PONANT brings you an itinerary to the heart of the most enchanting islands in the Caribbean Sea. Board on Le Dumont-d'Urville for a 9-day cruise combining long white-sand beaches and the easy Creole way of life.
After boarding your ship in Barbados at the port of Bridgetown, whose UNESCO-listed historic centre shows the extent of British colonial presence here, you will head for one of the pearls of the Grenadines: the island of Bequia. Small picturesque villages and brightly coloured coral reefs are some of its attractions…
Your ship will then sail to Les Saintes, a highly popular anchorage site with crystal-clear waters and fabulous seabeds, before making its way to Fort-de-France. The capital of Martinique fosters a dynamic Creole culture. Make sure to visit one of its renowned rum distilleries !
Further south, Le Dumont-d'Urville will reach the magnificent beach of the island of Mayreau in the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines archipelago. After a call at Grenada, your ship will anchor in the Tobago Cays National Park. This rosary of islands bound together by the most beautiful coral reef in the West Indies, will reveal its incredible underwater wildlife.
You will then sail towards Saint Lucia and its two majestic rocky peaks soaring straight from the sea, a unique location listed as UNESCO World Heritage site.
An experienced diving instructor is on board for the entire cruise, enabling you to safely enjoy swimming and scuba diving.
