Travel to Fort Lauderdale for a Caribbean cast-off. First stop, St. Maarten! Lush and mountainous, St. Maarten’s cultural mix creates a vibrant fusion of food flavours. Remote St. Lucia has twin volcanic spires and bright buildings that drum calypso beats over silver sand beaches.

Barbados has pink sand, old colonial buildings, and cultural island rhythms. Mont Pelée is a rainforest backdrop for Martinique’s cosmopolitan bustle, ornate buildings, and beach huts that serve the catch of the day. St. Kitts and Nevis are sister islands where dense forests tumble down mountainsides to sun-soaked beaches.

St. Thomas is happy hour! Countless eateries and pubs compliment the number of things to do on this island. Visit Black Beard’s Castle (c.1679) for panoramic views of quiet bays and beaches.

After a day at sea, we arrive at Half Moon Cay, Bahamas, a private island with brightly painted cabanas, trails teaming with birds, and thatch-roofed bars on impossibly white postcard-perfect beaches. Finish off with a dream week in Daytona before DeNureTours’ motorcoach takes us on our overnight coach journey home!

 

A holiday that offers the best of both worlds

If cruising to seven gorgeous Caribbean Islands aboard a luxury ship isn’t enough to relax your shoulders, our final stay in Daytona Beach, Florida provides seven more spoiled days to decompress.

Eleven dining venues, and dozens of activities and entertainment, such as B.B. King’s Blues Club, make the 2,650-guest Koningsdam the first in her class.

Nautilus Inn

Daytona’s top-rated beach-front hotel has impeccable house-keeping, in-house social events, full-kitchens, granite baths, private balconies, and shuttle service to shopping, dinner, and local attractions.
