A Floribbean getaway that offers relaxation aficionados the best of Florida and the Caribbean. The tour begins with an express journey south to Florida, America’s beach-flopping capital. Spend four nights (and ring in the New Year!) in either Daytona Beach or St. Pete Beach before heading to port. There, guests have the special privilege of boarding the glamorous MSC Divina. Casting anchor, the Eastern Caribbean opens its shutters to a 12-day smorgasbord of sunshine, seafood, and rustling coconut palms.

Take in the cobblestone charm of historic Old San Juan, the plantation houses of Barbados, and the jelly bean cottages of St. John’s. Flake on Antigua’s Half Moon Bay Beach – one of the Caribbean’s best – and explore nature along the secluded pink sands of Barbuda Lagoon’s 17 Mile Beach. Breathe in the nutmeg hanging hot in the air of the “spice island,” Grenada and discover the steep, lush hillsides of Tortola and St. Kitts and Nevis.

Revel in the hustle and grit that is Nassau before boarding the MSC Divina one last time for your final cruise port of Miami. From there, the DeNure motorcoach begins the express ride home.

Whether you want to doze in a hammock under a banana tree, stroll along beaches and pastel-fronted Caribbean streets, or shop ‘til you drop, this one serves up “Floribbean” on a tropical 18-day platter.

Day 9: San Juan, Puerto Rico

A top the Headland overlooking the city of San Juan stands the ramparts of El Morro – which staved off European aggressors for 500 years. Until the late nineteenth century the city wall know as La Muralla encircled all of Old San Juan with 3900 metres of sandstone, culminating in the fortress of El Morro. The old town with its narrow streets distinctively cobbled with smooth, iridescent bricks known as adoquines, originally used as ballast in ships, and feature buildings with bright pastel facades and wrought-iron balconies abloom with plants and flowers, the area is considered one of the best-kept troves of Spanish colonial architecture and has become a World Heritage Site.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 10: St. John’s, Antigua & Barbuda

The island of Antigua, a colony of the British crown for over 300 years, has retained the taste for tropical life introduced by her majesty’s subjects. Arriving to Antigua on an MSC cruise ship and disembarking in the English harbour, along the southern coast of the island, gives you access to the historical centre of the island.

In Barbuda, about 20 marine miles north of Antigua, you can admire the largest nesting colony of marine birds in the area and behind it the long, 11 Miles Beach. The old history of the Lesser Antilles also gives us a trace of the pre-Colombian populations like the Arawak, the native population of these archipelagos; some artefacts can be admired at the Old Court House in Saint John, while Amerindian petroglyphs are visible in the Indian Cave in Barbuda.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 11: Bridgetown, Barbados

For more than three centuries Barbados was a British colony, it still retains something of a British feel: the place names, the cricket, horse-racing and polo. Among the more traditional attractions of a travel to Barbados are the island’s evocative plantation houses, colourful botanical gardens, and proud military forts and signal stations. The capital Bridgetown makes for a lively place to visit. Then there are the beaches, from the popular Accra Beach and Mullins Bay to tiny but superb patches of palm-fringed sand like Bottom Bay in the southeast are famous with transparent waters, white sand and lots of sea life.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 12: Saint George, Grenada

As your cruise approaches Grenada, the first thing you notice are the green hills of the hinterland. Here you find vast farms of cinnamon, cloves, ginger and most prominant nutmeg making it know as the “island of spices”.

If you’re looking for beaches, you don’t have to go too far from the capital, Saint George; here, in the south-western part of the island you find the most stunning locations, like the Grand Anse Beach, considered by many to be one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. The island has many other beaches thath stretches along the coasts of the Lance aux Épines peninsula or the white sands of the coast of Morne Rouge Bay, at the southern end of the island.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 13: Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis

The city of Basseterre has two cathedrals, St. George’s Anglican Church and the Catholic Cathedral of Immaculate Conception in East Square Street. They are at the top of the list of places to see. On South Square Street, you can visit a Georgian House, one of the better-preserved examples of local 18th century architecture.

Charlestown, is the capital of Basseterre’s sister island Nevis. Here, the churches of St. Paul and St. Thomas are a must-see. On Nevis, try an excursion to the Nisbet Plantation, a historic manor now a hotel with a splendid beach and dwarf palms.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 14: Road Town, British Virgin Islands

The capital of the British Virgin Islands, Road Town is situated in the largest bay of Tortola, the largest of the islands. One of Tortola’s most charming beaches, Sugar Cane Bay is named for the large sugar cane plantation located behind it. Bathing in these waters and laying on the crystalline sand you can watch sea birds dive into the sea to feed.

Stop by the Callwood Rum Distillery, which gives you the opportunity to explore the original structure of a sugar cane distillery and a chance for some rum tasting. The original heater at the distillery is still functional and the rum being produced is stored in old barrels. The Old Guard House, which is still intact, has been transformed into an art gallery and a souvenir shop.

Meals: B, L, D
