Pre Cruise Day 1-2 UK/Barbados
Arrive in Barbados, the most British of the islands where cricket is still played with a passion and cars drive on the left. Relax on the pretty beaches of the West Coast or take a tour to the hilly Scotland area in the north of the island where you will see stone-built English-style churches sitting amid the bright tropical blooms of hibiscus. Barbados is one of the most sophisticated Caribbean islands, boasting some of the best hotels and a string of swish restaurants, making it ideal for a pre-cruise stay.

Day 3 Barbados /Embarkation
Today a member of the team will transfer you to the port to embark Seabourn Odyssey, your home for the next week.
Seabourn Odyssey | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 Saline Bay, Mayreau, St. Vincent and the Grenadines
First stop is one of the idyllic Grenadine islands which stretch from St Vincent in the north to Grenada in the south. Mayreau is said to be the smallest inhabited island in the chain, close to the Tobago Cays where Seabourn Odyssey sometimes anchors and lowers its water sports marina for a day of fun-filled splashing around.
Seabourn Odyssey | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 Roseau, Dominica
Known as the Caribbean’s ‘nature isle’ due to its lush rainforested terrain and unspoilt landscape, Dominica is full of natural wonders. Walkers and hikers who venture into the mountainous interior will find thermal springs, waterfalls and the island’s famous ‘boiling lake’ set in a volcanic crater. The island is one of the few where indigenous tribes, descended from the original Carib Indians, reside. The waters around Dominica are rich in whale and dolphin-spotting opportunities, while other attractions include the peaceful Botanical Gardens and the capital Roseau, where shoppers can buy prized local rums made on the island.
Seabourn Odyssey | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 Deshaies, Guadeloupe
There’s no mistaking that you’ve arrived in the French Caribbean when you soak up the Gallic West Indian feel of Guadeloupe. As well as a strong cultural flavour, this butterfly-shaped isle has scenic beauty too with rainforests, waterfalls and the La Soufriere volcano. The sleepy village of Deshaies brings a taste of old Caribbean charm, with its single main street of shops and stall-holders selling tropical fish, fruits and ice-creams. The best beach for swimming and chilling is the wide expanse of golden sands at Grande Anse, a short walk away.
Seabourn Odyssey | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 Gustavia, Saint Barthelemy
Step ashore on St Barthelemy, or St Barts for short, and you’ll savour France with a tropical twist, spiced up with exclusive designer shops, swish hotels and swanky restaurants. No wonder it such a magnet for the glitterati. This tiny isle is volcanic and lush with deep valleys and beaches of fine powdery sand. Ruled by France – apart from when it was ceded to Sweden rule for nearly a century (hence the name of its capital, Gustavia), many of St Barts’ inhabitants are descendants of settlers from Brittany, Normandy and Sweden and the buildings reflect Swedish colonial and French Creole architecture.
Seabourn Odyssey | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis
The sister islands of St Kitts and Nevis may share the similar lush tropical landscapes dotted with abandoned sugar mills and small romantic plantation house hotels, but there are key differences between them. St Kitts is the bigger and busier of the two with more shops and bars in its capital Basseterre. Top attractions include its scenic railway and the Unesco World Heritage Brimstone Hill Fortress. Nevis is more undiscovered and sleepy, known for its empty beaches and historic capital Charlestown.
Seabourn Odyssey | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9 Great Harbour, Jost van Dyke, British Virgin Islands
This collection of approximately 60 isles is one of the ultimate romantic castaway retreats and makes up one of the most beautiful areas of the Caribbean. Many are uninhabited, though the main islands are Tortola and Virgin Gorda which have lush mountainous terrain and dazzling white sand beaches. Named after an early Dutch settler and former pirate, Jost Van Dyke has less than 300 residents. Weather permitting, Seabourn Odyssey will anchor here and deploy the onboard marina for a day of water sports.
Seabourn Odyssey | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10 Philipsburg, Sint Maarten / Disembarkation / Antigua
On your final morning, arrive at Sint Maarten before hopping across to Antigua. Sint Maarten/St Martin is an island of two parts with a French and a Dutch section, both of which have their own distinct identities. The Dutch side of Sint Maarten is the more developed with duty-free shops, cafes and casinos, along with the larger port at the capital Philipsburg. The airport is also on the Dutch side and this is where you will be taken for your flight after disembarking.
Carlisle Bay | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 11-12 Antigua
Famous for its beaches, along with sister island Barbuda, Antigua boasts that it has 365 of them, though this could contain a degree of poetic licence. But Antigua also has a rich Naval maritime history, seen today in Nelson’s Dockyard, the world’s only working Georgian dockyard and the place where young Horatio was based. Today Antigua rates as one of the world’s top sailing spots, while the appealing capital, St John’s, is a popular cruise stop with shopping at the Heritage Quay and Redcliffe Quay retail areas on the restored waterfront.

Day 13 – Antigua / UK
Spend those last few hours picking up souvenirs before a member of the A&K team transfers you to the airport for your flight home.
