With its idyllic pink-sand beaches, emerald hills and valleys, and rich Bajan flavor, Barbados is an unforgettable destination in its own right. And for the first time ever, this tropical paradise unlocks spectacular shores in the southern Caribbean, Central America and beyond —including three new ports in Tobago, Trinidad and St. Vincent.

    7-Night Southern Caribbean Island Hop Itinerary:

    Day 1: Bridgetown, Barbados

    You’ll find Bridgetown strikes a fine mix of island warmth and English heritage. Stately colonial buildings intermingle with colorful wooden homes, open-air markets, and catch-of-the-day cafes. Outside of the bustle of “Town,” as the locals call it, Barbados is a new kind of paradise in any direction. Cruise to Barbados and head towards the shore for pink-and-white-sand beaches that stretch on endlessly and crystal clear turquoise waters. Or stick to the center of the island, you’ll find rolling hills and valleys, sugarcane fields and historic plantations. You can even travel underground to discover limestone caves with their own waterfalls.

    Day 2: Scarborough, Tobago

    Travellers often overlook Tobago for its better-known neighbor, Trinidad — but this tiny island is a true Caribbean gem. Its north coast is full of secluded coves waiting to be explored, and its south coast unlocks incredible snorkel and dive sites, including Buccoo Reef, Flying Reef, and Bon Accord Lagoon. Laid-back Scarborough is the perfect jumping off point to explore the island, but it also offers plenty of ways to wile away the day — like a stroll through its botanical gardens, a visit to Fort King George, or a great meal of curry crab and dumplings at one of its charming open-air cafes.

    Day 3: Port of Spain, Trinidad

    Nestled along the calm, blue-green waters of the Gulf of Paria, Port of Spain is a popular starting point for those looking to explore the best of Trinidad. The city has its fair share of marvels, too — it’s home to a centuries-old fortress, gorgeous botanical gardens, and a good number of picturesque churches. And nearby you’ll find plenty of outdoor adventures, from the shaded mangroves and winding silver rivers of the Caroni Wetlands, to the postcard-pretty sweep of shore known as Maracas Beach.

    Day 4: St. George's, Grenada

    If variety is the spice of life, then Grenada is the taste of the tropics. The intoxicating aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves fill the air wherever you go. Take your pick of 45 sun-kissed beaches to lounge on, or hit the jungle-covered mountain range for more rugged adventures. Stroll through the 125-year-old Sendall Tunnel to reach the Carenage waterfront promenade. Cruise to Grenada and grab a seat at an open-air café and admire the steep streets lined with colonial buildings and colorful 18th-century warehouses. And holding true to its nickname of Spice Island, you’ll find several spice plantations and estates here too.

    Day 5: Kingstown, St. Vincent

    Secluded white sand beaches lapped by sparkling waters, vibrant coral reefs, and hiking trails through lush, emerald jungles — St. Vincent and the Grenadines embody what most people think of when picturing the perfect Caribbean getaway. Kingstown, St. Vincent’s capital and main port, is a beautiful place to kick off your exploration of the main island’s many wonders. With its beautiful botanical gardens, charming 19th-century churches, lively produce market and rainforest rambles, it has plenty to keep you busy in between beach breaks.

    Day 6: Roseau, Dominica

    Dominica isn’t nicknamed ‘Nature Island’ for nothing. Its 290 square miles of towering mountains, thriving rainforests, and rushing waterfalls deserve all that cred and then some. But the true pulse of the island beats in Roseau. It may be one of the smallest capitals in the Caribbean, but don’t let its size fool you— Roseau is electric with cultural energy. The spicy aroma of Creole home cooking wafts through food stalls at the Roseau Market. Reggae and soca beats spill from the windows of centuries-old stone-and-wood buildings and parties erupt around jing ping bands at hotspots like Bala’s Bar at the Fort Young Hotel. During your cruise to Dominica, you’ll quickly notice that Roseau doesn’t march to the beat of its own drum — it dances.

    Day 7: Castries, St. Lucia 

    From dramatic landscapes molded by ancient volcanoes to sparkling palm-fringed beaches, St. Lucia is some amazing Caribbean eye candy. Luxury resorts nestle up to the natural beauty, giving this island just the right touch of exclusivity. Cruise to St. Lucia and explore the coast by catamaran. Hike to the peaks of the soaring twin Pitons. Tour rainforests and explore the fishing villages of Anse-La-Raye. In the capital of Castries, you’ll find touches of French and British heritage, from the architecture to the cuisine.

    Day 8: Bridgetown, Barbados

    You’ll find Bridgetown strikes a fine mix of island warmth and English heritage. Stately colonial buildings intermingle with colorful wooden homes, open-air markets, and catch-of-the-day cafes. Outside of the bustle of “Town,” as the locals call it, Barbados is a new kind of paradise in any direction. Cruise to Barbados and head towards the shore for pink-and-white-sand beaches that stretch on endlessly and crystal clear turquoise waters. Or stick to the center of the island, you’ll find rolling hills and valleys, sugarcane fields and historic plantations. You can even travel underground to discover limestone caves with their own waterfalls.
