The Colorful Caribbean: New York, USA to Miami, USA

MS Europa 2 Voyage 1437 - December 6-20, 2014

From the bustling city of New York to the dream destinations in the Caribbean: go shopping in the sophisticated coastal town of Gustavia with its white yachts and red-gabled houses. The Barbuda sunset bathes the beach in pink light and Marigot Bay on St Lucia beckons with its lush green plant world. “Little Amsterdam” on Curacao – Willemstad – has a historic harbour front and colourful facades, inviting you to take a tour in its small streets. Enjoy sun, sea and sand and explore lively places brimming with joie de vivre before bidding farewell to the EUROPA 2 in Miami.

The highlights of this cruise:

  • Pure Caribbean: dream beaches for bathing and snorkelling.
  • Antigua: kayak trip around the mangroves*.
  • Pink Beach: the flagship beach of Barbuda.
  • On board: on Broadway – atmospheric musical highlights.

*These arrangements are not covered by the cruise price. The on-shore activities listed are in the planning stage. Subject to changes.

Day 1 - New York/USA, departure at 9:00 am
Your cruise to Caribbean paradise starts in the bustling city of New York.
Day 2 - 4 - Relaxation at sea
Day 5 - Gustavia/Saint-Barthelemy/Leeward Islands/France - 3:00 pm - Midnight
The first port of call after three relaxing days at sea is Gustavia , where you can follow Scandinavian footsteps. This sophisticated coastal town owes both its name and its red-gabled houses to Swedish settlers. Beautiful shops in former warehouses cry out for you to go shopping before reaching colourful Antigua.
Day 6 - St John’s/Antigua/Antigua and Barbuda, 7:00 am – 1:00 pm
Pink Beach/Barbuda/Antigua and Barbuda - 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Explore the capital city of St John’s on an island trip, which will give you insights into the past. Even today, the lookout known as Shirley Heights and Nelson’s Dockyard are reminiscent of the British colonial era. Enjoy the natural beauty of the island on a kayak trip around the mangroves* whilst a catamaran trip* to white sandy bays promises a purely Caribbean feeling. Experience an unforgettable show of nature when the afternoon sun bathes Pink Beach in bright colours.
Day 7 - Terre-de-Haut/Guadeloupe/Iles des Saintes/Lesser Antilles - 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
You can also experience Caribbean impressions on Terre-de-Haut. This UNESCO World Heritage Site excites with dreamlike holiday views: lonely bays with turquoise-blue water, charming restaurants and a majestic panoramic view from Fort Napoleon.
Day 8 - Marigot Bay/St Lucia/West Indies - 7:00 am to 5:00 pm
Island cruise along the Pitons/St Lucia - 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The “last tropical paradise of the West Indies” is just as appealing. Take a tour* and experience the volcanic cone, steaming sulphur springs and green coastlines of Marigot Bay on St Lucia. Alternatively, take a cable car ride and glide above the canopy of the rainforest*, and enjoy unforgettable views of the lush plant world. St Lucia is even more spectacular from a bird’s-eye perspective*, which you will get on a flight over the inner parts of this tropical island.
Day 9 - Mayreau/St Vincent and the Grenadines - 8:00 am - 11:00 pm
On Mayreau, marvel at gentle hills and still lagoons shimmering in endless shades of blue, where you can enjoy hours of relaxation on the peaceful beaches.
Day 10 - Relaxation at sea
Day 11 - Willemstad/Curacao/Netherlands Antilles/Netherlands, 7:00 am – 5:00 pm 
Spending another day at sea under the Caribbean sun, the EUROPA 2 will set sail for Willemstad, the capital of Curacao. The colourful facades are visible even from the historic harbour front, and will tempt you to take a city tour* through the winding streets. The Punda and Otrobanda quarters are connected by the floating Queen Emma Bridge. Take it to Fort Amsterdam and, on the way, try some of the exotic delicacies on offer at the floating market. The hinterlands are also diverse. Take an island tour* and marvel at the impressive cave Boca Tabla in Shete Boka National Park and, with a little luck, observe the flamingos on the Jan Kok salt pans. Alternatively, go snorkelling in the colourful marine world while out on a boat trip*.
Day 12 - Relaxation at sea
Day 13 - Northwest Point Beach/Great Inagua/Bahamas - 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
The picturesque concluding backdrop to your cruise will be Northwest Point Beach on Great Inagua. Visitors to this water-bird and freshwater-tortoise haven are rare.
Day 14 - Relaxation at sea
Day 15 - Miami/Florida/USA
Enjoy sun, sea and sand one more time before your time on board comes to an end in Miami.
