Caribbean

On a small-ship eastern Caribbean cruise with Zegrahm Expeditions, guests are able to discover the enchanting lesser-visited isles of the region, stopping at charming ports the larger cruise ships can’t access. Idyllic Caribbean islands come to life as we join naturalists of hikes through the forest to spot colorful endemic bird species, stroll through peaceful plazas lined with graceful colonial architecture and snorkel and dive over rainbow-hued tropical fish and coral reefs. Our eastern Caribbean cruise guests enjoy the romantic majesty of Le Ponant, our three-masted sailing vessel with ample public space for mingling, all-ocean-view staterooms with en suite bathrooms and a fleet of Zodiacs for easy Caribbean exploration. Settle in with a good book in the reading nook, indulge in fine cuisine in the dining room and get ready for the sunny days and starry nights of this alluring region.
