Embark Royal Clipper in St John's.
Day 2 - Terre de Haut (Iles des Saintes)
Iles de Saintes consists of eight tiny islands. Only two are populated and Terre-de-Haut has a leisurely, French atmosphere. This charming island is only three miles long and the small village of Bourg has brightly painted houses. For swimming and snorkelling, Pain de Sucre is a favourite spot.
Day 3 - Cabrits (Dominica)

Martinique is a beautiful island with a French flavour and strong Creole traditions. Spend the day relaxing on one of the stunning beaches.
Day 5 - St George's (Grenada)
The 'Spice Island' of Grenada has a mountainous interior, dominated by Mount St Catherine, and tumbling waterfalls. Cinnamon, cloves and ginger grow here, and the shore is a winding series of white and black sand beaches edged with rich vegetation. Perhaps walk to Annandale Falls outside St George's, and for shopping, make for Grand Anse.
Day 6 - Tobago Cays (Grenadines)
The idyllic Tobago Cays are five small uninhabited islands and a lagoon protected from sea swells by Horseshoe Reef. Enjoy a day exploring, relaxing and beachcombing.
Day 7 - Marigot Bay (St Lucia) - Soufriere
St Lucia is well-known for the Piton twin-peaks, its rainforest and the indigenous St Lucia parrot. The verdant landscape gives way to banana, coconut and mango plantations.
