Caribbean Christmas Cruise
How about exploring glorious Caribbean islands on a Caribbean Cruise as an alternative Christmas this year, you can spend 14 nights aboard the Artemis and you will visit not only 8 amazing Caribbean islands, but Panama and Colombia as well, instead of rushing around Christmas shopping you can explore beautiful white sandy beaches, stunning coastline and tropical reefs, there are also plenty of things to do on the child free Artemis to relax, why not treat yourself to a spa treatment or have some fun in the casino. There is nothing better than enjoying some winter sunshine when the weather is grey and murky, not to mention you won’t have to worry about cooking Christmas dinner for the whole family.
On the Artemis you will travel from Barbados to some of the most exquisite Caribbean islands, St. Lucia, Tobago and Grenada, as well as Isle Margarita and Curacao, Dutch Antilles. You will be able to spend a day in each place, to experience the characters and traditions of each island from their bustling markets and energetic locals to historical sites and unbelievable natural beauty, before relaxing each night on board the Artemis.
Before Christmas day you arrive for a full day and evening in Colon, Panama where you can make your way into the rain forest to meet the Choco Indians or follow the adventures of Captain Morgan at San Lorenzo Fort. As you travel down the Panama Canal you will be able to experience the 6 gigantic locks that move you along this historical canal where you can observe some truly magnificent scenery. On Christmas Eve you will arrive in Cartagena the oldest walled city in the Americas which is steeped in history. Christmas Day you will spend at sea however you will still experience all the usual traditions and celebrations as well as enjoy a mouth-watering six-course silver service Christmas dinner.
On Boxing Day you will return to Barbados to travel back to the UK feeling a lot more refreshed and rejuvenated than you normally do after Christmas.
