Day 1Port of Call Port CanaveralDeparture 4:00pm

Overview

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to find Port Canaveral thrilling. This is the home of the Kennedy Space Center, where you can catch a fascinating glimpse into the history - and future - of the U.S. space program. Or, take a leisurely stroll along the Cocoa Beach Pier; the shopping is great and the beach views are truly "out of this world."

Day 2 Cruising
Day 3 Cruising
Day 4Port of Call Saint Croix Arrival 8:00amDeparture 6:00pm

Overview

Saint Croix is the largest of the Virgin Islands. Christiansted and Frederiksted are the two main cities to see while on Saint Croix. There is so much to do and see while in Saint Croix that partaking in a guided tour is often advised. Buck Island Reef is perhaps one of the most unique national monuments in the United States because it is underwater. The two major underwater trails are the East End Trail and the Turtle Bay Trail. After exploring the reefs, head over to Cramer Park and enjoy a nice picnic lunch. On weekends DJ's set up shop and spin some great music. The rum produced in the Virgin Islands' is infamous. To see how the entire process happens take a tour of the Cruzan Rum Distillery. Point Udall is the most eastern point in the United Sates. This is one of the most picturesque spots on the island. Saint Croix has 15 acres of privately owned Rain Forest that is open to visitors at certain times. Lush foliage, stately tress and graceful mountain doves all create a serene untouched environment. St. Croix Leap is located in the Rain Forest. Woodcarvers create beautiful sculptures and furniture from the mahogany that grows on-sight. The Whim Greathouse is a historical point of interest. A main house, bathhouse, watch house, windmill and cook house are all located on the property. The property even has an apothecary. Located on the Caribbean, Christiansted is an absolutely breathtaking city. The Government House, which was built in 1747, is open to the public. The Outdoor Market is the best spot on the island to get fresh fruit. Christiansted also has some beautiful old churches. The city of Frederiksted also has many historical points of interest. The Old Danish School dates back to the 1830's. St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church was constructed with opulent coral stone. The Market, which has been a part of the city since 1751, still thrives today

Day 5Port of Call Philipsburg Arrival 8:00amDeparture 6:00pm

Overview

Philipsburg is the capital of St. Maarten, the Dutch side of the Caribbean island St. Maarten. Beachfront bars line the boardwalk along Great Bay. Voorstraat, or Front Street, has duty-free shops and casinos. The St. Maarten Zoo is home to parrots, monkeys and a playground. St. Maarten Museum displays artifacts from the indigenous Arawak people. The ruins of 17th-century Fort Amsterdam stand on a nearby peninsula.

Day 6Port of Call San Juan Arrival 7:00amDeparture 2:00pm

Overview

San Juan, Puerto Rico's capital and largest city, sits on the island's Atlantic coast. Its widest beach fronts the Isla Verde resort strip, known for its bars, nightclubs and casinos. Cobblestoned Old San Juan features colorful Spanish colonial buildings and 16th-century landmarks including El Morro and La Fortaleza, massive fortresses with sweeping ocean views, as well as the Paseo de la Princesa bayside promenade.

Day 7Port of Call Labadi/Labadee Arrival 10:00amDeparture 5:00pm

Overview

Labadie has the distinctive charm of delivering in just one place some of the best beaches of the Caribbean, a bit of History and a bright, colorful palette of arts, crafts and people. “Habitation Labadie” to be correct, is a mix of traditional Haitian dwellings and prosperous hill-perched villas. Further west along the coast, another beach, and then suddenly around a bend, the magnificent Baie d’Acul (Bay of Acul), almost completely closed off from the Ocean and immune to any storm. Christopher Columbus used that bay as a shelter during his first voyage. The Santa Maria, Columbus’ flag ship, fell victim to a reef further down the cost from Acul near the Haitian town of Caracol. Across the bay, many small islands and reefs complete the vista. On a clear day, you can see the famous Ile de la Tortue (Tortuga Island) on the horizon. The beach of Labadie is one of the most well-kept and well-equipped of the country. It is also one of the beaches most visited by foreign tourists.

Day 8 Cruising
Day 9Port of Call Port Canaveral Arrival 7:00am
