Meet Braemar in Bridgetown and cruise to a collection of stunning Caribbean islands to explore incredible untouched landscapes, immerse yourself in the engrossing local culture, and simply relax on gorgeous sun-drenched beaches – the perfect way to start the New Year in style.

See St. Lucia’s soaring Twin Pitons peaks and feel the heat of the bubbling sulphur springs at Soufrière on tours from Castries; indulge in a spot of birdwatching in the dense rainforests of Grand Etang National Park during a day in St. George’s, where you could also hop on board the Rhum Runner boat to sip rum and admire Grenada’s coastal scenery; and delve into the Dutch heritage of Oranjestad, Aruba before sailing to Jamaica. Calling into Ocho Rios, the spectacular Dunn’s River falls and Eden Falls will be within reach; while the Fern Gully is also well worth visiting to take in the mountain scenery and tropical fauna and flora. Thrill seekers won’t want to miss the opportunity to go river rafting on the picturesque Martha Brae.

In Cuba you’ll discover a multitude of architectural delights in Santiago de Cuba, which is overlooked by the majestic Sierra Maestra Mountains. Visit the Moncada Barracks and the Plaza de la Revolucion – key landmarks from the Cuban Revolution – or perhaps head to Céspedes Park and sample a slice of Cuban culture amid fine colonial structures. Don’t miss the once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim with dolphins in Tortola, where you could also sample authentic Caribbean rum at the world-famous Pussers Bar; and be sure to ride the St. Kitts Scenic Railway – one of the greatest and most picturesque train journeys in the world – from Basseterre. The highlights of Antigua await you during a day in St. John’s, including the stunning English Harbour, historic Nelson’s Dockyard and 365 beautiful beaches. Finally, after immersing yourself in the French style and culture of Martinique, you’ll sail back to Barbados to enjoy the gorgeous Caribbean sunshine for one last time.

Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.
