Stunning sunsets, turquoise seas, and pristine beaches – the Caribbean is one of our favorite destinations. Consider visiting on a cruise, a great way to see multiple islands on the same trip.
Ultra-luxury line Seabourn does the Caribbean exceptionally well. In addition to their top-notch on-board accommodations, including gourmet cuisine, all-inclusive beverages, and attentive service, their thoughtful itineraries visit many lesser-known gems.
Here are a few of the unique ports of call that Seabourn will visit this season:
- Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe – Decidedly French in aspect and attitude. The Cathedral is a national monument of France. Hike along a rainforest trail to the Carbet waterfalls for a refreshing plunge in its pool.
- Charlestown, Nevis – Pretty and unassuming, Charlestown might be the definition of laid back. Once called Bath Bay for the curative waters of a local stream, you’ll see the birthplace of recent Broadway sensation, Alexander Hamilton as well as the unique architecture.
- Port Elizabeth, Bequia – It’s one of the few islands in the Caribbean whose name is from the native Arawak language, meaning “Island in the Clouds.” Have a drink at the Whale Boner Bar and Restaurant on the waterfront where the bar stools are made from whale vertebrae, or take a walk on the harborside trail to Princess Margaret Beach.
- Saline Bay, Mayreau – Mayreau is the only inhabited one of the Tobago Cays, a ring of islets encircling a shallow lagoon that is one of the Caribbean’s most favored yachting harbors. The eel-grass that lines the bottom of the lagoon attracts sea turtles, and there are stretches of coral reef that teem with colorful fish.
- George’s, Grenada – This is the Spice Island: cloves, cinnamon, bay, nutmeg, mace and allspice orchards dot the green hills.
