Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Sun 13 Jan 2013 San Juan, Puerto Rico 8.30pm
South Caribbean Cruise San Juan, the capital and most populous city of Puerto Rico, is the oldest city on US territory. It is the Caribbean commercial hub, best known for its beautifully restored historic district of Old San Juan. It is situated on a rocky peninsula girded by thick walls jutting into the crashing Atlantic surf. With its 400 restored buildings from the 16th and 17th century Spanish colonial period, this area is steeped in history. Add to this the expansive stretches of smooth clean beaches, boutiques, and pleasant restaurants, and one understands why this port is the heart of the island’s tourism.

Take time to stroll along the narrow cobblestone streets and investigate the pastel-coloured buildings, restaurants, museums and mansions. Explore El Morro, the dramatic fortress on a rocky promontory with its barracks, dungeons, turrets, towers and tunnels. The massive Castillo de San Cristobal with its series of fortifications, and the World Heritage Site La Fortaleza, comprising a forty room mansion that was completed in 1540, are also well worth visiting. Some interesting neighbourhoods are well worth your time. They include: the ‘seen-it-all’ Condado; tranquil Ocean Park; gritty Santurce, relaunched with art galleries after a two-decade-long depression; and swanky Isla Verde awash with resort hotels and casinos.

There are many statues and monuments to be appreciated including: the Citizen of the Americas, a statue of Christopher Columbus, and one of the first native Puerto Rican who served as governor, to name but a few. The San Juan Cemetery is considered a beautiful place of great historical interest, as is the El Capitolio de Puerto Rico, a powerful symbol of self-government. Its interior design highlights Puerto Rico’s history through the medium of murals. Above all you will find yourself surrounded by warm and friendly people.

2 Mon 14 Jan 2013 St Croix, US Virgin Islands 8.00am 5.00pm
South Caribbean Cruise Saint Croix is the largest of the US Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. Spain, Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, the Knights of Malta, Denmark and the United States all played a role in its past, and brought their influence to this small island. This has resulted in a fascinating culture that is best experienced through its arts, crafts, and music, as well as the festivals and cultural events that are held throughout the year. Visitors can also absorb the beauty of its gorgeous beaches, the surprisingly diverse landscape, and take the time to explore the two main towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted.

St Croix is a sensational setting for enjoying a range of water-activities that include sailing lessons, snorkelling, and dving among vibrant reefs just minutes away from fascinating sunken ships. Take the opportunity to fly a kite on the beach, and if energetic go kayaking. Another alternative is to explore the island scenery with an eco-tour, safari tour, or horseback ride. Those interested in the island’s rich and lengthy history will be sure to visit the many museums, churches and other historical sites.

As can be imagined, St Croix offers cuisines that span the globe, from French to Thai to Caribbean fusion, although there are also plentiful cafes, pizzerias and American restaurants. The two charming towns offer countless duty-free stores to satisfy eager shoppers. All will appreciate this tropical destination with its lush green hills, warm aquamarine water, and sugar-white sand beaches.

3 Tue 15 Jan 2013 St Martin, St-Martin / St Maarten 8.00am 5.00pm
South Caribbean Cruise The island of Saint Martin (Sint Maarten) was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, and is located about 250 km north of Guadeloupe. Since February 2007, after a poll, it has become a French Territorial Collectivity. Previously divided between the Dutch and the French, the peaceful cohabitation of the two communities has resulted in this tiny island becoming an extremely popular holiday and duty-free shopping destination in the Caribbean. Probably most famous for its delightful variety of 37 palm-treed beaches that even include salt-water ponds, one can simply laze, or go snorkelling and scuba diving in the coral reefs, or windsurfing, and even parasailing.

Renowned for its elegance and variety of cuisine, there are many restaurants and bistros, but Grand Case, with its small wooden ‘gingerbread style’ cottages, is considered the gourmet capital of the island. All the great chefs, European, American, or Asian vie to compete in this gourmet capital of the Caribbean, creating cuisines equal to the best of Paris or New York. Above all, vacationers have the opportunity to enjoy three distinct cultures on one island. There is the delightfulness and soberness of the Dutch on one side, the savoir-faire of the French on the other, and the blending of both with exotic native heritage.

Motorboats and sail boats offer excursions, while those who enjoy game fishing are sure to appreciate the variety of fish found in the offshore waters. Visit the historical Museum of Saint Martin and then possibly take a climb to the historic Fort Louis, built in 1767. Traces of Saint Martin's history can also be found in the other villages of the island. The pastel-coloured houses and tulips in Phillipsburg tell their own story, while in Quartier d'Orléans, the original settlement of the French on the island, much of the old structures and atmosphere has been preserved.

4 Wed 16 Jan 2013 St John's, Antigua and Barbuda 8.00am 5.00pm
South Caribbean Cruise St. John’s, the capital of the island nation of Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean, sits on the NW coast of the tropical island of Antigua that is home to innumerable magnificent beaches. This wonderland of shopping and restaurants is a great spot to soak up the sun throughout the year. St.John’s reflects its British heritage with such edifices as Fort Barrington that looms dramatically over the shoreline, and Fort James built in the 17th Century. Then there’s the national sport of cricket that highlights its predominantly British culture. However, above all, it feels more like a tropical paradise. Within walking distance of the pier are fascinating small streets with traditional shops, and restored colonial buildings which line the waterfront. All are dominated by the evocative white neo-baroque towers of the well known St John’s Cathedral. Antigua and Barbuda are aptly named the ‘Gateway to the Caribbean’.

To appreciate the early history of the islands, be sure to visit the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda, where thought-provoking replicas and models cleverly depict the history of the Caribbean. The Cedar Valley Golf Course, known for its sweeping views of the sea, offers a very enjoyable change for many. The colourful and different statue of the respected elder statesman of Antigua & Barbuda, V C Bird, has resulted in a wide range of opinions, and should not be missed. Of special interest is the sad piece of history that can be seen at Betty’s Hope, where a sugar plantation set up in 1674 is preserved as a monument to the slaves whose labour was exploited.

An alternative is to take a day trip on the Barbuda Express, an enjoyable ferry ride. The staff is very attentive, so with music playing the whole time visitors have a lot of fun singing along. Then they delight in the Island’s amazingly secluded pink sand beaches. There are also tours that provide a delightful sampling of what the Barbuda Island has to offer. These may include the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, Low Bay that is regarded as one of the top ten beaches in the world, and the caves at Two Foot Bay, to name but a few of this island’s highlights.

5 Thu 17 Jan 2013 Castries, St Lucia 8.00am 5.00pm
South Caribbean Cruise Castries is the capital of the volcanic island country of Saint Lucia, part of the Lesser Antilles in the eastern Caribbean Sea. Its popularity stems from the tropical weather (the dry season runs from December through May), scenery, and numerous beaches. Saint Lucia's population is predominantly of African and mixed African-European descent, and while the official language is English, French-Creole is spoken by 95% of the population. North of downtown and across the harbour is Vigie Peninsula, host to the island's largest duty-free complex, where many tourists spend the entire day. The area around Castries is well worth exploring, either by car or bus.

Sightseers admire murals painted by a local artist inside the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and relax in Derek Walcott Square, named for the St. Lucian Nobel-prize-winning poet. Atop the 253m high Morne Fortune (Hill of Good Luck) is Fort Charlotte - where the French and English battled over control of the island - visitors take in panoramic vistas. Also visit the City Library and Government House. Interestingly, each May since 1991 Saint Lucia has hosted an internationally renowned Jazz Festival. For rum lovers, how about a behind-the-scenes tour of a traditional distillery, complete with a chance to taste the island’s famous export.

From the port at Castries, take a trip to the ‘drive-in’ volcano and Sulphur Springs, where the crater bubbles with hot sulphur springs, or the beautiful tropical surroundings of Diamond Botanical Gardens Waterfall and Mineral Baths. Also visit the magnificent world heritage site of the twin peaks, The Pitons. Other tourist attractions include the Botanical Gardens, and the Pigeon Island National Park, home to an old British military base.

6 Fri 18 Jan 2013 Bridgetown, Barbados 8.00am 5.00pm
South Caribbean Cruise The city of Bridgetown is the capital and largest city of the island country of Barbados, a major tourist destination in the West Indies. The city has numerous attractions, landmarks, monuments, museums, and art galleries of an international standard. It is also a starting point for visiting many other popular cities on the island. This historic city and its nearby Garrison are recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so be sure to take a virtual tour to explore the area. While tourists devote at least a portion of their time in Bridgetown to see the monuments and museums, duty free sales also attract a great deal of attention.

With a host of fascinating things to be done, one suggestion would be to take a trip to the Tyrol Cot Heritage Village. It is rather like stepping back in time, as the Barbados of old is recreated here, offering visitors the chance to learn about its agricultural past and slave days. Explore the delightful beaches, discover the oldest synagogue in the western hemisphere, and visit the Barbados Garrison, a former 17th century British military base. The Public Buildings or Parliament, which stand directly north of Heroes Square, are home to the third oldest continuous parliament in the British Commonwealth.

Bridgetown is typical of all good Caribbean islands and resorts, boasting a fine selection of tropical white sandy beaches - many with superb coral reefs and even submerged shipwrecks - affording excellent snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities. Many will be sure to taste some of the famous local rum, while some may take an electric tram to journey through a series of underground caverns. There is truly something for everybody. Indeed, at one point in the city's early history, Bridgetown was the most important city of all British possessions in the New World due to its easterly location in the Caribbean region.
