CARIBBEAN & LATIN AMERICA

Palm trees, rainforest and the Amazon

If there’s one thing the Caribbean was made for, it’s cruising. Here you can explore numerous islands in just one holiday, and you might be surprised at just how unique each encounter is. With British, French, Dutch and Spanish settlers coming and going throughout history, you will find a kaleidoscope of architectural styles, cultures and cuisines. 

Cruise the Spanish Main of pirate legend. Discover rainforests, tropical wildlife, colonial cities, blue skies, sandy beaches and salsa. Some cruises call into ports on the Caribbean mainland, whilst one sails down to Brazil for an exploration of the Amazon.

Our unique shore walks and excursions include:

Barbados: We walk through the lush tropical world of Welchman’s Hall Gully and Andromeda Gardens, and enjoy a famous flying fish sandwich lunch at Sunbury Plantation.

Tortola: We visit the Botanical Gardens and then, with a guide, walk in the Sage Mountain area, a forest walk on the edge of a former plantation.

St Lucia: A local guide accompanies us along the Millet Trail, a pleasant circular path where if lucky we may see parrots, orioles and finches… and possibly boa constrictors. We end the day with a swim in Marigot Bay.

Antigua: We hike with a local guide through rain forest to Signal Hill for a 360º view over the island, and then enjoy a barbeque at the art gallery home of one of our guides.

Fort-de-France, Martinique: The largest city in the French West Indies is surrounded by steep green hills. We walk in the foothills of the mountains where verdant floral displays are abundant.

Grenada: A short trip by water taxi takes us across to Grand Anse beach, two miles of palm-fringed white sand beach. Here we walk and swim.

Manaus: In the heart of the Amazon we travel by water and on foot and have fun learning jungle survival skills.

If you are looking for our Colombian Experience Holiday, it has moved to our sister brand Chapters Experience Holidays and can be found here. Chapters Experience Holidays is born of the success of our walking holidays and now encompass activities that even more closely complement the destinations we offer.

    It’s likely to be hot throughout our sailings – there is little difference between day and night temperatures. Accordingly our walks will be taken at a slower pace, and there will be time for swimming and wildlife spotting.

    We’re using the services of several expert bush guides to get us nearer to the historical and natural heart of the Caribbean. At the end of each day, we will return to Braemar for an excellent dinner and the chance to watch sunset over the Caribbean.

    In Barbados ?breakfast will be taken in the hotel and dinner will be taken in either ?the hotel or a local restaurant.

    On board ship all meals are included and you start the day with breakfast, a buffet arrangement where you can choose from fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, a full English breakfast, cheeses, cold cuts, breads, pastries, fresh juices and unlimited tea or coffee.

    We’ll take our lunches onboard on cruising days and when we’re out for the day we’ll be provided with a packed lunch.

    Dinner is taken in a stylish restaurant with smiling courteous waiting staff creating a wonderful atmosphere for your evening meal. We are booked for dinner at 18.15hrs to allow you plenty of time to also enjoy the evening entertainment if you wish. Don’t forget your formal wear, as you will be encouraged to ’dress for dinner’ on one or two occasions.

    And if this is not enough, there is also morning coffee, afternoon tea and extensive late night suppers to indulge in!  We’ll also have an exclusive drinks party for our group one evening in addition to the Captain’s welcome and farewell parties and a traditional afternoon tea with waiter service on one of our sea days.
