Prince Harry’s official visit to the Caribbean on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen is well underway. He’s visiting a grand total of six dreamy destinations including St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada and Barbados, and getting stuck into conservation projects, learning about each island’s culture, and even a spot of cricket.
The best news is, if you’re inspired to take a similar VIP-style trip, you can book one of our brand-new Thomson Cruises Caribbean itineraries. We’ve introduced nine new itineraries and five new ports of call for Winter 2017 including San Juan in Puerto Rico, St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and Nassau in the Bahamas. Plus there are cruise and stay options at some of our fit-for-a-King hotels including Sensatori Resort Punta Cana and Royalton Negril, Jamaica.
Here’s a selection of our special Caribbean itineraries…
The seven islands you’ll cover on this tour are just slightly different from Harry’s, so you’ll feel like a proper royal on this trip. It’s also on our award-winning ship and the newest addition to our fleet, TUI Discovery, so you can expect gourmet dining options, a five-story atrium and activities like Escape Room games and mini golf to get stuck into. Starting in Bridgetown, in Barbados, you’ll visit colourful old Caribbean towns, sparkling sandy beaches, jungles and waterfalls, and get a true taste of paradise.
