Enjoy a fantastic Caribbean Cruise by flying out and cruising home to Tilbury
Fly out from London to Montego bay and cruise back to Tilbury for an epic 19 night voyage. Sample different cultures of the islands this cruise visits. Some of them are iconic. Saint Maarten for example has a Dutch and French side, the Dutch side is where you dock and is the cheaper side of the island. This side is where I always stay and go up to Maho Beach by the airport before coming back into Philipsburg for shopping and taking the water taxi back to the ship. For first timers it is well worth doing a tour that does both sides of the island to show you the comparison.
In Antigua take a trip to Nelson’s Dockyard an iconic part of any tour of the Island and why not stop for lunch there at one of the restaurants by the marina. It makes for a wonderful setting for lunch which is what I did on my last visit there. For sun lovers there are plenty of beaches to visit if that is your preference for the day. You are also docked in the very heart of the shopping area and with so many shops to chose from you will be pressed to find the time to do everything during your visit here.
Barbados speaks for itself, an iconic British Island although the currency they prefer is US$ or Eastern Caribbean dollars. One thing you need to make sure when people are quoting you a price is if it is Eastern Caribbean dollars or US dollar price. I was once tricked having been told a taxi was 45 dollars which was Eastern Caribbean and I should have only been charged US$20. He obviously didn’t tell me that as he made double what he should have. So if I can get fooled I’m sure many of you out there also could end up in that situation. Here in Barbados you can visit the Concorde Centre which is where I was going when the taxi over charged me, there is a charge to visit but well worth it if you have never seen Concorde up close or sat on it before. It is amazing just how small the space inside is considering this was over and above first class.
These are just a few of the places you visit on this cruise.
