- St. Martin Island and Beach Tour
- St. Kitts Batik and Beach

St. Thomas - ST. THOMAS HIGHLIGHTS WITH MAGEN'S BAY
Our driver/tour guide will take you to various lookout sites, including Raphune Hill and Beacons Point, which provides a spectacular view of St. Thomas. The next stop will be Skyline Drive, overlooking the downtown area and Charlotte Amalie Harbor. Upon leaving Skyline Drive, we'll travel to the Botanical Gardens at St. Peter Great House. Next, on to Magens Bay Beach, rated as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world by National Geographic. Enjoy two hours of peaceful serenity by swimming, relaxing, or walking along the shore. Upon leaving the beach, you'll be dropped off in downtown Charlotte Amalie to enjoy shopping at your own leisure or you may choose to go back to the ship. 4.75 hours

St. Martin - ST. MARTIN ISLAND AND BEACH TOUR
Here's a great way to see a very nice island. Your driver will take you up to the International Looking-Out Point as you move from the Dutch side of the island to the French side. A tour through the interior is truly the only way for anyone to see and understand the culture and composition of the Caribbean. The two sides of St. Martin are quite distinct. The French side is developed on a smaller scale and really transmits the French influence in language, food, and culture. The Dutch side is more commercial and holds the large resorts, casinos, and lots of fast food. St. Martin is the smallest island to be shared by two countries and the border crossings are inconspicuous. A stop in the French capital city of Marigot will provide you with time to stroll, shop, and sample the French pastries. Then you will head to the famous Orient Beach, where you will have time to enjoy the sun, sand, and to relax in comfort. Your driver will arrange a pick up time for your return transfer to the ship.

St. Kitts - BATIK AND BEACH
All smiles and happiness upon your arrival, you will be scooped up and shown the main city of Basseterre after boarding your transportation. This town has a lot of character and it also has lots of characters! I am sure you will spot Elvis, or at least his van, as you drive around the small but bustling town. Moving along to the outer road, your driver will have just a little time to fill you in on some history before you turn uphill for a beautiful scenic view. You have arrived at historic Romney Manor, once a sugar cane planation. Romney Manor was owned by Sam Jefferson II, a great-great-great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson. You have also arrived at Caribelle Batik, which is both a shop and a part of St. Kitts culture. Batik is created using an ancient Indonesian method that uses wax to resist dye on parts of the fabric and then designs (often consisting of lines and dots) are applied with that method by using a canting tool or stamp. Caribelle Batik is famous for its unique batik designs that combine flourishing strokes and elements of nature. While at Caribelle Batik you’ll be able to learn more about the methods used to create batik as there will be artisans demonstrating the technique and creating products onsite while explaining the process. This is a must-see shopping stop and whatever you buy here will likely be the best and most unique of any souvenir you see on your vacation. Even if you decide not to purchase, the memories of these creative folks will remain with you. At this stop you can also enjoy the Botanical Gardens and the spectacular view of Nevis. Your driver will gather you and continue your drive to one of St. Kitts popular beaches. Here expect to spend 3 hours of heaven. There are full facilities at the beach so you will find food, drinks, chairs, gear, whatever you wish to eat or rent is at your fingertips. This combination of a little culture, some rainforest, history, gardens and fun will fill your day.


Amber Cove - BEACH ESCAPE IN PUERTO PLATA WITH CITY HIGHLIGHTS
After your departure from the cruise pier, your informative driver will introduce you to the bustling city of Puerto Plata. Drawn to its natural port, Puerto Plata was discovered by Christopher Columbus in the late 1490's. Your guide will fill you in on many more interesting details about this city, including photo stops at several famous and historic locations. Now it's on to the beach...white sand, gentle breezes, brilliant shades of turquoise water! Upon you arrival, you will be greeted with a complimentary "specialty of the house" beverage and shown to your complimentary lounger. It's time to spend the next couple hours doing whatever you desire, swimming, frolicking in the surf, sunbathing, strolling along the beach or maybe even taking a nap. This is the perfect day in a tropical paradise.

Grand Turk - BEAUTIFUL BEACH DAY
This small, intimate resort is the only property on Grand Turk that is able to deliver a quiet and calming experience. We discovered this property after scouring the island and therefore developed this opportunity which allows you time to enjoy this resort as if you were overnight guests. Just arrive at your own pace by taxi, not included, and check-in. From that moment till you leave, the time table is yours to determine for the day. Select a beach chair, included in the cost, at the edge of the blue water. Or find some shade in the multiple palm-lined quiet corners where you can relax with a rum punch or chill out in a hammock. The service is excellent and the best of Grand Turk is before you - the aqua water framed by white sand. If you're hungry, you've come to the right place! Pick and choose what you like from our sampler lunch of conch, fish, lobster, chicken, and yummy side dishes (depending on availability). Plenty of sides round out the plate. Additional beverages are available for purchase from the bar. If you wish you can opt for more, snorkeling (gear is additional $20 per person), kayaks ($20 for 2 hours), as well as other activities available for rental onsite. To keep the calm demeanor of this property we suggest you book early as there is a limited number of spaces available each day.


Nassau - SAIL AND SNORKEL ADVENTURE ON A CATAMARAN
Get ready for the ride of a lifetime aboard a state-of-the-art custom built catamaran! This luxurious cat will take you through crystal-clear Caribbean waters to one of Nassau's most beautiful coral reefs. Here, you'll embark on an underwater adventure as you snorkel among an array of exotic marine wildlife. Visual stimulation is at its peak as you glide over Nassau's jewel-like seas. The catamarans make for a supremely comfortable ride, with spacious decks, cushioned seating, and private bathrooms. There's plenty of room to spread out and relax, or mingle among other guests, if you choose. You can expect to spend about one hour in the water. On your return, soak up those Bahaman rays of sunshine as you enjoy a rum punch, bottled water, or fruit punch. A full premium cash bar is also available on board.

Eat Your Way Through Historic St. Thomas
As you stroll the main and side streets of Charlotte Amalie, your local guide will explain the history of this interesting island. Exploration, plantations, slaves, pirates, trading...hang on, it's going to be a bumpy ride! As is often the case, the culture informs the food and we'll experience it all at locally owned establishments.

Quiche is quite popular in many areas of the world, but St. Thomas gives it its own spin with the addition of mild-tasting codfish, along with a tasty side salad. A great twist on a classic dish.

Our next sample is Callaloo, a soup with its origins in West Africa. Traditionally served at Christmas and New Years, this dish is too tasty to keep under wraps. A savory combination of fish, pork or turkey, veggies and spices, it will be served alongside fungi (foon jee). Not to be confused with a fungus, this local specialty consists of cornmeal, salt and water, sometimes with okra added. Try it, you'll like it! At the same location, we'll taste that perennial Caribbean favorite...fresh, crispy conch fritters.

Mouth-watering meat pies have proven to be very popular here. We'll sample chicken, beef or fish. No matter which you taste, it is sure to be a hit.

When is a bakery more than just a bakery? When it has a dual purpose. Alongside moist coconut rum cake and other tasty baked treats, this non-profit organization serves up mentoring, job skills, education and job placement to the island's at-risk youth. Think of it as supporting their mission with every delicious bite.

A trip to the islands would not be complete without a signature drink, in this case, the Bushwacker. This frosty, creamy concoction of vodka, rum, Irish cream, Amaretto, Kahlua and coconut might just be the most delicious beverage you've ever tasted. Take note of the location, you'll be back after the tour for another.

Half Day Sail With Ryan
This is the real deal...a beautiful sailboat with spacious decks, padded cushions and a shaded cockpit. Find yourself a comfy spot as your experienced, friendly captain and first mate head out into the sparkling waters of the Caribbean. You'll find unparalleled views of the coastline and secluded cays that dot the seascape en route to St. John.

With exceptional snorkeling all around, it's time to don your gear and discover the underwater world that awaits. If you're new to snorkeling, your helpful crew will be happy to provide instruction. The snorkel stop will be based on your preference and level of experience, but rest assured no matter the location, you'll find the warm, clear waters teeming with dazzling coral, brightly colored fish, stingrays and turtles.

After snorkeling, there will be delicious snacks waiting for you on board. Enjoy a cold soft drink, fruit or rum punch and relax.

As you make your way back to St. Thomas, see what it feels like to be a real sailor and help your captain hoist the sails. Feel the wind as it fills the canvas, propelling the boat through the water. This is why you came to the Caribbean!
