Join us, February 20-27, 2021!


CRUISE DETAILS
Journeys that Fit invites you to join us for a fun-filled 7-days in the Caribbean at the perfect time of year - February 20-27, 2021.  The weather will be in the 80's, the Spring Break crowds will still be Statesside and most importantly, the nasty Summer storm season won't have started yet.  Cruise the Caribbean on the 4-masted Star Flyer, an amazing clipper ship that has to be experienced to be believed.  Star Flyer welcomes 170 guests on board and has 2 pools, 3 bars, amazing gourmet meals and water toys for everyone to use while at anchor.  The fantastic staff and crew create an atmosphere of luxury and personal service but with a relaxed Caribbean vibe. Just heavenly!

'LEEWARD ISLANDS' ITINERARY INFORMATION
The cruise itinerary will have you embarking the ship in St. Maarten mid-afternoon on February 20th, so flights would need to leave the United States by February 19th.   On the return, you'll disembark in the morning in time to catch late morning or mid-day return flights on the 27th.   However, you may love to spend additional time in the Islands before or after the cruise, and Journeys That Fit can help you find the perfect spot to enjoy a few days on land, as well as setting up your flights to and from St. Maarten.

Here is an overview of this fantastic Caribbean cruise itinerary: 
  • Feb 20 (Philipsburg, St. Maarten):  Enjoy the beaches or some shopping on the Dutch side of this beautiful island and then board the Star Flyer mid-afternoon.
  • Feb 21 (Charlestown, Nevis): Take in the perilously steep cliffs of Mt. Scenery, check out the old sugar plantations or take advantage of the great snorkeling and diving on this tiny paradise.
  • Feb 22  (South of Iles des Santes): We meet up with the 5-masted Royal Clipper for a sailboat race just South of Iles des Santes!  Next we head on to...
  • Feb 22 (Cabrits, Dominica): Delight in this dream-like island.  Take a boat ride through an orchid-laden rain forest, hike to breathtaking Trafalgar Falls or just relax and enjoy the laid-back vibe.
  • Feb 23 (Terre-de-Haut, Iles des Saintes): Fantastic beaches, snorkeling, diving and a lovely lunch onshore prepared by our fabulous crew.
  • Feb 24  (Deshaies, Guadeloupe): Relax and enjoy the Caribbean charm in Guadaloupe or take a trek to La Soufriere to see the river of boiling water gushing from the top of this not-quite-dormant volcano.
  • Feb 25 (Falmouth Harbour, Antigua): The epicenter of the yachting world has plenty of beaches, pubs and convivial crowds to slip into that Jimmy Buffet, It's 5 O'clock Somewhere state of mind.
  • Feb 26 (Gustavia, St. Barts): Enjoy amazing shopping, beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and of course people watching on this elegant French/Swiss island.
  • Feb 27 (Philipsburg, St. Maarten): Sadly, our journey has come to an end, and it's time to disembark.  Of course, stretching out your Caribbean stay is always an option on St. Maarten or any of the surrounding islands.
