Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive in Barbados and Transfer to your home for the next 10 days onboard the Regent Seven Seas Navigator

Bridgetown

The island of Barbados is rimmed with mile after mile of pristine beaches. The eastern edge, rugged and hilly, lies on the Atlantic Ocean. The west coast, washed by the calmer leeward sea has most of the resort hotels. It is here that you will find the capital, Bridgetown, and older colonial settlements. Tour the meticulously restored 17th-century Sunbury Plantation House or admire the spectacular views from Gun Hill Signal Station. Adventures abound at sea by catamaran or Atlantis submersible and on land by an off-road island safari. Not to miss delicacies include the sweet and tender flying fish, washed down with a glass of Barbados’ famous Mount Gay rum.

Day 2 – Port Of Spain Trinidad & Tobago

Discover the colourful Port of Spain with its rich multicultural heritage, skyscrapers, lush gardens, and early 20th Century mansions. Explore The Savannah, a vast 260-acre park and its orchid house. Indulge in a chilled fresh coconut from one of the park’s vendors. Visit the National Museum and Art Gallery, The Red House, and The Magnificent Seven, a row of beautifully restored mansions dating from the Colonial era. Admire the clock tower in the Queen’s Royal College. Frederick St. offers fabulous restaurants, galleries, and world-class shopping. Look for local artwork, fine clothing, and other unique souvenirs. Enjoy fresh seafood, roti, or callaloo while moving to the rhythm of Calypso music in this dynamic setting.

Day 3 – St. George’s Grenada

Whether you enjoy climbing waterfalls or simply relaxing on sun-kissed beaches, you will find that the capital of Grenada has something for everyone. From the moment you arrive, you will not only be charmed by a colorful mix of colonial architecture set on lush vegetation, but also be enchanted by the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg. Be sure to visit one of the many spice estates or shop for exotic spices in Market Square.

Day 4 – Kingstown, St. Vincent & the Grenadines

Known as the “City of Arches” because of the many volcanic stone archways throughout the downtown area, Kingstown was first settled by the French. In the following decades, the island was ceded to the British. Stroll along Bay Street and duck into one of its many shops, but for truly authentic island goods, visit the outdoor waterfront market and the large produce market.

Day 5 – Roseau, Dominica

Roseau, a small town with plenty of colonial charm, offers the colorful New Market, where you can stop for a refreshing coconut drink. Dominica’s real beauty lies in its unspoiled natural landscape – the dense rain forests, lush foliage, natural springs and rivers and tall, smoldering peaks. Dominica is home to one of the Caribbean’s great natural wonders-the scenic Valley of Desolation, where in a verdant tropical gorge, white mists from bubbling hot springs swirl in the air.

Day 6 – Gustavia, St. Barts

St. Barts is where Riviera chic meets Caribbean cool. Day-trippers come from nearby islands for duty-free shopping, excellent dining, and to lounge on the soft, white sands in a secluded palm-fringed cove. Tour Fort Gustav and Fort Carl, historic reminders of Sweden’s short-lived Caribbean possession. Excursions abound, inviting guests to snorkel, sail over the clear blue waters on a catamaran, or horseback ride through shaded jungle trails.

Day 7 – St. John’s, Antigua

Touting 365 beaches, most protected by coral reefs; a ring of forts; and quaint Colonial architecture, Antigua, and particularly St. John’s, is a classic example of the British Caribbean. Sites to see include St. John’s Cathedral, destroyed by earthquakes and rebuilt on the same spot at least three times, the last time in 1845; and the Museum of Antigua & Barbuda, which, in addition to island history, also offers a fascinating exhibition of semiprecious stones. For a stroll in nature, make your way to Nelson’s Dockyard National Park, or the nature trail to Shirley Heights. St. John’s offers several hot spots for nightlife and live music. And be sure to stop at a local restaurant to taste the buttery “flying fish,” unique to this part of the Caribbean.

Day 8 – Pointe-A-Pitre, Guadeloupe

Pointe-à-Pitre lies on Grande-Terre and is the largest city of Guadeloupe. Whether visiting the spectacular waterfalls in the jungle of Basse-Terre, taking a scenic hike to the top of La Grande Soufrière volcano, or sampling local rum on a distillery tour, you will find a diverse array of activities to enjoy. Pointe-à-Pitre offers luxury items imported from France as well as handicrafts at open-air markets throughout the city.

Day 9 – Fort-De-France, Martinique

You will be cheering Vive la France during your time in Fort-de-France. The capital of Martinique boasts beautiful French architecture, such as the Cathédral St-Louis, several French-built forts, and pristine beaches that rival those of the Riviera. All roads lead to La Savane, a serene central park overseen by a statue of Empress Josephine. Savor the favored French-Antillean dish of Filet of John Dory with yellow bananas and anise.

Day 10 – Castries, St. Lucia

Castries is the capital, commercial center, and main cruise port of St Lucia. Founded by the French in about 1768, it changed hands in the early 1800s, when the British made the town a major naval port and built fortifications on Morne Fortune, overlooking the harbor. Today, the port offers something for everyone. Bargain hunters can head over to the duty-free shops at Pointe Seraphine; Castries Waterworks Forest Reserve allows visitors a rare glimpse of rain forest flora and fauna; and, for those looking for a fun day trip, a visit to the Grand Pitons or a hike up to Fort Charlotte on Morne Fortune offers beautiful vistas and historical perspective.

Day 11 – Bridgetown, Barbados

We bid farewell to our beautiful Seven Seas Navigator as we disembark this morning to either transfer to the airport for flights home or why not add a couple of extra days in Barbadian Paradise?
