Itinerary
Day 1-4

Bridgetown, Barbados

Following your flight, you will be transferred to the hotel for your 3 night stay.

Barbados is one of the few Caribbean islands solely colonized by one nation. It’s no wonder Bajans describe their country as being “more English than England sheself,” surnames like Worthing and Hastings abound. But look around and you know you’re not in England: rich and fertile tropical fields meet a glistening, azure sea. The soft pastels of old chattel houses blend with the vibrant reds, oranges, and greens of roadside fruit stands. In short, Barbados exudes a charm all its own. Perhaps it is due to Bajan culture, that celebrated blend of English tradition and the African heritage brought to the island by slaves imported to work the sugar plantations. The potent brew which results flavors every aspect of island life, from music, dance and art, to religion, language and food.

Wandering bustling Bridgetown, with its many sights and old colonial buildings, can easily occupy a day. There is good shopping, especially along Broad St and on pedestrian-only Swan St, which buzzes with the rhythms of local culture. The entire downtown area and south to the Garrison were named a Unesco World Heritage site in 2012 for its historical significance.

You will be transferred to the port to board the Grandeur of the Seas for your island-hopping cruise.

Day 5

Scarborough, Trinidad & Tobago

Known as ‘Robinson Crusoe’ island, beautiful Tobago is a tranquil destination with calm waters, fine beaches and amazing wildlife. You can sample Caribbean cooking at its best in Tobago: cream of crab is an aristocrat among soups; red snapper, scallops, swordfish or kingfish could be the ‘catch of the day’ but try the speciality dish, a succulent stew of pork and beef known as pepper pot. Scarborough is dominated by Fort King George, an 18th century fortification named for King George III.

Day 6

Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago

Nestled along the calm, blue-green waters of the Gulf of Paria, Port of Spain is a popular starting point for those looking to explore the best of Trinidad. The city has its fair share of marvels, too – it’s home to a centuries-old fortress, gorgeous botanical gardens and a good number of picturesque churches. And nearby you’ll find plenty of outdoor adventures, from the shaded mangroves and winding silver rivers of the Caroni Wetlands, to the postcard-pretty sweep of shore known as Maracas Beach.

Day 7

Saint George, Grenada

St George’s is one of the most picturesque towns in the Caribbean. It’s a fabulous place to explore on foot, from handsome old buildings to the Carenage harbour. Interesting shops and cafes dot the narrow and busy streets.

Day 8

Kingstown, St Vincent

Secluded white sand beaches lapped by sparkling waters, vibrant coral reefs and hiking trails through lush, emerald jungles – St Vincent and the Grenadines embody what most people think of when picturing the perfect Caribbean getaway. Kingstown, St Vincent’s capital and main port, is a beautiful place to kick off your exploration of the main island’s many wonders. With its beautiful botanical gardens, charming 19th-century churches, lively produce market and rainforest rambles, it has plenty to keep you busy in between beach breaks.

Day 9

Roseau, Dominica

Roseau (rose-oh) is Dominica’s compact, noisy, chaotic but vibrant capital, situated on the southwest coast along the Roseau River. Reggae music blares through the narrow streets while people zip around in the daytime, but at night the town all but empties.
Roseau’s streets are lined with historic stone-and-wood buildings in states ranging from ramshackle to elegant. Look closely and you’ll spot a blend of French, Spanish and English architectural elements such as porticoes, louvers, hurricane shutters and verandas.

Roseau is best explored on foot, especially since many sights are clustered around the cruise-ship dock along Dame Eugenia Charles Blvd (also known as Bayfront). The most historic section is the French Quarter, south of King George V St. A bit further south is the coastal suburbs of Newtown, Citronier and Castle Comfort. The latter especially has a number of dive operators and dive lodges.

Day 10

Castries, St. Lucia

The mountainous island of St. Lucia with it’s distinctive Pitons provides a splendid backdrop to the thriving capital, Castries. Enjoy the vibrant Creole atmosphere and hustle and bustle of this colourful town or venture further afield to explore this most scenic of Caribbean Islands.

Day 11

Bridgetown, Barbados

Following your cruise, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight back to Ireland.
