2013 Holiday Caribbean Cruise
December 28, 2013-January 4, 2014

It is exciting to celebrate the arrival of a brand new year while sailing the Caribbean Sea From the beautiful beaches in Antigua, to the wonderful shopping in St. Maarten, each island has something special to offer.

Each day you wake up in the port of another beautiful Caribbean Island, Palm trees swaying and calypso music playing, Paradise.
There is nothing more relaxing than floating on the water sipping a cool drink.

Maybe the Christmas Holidays are the best time of the year for you.  If so, this cruise is the icing on that cake. But if the holidays are stressful, lonely and  overwhelming, I think you will find this cruise a better option for you.  Our New Years' Eve cruise usually attracts a smaller group, we are usually about 15-18 people.   You will get to know and enjoy your travel companions.  We bring husbands and significant others to enjoy bringing in the New Year .  He will love this cruise, I promise. 

Cruises are inclusive vacations so your meals, fabulous meals, accommodations and lots of entertainment is already included in the price.

I try to get you to book early to get the best choice of cabins.  The people I booked today have Balcony cabins on Deck 10 with amazing views of the Caribbean Sea and its lovely islands.  Prices as of today for this are amazing low.  Even a Single Balcony Cabin is less than $3,000.  

Our Ports of Call:
We sail from San Juan, Puerto Rico, followed by Tortola, British Virgin Islands, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, Roseau, Dominica, Bridgetown, Barbados, and Basseterre, St. Kitts.

The city of Trinidad in Cuba. Tourism officials like to say Trinidad is a museum in itself. Those visiting the 500-year-old city will find Spanish colonial architecture, underscoring a colonial ambiance that marks the tiny city one of the country’s greatest attractions. Only a few square blocks in size, historic Trinidad is famous for its lovely, cobblestone streets, pastel coloured houses with elaborate wrought-iron grills, as well as beautiful palaces and plazas. The city can be toured in a few hours, by foot or by horse-drawn carriage.
