Itinerary

Day 1 : Tampa

-- - 4:00 PM

Florida's third largest city, Tampa is a lively west coast port that still hints of its Spanish heritage. In the Latin Quarter stands Ybor City, site of the once flourishing cigar industry. Hugging Tampa Bay and near Tampa is St. Petersburg; some of the attractions found in the area include Busch Garden's The Dark Continent and Adventure Island, a water theme park.

Day 2 : Key West

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Key West is the southernmost point in the Continental United States and home of "Papa" Hemingway's noted hangout, Sloppy Joe's. Tour Presiden Truman's "Little White House" or bask on a beach that's just 90 miles from Cuba.

Day 3 : At Sea

Day 4 : Puerto Plata

7:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Whether for family fun, historical sight-seeing, sports, or leisurely activity, Puerto Plata will fulfill everyone's desires to the hilt!

Day 5 : Tortola

11:00 AM - 8:00 PM

Day 6 : St. Maarten

8:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Dutch St. Maarten is a great place to stop just to shop. Its capital is Philipsburg and fills a narrow stretch of land between Great Bay and the Great Salt Pond. It is a bustling center of international trade with lively shopping streets, cafes, and hotels. Strangely enough it has two main streets called Front Street and Back Street.

On Front Street, which is the main thoroughfare, duty-free shops line the road as far as the eye can see. These duty-free shops offer everything from Italian leather goods and Japanese cameras to native crafts. Don't be afraid to venture the alleyways that will lead you to arcades and courtyards filled with flowers.

The Courthouse is the most prominent landmark on Front Street. It is a grand white wooden structure topped with a cupola built in 1793. Front Street also includes the Simartin Museum so that visitors can get and excellent introduction to local St. Maartin history. There are also historical forts that are monuments to Philipsburg's strategic importance in St. Maarten's history.

Philipsburg has not been left behind in the time, however. It has combined its historical legacy with 20th century excitement. Since its waterfront has become a popular stop for cruise ships, the shore of this town is covered with restaurants, cafes and nightclubs that offer entertainment well into the night.

Day 7 : Antigua

8:00 AM - 7:00 PM

St. John's, Antigua is one of the oldest trading posts in the Caribbean Sea. It is a mixture of restored buildings that date back to the 1600s and some more modern buildings. One of the great things about St. John's is that most of the sights are within walking distance; so go explore the town as soon as you disembark. As you take a stroll along the streets lining the wharf, you will notice vendors hawking everything from clothing to local crafts, artwork, and jewelry. The Public Market is arrayed with an assortment of tropical fruits that you may not recognize. If you are up for a little bit adventure, sample something that appeals to you. Just make sure to ask if it needs any preparation first.

Day 8 : St. Kitts

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This fertile isle is a land of rain forests, tropical flowers, and abundant sugar cane. After a stroll around the charming colonial streets and shops of the capital, Basseterre, tour the island or visit Brimstone Hill Fort, an impressive construction that is one of the wonders of the Caribbean world.

Day 9 : San Juan

8:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The fortress of El Morro guards the harbor against long-gone Sir Francis Drake and his British privateers. The colorful streets of Old San Juan retain the Latin flavor of its seafaring past, when this was the heart of the Spanish Main. Sample the fiery rum made here, or indulge in an icy treat made from fresh tropical fruit and enjoy the Caribbean atmosphere.

Day 10 : At Sea

Day 11 : At Sea
