Seek out end-of-year Caribbean sunshine on a 13-night circuit from New York. You'll be beguiled by the duty-free boutiques of St Thomas, beach-fringed Antigua, British-influenced Barbados, the majestic Pitons of St Lucia, the Dutch charm of St Maarten and sleepy Tortola.

Tropical and close to the equator, St Lucia is a mountainous, volcanic island in the Lesser Antilles. On this Ensemble Experience you’ll explore its interesting pre-European history and lush tropical vegetation on the rural part of the island
Winding through small, rural communities, you’ll reach Fond Latisab Creole Park at Chassin. Here, you’ll learn about the folk-lore and ancient habits of St. Lucia’s first dwellers, the indigenous tribes that were the original citizens of the New World before Columbus’s discovery of the Americas.
You’ll also experience traditional practices such as the preparation of cassava bread in the ancient Amerindian manner and cooking in macamboo leaves, as well as the local method of catching crayfish.
Part of the event will be traditional log sawing to the intoxicating rhythmic music of a local “chak chak” band, and traditional dancers in their colorful costumes. You’ll be encouraged to join in and lose yourself in this wonderful place where old and new traditions bring you the best of St. Lucia and its lively people. Then, before you leave you’ll sample the cassava bread with a refreshing local drink.
Just a short scenic drive from there is the Pink Plantation, a 150-year-old artist’s home on 2 acres of tropical gardens. The estate was originally named the “Mount Mary’s Estate” and its elevated position lends stunning views of the city, the north of the island, the neighboring French island of Martinique on the horizon, and your ship.
The Pink Plantation is also home to hand-painted ceramics, silk screen fabrics and original paintings by Michelle Elliot. Enjoy a guided tour of the house and antique furnishings, then savor a local lunch on the garden terrace admiring the lush tropical vegetation and gorgeous views.
