Day 3 - Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos Islands

Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos Islands

In February 2006 the Carnival Cruise Centre opened its doors in Grand Turk. This village type setting has now been completed to include the new Margaritaville. The concept reflected by Margaritaville Grand Turk is indicative of the kind of lyrics that Jimmy Buffett sings about. The island itself, Grand Turk, is the capitol of the Turks and Caicos Islands, which is significantly derived from historical connections with Bermuda. The newest addition to the Jimmy Buffett family, and the first Caribbean project outside Jamaica has been built in Grand Turk. Just minutes from the port in Grand Turk you come upon the newly built village. The colorful centre offers direct beach access, boasting crystal clear blue waters and mini spa services, with duty free shopping. Take in the beautiful view of the magnificent swimming pools and ocean. But there's still a place for those who want to slow the pace of life. Come see for yourself. We know your experience on this beautiful island will be nothing short of grand.


Day 4 - Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas & Virgin Islands

st thomas

States Virgin Islands and the most popular cruise port in the Caribbean. Charlotte Amalie (named for a Danish Queen) is where the ships dock and the white and pastel houses are heavily sprinkled against a background of emerald hills. Colorful sloops dock along the waterfront, and a few steps back, down alleyways lined with old Danish warehouse buildings. St. Thomas is one of the world’s top cruise ports. Its lofty popularity is earned because St. Thomas offers something for just about everyone. Its duty-free shopping scene is relatively unparalleled – and because St. Thomas is an American port, U.S. travelers get an extra duty-free allowance from customs. Other on-the-beaten-track sites include the world-famous Megan’s Bay and a scenic tram ride to a mountaintop. But it’s also amazingly easy to find some respite from the inevitable crowds by exploring St. Thomas’ quieter, more undiscovered side – a lovely historic district, trips to Water Island, north shore beaches, fabulous restaurants in Frenchtown and an easy jaunt, via 20-minute ferry, to tranquil St. John. While in St. Thomas take time out to visit the island of St. John.— it’s a lovely and enchanting island that is noted for its unmatched natural beauty, its tranquil peacefulness and its outstanding homes and villas.


Day 5 - Philipsburg, St. Maarten & Netherlands Antilles

St. Maarten/St. Martin – a vacation paradise of Dutch, French and Caribbean flavors. The island of St. Maarten is the smallest territory in the world shared by two sovereign states. Its only 37  miles, but is shared by the Dutch and the French. The Dutch side is known as St. Maarten, the French side St. Martin – offer a little European culture along with a lot of laid-back Caribbean ambience. Water sports abound – diving, snorkeling, scuba, sailing, windsurfing, and more. With soft trade winds cooling the subtropical climate, it’s easy to while away the day on one of the 37 beaches or try your luck at one of the 13 casinos. The island is well known for its shopping, gambling and beautiful beaches.


Day 6 - Half Moon Cay, Bahamas

halfmoon cay

Truly one of the most beautiful settings in the entire Caribbean. This privately owned 9.2 acre tropical island has over one mile of ocean front, white sand beaches, and crystal clear turquoise water. A secure and secluded hideaway undiscovered by the masses. Located on the second largest barrier reef in the world, with snorkeling and scuba diving off the beach, as well as wonderful fishing. Lush tropical foliage with nearly a mile of paths meandering through palm trees and exotic plants. Stop by the Market Square where an Irish party is in full swing. Dance to the great sounds of our Irish bands performing live under the gazebo. What a glorious setting, sunny skies, turquoise waters, palm trees with your cruise ship serving as a backdrop and you having the time of your life. Whether you want to parasail, snorkel, stroll barefoot on the beach, lie in a hammock beneath a palm tree or gain insight into Bahamian history and culture, you’ll find it at Half Moon Cay.
