Eastern Caribbean Itinerary

Jan. 18 – embark Miami, FL. It makes perfectly good sense to arrive a few days before the cruise and take in all that Miami has to offer. Enjoy the Latin flavor, the music, and restaurants. Visit the magnificent Vizcaya Villa on Millionaire’s Row and Frank Gehry’s exciting New World Center, a performance space that invites passerbys to watch recent concerts on a 7,000 sq. ft. projection screen. Need to do some last minute shopping? You’ll have a choice of luxury stores or bargain malls nearby.

Jan. 19 – fun-filled day at sea.

EL-MORROJan. 20 – San Juan, Puerto Rico. Built in the 1600s for protection, the massive Fort San Felipe El Morro took on British, Dutch, and American naval attacks in subsequent centuries. The fort is now a World Heritage Site. You can walk the thick outer walls and enjoy the view across San Juan Bay. Old San Juan is perfect for strolling … shops, galleries, and a variety of quaint restaurants.

Jan. 21 – Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas. This capital port of the U.S. Virgin Islands is on the coast of a mountainous tropical paradise. Catch a great view of the Caribbean Sea from Drake’s Seat or find your way to Paradise Point and the tram overlooking the harbor. St. Thomas has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. This is also where duty-free shopping rules.

St. MaartenJan. 22 – Philipsburg, St. Maarten. St. Maarten has two sides—a French and a Dutch. You can stroll along the magnificent beaches for hours, browse the endless French boutiques and duty-free shops, or visit sights like the cliffs and caves of Cupecoy Beach. Highly recommended is a visit to the colorful Butterfly Farm where you will see species from around the world.

Jan. 23 and 24 – fun-filled days at sea.

Jan. 25 – disembark Miami, FL.
