Leaving behind Barbados’s buzzy, culture-filled capital Bridgetown, we begin our Caribbean circular by plotting a course to French-flavoured Martinique. Arriving beside Anse Mitan’s shallow-watered beach, where boules games are common, you can relax in the sunshine or head off towards rainforest walks before we see in the new year with special onboard celebrations.

After a day spent at sea, our itinerary now takes us to Antigua’s southern harbour town, Falmouth. Cove-hopping catamaran trips and mangrove-paddling kayak adventures are popular around here, as are rum-tinged food tours. South Friar’s Bay, on St Kitts’ sheltered southwestern coast, is Golden Horizon’s next port of call. We’ll dock at the upmarket Carambola Beach resort, with languid lunches and lazy swims very much the order of the day. 

St Barts, another of France’s overseas departments, follows. Having arrived in the gorgeous port capital of Gustavia – known for super-yachts, stylish boutiques and chichi restaurants serving Gallic cuisine – we’ll discover why this volcanic enclave ranks among the region’s A-list destinations. Pristine shores and abundant reefs help to explain. A last day at sea will take us back to Bridgetown. If you didn’t do so first-time round, visit the world’s oldest rum distillery, Mount Gay, and take a stroll around the World Heritage-listed old town.
