Lively. Legendary. Inimitable.

See the sights, shop up a storm, stroll through the streets and more – however you spend your time, you’ll leave singing the city’s praises.
Puerto Rico’s capital and largest city offers travellers two destinations in one: Old San Juan and New San Juan. Get a glimpse into the past as you walk down the quaint, cobblestone streets of Old San Juan and admire the colonial Spanish architecture. Then enjoy the amenities and attractions of New San Juan, including a collection of shops, restaurants, resorts, casinos, clubs and bars.
Famous for its duty-free shopping, picture-perfect scenery and flawless beaches, the beautiful island of St. Thomas provides cruisers with plenty to be excited about. In Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the US Virgin Islands, you can snag a bargain with duty-free jewellery and watches, and climb the famous ’99 steps’ staircase (there are actually 103 steps) to enjoy amazing vistas of the island and its surrounds.
The largest island in the British Virgin Islands, Tortola is where you’ll discover powdery white-sanded beaches, sheltered harbours, hidden coves, and some of the best sites for diving and snorkelling. Take yourself to a palm-shaded, secluded stretch of beach and unwind with nothing but the sand, sun and surf for your companions.
Whether you’re in Dutch St. Maarten or French St. Martin, you’ll be in seventh heaven on this popular Caribbean island. Feast on gourmet cuisine, make the most of duty-free shopping and pick up a few souvenirs, relax with a cocktail at one of the many beach bars and soak up the sun at the famous Orient Beach.
After docking at the port city of St. John’s, the island of Antigua will be yours to explore. Marvel at the beauty and marine life of the island’s coral reefs, lie back on the white sand of a local beach, visit the markets, which overflow with colourful fruits and flowers, and walk past quaint colonial cottages.
Don’t forget your camera when you disembark at Basseterre, St. Kitts’ capital city and port. This island is well known for its indescribable beauty, from its sunny skies and sandy beaches to its magnificent mountains, forests and waterfalls.
