Bridgetown (BB) - Marigot (MF)

10 January - 24 January 2019

No January Blues! Exploring the Windward Islands. What better way to start the New Year than island hopping in the Caribbean on a beautiful Ship?

The detailed itinerary subject to change depending on the wind and weather conditions. Open to Windseekers of all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Bridgetown is the capital city of Barbados, an island nation eastern Caribbean. It's the only city on the island, and thus is the hub for tourism - the historic old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site is a place to wander around, and learn about the island's colonial history. Attractions are plentiful - after watching a game of cricket and trying some flying fish for lunch, relax with a glass of locally-distilled rum and prepare for your next voyage.

Marigot is the capital of the French part of St. Maarten. It's a typical Caribbean town, complete with colorful houses, small streets and a relaxed atmosphere. The climate will help you adjust to the pace of life on the island, but if you want to do more than sip piña coladas, you'll find plenty to do. Visit the old fort St. Louis, overlooking Marigot bay, the French Quarter (Orleans), and Paradise Peak. But Marigot’s main draw is to just be there and enjoy one beautiful day after the other.
