Cruise Description

14 Night Cruise sailing from Bridgetown roundtrip aboard Braemar.

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.

Highlights of this cruise:

Bridgetown, Barbados
Barbados has a balmy, tropical climate, making this very British Caribbean island a favourite with well-heeled tourists. Admire the impressive stalactites and stalagmites in Harrison’s Cave; sail the gorgeous azure waters in search of sea turtles; or simply relax on one of the many sandy beaches, soaking up the laid-back atmosphere.

Castries, St. Lucia
St Lucia is the sort of island that travellers to the Caribbean dream about – a small, lush tropical gem. With glorious soft white beaches, St. Lucia is the perfect place to lay back, relax and soak up the sun. Away from the beaches, there are many National Parks with beautiful fauna and native wildlife to explore.

Oranjestad, Aruba
With vividly coloured colonial buildings that mirror those in Amsterdam, Oranjestad’s Dutch heritage is clear for all to see. The capital of Aruba, this city is one of the Caribbean’s true gems, combining European style architecture with all the delights you expect to find on a Caribbean island, including glorious white sand beaches, palm trees and even Flamingos.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica
A former fishing village, Ocho Rios sits around a small bay.

Santiago de Cuba
Santiago nestles in a valley of the tumbling Sierra Maestra Mountains on the southeast shore.

Road Town, Tortola
Tortola was a famous pirate haunt of old, and still retains a surreal, beguiling charm. The capital, Road Town, is typically old-world Caribbean and home to the legendary Pussers Bar, the perfect place to try some authentic Caribbean rum. Nearby Cane Garden Bay is a great place to unwind, with its vast expanse of sugar-white sands.

St John's, Antigua
The great bay of stunning English Harbour and historic Nelson’s Dockyard are two of pretty Antigua’s highlights. The colourful street market in St. John’s, selling flowers, fruit and handicrafts, is a must-see, along with a stop at one of the 365 stunning beaches – one for each day of the year say the Antiguans.

Fort de France, Martinique
Martinique's lively, unmistakably French capital.
