Date Port Arrival Departure
Dec 6, Tuesday
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA (overnight) »   Embark pm
Sitting astride the great Mississippi River, rising ever so slightly from the first high ground above its mouth, the city of New Orleans commands the river-borne bounty of the vast North American interior. Both the Indian traders who originally occupied the area and the European explorers who came later quickly recognized its obvious commercial and strategic value. The invention of the cotton gin, the arrival of the steamboat and the rapid expansion of the United States combined to place New Orleans at the center of a regional economic boom.

Dec 14, Wednesday
Martinique/Fort-de-France, French West Indies » 7 am 10 pm
Martinique's well-deserved nickname is "Ile des Fleurs." The French name is so pleasing, but it was actually the native Arawak Indians who first knew the island for its lovely flowers. Here, towering mountains and verdant rainforests meet banana plantations and pineapple fields. At first sight, Christopher Columbus praised the island as the "best, most fertile and most charming land in the world." However, verdant mountains do not come without a price. The former capital, Saint Pierre, was destroyed by a violent eruption of the infamous Mount Pelée in 1902. Ironically, the only survivor was a prisoner who was being held in a subterranean jail cell. Ceded to France in 1815, Martinique has remained French under the status of an Overseas Department. A miniature part of France in the Caribbean, Martinique provides a plentitude of charm and ambiance as well as a high standard of living.
Dec 15, Thursday
Guadeloupe/Pointe-a-Pitre, West Indies » 8 am 7 pm
Guadeloupe, part of the Lesser Antilles, is about 200 miles north of its sister island of Martinique. Butterfly-shaped, Guadeloupe is actually two islands separated by a narrow seawater channel known as the Rivière Salée. To the east, in the Grand-Terre section, there are rolling hills, inviting beaches and flat expanses of sugar cane fields. To the west in Basse-Terre is a National Park, dense with rich vegetation and dominated by the dormant volcano, La Soufrière. French, Caribbean and African influences combine charmingly on this island. Although French is the official language, a charming Creole patois beckons your ear. Pointe-à-Pitre, the cultural capital, is reminiscent of a port on the French Riviera. Tall, modern architectural structures form a backdrop for the city's tree-shaded historic area centered around the Place de la Victoire, where there are many quaint wooden houses with open-air balconies that date back to the island's colonial days.
Dec 16, Friday
St. Barts/Gustavia, French West Indies » 8 am 11 pm
St. Barts forms part of the French Overseas Region of Guadeloupe. Descendants of settlers from Brittany and Normandy operate its tiny inns, shops and restaurants. This charming, slow-paced island attracts tourists year-round to its shores. The graceful meadows surrounded by low stone fences, spectacular beaches, the small volcanic mountains and the quaint Creole-style villages are just several of the alluring aspects of this tranquil island.

Dec 18, Sunday
Turks & Caicos/Grand Turk, UK » 8 am 5 pm
Although there are numerous spots on land that invite relaxation and exploration, the Turks and Caicos are really all about the water. More specifically, they're all about what's beneath the water. These islands have some of the best diving and snorkeling anywhere, courtesy of one of the world's largest network of coral reefs, easily accessible off the islands' shores. One reef, aptly called the Wall, is particularly spectacular; it drops 7,000 feet-straight down. Between the shore and the reef, the water is only waist deep, providing a perfect place for beginning snorkelers to get their feet wet.

Dec 20, Tuesday
Miami, Florida, USA » 8 am  

It has the largest city population in Florida, is the third most visited American city among international travelers and showcases an Art Deco Historic District encompassing one of the largest neighborhoods entered on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Miami certainly boasts its share of impressive characteristics, even before adding to the list its gorgeous beaches, spirited Cuban population and ritzy enclaves of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove.

Miami wasn't always the glamorous and energetic city you see today. Until the late 1800s, it was mostly swamp, disconnected from the rest of the country thanks to its position on the edge of the continent and lack of the essential link of the day: a railroad. All that changed in 1896, when the railroad in northern Florida was extended to the latent tropical paradise of the south.

The rest, as they say, is history, as Miami has since seen recurrent booms fueled by surges of immigration, perennially good weather and an insouciant refusal to do anything halfway. Admire the full glory of Miami Beach with a stroll along South Beach's famous Ocean Boulevard, where splendidly restored art deco buildings compete with fashion models and sun worshipers for attention. For a taste of Cuban cuisine and culture, visit Little Havana on the mainland (Miami Beach is separate both in its municipality and its geography: it sits on a barrier island four miles off the coast, and is reached by a causeway). Also outside mainland Miami are the acres of rare tropical plants nurtured to their fragrant and beautiful best in Fairchild Tropical Gardens. The aforementioned slice of heaven known as Coral Gables lies to the southwest. A gem of 1920s city planning, the city unfurls impressive boulevards and features the alluring Venetian Pool, where waterfalls and underwater caves offer the chance for a uniquely refreshing dip.
