Journey Highlights






Magical Soufriere

Explore the panoramic west coast of the island as you visit some of the most scenic areas and relive life as it was in bygone days. Drive through charming villages along the island’s west coast and the rich island vegetation to the magical town of Soufriere. Visit the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano with its bubbling Sulphur Springs. See the majestic pitons as they rise sheer out of the sea. Visit the island’s only working plantation with interesting practices of bygone days, all within a traditional village setting.

Spice Isle’s Lasting Memories

Begin with a visit to two of the island’s most important fortresses. Fort George, is located at the heart of the capital, standing majestically atop a volcanic spine at a staggering height of 175 feet above the city’s harbour. Built in the early 1700s, this old fort stood for centuries as St. George’s silent guardian. After fairing wars and revolutions alike, the fort’s original structure endures as one of the finest remaining examples of Vauban-style masonry in the world. Fort Frederick, the younger of the two, stands overlooking the harbour and the Caribbean Sea. Built by the French in 1779, this imposing fortress was still in use by Grenada’s armed forces in 1983 when it was targeted for bombardment by US forces during their invasion of the island that year. Fortune had it and they missed, preserving this monumental fort and the spectacular views. Our tour continues to the Grenada National Museum; step back in time with a sampling of the true heritage and culture of Grenada. Our final stop will be at the Westerhall Rum Distillery for a look into the island’s rum production and an opportunity to sample some of the finest delicious aged rum brewed here!

Scenes of St. Vincent

Embark on a journey to the beautiful and scenic coast of this lovely isle. Begin at Fort Charlotte which was built by the British in the colonial days and sits atop Berkshire Hill. Enjoy a panoramic view of Kingstown and the stunning Grenadine Islands lying peacefully in the ocean. The scenic ride continues around the bustling capital city, often referred to by many as “The City of Arches.” Take the opportunity to admire the three most dominant churches built in the 18th century, with the Roman Catholic being the most unique. It has several styles of architecture, built in stages, and reflects the many additions it has undergone. The Methodist Church and St. George’s Anglican Cathedral were both built by slaves and recently renovated. Sit back and relax as you enjoy the historical yet interesting stories of the Windward side of the country from your humorous and informative tour guide. Travelling further in the country, listen to the thunderous surf surrounded by mountains, dotted with beautiful houses perched on their sides. Enjoy a refreshing chilled drink, before returning to the Royal Clipper.

Martinique South Island Tour

Today we discover Martinique, with its impressive nature, beaches and diversity of flavors! Enjoy a scenic drive along the Caribbean Coastal Road, with a stop at Carbet Beach with its calm sea, transparent waters, and black sand. Then, venture off to the small coastal town of Saint Pierre, the “Little Paris of the Antilles”. Once destroyed by the island’s volcano, Mount Pelee, the town was partially rebuilt on the ruins. Take some pictures and admire the scenery of this majestic mountain. Visit the Sacred Heart Church, also known as Balata Church, an historical building resting in dense tropical foliage. Built in 1924 and dedicated to those who died in World War I, this iconic landmark is a scaled-down replica of the Sacre Coeur de Montmartre in Paris, France. Finally, enjoy a relaxing and scenic coach ride back to our ship.
