Day 9 - La Romana

The large Caribbean island of Hispaniola is located southeast of Cuba and is host to two distinct countries – the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Originally inhabited by Arawak Indians, the island was discovered by Columbus in 1492 and was dubbed Española. Columbus' brother founded the first European city in the New World here and called it Santo Domingo. Today, the city is the capital of the Dominican Republic.

Day 10 - San Juan, Puerto Rico

Begin in Old San Juan, a walled enclave of hundreds of restored 16th and 17th century Spanish colonial buildings. Notice the blue-tinged cobblestone streets; they were once ballast on Spanish ships. Elsewhere, tour the medieval Saint John the Baptist Cathedral, the Museum of Art, and Casa del Libro, a repository of priceless documents.

Day 11 - Tortola

Spend a glorious day swimming at famed Cane Garden Bay Beach, hiking in the rainforest or enjoying a scenic drive around this lush island. Swim with dolphins, go sea kayaking, or head over to Virgin Gorda and climb down to the famous Baths for a day of swimming and exploring this natural phenomenon.

Day 12 - Gustavia, Saint Barthelemy

Tour this beautiful island and marvel at the rugged coastline and its unspoiled, upscale atmosphere, unique in the Caribbean for its Swedish and French heritage. Enjoy the spectacular beaches and resorts, snorkel or dive in the crystalline waters, or see underwater wonders from a semi-submersible marine vessel.

Day 13 - Codrington, Antigua

Antigua’s blissfully undeveloped sister island, Barbuda is the ultimate untrodden paradise. Surrounded by a protective reef, the island features a large lagoon and beautifully calm pink coral and white sand beaches. Barbuda is also home to one of the world’s largest frigate bird sanctuaries with Codrington Lagoon National Park serving as the thriving habitat of about 5,000 of these seabirds. The island’s cliff-lined shoreline reveals neolithic caves, one of which has become recognized for its rock-carved petroglyphs created by Arawak natives. Round out your experience by tucking into freshly caught lobster at one of the laid-back restaurants in town.

Day 14 - Basseterre

With more than a quarter of the island set aside as a national park and a rainforest that is growing rather than shrinking, St. Kitts is a stunning tropical island escape. Soar through the Valley of the Giants on a thrilling zip line, hike to Sofa Rock, which is the cap of a still smoldering volcano, or simply spend the day relaxing on one of the many beaches protected by major coral reefs.

Day 15 - Point-a-Pitre

Sometimes referred to as “Butterfly Island” because of its shape, Guadeloupe is an overseas region of France. Whether visiting the spectacular waterfalls in the jungle of Basse-Terre, taking a scenic hike to the top of La Grande Soufrière volcano or sampling local rum on a distillery tour, you will find a diverse array of activities to enjoy.

Day 16 - Fort de France

Tucked along the island's western shore, Fort-de-France is a Francophile's tropical dream city. French architecture such as the Cathédral St-Louis graces the downtown, the beaches exude a joie de vivre, and several French-built forts perch atop the promontories. All roads lead to La Savane, a serene central park overseen by a statue of Empress Josephine.

Day 17 - Castries

Explore this lush, beautiful island and its bustling capital. Visit the historic La Toc Battery, see banana plantations, and watch silk screening at Bagshaws. Venture south to Soufriere at the base of the Piton peaks and see the unique gingerbread architecture of the marketplace. Take a bike ride through the rain forest to a lovely waterfall, kayak in the deep blue Caribbean, snorkel or dive to spectacular reefs.

Day 18 - St Georges, Grenada

You can smell the cinnamon and nutmeg well before you dock in St. George’s; a tour of the spice estates on Grenada is almost mandatory. You can also take in a visit to a distillery to see how the island’s sugarcane juice is first turned into syrup and then into rum. A ferry trip to sister island Carriacou offers fantastic diving opportunities, and romantics can climb the waterfalls or just relax on the sun-kissed beaches.

Day 19 - Barbados, disembark & fly UK

Discover the many beautiful aspects of this island, from its rugged Atlantic coastline to its beautiful Great Houses, cane fields, exquisite gardens and glorious beaches. See the island's spectacular underwater treasures on your own snorkeling expedition.
