Tue 27 December 2022 at 09:00 / Depart: Tue 27 December 2022 at 20:00

This little Dutch island is slowly beginning to creep onto the tourist radar, and for good reason. It offers up an unbeatable mix of footprint-free beaches and pretty colonial towns. The storybook port of Willemstad leads the pack, with its candy-coloured, red-roofed houses that gild the downtown area. It’s such an impressive sight, UNESCO have even granted the town a place on its World Heritage list.......

Day 11 - Oranjestad, Aruba

Arrive: Wed 28 December 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Wed 28 December 2022 at 20:00

Nowhere showcases Aruba’s Dutch roots quite like Oranjestad. With its gable-topped houses and colonial clock towers, the island’s good-looking capital is like a little slice of Amsterdam. Of course, it’s got some only-in-the-Caribbean touches, too. Palm trees flutter in the breeze. Hourglass-fine sands stretch on for miles. And colourful wooden huts serve up a winning combination of fresh seafood and strong rum cocktails.......

Day 12 - Kralendijk,Bonaire

Arrive: Thu 29 December 2022 at 07:00 / Depart: Thu 29 December 2022 at 13:00

If you’re in any doubt concerning what Bonaire’s all about, just look at an island number plate – above every registration number you’ll find the words ‘Divers’ Paradise’. This island in the Leeward Antilles is consistently rated as one of the best dive and snorkelling destinations in the world. Shipwrecks, tropical fish and seahorses are ripe in the waters that surround the island. Above the waterline, meanwhile, there are wild flamingo herds to see and craggy national parks to explore.

Day 13 - St Georges, Grenada

Arrive: Fri 30 December 2022 at 13:30 / Depart: Fri 30 December 2022 at 20:00

Grenada can’t fail to spice things up. It’s known as the ‘Spice Island’ after all. Wherever you head, the fragrant scent of ginger, almond, nutmeg and vanilla follows you. Plus you can see cinnamon, cocoa beans and every tropical fruit imaginable growing here. Alongside its basket of goodies, this lush landscape hides Bounty-like beaches, mountain ranges and thick rainforests. And don’t miss a wander around St George's, one of the Caribbean’s prettiest harbours, with its pastel-coloured buildings, cobbled streets and even the odd lipstick-red London phone box.......

Day 14 - Castries

Arrive: Sat 31 December 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Sat 31 December 2022 at 18:00

This truly tropical isle is one of the prettiest in the Caribbean. Think glossy rainforests showered in sunbeams. Vivid yellow banana plantations. And striking, syrup-coloured sands that simply demand your tanning time. The coral reefs are out of this world, too. Be dazzled by the rainbow of colours hidden beneath the waves, then let the St Lucian sun gently dry your skin. For a paradise escape, this place comes up trumps every time.......

Day 15 - Barbados

Arrive: Sun 01 January 2023 at 07:00 / Depart: Sun 01 January 2023

A hypnotic calypso isle, Barbados is the ultimate Caribbean dream. And at just 21 miles by 14 miles, the island really is your oyster. Of course, it’s most famous for its palm-fringed beaches, but there’s more than talcum powder sands here. We’re talking a duty-free shopping scene. Gorgeous green countryside. And sights that are second to none. In a coconut shell, it’s the small island with a big fan base.......
