Winter Antilles Escape

7 days | San Juan to Bridgetown | Nov 6, 2019 & Feb 5, 2020

San Juan • Vieques • Gustavia • Little Bay • Roseau • Pigeon Island • St. George’s • Bridgetown

Uncurl your frozen toes as you escape the winter doldrums during this week-long cruise featuring sundrenched beaches and steamy tropical rainforests along the Lesser Antilles Islands in the Caribbean. Set sail from the colorful Colonial Era homes and shops in San Juan, Puerto Rico, then roam like the untethered horses across the tiny island of Vieques, wandering barefoot on beige sandy beaches, or delving deep into the shady, tropical recesses of the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge. Gleaming white sands, sparkling turquoise waters and Philipsburg’s vibrant pastel buildings offer respite from the starker winter hues up north this time of year, but if you’re seeking culinary adventures, the delicious saltfish fritters, meat-filled pastries and potent and refreshing fruity Le Planteur punch will certainly compete for your attention. Learn about the future plans for Montserrat’s newly-developed capital in Little Bay, or visit the ghostly past among the dusty ruins of the Buried City, where former homes remain entombed in volcanic ash. Glide among geothermal bubbles and schools of flitting angelfish, blue tang, yellow goatfish, and blue-striped grunts just off the sloping shores of Roseau’s Champagne Beach. Soar into the treetops in an open-air gondola ride, taking in Pigeon Island’s rare avian and arboreal wonders high above a rainforest reserve. Master SCUBA diving in the company of expert divers or venture inland and sample delicious organic gourmet chocolate at a cocoa processing facility near St. George's in Grenada. Your adventure concludes in Bridgetown, Barbados, where you can reflect upon memories and deeper thoughts in the quiet shadows of the Gothic-inspired, St. John’s Church, or find the perfect surf conditions during a drive up the scenic Gold Coast.

Vieques • Gustavia • Little Bay • St Maarten • Jost Van Dyke • Virgin Gorda • San Juan

Begin and end your journey where Old World meets New, in historic San Juan, littered with more than 400 restored Spanish colonial buildings. As you continue on this bewitching Caribbean cruise through the Virgin Islands, no two days are alike. One day, you’re shopping chic French boutiques for the latest fashions from Paris. On another, snorkeling a secluded cove known only to lucky yachtsmen – like you. Skip more common and commercial ports in favor of less-visited destinations like Montserrat. Bypass the major cruise terminals in favor of exclusive marinas and anchorages on this Caribbean cruise. And as guests on larger cruise ships take an excursion from Tortola to reach tiny Jost Van Dyke, your elegant ship is already there.

Windward Islands Surf & Sunsets

San Juan • St Maarten • Les Saintes • Bequia • St Georges • Pigeon Island • San Juan

Revel in seven days of surf, sand and sunsets during this leisurely cruise up and down the Caribbean’s Windward Islands. It’s a perfect vacation getaway for anyone craving a quick escape from life’s everyday obligations. Swim among sea turtles and glide above dazzling coral reefs with a highly skilled diving guide off the coast of Les Saintes’ volcanic shoreline. Stroll the weather-beaten parapets of the citadel of El Morro near San Juan, Puerto Rico and run your fingers along the stone scars left by Dutch invasions and American bombardments. Then clip into a zip line and hang on as moss-covered limbs and colorful wild birds rush by your head as you glide through St. Lucia’s rainforest canopy. Vacation time is always well spent among the Windward Islands, but nothing makes it more perfect than the personalized attention and unique excursion opportunities offered by Windstar.

Activities & Entertainment

A day on board your Windstar yacht is a day of choices, all of them good. Perhaps you’ll begin with a relaxing massage in WindSpa. Or maybe an invigorating workout in the Fitness Center. Even better, why not both? After a sumptuous lunch in Veranda, make a splash from the Watersports Platform off the yacht’s stern. Everything you can think of for fun in the water is there — swimming, kayaking, sail-boarding, even water skiing. And it’s all complimentary, of course. Sun yourself on deck, take a dip in the whirlpool, then catch up on email or grab a DVD for your stateroom or suite in the Library. After dinner, try your luck in the Casino and dance to live music in the Lounge. This is your yacht, so of course you’re welcome on the Bridge, where the Captain and officers are delighted to share charts, routes, and vistas with you.

As you prepare for another amazing Windstar day, enjoy a nightcap anywhere you like — on deck, in the Lounge, or why not let us bring it to your suite or stateroom? Your day ends just as it began, blissfully.
