WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

The Caribbean & Cuba 18th January 2018 • 14 nights • Sails from Barbados • Braemar • CRUISE ID: M1802 Visit ten diverse destinations in two weeks, and save time by flying straight to the action. Top of the ‘must-visit’ list are Dunn’s River Falls, Harrison’s Cave and the smoking Soufriere Volcano, whilst inspiring experiences include the St. Kitts Scenic Railway and the Rhum Runner boat. Adding a touch of Latin flair, Santiago de Cuba is your key to unlocking the Amsterdam, visit the island’s Butterfly Farm, or simply relax on the glorious beaches. Ocho Rios, Jamaica Situated on the north coast of the island, Ocho Rios’ highlight is sure to be the nearby Dunn’s River Falls – equally rewarding for swimmers and climbers alike. For more natural wonders, Fern Gully is a zigzagging 5km valley full of tropical shrubs, with verdant trees forming a leafy canopy overhead. The town itself is home to shopping malls, golden beaches and a collection of colonial buildings. Santiago de Cuba, Cuba Visiting Santiago de Cuba is your chance to delve deep into Cuban history; it’s regarded as the root of the Cuban Revolution, with the Moncada Barracks and the Plaza de la Revolución key landmarks in Fidel Castro’s rise to power. Elsewhere, head to Céspedes Park and you’ll experience a slice of typical Cuban street life amid an abundance of colonial architecture. 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. Road Town, meanwhile, is typically old-world Caribbean and home to Pussers Bar, the perfect place to try some authentic rum. 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. From only £1,199 per person secrets of the Cuban Revolution. Castries, St. Lucia Dominated by the soaring Twin Pitons – a must-see for any visitor – St. Lucia combines culture and heritage with typical Caribbean relaxation. Vibrant colours and scents explode into life at the Diamond Botanical Gardens & Falls, which were featured in Superman II, while the bubbling volcano of Soufriere and the many gorgeous beaches are well worth exploring too. 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. Along Grenada’s scenic coastline, you’ll enjoy a steel band, ice-cold rum punches, relaxation on the beach and even a limbo competition! Oranjestad, Aruba Oranjestad is a unique destination to discover, it’s the gateway to attractions such as the Casibari rocks – formations unlike any other in the Caribbean – and semi-submarine tours to Antilla, the region’s largest shipwreck.
