On these treasured islands, sub-tropical rainforests, historic harbours, bustling towns and the exotic aromas of local cuisine ensure, that under a swathe of brilliant blue sky, lies an island with its own unique personality.

We are offering 8 fly-cruises to the sun-kissed Caribbean. Always popular, they offer the opportunity to discover rainforests, tropical wildlife, colonial cities, blue skies, sandy beaches and exotic cocktails. Some cruises call into ports on the Caribbean mainland.
