Cruise Code

Your luxurious yacht cruise begins in St. John's, where you'll be transferred to your Emerald Cruises luxury yacht and embark on your discovery of the Eastern Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands and St. Barths. (D)

Barbuda is part of a three-island state along with Antigua and the uninhabited island Redonda, located in the north-eastern Caribbean region. Barbuda is often described as Antigua's sister island. Barbuda's beaches, which are world-renowned, are miles long and are often sprinkled with pink sand. Barbuda is frequently referred to as one of the top destinations for independent travellers from all over the world, and today, it is yours to explore. (B/L/D)

Norman Island, a privately-owned island, is part of the British Virgin Islands. However, this island still attracts many tourists and sailors who come for snorkelling, diving, hiking, or simply soaking in some Caribbean sun. There are rumours about the island's piratical past, including its name coming from the famous pirate Norman. Norman Island's caves are a fun place to go diving and explore – and who knows, perhaps you will find your very own treasure chest. Norman Island is indeed an idyllic escape from real life and a must-add stop to your exploration of the Virgin Islands. (B/L/D)

Jost van Dyke (which is barely four miles long) is an island widely known by travellers around the world for its casual lifestyle and beachfront restaurants and bars, as well as its protected anchorages and pristine beaches. Great Harbour is one of the main sights to see on the island, as it is sheltered by small mountains and offers a truly relaxed Caribbean feel. The local drink, the Painkiller, was born here – a frozen delight made from dark rum, pineapple juice an orange juice, with fresh nutmeg ground on top. Today you will enjoy a barbeque on shore together with your fellow travellers. (B/L/D)

Virgin Gorda is the third largest and second-most populous of the British Virgin Islands. Columbus' lieutenants named the island Virgen Gorda – or ‘the pregnant virgin', as upon approaching the island from the north or the east, the outline of a pregnant woman lying on her back is visible on the horizon. 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)
