Cruise Code


Begin and end your 8 day (7 night) cruise in San Juan onboard the Emerald Sakara and enjoy exclusive savings and cruise inclusions with Emerald Cruises and Global Journeys.


Your luxurious yacht cruise begins in San Juan, where you’ll be transferred to your Emerald Cruises luxury yacht and embark on your discovery of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and St. Barths. (D)

Culebra is widely known for its white-sand beaches and active reef and is one of the major islands in Puerto Rico’s archipelago. This island offers plenty for nature lovers, giving you peace and tranquillity in a truly pristine destination. There are more than 20 cays bustling with diverse marine life, making it an absolute paradise for underwater adventurers and casual beachgoers alike. (B/L/D)

The quaint coastal town of Esperanza has a lovely waterfront with gorgeous beaches and a bustling strip of restaurants, bars, and guesthouses. One can walk along the boulevard and visit the various establishments for a glimpse into the local culture and activities on offer. Locals enjoy spending the afternoon at Sun Bay, the main urban beach located in the town’s eastern outskirts. (B/L/D)

Virgin Gorda is the third largest and second-most populous of the British Virgin Islands. Somehow uncrowded, Gorda Sound itself has recently blossomed into a busy place surrounded with resorts and vacation villas. Virgin Gorda is a beautiful island; an ideal jumping off point for an in-depth discovery of the Virgin Islands. (B/L/D)

Named for Sweden’s King Gustav III, Gustavia is the charming capital and main seaport of the island of Saint Barthélemy, also known as St. Barth. It is often considered to be one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and a tropical paradise with French flair. You will enjoy the beauty of its large idyllic beaches, plus the charm and refinement of its old wooden houses. (B/L/D)

Marigot is a lovely town and the administrative centre of French Saint Martin. Both French and Caribbean culture can be seen throughout the island, creating that unique blend of French Caribbean. Some of the most spectacular sights include the castle of Fort Louis overlooking the town and reminding locals and visitors alike of its significant past. The open-air market is open every day for those seeking to discover the island’s local vibe and flavours. Artisans here sell anything from fresh fruits and spices to artwork and even rum. The market is a delight to the senses, and while you are there, don’t forget to try Mauby, a local beverage flavoured with bark which tastes like root beer. (B/L/D)

Jost Van Dyke is the smallest of all four main islands comprising the British Virgin Islands, approximately eight square kilometres. Known as ‘The Last Virgin Island’, White Bay Beach on Jost Van Dyke is made up of rather rocky scenery combined with colourful local culture. The bay is by far one of the best beaches to relax on, with plenty of room for visitors to lay down and enjoy splendid Caribbean views. Today, you will enjoy a barbeque on shore together with your fellow travellers. (B/L/D)

Your time aboard your Emerald Cruises luxury yacht comes to an end in San Juan. After bidding farewell to the crew and guests, you will be transferred to the airport for your return flight home. The itinerary is a guide only and may be amended for operational reasons. As such Emerald Cruises cannot guarantee the cruise will operated unaltered from the itinerary states above. (B)
