Putting Barbados’s flamboyant capital Bridgetown in our wake, Golden Horizon sails west to St Vincent & The Grenadines’ paradise island of Bequia (“beck-way”). Expect more brochure-cover coves between British-built fortifications, plus scenic walks, some charming local fruit markets (don’t miss tasting the incredible mangoes) and keep watch for visiting celebrities.

Christmas Day will be spent at sea, with a celebratory dinner, special entertainment and a joyous day on the ocean waves. We will then arrive in Guadeloupe – one of France’s overseas regions – at its languid, little-explored Îles des Saintes archipelago. Shade under coconut palms by bone-white shores, snap the jaw-dropping views from ruined Fort Napoleon and try French-Caribbean fusion at waterside bistros.

Dominica, next up, pairs tremendous scenery – boiling lakes, jungly volcanoes and 365 waterfalls – with a happy aversion to over-development. From the reggae-loving capital of Roseau, you could ascend Morne Bruce for incredible island views or bathe atop balmy, bubbling volcanic vents at Champagne Beach. Over in St Lucia, you might not get further than Rodney Bay’s own Reduit Beach, a mile of powdery golden sand. Alternative activities range from jungle zip-line courses to soaks in geothermal, detoxifying mud baths, which supposedly cleanse the skin and soothe sore joints. Wash off in one last waterfall before our return to Bridgetown. 

Christmas Day will be spent at sea, with a celebratory dinner, special entertainment and a joyous day on the ocean waves.
