Your Itinerary

Day 1 – 2

Your journey will begin with a one night pre cruise stay at Carlisle Bay, Antigua. This beautiful luxury resort is set on a pristine white sand beach which meets sparkling turquoise waters with an emerald green rain forest as its backdrop. Visit the resort’s Water Sports Centre, find your zen with a yoga class, or simply relax on the beach. Your seven night cruise onboard the Emerald Sakara will begin on day two.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 3

The first stop on this cruising journey will be Saint-Pierre, a town on the island of Martinique. This town was almost wiped off the map during an eruption of the Mount Pelée volcano in 1902 but in more recent years it has been named as the 101st ‘City of Art and History’. Spend your time in Saint-Pierre exploring the few remnants of Matinique’s colonial history: the old theatre, the ruins of the island’s fort and the dungeon of Cyparis.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 4

The next stop is Bequia Island, the second largest in the Grenadines Island chain. Bequia is one of the more off the beaten track islands in the Grenadine islands built along a picturesque bay with forested hills behind. Wander along the Belmont Walkway to the Gingerbread for delicious homemade nutmeg ice cream and then continue along to the beautiful pristine Princess Margaret Beach. Be sure not to miss the exceptional craftsmanship at the Sargeant Brothers Model Boat Shop.

Day 5

Today your cruise will dock at Tobago Cays, an archipelago located in the Southern Grenadines, famous for its five small uninhabited islands: Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Baradal, Petit Tobac and Jamesby. A must visit when in Tobago Cays is the Tobago Cays Marine Park, a national park and wildlife reserve. This park is renowned for its massive 1,400 acre lagoon, an idyllic area to enjoy sand-bottomed and crystal-clear waters full of vibrant fish and turtles.

Day 6

The next stop on this incredible cruising journey is Mayreau Island, the smallest of the Grenadines’ uninhabited islands with a surface area of only 1.5 square miles. This island has a population of just 250 people who live in the quant village on the island’s highest hill, Station Hill. Be sure to visit the charming little church and community centre at the top of the hill which provide incredible views over the islands.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 7

Today your cruise will dock at Soufrière, a town on the West Coast of Saint Lucia. This town was originally the capital of Saint Lucia and has kept the spirit of the French colonialists who first settled there but were later followed by the British. Soufrière is located in the Qualibou Depression, the crater of a dormant volcano. Be sure to visit the botanical gardens, waterfalls, hotel springs and geothermal fields. Another must visit is the Glittering Beach, where you can relax under the Caribbean warm sun on your lounger or take a refreshing dip in the azure waters.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 8

The next stop is Terre-de-Haut, the largest of the eight small islands that make up Les Saintes. This island will feel as though you have been transported to the South of France with the addition of just a few more palm trees and white-sand beaches. Be sure to try the island’s signature dish, le tourment d’amour, a small tart with coconut jam covered in sponge cake.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 9 – 12

Your cruise will end in St. John’s Antigua on day nine where you will then transfer to the Blue Waters Resort & Spa for the next three nights. Spend your day experiencing all that St. Johns has to offer. Discover the beautiful beaches hidden among the numerous cliffs and bays, snorkel with gentle stingrays, zip-line in the treetops through the Antiguan rain forest, or take a breath taking catamaran trip. There are also a variety of unique shops where shoppers will find Caribbean fashions and local crafts.
