Dinner included. Overnight on board the Braemar.

Friday 1st March

Today we shall begin our discovery of the Caribbean in Bridgetown, Barbados’ capital and only city. Barbados has been inhabited since the 13th century by the Kalinago people and prior to this by the Amerindians. The Spanish came to the island in the 15th century before the British claimed it for King James I. The city has an incredible story to tell, much of this hailing from its days as the primary hub for the sugar trade of the British Empire. Barbados was established as an independent Commonwealth country in 1966 and has since enjoyed an astronomical rise in popularity as a tourist destination. The city is also home to some fantastic indoor markets, where local crafts, materials and clothes can be negotiated over.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner Included. Overnight on board the Braemar.

Saturday 2nd March

Today we arrive at the capital of Grenada, St George’s. Grenada boasts an abundance of dazzling white sand beaches, lined with luscious and bright rainforests and is regarded by many as the most idyllic of the Caribbean isles. Once we have docked, we shall embark on a tour of the “spice island” and uncover all the hidden charms this understated island has to offer.  We start our day by heading along the West Coast, making our way to the Concord Waterfalls; three cascading waterfalls, surrounded by spice trees and exotic flowers. You may wish to take a dip in the revitalising and refreshing pools after our walk to reach these feats of natural beauty.

Following from this, we shall carry on to the nearby fishing village Gouyave and its spice plantation where we shall learn the about picking spices and the process that follows. After this, we shall head to another institution of life on the island – the chocolate factory. Here we will walk through the cocoa fields and our guide will explain how each delectable piece of chocolate is formed – we shall then have the opportunity to sample the sumptuous treat! On our way back to the ship, we shall briefly head inland to catch a glimpse of the beauty that lies within – such as the Grand Etang Lake and the archaic, crumbling plantations that stand still in time.

The origin of this name is easy to see as we drive along the coast line, with shores coated in washed up coral. Today our tour takes us to some of the most pivotal parts of Bonaire and its history, such as the famous pink waters of the salt planes and the deeply poignant slave huts that act as a reminder of what has been overcome. We’ll also have the opportunity for a unique tasting experience – have you ever tried drinking a cactus? After this, you can say yes!

Along the way we will stop at the capital, Cockburn, a town that has played a vital role in the shaping of life in Grand Turk. Find streets lined with ancient houses and government offices. The architecture here reflects the various influences of the past, such as the salt harvesters and miners who resided here in the late 1600s. Here we’ll have some time to wander through these streets steeped with history and soak up the collection of cultures that have led to the formation of Grand Turk as you see it.
