The Best of the Caribbean 5th January 2017 • 14 nights • Sails from Barbados • Braemar • CRUISE ID: M1701 Showcasing the cream of the Caribbean crop, this superb sailing delivers the gorgeous islands of Grenada, St. Kitts and Antigua, among many others. There’s an abundance of natural attractions, including the lush rainforests of Dominica; coral reefs teeming with tropical sea life; magnificent Harrison’s Cave; the soaring Twin Pitons in St. Lucia; and Kingstown, St. Vincent Kingstown, affectionately known as the ‘City of Arches’, is an unspoilt gem waiting to be explored: discover the unique black-sand beaches; venture to the Botanical Gardens, bursting with vibrant colours and tropical flora; or opt for a stroll along the pretty waterfront. Off the beaten track, the Vermont Nature Trail may bring encounters with parrots, warblers, hummingbirds and more. Roseau, Dominica The ever-animated Dominican capital oozes elegance, from the narrow, refined streets to the gleaming waterfront, where simply unforgettable views over the Caribbean Sea will hold you spellbound. Roseau is also a convenient gateway to the island’s exotic interior, particularly the UNESCO-listed Morne Trois Pitons National Park – don’t miss the beautiful Emerald Pool. Basseterre, St. Kitts The elegant St. Kitts capital, Basseterre, is proudly home to some of the oldest buildings in the Caribbean. Take a tour to Brimstone Hill Fortress to admire spectacular views across the island, or to the natural wonders in the Botanical Gardens of Nevis. Alternatively, just relax on one of the tranquil beaches in the balmy climate. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Travel on the St. Kitts Scenic Railway. Have your camera ready to capture the incredible scenery that greets you en route. Road Town, Tortola Tortola was a famous pirate haunt of old, and still exhibits an air of mystery. Uncover the swashbuckling legends surrounding the area; unwind on the vast sugar-white sands; or enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with dolphins in the azure waters. From only £1,199 per person beautiful, sandy beaches galore. Bridgetown, Barbados The laid-back atmosphere of Barbados is just one of many reasons why tourists flock to this very British Caribbean island. Go in search of sea turtles in the shimmering waters; venture to Harrison’s Cave and marvel at the impressive stalactites and stalagmites; or simply unwind on one of the many palm-fringed beaches. Scarborough, Tobago Scarborough is an animated city, with bustling shopping streets and a colourful market. Seek out the calmer side though, and you’ll uncover many places to relax and grab a bite to eat or soak up the sunshine. The main historical attraction is the 18th century Fort King George, which affords superb views of the city and the sea. St. George’s, Grenada An infusion of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and vanilla fills the air around Grenada – the ‘Spice Island’. Alongside volcanic crater lakes and an array of idyllic beaches, a large part of the stunning interior includes Grand Etang National Park. This natural paradise of soaring mountains, tumbling waterfalls, lush rainforest and flourishing birdlife is a hotbed for hiking and trekking. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Get set for a true Caribbean experience aboard the legendary Rhum Runner boat.
