Forthcoming Trips: March 2007 P&O Arcadia Barbados – Southampton UK
The P&O Site describes the cruise as:
“Arcadia’s homecoming Caribbean cruise and transatlantic crossing from Barbados to Southampton takes you first to the beautiful St George’s Harbour on the fragrant island of Grenada, which has more spices growing per square mile than anywhere else on earth.
Scenic St Lucia is home to the world’s only drive-in volcano (Soufrière) and to another pretty harbour (Marigot Bay) while lush rainforests, sugar-white beaches and historic sites like the towering Brimstone Hill Fortress create an equally magical mix on St Kitts. Say farewell to the Caribbean in Antigua where, if you plan to spend the day at the beach, you will be spoilt for choice as there are 366 of them – enough for every day of a leap year.
Then be prepared for one of the great travel experiences – a transatlantic crossing. Your journey ends in Southampton but Arcadia does make one welcome pause along the way: at the stylish Garden Island of Madeira. Here you can take tea at the gloriously colonial Reids’ Hotel or try a thrilling wicker sled ride down steep cobbled tracks to the delightful capital, Funchal – another unforgettable experience, just like the whole cruise.”
