Guided Cruise and Walking Holidays - Islands in the Caribbean
Whether you want to put on your walking shoes or step bare foot onto powder soft sands, on a Caribbean cruise life moves at more relaxed pace. 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.
