Day 1 - Embark Bridgetown, Barbados

Arrive independently to Barbados, then embark between 8 and 10pm, depending on your departure. Bridgetown, Barbados' historic center, with its colonial architecture surrounding Trafalgar Square, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A gentle, green hilly countryside and endless fields of sugar cane characterize the island's landscape. Old colonial houses are reminders of the high life of the plantation owners, while innumerable colorful chattel houses are evidence of their workers' "moveable property." Here, the sweeping coastline is a picture postcard of fine sandy beaches and turquoise sea surrounded by colorful coral reefs.

Day 2 - At Sea

Sail west toward Bequia, enjoying the waters of the Caribbean from your luxury barque.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 3 - Port Elizabeth, Bequia

In the small town of Port Elizabeth on Bequia find sailors meeting for a catch up on the local beach or outside the town’s small bars. The small archipelago of the Tobago Cays offers protected anchorages in its lagoons. Beach heaven awaits you here, as well as a visit to a turtle sanctuary.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 4 - St. George's, Grenada

Today's island trip has a "rum and nutmeg" theme. Grenada is known as the island of spice, and there is a reason why nutmeg is immortalized on this country’s national flag. Since colonial times, nutmeg – along with cloves, cinnamon and ginger – has been one of the island’s most important exports. If the aromatic fragrance of the tropics were to have a name, it would have to be “Grenada.” Around St. George's horseshoe-shaped bay, find beautiful beaches, spice plantations, dense rainforests, waterfalls and a volcano that has long been extinct.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 5 - Chatham Bay, Union Island

A unique feature of the Tobago Cays is its unspoiled coral reef, known as the “Horseshoe Reef” due to its shape. It keeps the Atlantic swells at bay and is the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 6 - Soufrière, St. Lucia

Today's excursion is to St. Lucia's botanical gardens and volcanic sulphur springs. The Pitons of St Lucia are world famous and magnificently beautiful, but perhaps even more stunning is the exclusive view you will have of this incredible natural beauty from the Sea Cloud’s anchorage.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 7 - Cabrits, Dominica

Dominica is one of the wildest and most primal of the Lesser Antilles, boasting some of the region's highest mountains. The heart of the island is covered in dense virgin forest, with rivers plunging into the depths and small creeks winding their way through the jungle. Two extinct volcanoes are at the center of the Cabrits National Park, and recaptured by nature, the former strategically important Fort Stanley appears like a picturesque backdrop in the heart of the jungle. Walk and explore in the national park or take a Creole cookery lesson.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 8 - Terre-de-Haut, Îles des Saintes

The ÎIes des Saintes give such a welcoming first impression, though the historical Fort Napoléon that towers over the main island is a reminder of less peaceful times (the disputed archipelago finally became French in 1816). In the charming main town of Terre-de-Haut, the waterside promenade is perfect for taking a stroll. Boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants invite you to browse and spend some time here. The "savoir vivre" takes place against a backdrop lit up in all the pastel shades of the Caribbean. Fort Napoleon is set high above the bay, and your climb up to it is rewarded by a spectacular panoramic view. On the other side of the island, the Plage de Pompierre invites you to enjoy a dip in the sea and sunbathe on the beach.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 9 - Gustavia, St Barthélemy (St Barths)

St Barthélemy, affectionately known as St Barths by most, had already had many "owners" before the Lesser Antilles were acquired by France in 1877. When the first estate was acquired by the banker David Rockefeller in 1957, the island's future was finally sealed. It became a refuge for the international jet set and an elegant holiday paradise for many Hollywood stars. For over 40 years, St Barths has cultivated a luxurious lifestyle with a Caribbean laissez-faire approach. You can stroll through the charming main town of Gustavia, whose beautifully restored houses and colonial facades look out over the sea with its elegant super-yachts, browse in the shops for precious items or enjoy a sundowner in the picturesque harbor surrounded by clusters of high-class bars and restaurants.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 10 - Road Bay, Anguilla

As the most northerly of the Leeward Islands, Anguilla is slightly off the usual tourist trail – and that is exactly what makes it so special. You will be carried away from the stresses and strains of daily life. This small island is host to more than 30 superb beaches protected by coral reefs. You can enjoy the turquoise blue sea and white sandy beaches of Road Bay as you swim against a backdrop of palm trees.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 11 - Disembark St John's, Antigua

Disembark at 8am in St John's, Antigua, and return home individually. St John's is the capital of Antigua, a small island in the Antilles and a former British colony. From Shirley Heights in the south you have a fantastic view over the English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard, an old restored shipyard named after the Admiral. Explorations on your own here could include a visit to Betty's Hope, a restored sugar mill where "white gold" would have been processed during the island's bitter past. Now sweet black pineapples grow in the gentle rolling landscape around Boggy Peak. The coast is lined with bays and lagoons, dazzling white palm-filled beaches - one for every day of the year - and an almost unbroken coral reef.
