Voyage to the Caribbean
Braemar • M1730 • Prices from £899.00 (cruise only)
Join Braemar on a wonderful voyage to the Caribbean and discover unforgettable sights and experiences at the string of sun-kissed paradise islands – the perfect escape as the cold winter weather takes hold back home.
Before cruising to the Caribbean you’ll sail south to the Portuguese island of Madeira. Admire the stunning scenery via the unique levada irrigation network; explore beautiful botanic gardens; and enjoy a glass of local sweet wine at the world-famous Reid’s Hotel during an overnight stay in Funchal. Then after gliding across the Atlantic in pure comfort aboard Braemar, you’ll have the chance to soak up the sunshine on one of Antigua’s 365 gorgeous beaches. Docking in St. John’s, you’ll also be perfectly placed to discover the island’s historic highlights, including the English Harbour and the enchanting Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. Don’t miss the sensational views on offer from the 490 feet-high Shirley Heights lookout.
In Basseterre some of the Caribbean’s oldest buildings await your discovery, such as the UNESCO-listed Brimstone Hill Fortress. Be sure to hop on board the St. Kitts Scenic Railway – one of the world’s greatest train journeys – to capture wonderful, unspoilt views of the island’s incredible scenery. During a full-day in Castries you can immerse yourself in the culture, heritage and beauty of St. Lucia. Take a trip to see the soaring Twin Pitons, or perhaps take in the vibrant colours and scents of the Diamond Botanical Gardens & Waterfalls. Finally in Barbados, sample the laid-back atmosphere of Bridgetown; swim with sea turtles in the shimmering waters; marvel at the stalactites and stalagmites in Harrison’s Cave; or simply enjoy the balmy Caribbean climate for the final time before heading home.
