Central America Caribbean Cruise

Pearls of the Caribbean Cruise

Explore enchanting islands on this luxury Caribbean cruise aboard 184-guest Le Champlain. On this 8- or 9-day cruise, combine relaxing on long white-sand beaches with cultural experiences that showcase the easy Creole way of life. From Fort-de-France, the capital of Martinique, Le Champlain sets sail to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and the whale-hunting island of Bequia, with its wild and unspoiled coastline and lively atmosphere of Port Elizabeth, the island’s main town.

After a call at Grenada, the ship will anchor in the Tobago Cays National Park. This rosary of islands bound together by the most beautiful coral reef in the West Indies, will reveal its incredible underwater wildlife and its secret coves. Then island hop gently towards Saint Lucia and its two majestic rocky peaks soaring straight from the sea, a unique location listed as an UNESCO World Heritage site. Finally disembark back in Fort-de-France. Make sure to visit one of its renowned rum distilleries! 

An alternative 8-day Pearls of the Caribbean itinerary operates a similar route but does not visit Barbados. The 9-day Jewels of the Caribbean cruise also operates round-trip from Fort-de-France, Martinique, but only cruises north, visiting the heart of the West Indies and British Virgin Islands, including Saint Kitts, Barbuda, Saint Martin, Virgin Gorda and more.

An experienced dive instructor is on board for the entire cruise, ensuring safe swimming and scuba diving opportunities. Additionally, Le Champlain features 100% private balconies or terraces, innovative equipment, elegantly designed guest accommodations and welcoming lounge areas that open to the outside. A variety of onboard activities engage guests while the ship cruises, including the Blue Eye underwater lounge–a multi-sensory space in the ship’s hull featuring hydrophones, expansive underwater views and other amenities that create the feeling of being underwater beside the marine life that the ship is sailing past.
