SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6

FLY TO SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

Fly to San Juan and enjoy the day at your leisure before your cruise begins the next day. Optional Pre-Night hotel arrangements available at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan.

 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

Enjoy time in San Juan prior to boarding the Norwegian Epic this evening. Founded in 1521, San Juan's picturesque cobblestone streets, plazas and chapels reflect its Spanish heritage. But the second oldest city in the Americas also boasts fine beaches, lush rainforests, verdant mountainsides, imposing forts and a lovely tropical climate. (D)

 

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8

BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS

Today we will enjoy a full day in St. Kitts before sailing through the night. Although founded by the French in 1627, St. Kitts is a very British paradise where cricket and tea are the norm. The dramatic mixed island landscape is rimmed in gold-sand beaches and dotted with well-preserved plantations left over from when the island was covered with sugar cane. (B, L, D)

 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9

CASTRIES, ST. LUCIA

A mecca for outdoor enthusiasts with thriving coral reefs and rain forest preserves. Explore the world's only drive-in volcanic crater at Sulfur Springs or perhaps visit the Diamond Botanical Gardens and Falls and the Morne Coubaril Estate. (B, L, D)

 

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10

KRALENDIJK, BONAIRE

Speak Papiamentu? That's OK. English and Dutch are also used in Kralendijk, the capital of Bonaire, an island nestled in the Caribbean Netherlands. This spot offers an abundance of water activities from coral reef diving to kayaking, catamaran sailing and 4X4 safari adventures. (B, L, D)

 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11

AT SEA

Enjoy a relaxing day at sea. Perhaps you’ll check out the bowling alley onboard (additional charges apply) or for a show in the Epic Theatre or Comedy Club. For a relaxing afternoon, visit the Mandara Spa & Salon for a hot stone massage or a rejuvenating facial. (B, L, D)

 

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12

ORANJESTAD, ARUBA

Incredibly white sands and cobalt blue seas make the small island of Aruba a popular destination. In the bustling freeport town of Oranjestad, sherbet-coloured Dutch colonial buildings, draped in bougainvillea, oleander and hibiscus are simply picturesque. Small, but informative museums relate the island's history. (B, L, D)

 

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13

AT SEA

Enjoy a final day at sea where you can relax after a week of excitement in ports throughout the Caribbean! (B, L, D)

 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

Disembark the Norwegian Epic and begin your return flight home after a fantastic trip in the Caribbean with fellow Hawkeye fans. (B)
