10 days from Miami and back again aboard Ms. Riviera
Next Departure: Winter
Grand Turk – Discover the serene beauty of this little island as you walk through the town, see the old salt pans and windmills and watch flamingos, pelicans and other birds preen, feed and socialize. Travel to Gibbs Cay National Park and snorkel in its pristine waters, swim with southern stingrays or just relax on the beach.
San Juan – Begin in Old San Juan, a walled enclave of hundreds of restored 16th and 17th century Spanish colonial buildings. Notice the blue-tinged cobblestone streets; they were once ballast on Spanish ships. Elsewhere, tour the medieval Saint John the Baptist Cathedral, the Museum of Art, and Casa del Libro, a repository of priceless documents.
Gustavia – Tour this beautiful island and marvel at the rugged coastline and its unspoiled, upscale atmosphere, unique in the Caribbean for its Swedish and French heritage. Enjoy the spectacular beaches and resorts, snorkel or dive in the crystalline waters, or see underwater wonders from a semi-submersible marine vessel.
Philipsburg – Snorkel amidst the exotic fish and majestic coral reefs in the undersea world of Shipwreck Cove. Egrets, plovers, pelicans and herons are among the wildlife found via kayak tours of the beautiful saltwater lagoons. Discover the dazzling colors of hundreds of butterflies on the ever-popular Butterfly Farm. With a little training from local sailing professionals, you can even navigate a race on an America’s Cup course onboard the world-renowned sailboat, Stars and Stripes.
Tortola – Spend a glorious day swimming at famed Cane Garden Bay Beach, hiking in the rainforest or enjoying a scenic drive around this lush island. Swim with dolphins, go sea kayaking, or head over to Virgin Gorda and climb down to the famous Baths for a day of swimming and exploring this natural phenomenon.
Cayo Levantado – Spend a day exploring this unspoiled peninsula, from its superb white sand beaches and wonderful coral reefs to its coconut-covered mountains and rainforest with clear, rushing streams. Samaná Bay is one of the great wintering locations for the humpback whale with thousands of whales migrating from the Arctic.
Nassau – Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas and has been the centerpiece of this island nation since the days of Blackbeard. The history has been wonderfully preserved in stately cathedrals and in Victorian mansions displaying elegant, noble architecture.
