FRENCH CARIBBEAN • NOVEMBER 7th – 17th, 2008
A 5-minute movie about this cruise
An enticing mix of pink and blue buildings, yachts, rum cocktails and pirate lore. Play on a soft-sand beach or sail away to islands of buccaneer legend. Sample shore excursions: The North Shore & Pusser’s Landing; Wreck of the Rhone Two-tank Certified Dive; Virgin Gorda & The Baths; Swim with the Dolphins.
Edenic green jungles, dazzling beaches, a drive-in volcano: This lush isle has it all, plus the spellbinding twin peaks — the Pitons.ĘSample shore excursions: St Lucian Heritage; Catamaran to Fond Doux Estate; Horseback Riding Adventure.
Some say this island is more British than Britain. Here cricket is the national sport, afternoon tea goes without saying and motorists hug left. The friendly island spirit, local rum and fried flying fish are strictly Bajan! Sample shore excursion: Natural Wonders of Barbados; Atlantic Odyssey Submarine; Green Monkey Eco-tour.
Stunning volcanic history (in 1902 Mont Pelee blew open with catastrophic force), rum distilleries and blooms in every tropical hue await on this verdant "Island of Flowers." Sample shore excursions: 4x4 Jeep; Fort-de-France Historic Walking Tour; Martinique by Land & Sea; Snorkel Martninique.
An island under two flags. On the Dutch side: chocolates, cheeses and casinos. On the French side: bistros, boulangeries and boutiques. Sample shore excursions: Golden Eagle Catamaran Sail to Tintamar Island; Hidden Forest Adventure Hike & French Marigot; America’s Cup Regatta; Around the Island Art Tour; Harley in Paradise.
Holland America Line’s pristine private island offers everything you need for a day of play in paradise: a two-mile crescent of perfect beach; an interior lagoon; private beachside cabanas with butler service, showers and misters; and all manner of watersports and activities, including a children’s aqua park and a buoyed personal watercraft course. Sample shore excursions: Horseback Riding by Land and Sea; Deep-sea or Flats Fishing; Stingray Adventure; AquaTrax Watercraft Adventure.
