Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival in Barbados, you will be met by a local representative and transferred to your nearby accommodation in Oistins. After checking in you will have the evening to relax.

  • Spend the day relaxing on the beautiful Enterprise Beach or venture out to explore Oistins.

  • Oistins comes to life on a Friday when the weekly fish fry takes place. Tasty food is accompanied by live music and a street party atmosphere. Not to be missed!

  • Leave your accommodation in Oistins today and transfer to Bridgetown Marina in time to meet your cruise. Spend the next seven nights onboard the magnificent Royal Clipper sailing vessel. Cruise from Barbados to Martinique and back taking in the beautiful islands of Saint Lucia and Dominica en route.

  • Throughout the morning, the ship continues sailing toward the next port of call, Saint Lucia’s Rodney Bay. Saint Lucia is perhaps one of the Caribbean’s most iconic destinations, easily spotted by its verdant interior and plunging seaside mountains — the famous Pitons.

  • Today the Royal Clipper unites with its sister ship, the Star Flyer, sailing together to Cabrits on the northwest tip of Dominica. The large national park is home to lush tropical forest, native wildlife and the resorted British garrison at Fort Shirley where you are afforded panoramic views of Prince Rupert Bay.

  • Today, sailing takes you to Falmouth Harbour in Antigua, the playground to the rich and famous and the epicenter of the Caribbean yachting world. This was one of the well-trodden haunts of Admiral Nelson, so much so that one of the docks is named after him.

  • Saint Kitts was the first successful colony in the British West Indies and makes for an interesting day exploring. Shop in colorful Basseterre or tour the old plantation houses, or for the adventurous, there is a brisk hike available through the rainforest. Later this afternoon, Royal Clipper stops at South Friar’s Bay.

  • Early this morning the ship moors off Les Saintes — an entrancing group of islands just off Guadeloupe. Here you can enjoy the superb beaches, snorkeling and water sports on offer.

  • Martinique is the classic French Caribbean island. Wild and mysterious, yet urbane and sophisticated, it is France with a tropical twist, with something for almost everyone. You won't be able to resist the charms of spicy Creole cooking and tempting boutiques in Fort-de-France.

  • Upon disembarking your cruise, you will be met and transferred to Little Good Harbour, located on the northwest coast of the island near Speightstown.

  • Enjoy your first full day at Little Good Harbour. Why not try the hotel's popular Fish Pot restaurant? You can enjoy your leisurely lunch or romantic dinner indoors in the cosy restaurant space or alfresco on the outdoor terrace, admiring the scenic views while having your delicious meals.

  • Another day at leisure. Pay a visit to St. Nicholas Abbey — the birthplace of rum or visit Speightstown to learn about the town's rich history and culture.

  • You'll have most of the day at leisure before being transferred back to the airport in time for your overnight flight home.
