St. Maarten to St. Maarten
Savor grilled chicken marinated in tart lime blended with hot chilies and fragrant ginger. Calypso melodies backed by the warm, bright pulse of steel drums. This 17-day Caribbean cruise throughout the Lesser Antilles islands is rich in sensory indulgences that go beyond orange sunsets and whispering palm fronds tousled by trade winds. Set sail from Philipsburg’s pastel-painted shops and boutiques to Antiqua’s horseshoe-shaped Falmouth Harbour, where you can golf, zip line or hike high above this tiny port. Swim with dolphins or ride a catamaran that takes you from Tortola’s Soper’s Hole to Norman Island, the inspirational setting for Robert Lewis Stevenson’s Treasure Island
. Dance or dine late into warm evenings during later stays in Antigua and St. Barts. Seek out green turtles, a shipwreck and brightly colored tropical fish from the windows of a semi-submersible near Gustavia’s St. Barts Marine Park. Drift by the Buried City ruins of Plymouth near Little Bay. Grab a tube and float gentle river currents near Roseau. Ascend into the green rainforest canopy on an aerial tram near Casteries, St. Lucia. Snorkel among coral, small shellfish and dizzying tropical fish schools near Bequia. This remarkable journey concludes in Philipsburg, St. Maarten, where you can shop Front Street’s designer fashions, or take a tour of St. Maarten Island and taste distinct French cuisine like foie gras and escargot paired with Burgundian wines.
