You will have the day to put yourself in a “New York state of mind” with a city overview that highlights the landmarks of Manhattan.

If you prefer, you can visit the powerful 9/11 Memorial or tour the city’s waterways by luxury catamaran. As you depart New York Harbor this evening, enjoy fantastic views of one of the world’s most celebrated skylines, watched over by Lady Liberty.

Day 3 — Cruise the Atlantic Ocean

You will dock in the heart of Hamilton, the capital and cultural center of the British Territory of Bermuda. Breathtaking pink-sand beaches and a distinct English flavor greet you at every turn as you walk the pastel-hued streets, tour the historic town of St. George, the longest continuously inhabited English settlement in the New World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and explore the island’s old garrison. We remain docked in Hamilton overnight, giving you the chance to explore this magical archipelago to its fullest.

You have today to discover more of Bermuda on an optional excursion or on your own. You have seven major islands to explore, and countless beaches to relax on. On the South Shore, you can visit idyllic Horseshoe Bay. Journey to the pink-sand Warwick Long Bay. Or join the locals in their Bermuda shorts on one of the many golf courses.

Day 8 — 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 Harbor. 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 beautiful scenery has not changed since Nelson’s day, blanketed with tropical forests and punctuated by sheer cliffs dropping into blue waters.

Day 9 — Roseau, Dominica

Immerse yourself in the vibrancy of this colorful 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 center, you will be surrounded by beautiful countryside. Visit the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean as you explore its waterfalls, its rainforests, Freshwater Lake and hot water pools. Go on an invigorating river tube safari or attend an inspiring talk by a renowned local artist.

Day 10 — 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.

Day 11 — Philipsburg, St. Martin
