Alternative activities range from jungle zip-line courses to squelchy soaks in geothermal mud baths, which detoxify the skin and soothe sore joints.
Contrasts of the Caribbean
Be it beach-lined Bequia, the Îles des Saintes’s French flair or the rivers, waterfalls and pools of Dominica, each charismatic Caribbean stop offers something distinct.

Putting Barbados’s flamboyant capital Bridgetown in our wake, Golden Horizon spends a day sailing northwest to Guadeloupe – one of France’s overseas regions – and its languid, little-explored Îles des Saintes archipelago. Jacques Cousteau came here once, lured by impressive coral gardens. Whether shading under coconut palms by bone-white shores, snapping the jaw-dropping views from ruined Fort Napoleon or trying French-Caribbean fusion at waterside bistros, you’ll feel worlds away from everyday life.
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 Roseau, you could ascend Morne Bruce for incredible views or bathe atop balmy, bubbling volcanic vents at Champagne Beach.
Over in Saint Lucia, you may understandably get no further than Rodney Bay’s own Reduit Beach, a mile of powdery golden sand. Before our return to Bridgetown, the Grenadines’ paradise island of Bequia (“beck-way”) follows another full day at sea. Expect more brochure-cover coves between British-built fortifications, plus several scenic walks, some charming local fruit markets (don’t miss tasting the incredible mangoes) and keep watch for visiting celebrities.
