Cure those cold winter blues by escaping to the Caribbean’s crystal-clear seas and cloudless skies on a truly magical voyage filled with sun-kissed serenity and tropical treasures.

Whether you’re soaking in Cuba’s retro city glory or losing yourself along palm-fringed beaches, dramatic volcanoes or tropical rainforests, the West Indies’ mosaic of islands is a one-stop shop for paradise hunters and active adventurers. Sample authentic Caribbean cuisine and move to a new rhythm as you take in the dazzlingly diverse island scenes.

CRUISE HIGHLIGHTS

Ponta Delgada, Azores

Dotted like jewels in the distant Atlantic, the Azores are world-famous for their lush and dramatic landscapes. Ponta Delgada blends the best of old and new, feeling like a miniature Lisbon, and has everything you could ask for.

St. John’s, Antigua

With its candy-coloured market stalls and kaleidoscope of coral reefs, Antigua’s energetic capital city really is a treat for the eyes (and the taste buds).

Willemstad, Curaçao

The capital of Curaçao is a Caribbean delight, with its friendly multicoloured buildings, enviable climate, charming shopping, colonial architecture – and several famous casinos where you can flirt with Lady Luck.

Havana, Cuba

Sometimes referred to as the Rome of the Caribbean, it’s impossible not to feel enchanted by Cuba’s capital city’s charm, with its Spanish architecture, classic American cars and gorgeous tropical climate.

Lina Mookerjee

Guest Speaker

Lina is a creative and multi-talented member of society, with a unique career history, and an extremely engaging personality - both on and off stage. For 10+ years she was a professional electrical engineer in the nuclear generation and electricity distribution industries before establishing a nationally acclaimed Yoga School - which led to 15 years of significant personal development for both Lina and hundreds of her students. She also made time for her work as an NHS Trust Governor and Childline Counsellor. Now a senior psychotherapist, media expert commentator, human relations business consultant and published writer, Lina also cares for her disabled husband. She divides her disposable time between her two enduring passions . . . as an enthusiastic self-taught and mostly organic gardener; and sharing her many interests as an enrichment lecturer on international cruise ships. Born and educated in Birmingham, Lina's Hindu Brahmin family background enabled her to acquire extensive knowledge and experience of Indian culture, religion and history. Her first degree was in electrical/electronic engineering, followed by post-grad management training. Lina achieved an MA in Jungian Psychotherapy & Healing 20 years later, as part of her ongoing professional development. She is a seasoned traveller, having extensive experience of India, the Middle East and Europe; and is also a seasoned guest speaker, having delivered her highly entertaining and informative lectures on four separate cruise lines, travelling to North America, Brazil and the Amazon, Scandinavia, Russia and Southern Europe. Her talks list is extensive, including famous people (e.g. from the Queen to Elvis Presley; from Evita Peron to Frank Sinatra); a number of "Whistle-stop Tours" (of a variety of places, e.g. from the Azores to the Faroes, from the Amazon to Normandy); subjects from the arts and history (e.g. Wassily Kandinsky, The Romanovs and Revolution, The Hanseatic League; and a rich mixture of popular topics (e.g. TV Comedy, What is Mind-Body Medicine?, James Bond, and A Story of Chocolate!). Lina will be keen to welcome you to her series of enriching lectures, where she will seek to ensure that you will be informed, entertained -- and occasionally inspired
