Ports visited*

* The order of the itinerary may differ depending on your chosen departure date and airport.
Day 1 – Bridgetown, Barbados

Departs: 20:00

With your ship departing at 8pm, you have plenty of opportunity to explore Bridgetown, if your flight arrives early. The port is just 30 minutes away by car and your transfers are conveniently included.

It’s not just about beaches in Bridgetown, there are lots of things to see and do. Sightseeing highlights include Independence Square and the 18th-century garrison. If time allows, visit the sprawling gardens of Orchid World or get up close to tropical fish and sea turtles with the Atlantis Submarine underwater experience.

Day 2 – At sea

Day two of the Caribbean Dreams itinerary is spent at sea, giving you the chance to dive into what Marella Celebration has to offer. Its smaller size means you can enjoy a warm atmosphere and make new friends. There are five restaurants in total, as well as six bars and two pools. There’s even a casino, gym and a variety of shops.

Evening entertainment caters for all tastes and interests. The Broadway Show Lounge puts on big West End-style productions, while Liberties Lounge is the place to go for live music and karaoke.

Day 3 – Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Time in port: 08:00-18:00

St. Maarten is unusual in that it holds both French and Dutch rule. Its Dutch capital city, Philipsburg is less than a 10-minute drive away from the port and is a great place for families with little ones. The Boardwalk runs the whole length of the city’s Great Bay waterfront from the port and is dotted with beach bars to grab snacks from. There’s also an arcade and a beachfront playground.

Everyone will love the Butterfly Farm, should you have time to make the 20-minute journey there. Philipsburg is also a place for indulging in some serious retail therapy. Front Street is the main shopping destination, with its mix of chain and designer shops.

Day 4 – Spanish Town, British Virgin Islands

Time in port: 08:00-18:00

Spanish Town is one of the most laidback destinations on the Caribbean Dreams itinerary. You’ll dock in a harbour that’s home to several shops and restaurants, with even more just a 10-minute walk away in the city centre.

The Baths is a popular, idyllic spot to visit and it’s just a 10-minute drive away. This area of beach features a collection of enormous boulders that hide magical pools and grottoes around and under their edges. It’s definitely a site to tick off your list if you have the time to spend a few hours marvelling at its natural beauty.

Day 5 – Basseterre, St. Kitts

Time in port: 08:00-18:00

Caribbean cruises wouldn’t be the dream that they are without a beach or two, and St. Kitts spoils its visitors with numerous sandy stretches.

It’s also home to many historical sites, including the National Museum and Independence Square. The most imposing attraction is 17th-century Brimstone Hill Fortress, which sits high above the sea and is made up of turrets and walls. It’s around a 30-minute drive from the port.

Day 6 – Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe

Time in port: 08:00-17:00

A heady fusion of French and African influences, Pointe-à-Pitre is famous for its fish markets and lively harbour. Other attractions include Place de la Victoire, the main park plaza lined with colonial buildings and cafés.

The city is small, friendly and easy to walk around. This makes it a great place for families with young children, as well as solo travellers looking to make new friends. Make sure you visit the Saint John Perse Museum and the ‘Iron Cathedral’ on your sightseeing trip. The Aquarium of Guadeloupe is also a fun place to take the children.

If you have enough time, head to the island of Basse-Terre and Guadeloupe National Park, which is about 30 minutes away from the city. There’s over 300 km worth of hiking trails and all kinds of flora and fauna within the park’s lush, mountainous landscapes.

Day 7 – Kingstown, St. Vincent

Time in port: 08:00-18:00

Kingstown is the island of St. Vincent’s largest city, and is just a few minutes’ walk from the port. The island feels like a true paradise, with quiet beaches and wild forests that stretch for miles. One of the must-sees in Kingstown is Fort Charlotte, which was a British garrison during the 19th-century. Nowadays, you can see paintings that tell the stories of slavery in the area and the overall history of the island.

Also worth a visit are the Botanical Gardens, which are located on the outskirts of Kingstown. They’re the oldest of their kind in the western hemisphere and are a peaceful place to spot a variety of animals. These include the island’s national bird, the St. Vincent parrot.

Day 8 – Bridgetown, Barbados

Arrives: 07:00

The Caribbean Dreams journey comes full circle, as you arrive back into Bridgetown on the eighth day. You’re guaranteed to return with unforgettable memories, and an unquenchable thirst to enjoy another tropical adventure as soon as possible!
