Pearls of the Caribbean
PONANT brings you a brand-new itinerary to the heart of the most enchanting islands in the Caribbean Sea. Board Le Champlain for an 8-day cruise combining long white-sand beaches and the easy Creole way of life.
An experienced diving instructor is on board for the entire cruise, enabling you to safely enjoy swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving.
From Fort-de-France, the capital of Martinique, Le Champlain will set sail to Les Saintes, a highly popular anchorage site with crystal-clear waters and fabulous seabed. You will then set sail to Bequia Island, the "whale-hunting island," and its wild and unspoiled coastline.
In the island of Grenada, visit its elegant capital, St. Georges, a particularly picturesque town dotted with pastel-coloured colonial houses nestled in a very pretty bay.
During your cruise, Le Champlain will lower her anchor in the Tobago Cays National Park. This rosary of islands bound together by the most beautiful coral reef in the West Indies, will reveal its incredible underwater wildlife and its secret coves.
You will then island hop gently towards Saint Lucia and its two majestic rocky peaks soaring straight from the sea, a unique location listed as UNESCO World Heritage site. You will finally reach Fort-de-France. Make sure to visit one of its renowned rum distilleries!
