With a heritage older than the American Revolution, the gardens of the Caribbean – along with the islands' other historic sites and welcoming cultures – await your arrival with Princeton Journeys. Join your fellow Princetonians, January 15-22, 2015, on a tropical getaway aboard the sailing yacht, Sea Cloud II, where understated elegance, gourmet cuisine, and gracious service reign supreme.
From Barbados, cruise to Trinidad to admire Port of Spain’s eclectic colonial architecture and its 200-year-old Royal Botanic Gardens. Step ashore at St. George’s, Grenada, the "Spice Island," to tour two private gardens — one in the same family for six generations — and sample a traditional rum punch. In Kingstown, inhale the nutmeg and black pepper of the St. Vincent and Grenadines Botanic Gardens, established in 1765, and ascend to the Montreal Estate Gardens, nestled in the mountains overlooking the surrounding farmland. On St. Lucia, enjoy a swim on a white-sand beach tucked between the island's majestic pitons; and call at tiny Bequia, for a hike to a turtle hatchery or some seaside time in this snorkeler's paradise.
Please note: Princeton travelers will be joined by those from partnering organizations.
