As the festive season arrives and the temperature begins to plummet, most of us start daydreaming about escaping to sun-kissed destinations. This year, you can make those daydreams a reality and enjoy a festive cruise around several stunning Caribbean islands.

The Caribbean is one of the world's most famous destinations for winter sun. Many well-heeled travellers return to the platinum shores for a winter getaway every year and, when you see the endless sandy beaches, pristine tropical waters and array of luxury hotels, it’ll be no surprise at all.

With incredible scenery, unforgettable activities and a vibrant atmosphere, the Caribbean is the ideal destination for couples and families alike. However, choosing which island to visit is always a challenge. So, why choose? Starting and ending in Miami, aboard Oceania Riviera you’ll visit the ABC islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, before heading to Grenada, Barbados, Guadeloupe and St Maarten.

What could be better than welcoming the new year with a cool cocktail in hand as you lounge on the deck of a luxury cruise ship? Especially when that ship offers world-class food and wine pairings, suites furnished in Ralph Lauren Home and designer touches that create an elegant, welcoming atmosphere.

Itinerary

Take a private transfer to your hotel for a one-night pre-cruise stay in Miami. With a mixture of city metropolis and beach-side beauty, this is the perfect way to begin your voyage. If you're looking for something a bit different, there are world-class museums and shopping venues, too.
Say goodbye to the exciting atmosphere of Miami and take a private transfer to the port to board Oceania Riviera and begin your cruise of the Caribbean. With rich design and chic furnishings, Riviera was designed to be distinctive and special in so many ways.
Make yourself at home in your elegant suite as you cruise the Old Bahama Channel. A stylish colour palette blends with the soothing colours of the sea, with earthen hues to express the pinnacle of comfort and beauty. Plump the goose down pillows of the Prestige Tranquility bed and descend into pure bliss.
Immerse yourself in the beautiful sea views and enjoy quiet moments taking in the comfort of your private teak veranda. Or, simply lose yourself in deep relaxation with one of the Aquamar Spa+ Vitality Centre signature treatments.
Distinguished by its colourful Dutch colonial architecture, Oranjestad is the capital of Aruba. Named as a tribute to the Dutch king, William of Orange, the city today attracts tourists searching for incredible aquatic experiences including snorkelling, diving and even submarine tours.
There’s so much to experience in this little-known gem. Go for a hike in Washington-Slagbaai National Park and look for birds, lizards and iguanas. Snorkel in the sapphire seas surrounded by a rainbow of tropical fish. Visit a butterfly garden, go sea kayaking through mangroves and see the famed saltwater lake, Gotomeer.
Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, be sure to take in the charming Dutch colonial architecture along Willemstad’s harbour. Explore Curacao's numerous beaches and dive along the stunning coral reefs and hidden caverns. Hike the trails or join a safari through Christoffel National Park to observe the rare flora and fauna.
You can smell the cinnamon and nutmeg well before you dock in St. George’s; a tour of a spice estate in Grenada is almost mandatory. You can also take in a visit to a distillery to see how the island’s sugarcane juice is first turned into syrup and then into rum.
Discover the many beautiful aspects of this island, from its rugged Atlantic coastline to its beautiful great houses, cane fields, exquisite gardens and glorious beaches. See the island's spectacular underwater treasures on your own snorkelling expedition.
Sometimes referred to as ‘Butterfly Island’ because of its shape, Guadeloupe boasts spectacular jungle and scenic hikes to the top of La Grande Soufrière volcano. Be sure to sample the local rum on a distillery tour; it’s a truly unmissable part of any Caribbean adventure.
Natural encounters are around every corner in St Maarten. Discover the dazzling colours of hundreds of butterflies on the ever-popular Butterfly Farm. With a little training from local sailing professionals, you can even navigate a race on an America's Cup course on board the world-renowned sailboat, Stars and Stripes.
Be sure to enjoy some of the best dining at sea. Enjoy Toscana’s authentic Italian dishes, Polo Grill’s steakhouse fare, continental cuisine in the Grand Dining Room, Jacques’ exquisite French bistro, Red Ginger's contemporary Asian cuisine and made-to-order American favourites in the Terrace Café.
As you travel aboard Oceania Riviera you can learn a great deal and work on some of your favourite pastimes. Attend an engaging guest lecture to learn more about the destinations you’ve visited, improve your golf game on the putting green or learn to prepare a variety of exquisite dishes in the only hands-on cooking school at sea.
Arrive back to the glamourous shores of Miami with some fantastic memories. Disembark and transfer to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.
