Itinerary

Description

Escape to the Caribbean and indulge in a slice of paradise as you enjoy time to relax and explore Barbados before you join the cruise ship and hop between a string of stunning islands. With opportunities to marvel at breathtaking natural wonders, relax on glorious beaches, take a dip in warm, azure waters and explore charming cities, you’re in for an authentic, typically Caribbean experience.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 – Home pickup & flight to Barbados / Days 2-4 – At leisure at the Turtle Beach Hotel, Barbados

A uniformed chauffeur will collect you from home for your comfortable journey in a top specification car so you can begin your holiday in style. On arrival at the airport, check in for your flight to Barbados. From Barbados airport, we transfer to the Turtle Beach Hotel, where we enjoy a few days at leisure to relax, enjoy the facilities and explore the island before we begin our cruise.

Day 5 – Embarkation in Bridgetown

After a morning at leisure, we depart for Bridgetown Port where we board the Braemar and begin our journey, taking time to relax in our cabins or on deck and enjoying the use of the ship’s range of leisure facilities.

Day 6 – Castries, St Lucia

Castries, the capital of the island nation of St Lucia, is known for its palm-lined, soft, white Vigie Beach and this is our port of call today. Like St Lucia itself, the city combines heritage and culture with peace, relaxation and tranquillity, and Castries is a gateway to St Lucia’s wealth of national parks with vast forests, native plants and wildlife. The city’s streets are easy to navigate. Leafy Derek Walcott Square – named after a native noble laureate – is home to a 400-year-old Samaan tree and the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception built in 1897. The nearby market in Jeremie Street, sells a wide range of items including fresh local fruit.

Day 7 – Basseterre, St Kitts

Today we moor up in Basseterre. With some of the oldest colonial buildings in the Caribbean, the elegant St Kitts and Nevis capital of Basseterre is a beautiful town bursting with history. Established by the French in the 17th century, and claimed by the British following the Napoleonic War, much of Basseterre’s original Georgian architecture still stands and begs to be explored. The domed Old Treasury Building on the waterfront – now the National Museum – is worth a visit, as is the Victorian Berkeley Memorial Clock, a four-face, cast-iron tower that sits on the Circus, an original 19th-century traffic roundabout. St George’s, an Anglican church originally built by the French, has been destroyed by fire several times, and was rebuilt to its present form in 1869.

Day 8 – St John's, Antigua and Barbuda

Today we visit St John’s, capital city of Antigua and Barbuda, often referred to as the crown jewels of the Caribbean. With its large selection of beaches, typically hot climate and an array of cool seaside bars, the city of St John’s is a sun worshipper’s paradise. In the city itself, the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda has exhibits on island history and St John’s Cathedral, a 19th-century Anglican Church, sits sweetly on a hill near the 17th-century Government House. The city’s vibrant red and yellow colonial buildings reflect the personality and warm welcome from locals, while a monument to the nation’s founder, V.C. Bird, is next to the colourful street market which sells flowers, fruit and handicrafts.


Day 9 – Philipsburg, St Maarten, Netherlands Antilles

Philipsburg is the capital of the Dutch half of St Maarten, a Caribbean island amicably shared between Holland and France for centuries and this is our port of call today. The town is known as a shopper’s paradise, while its charming sandy beach, studded with colourful clapboard restaurants and outdoor cafés, is accessible via water taxi. Front Street, Philipsburg’s long main street, is festooned with shops, but the alleys and courtyards down to Back Street are also worth exploring. There are some stylish restaurants, but the Lo-Lo huts, which sell grilled chicken, fish and cakes from home-made barbecues, are great for a cheap snack of authentic Caribbean food.

Days 10-15 – At Sea

Day 16– Ponta Delgada, Azores

After a relaxing time crossing the Atlantic and making use of the ship’s facilities, we arrive in Ponta Delgada, the main town on the island of São Miguel and the capital of the Azores archipelago of Portugal. The town’s cosmopolitan atmosphere belies its 500 year history and the surrounding island boasts beautiful lakes, mountains, sandy beaches and the stunning crater lakes of the extinct Sete Cidades volcano. Ponta Delgada’s fine collection of buildings, narrow cobbled streets and squares are a firm reminder that this was once a key staging post between Europe and the Americas. Intermingled are cool parks, enchanting squares, a modern marina, restaurants and waterside cafés. Its lakeside, whitewashed houses with terracotta roofs look out to enchanting mountain plains.

Days 17 & 18 – At Sea

Day 19 – La Coruña, Spain

Following two days at sea, we have time in the city of La Coruña, the capital of the province and a busy seaport situated in the Galicia region of northwest Spain. La Coruña boasts an impressive seafront promenade, beautiful beaches and a host of attractions such as the Domus Museum, the Casa del Hombre and Torre De Hercules – said to be the only Roman lighthouse in existence – which offers sweeping coastal views from the top of its 60 metre high tower. The Paseo Marítimo, a lovely 13km walkway and bike path, runs from the port, around the peninsula, and along the ocean beaches. The compact Ciudad Vieja – La Coruña’s old quarter – is a must-visit area. Often referred to as “the city” by the locals, the medieval centre contains remains of the centuries-old Roman wall that once protected it. Beyond the historic city is a proud, modern metropolis, which boasts a superb food scene and a buzzing nightlife. The world’s best picnic food, empanadas, and the locally produced beer, Estrella, both demand trying. 

Day 20 – At Sea / Day 21 – Disembarkation in Southampton

After a day at leisure on the ship, we arrive in Southampton where we disembark and are met by our chauffeur for the journey home – a luxurious and stress-free way to end the holiday.
