Cruise the Eastern Caribbean with Palmer
March 3-10, 2018
Your Eastern Caribbean adventure begins on a Holland America Cruise Ship departing from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Ports of call include:
> Key West: Florida’s irreverent southernmost subtropical paradise, Key West is a unique confluence of history, climate, natural beauty, cultural diversity, architecture and unabashed romantic appeal. Here, you can visit a host of historic attractions by convenient public transportation, taxis, pedi-cabs, tour trains, trolleys, bicycles or walking.
> Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos: The diving and snorkelling and water sports here is exquisite. Or, visit all of the main sights, including the Turks and Caicos National Museum, the Grand Turk Lighthouse, the Salt House, and a number of Grand Turk Beaches.
> Amber Cove, Dominican Republic: Visit a chocolate factory founded by Dominican women, enjoy a dolphin encounter or relax in a grand cabana over the ocean. Amber Cove is a throwback — it’s the kind of quiet little spot you won’t find on most maps. But you will find it brimming with bars and pools, with opportunities for lounging, shopping, or sailing. Beyond Amber Cove is Puerto Plata, a town that began life as the first European settlement in the Americas, discovered by Christopher Columbus.
>Half Moon Cay, Bahamas: Holland America Line’s pristine private island offers everything you need to play in paradise, including a two-mile crescent of perfect beach and family-friendly water sports. One unique shore excursion is the Horseback Riding by Land & Sea, which includes a ride along winding trails on the sea edge to the highest point of the island, followed by a horseback swim in the ocean on your return trip.
