Morgenster:
Martinique (MQ) - Guadeloupe (GP)

29 December 2023 - 04 January 2024

Island hopping and celebrating the new year on blue water. Your journey begins in Martinique, called The Island of Flowers. Raise the sails and set course for Dominica, an island paradise and a well-known eco-tourism destination. Stretch your sea legs hiking in a lush rainforest before sailing northwards to Guadeloupe – a group of larger and smaller islands, some of them uninhabited, but home to thousands of iguanas. It is one of the more exceptional destinations on your possible itinerary. Possible, because on this journey, you choose our destinations together with other trainees and crew. There are so many highlights here, although it’s sadly impossible to visit them all. The Ship and crew are at your service and will do their utmost to make this journey a dream come true for everyone!
Open to all Windseekers over 18 years old (please note that this is not a youth voyage and we expect a big variety of ages on board). This booking is covered by VZR Garant (instead of Windseeker’s usual STO Garant). Meals on board are vegetarian, please indicate on the booking form if you would like to have the occasional fish or meat dish on the menu.

Enjoy the unique culture of the island with its Creole and French influences and the multicultural cuisine. Visit the Paul Gauguin Interpretation Centre, dedicated to the artist's brief but fruitful stay on the island. Participate in watersports or take a hike through the tropical forest.

Guadeloupe an insular region of France in the Caribbean. It's a small archipelago of tropical islands which offer something for everyone. If you like to be active then climbing the La Soufriere volcano is for you, while those who prefer to relax can choose one of the beautiful beaches.
