    View of Amber Cove, Dominican Republic

    Amber Cove, located near Puerto Plata (aka Silver Port), on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, is a new $85 million port purposely developed for cruise passengers by Carnival Corp. It opened in mid 2015, and it will be the first time since the 1980s that a cruise ship has stopped at what is known as the Amber Coast, so called for its abundance of the translucent, burnt-orange stone. Cruise guests experience the natural beauty and wonder what makes the Dominican Republic such an attractive tourist destination. Dozens of shore excursions are available.

    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.

    5 Friday, December 24, 2021 St Martin (Philipsburg), Guadeloupe 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of St Martin (Philipsburg), Guadeloupe

    The island is shared in two parts as: the northern part Saint-Martin (a French overseas collectivity) and southern part Sint Maarten (of the Kingdom of the Netherlands): hence its name St-Martin / St Maarten. It lies in the NE Caribbean, located 300 km E of Puerto Rico. This tiny island is an extremely popular holiday and duty-free shopping destination famous for its variety of 37 palm-treed beaches that include salt-water ponds. For 13 weeks in late 2017 the island was off limits to cruise ships, until facilities were rebuilt following the island’s destruction wrought by Hurricane Irma.

    6 Saturday, December 25, 2021 Soufrière, Saint Lucia
    View of Soufrière, Saint Lucia

    Soufrière is a town on the SW coast of the British colonial island of Saint Lucia, in the West Indies. Soufrière's backdrop of the Pitons – a World Heritage Site comprising two giant volcanic plugs, the sea and inland rainforest provide a picture-perfect setting for a visit to this laid-back and relatively undeveloped town. Considering that its name is French for "sulfur," it should be no surprise to discover the wealth of hot springs and mineral baths. Added to this are the nearby black sand beaches of Anse Chastanet to the north and Malgretout to the south. Read more about Soufrière, Saint Lucia

    6 Saturday, December 25, 2021 Castries, Saint Lucia 11:00 AM 10:00 PM
    View of Castries, Saint Lucia

    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. Read more about Castries, Saint Lucia

    7 Sunday, December 26, 2021 St George's, Grenada 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of St George's, Grenada

    St. George's is the capital of Grenada, British West Indies. The city surrounds a horseshoe-shaped harbour, and is an attractive colonial-era town with a distinctly Mediterranean feel that appears to spill down the hill side. When a ship arrives at the new docks, the town explodes into a frenzy of activity, market stalls open up on shore, restaurants and bars fill up, and street vendors as well as local guides come out in force.

    8 Monday, December 27, 2021 Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago

    Located on the western tip of the island of Trinidad, between the rainforests and mountains of the Northern Range and the Gulf of Paria, Port of Spain is the country’s cultural, commercial and governmental centre. It is a busy and vibrant city with the tall buildings, neon lights and crowded streets, as well as a multicultural Caribbean character and a home-grown calypso soundtrack. Maracas Bay is a beach that fulfils the fantasy of the ideal Caribbean beach, but is just as famous for the scenic rainforest drive that must be made to reach it. While there, many take a challenging walk to the spectacular Maracas Falls. Read more about Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
