PONANT invites you on a 13-day cruise to the heart of the West Indies. From Martinque, you will sail the idyllic waters of the Caribbean Sea to discover stunning islands, as well as historical and architectural landmarks.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, chosen with care by PONANT. During this cruise, enjoy embarking on a catamaran and snorkelling from Port Elizabeth on the island of Bequia, explore the town of Soufrière, between land and sea, on Saint Lucia, or appreciate the beauty of Saint Kitts during a sailing cruise and an underwater exploration with mask and snorkel. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

An experienced diving instructor is on board for the entire cruise, enabling you to safely enjoy swimming and scuba diving.

From Fort-de-France, the capital of Martinique, Le Bellot will set sail to the island of Antigua. The naval dockyard dating back to Georgian times, sheltered in the hollow of a bay protected from this island with craggy coastlines, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your ship will then set course for the famous island of Saint Barthélemy, renowned for its wild coves and its elegant little shopping streets.

You will then sail to St. Kitts, a volcanic island with fine sandy beaches and a rich colonial heritage.

In the British Virgin Islands, made up of around 60 mostly uninhabited islands, you will have the chance to enjoy the beaches of Jost van Dyke for a peaceful swimming break.

Further south, Le Bellot will sail towards the charming shores of Guadeloupe. You will discover the ravishing Baie des Saintes, a very popular spot for mooring, with crystal clear waters and fabulous seabeds. You will sail towards the enchanting setting offered by the island of Dominica - the Nature Island.

You will then island hop gently towards Saint Lucia and its two majestic rocky peaks soaring straight from the sea, a unique location listed as UNESCO World Heritage site.

Finally, fall under the spell of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines archipelago on Bequia, an island with wild and unspoiled shores. You will enjoy the lively atmosphere of Port Elizabeth, the island’s main town.
