What's Included

Experience a fairytale Christmas with PONANT in the heart of the Caribbean.

PONANT invites you on a 13-day cruise to the heart of the West Indies. From Fort-de-France, you will sail the idyllic waters of the Caribbean Sea to discover stunning islands, as well as historical and architectural landmarks.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. During this cruise, enjoy embarking on a catamaran and snorkelling from Port Elizabeth on the island of Bequia, explore the town of Soufrière, between land and sea, on Saint Lucia, or appreciate the beauty of Saint Kitts during a sailing cruise and an underwater exploration with mask and snorkel. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

An experienced diving instructor is on board for the entire cruise, enabling you to safely enjoy swimming and scuba diving.

First of all, you will venture to Antigua, whose blend of British influences and Creole culture gives its picture postcard scenery a unique atmosphere.

In the British Virgin Islands, made up of some 60 islands, most of which are uninhabited, you will have the chance to enjoy the beaches of Jost van Dyke for a peaceful swimming break.

Le Champlain will set sail further north to Saint Barthélemy, famous for its wild coves and its elegant little shopping streets.

You will cruise on to the enchanting island of Dominica, known as the Nature Island, before you reach Saint Lucia and its two majestic rocky peaks soaring straight from the sea. This unique location is listed as UNESCO World Heritage site.

Then, you will head south to the archipelago of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The most beautiful coral reef in the West Indies connects this chain of islands and reveals incredible underwater fauna and secret coves.

Then you will return to Fort-de-France after a magnificent cruise.
