Join the Alexander von Humboldt for 13 days voyage in the Caribbean. Start in Trinidad and sail via the Caribbean Sea to Willemstad, Curacao, where you can do a lot of different things. The island has several beaches, diving possibilities and snorkelspots. On board you participate in the daily working of the ship alongside professional seamen, standing lookout, manning the helm, helping in the galley, hoisting sail and voluntarily have the chance to climb the rigging/mast. Language on board German and English. Open to all ages, minimum age 14 years.
Port of Spain is the capital city of a Caribbean state Trinidad and Tobago, dating back to 1560. To learn about that long history, visit the National Museum and Art Gallery or climb up to Fort King George. Join the locals in relaxing in the Queen's Park Savannah, where many activities take place daily. If you want to get out of the city, visit the Maracas Falls for a breath of fresh, if wet, air.
Willemstad is the capital of Curaçao, a Caribbean island and a constituent country of the Netherlands. Famous for its beaches and clear-blue sea, Curaçao is a great place to enjoy watersports, from snorkelling, through kitesurfing to sailing, but the Kura Hulanda Museum is also a must-see with its rich collection of historical artifacts. If you're the adventurous type, visit the Hato Caves as well.
