The Essential of the Caribbean on Le Dumont d'Urville

Le Dumont d'Urville Exterior

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

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

First of all, you will venture to Antigua, whose blend of British influences and Creole culture gives its picture postcard scenery a unique atmosphere.

Your ship will then call at Saint Martin, a small cosmopolitan island that is half French, half Dutch.

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

You will cruise on to the enchanting island of Dominica, known as the Nature Island, before you reach Saint Lucia and its two majestic rocky peaks soaring straight from the sea. This unique location is listed as UNESCO World Heritage site.

Then, you will head south to the archipelago of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The most beautiful coral reef in the West Indies connects this chain of islands and reveals incredible underwater fauna and secret coves.

Then you will return to Fort-de-France after a magnificent cruise.
