Itinerary

 
Day Philipsburg, Sint Maarten
Departs 07:00 PM
"This Leeward island has been famously bisected into French and Dutch territories since 1648, and is referred to both as Saint Martin and Sint Maarten. In their respective capitals—Marigot and Philipsburg—there are ancient stone forts and candy-colored buildings lining winding streets. The Dutch side has a slightly larger population but is a bit smaller, at 34 square kilometers (13 square miles), versus the 53-square-kilometer (20-square-mile) Saint Martin. Named for its founder John Philips, Philipsburg, the capital of the Dutch side, has some excellent international art galleries, thumping discos and popular casinos. Farther afield are beautiful beaches and a seemingly endless array of nature conservancies. With them come extensive opportunities for adventure—hiking, biking and zip lining—and amazing wildlife sightings in the sea, on land and in the sky."

Day Bridgetown, Barbados
Arrives 08:00 AM Departs 05:00 PM
"Barbadians, or Bajans in local parlance, consider their island nation the most British of the Caribbean: Queen Elizabeth II is still head of state, and English products are stocked in many of its stores and restaurants. Barbados is known as the birthplace of international pop star Rihanna, but it has also produced some of the biggest Caribbean calypso and soca music stars. The summer Crop Over festival is a huge carnival event. With live music and crafts for sale, the popular Friday fish fry at Oistins Bay is a fun place to mingle with the locals. Centered around a waterway called the Careenage and its handsome Chamberlain Bridge, the historic center of Bridgetown, the country's capital, was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 2011 for its wealth of British colonial architecture dating from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Among the famous figures who visited Bridgetown when it was at its peak was none other than George Washington, who spent two months in 1751 in a house that still stands today, on his only trip abroad."

Day Castries, Saint Lucia
Arrives 08:00 AM Departs 06:00 PM
So you think you've "done" the Caribbean? St. Lucia kindly asks you to think again. With mountain peaks, plunging valleys, lush rain forests, historic sites, tropical flora and fauna and the world's only drive-in volcano, this island of 165,000 residents is more than just pretty palm-fringed beaches along a turquoise sea—though there happen to be plenty of those, too. No wonder France and England battled for nearly 200 years to control this sun-kissed island. Wayfarers arriving these days have less nefarious plans and want only to preside over St. Lucia's legendary natural wonders and eco-adventures. Choose a heart-thumping hike up the Pitons—named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004—or a treetop tram ride over the flower- and bird-filled rain forest. Humdrum may be hard to find, but there are plenty of warm welcomes from friendly locals. The island's eclectic culture and history are shared daily through the Creole patois spoken in markets and on street corners, in the French names of colorful fishing villages and in savory recipes infused with African, French and Carib heritage. And have we mentioned the sublime sunsets? Some Caribbean islands really do have it all.

Day At Sea

 
 
Day Soper's Hole, Tortola, B.V.I. / Jost Van Dyke, Great Harbour, B.V.I.
Arrives 08:00 AM Departs 06:00 PM / Arrives 07:00 PM Departs 11:59 PM
Arrive at the boardwalk of Pusser’s Landing and mingle with other yachtsmen in the utterly charming marina at Soper’s Hole. Find a deserted stretch of beach to kick back and ponder this tiny port’s rich heritage of romance, pirates, and adventure. An evening departure features a once-in-a-lifetime sunset Sail Away and cruise that glides along Sir Francis Drake Channel and on through “The Narrows.”

Jost Van Dyke, Great Harbour, B.V.I.

For an island comprised of a mere eight square miles, it’s amazing how much there is to do on Jost Van Dyke. Visit the national park on nearby Diamond Cay, snorkel among swaying sponges and angelfish at Sandy Spit, or pilot your own boat around Sir Francis Drake Waterway. After all that, you’ll be ready for an evening drink on the beach — where you can admire your Windstar ship aglow in the harbor.

Virgin Gorda, Prickly Pear Beach, B.V.I

A beautiful coral reef wavers just beneath you as your ship makes the break into exclusive North Sound. You can imagine the reaction of the locals watching from The Bitter End Yacht Club as your ship comes around the corner under full canvas. At the other end of the island lies the curious assembly of house-sized boulders called “The Baths,” which form huge underground pools and caverns that you’re free to explore.

Day Gustavia, Saint Barthelemy
Arrives 08:00 AM Departs 10:00 PM
"St. Barts, a French territory in the Caribbean's Leeward Islands, is the ultimate jet-set beach destination. Its 14 pristine beaches are jewels set in sparkling waters, the cuisine is infused with a French flair and the scene is cosmopolitan chic. Other islands in the region might be casual and laid-back, but here the dress code is stylish caftans, oversize sunglasses and sky-high heels. And the preferred mode of transportation is the yacht. Gustavia, the capital and main port of St. Barts (also spelled St. Barths), embodies the island's international appeal. A former fishing village, it was named for King Gustav III of Sweden—the Swedes occupied the island in the early 19th century, leaving a legacy of names and sites. The town's winding streets are lined with high-end boutiques, excellent restaurants and plenty of bars where you can toast your visit with a glass of refreshing rosé. A handful of historic sites, including forts and a lighthouse, add to the attractions. "
