11 nights^ • Various Departures 2019-2021
Call on a new port every day with Viking's destination-focused Caribbean itinerary, and experience a dazzling blend of turquoise waters, emerald isles and European legacies. After time to explore the colonial treasures of San Juan, immerse yourself in the British, French and Dutch cultures of the Lesser Antilles. Cruise spectacular azure waters from Tortola and St. Lucia to Guadeloupe, St. Maarten and St. Thomas.


Day 1: Fly UK » San Juan, Puerto Rico
Fly from the UK to San Juan. On arrival, transfer to your ship.

Day 2: San Juan, Puerto Rico
Explore El Viejo San Juan, or Old San Juan, with its seductive colonial charms, easy island tempo and authentic culture. Wander its narrow lanes, literally paved with history, laid with blue adoquín stone once used to ballast Spanish galleons. This evening, stroll the Old Town’s azure byways romantically illuminated by street lamps.

San Juan

Day 3: Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Witness the lush beauty that once lured the pirates Blackbeard and Captain Kidd to Tortola, part of the British Virgin Islands. You will traverse Tortola, ascending to its greatest heights to admire spectacular Caribbean vistas. Experience some of its British flavour, pass through charming fishing villages and cast your eyes on magnificent blue-green seascapes. Alternatively, take to the waters to explore the grottoes of Virgin Gorda.


Day 4: St. John's, Antigua
Visit Antigua today, once Britain’s “Gateway to the Caribbean.” On an island tour from our berth in St. John’s, you will admire lush green beauty all around and visit English Harbour. Its restored Georgian dockyard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is named for Admiral Horatio Nelson, who commanded the Crown’s fleet here in the 18th century. Today, yachts line the quays. But the island’s stunning scenery hasn’t changed since Nelson’s day, blanketed with tropical forests and punctuated by sheer cliffs dropping into blue waters.

St. John's, Antigua

Day 5: Castries, St. Lucia
Call on the lush and mountainous island of St. Lucia, with its sheltered harbours, quiet byways and Creole-inspired cuisine. A short drive from our berth in Castries, admire breathtaking views of azure waters and hillsides shrouded in tropical green. Witness the art of batik making here and glimpse prolific banana plantations. Or, venture across the island to view the spectacular Pitons, towering twin peaks draped in forests.

St. Lucia

Day 6: Bridgetown, Barbados
Relish the intense Caribbean beauty of Barbados today when you call on its capital, Bridgetown, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will discover ample evidence of British rule here, from cricket matches and afternoon tea to the Commonwealth’s third oldest Parliament. You will marvel at spectacular vistas from the heights of Farley Hill, descending to sea level and the roiling waves of Bathsheba’s Soup Bowl, popular with surfers. Or head underground to explore the stalactites and stalagmites of Harrison’s Cave.

St. Lucia

Day 7: Roseau, Dominica
Immerse in the vibrancy of this colourful West Indian Capital among its streets lined with old-stone and wooden buildings, with reggae music spilling onto every corner. Roseau is the most important port for foreign trade on the island, yet once you leave its bustling centre, you will be surrounded by beautiful countryside. Visit “The Nature Island” of the Caribbean as you explore its waterfalls, rainforests and beneath the ocean on a trip out to sea. Take a hike through its UNESCO listed National Park, and hear more about the island’s volcanic activity. Or discover its Kalinago Indian culture as you meet island natives and learn more about their traditions and rituals.


Day 8: St. Kitts (Basseterre), St. Kitts & Nevis
Call on St. Kitts today, Britain’s first Caribbean settlement that grew into a sugar-producing powerhouse; 68 plantations operated at the height of the boom. You will learn about this lucrative colonial era at St. Kitts’s Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden, a fascinating repository of relics and beautifully preserved rooms that provide a glimpse of the lives of sugar barons. Or visit the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

St Kitts

Day 9: St. Martin (Philipsburg)
Explore two countries on one island today when you call on St. Martin. You will dock on the Dutch side, in Philipsburg, and have the chance to contrast the two cultures. See the great salt pond on the Dutch side, the charming old village of Quartier-d’Orleans and the French capital, Marigot, called the “Caribbean Paris.” Or, choose to simply relax on the island’s famous Orient Beach, one and a half miles of gorgeous white sand.


Day 10: St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands (Charlotte Amalie)
Explore one of the Caribbean’s most beloved islands today, St. Thomas. You will dock within walking distance of its capital, Charlotte Amalie, set on one of the most picturesque harbours in the region. Get acquainted with the beauty of St. Thomas during a scenic drive along a spectacular route, stopping at the famous Mountain Top for breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding islands. Alternately, you might cross the emerald-green island to Magens Bay, home to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

St. Thomas

Day 11: Disembark in San Juan, Puerto Rico
Disembark your ship and transfer to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.
