Spend seven nights on gorgeous turquoise waters aboard the elegant sailing yacht Sea Cloud, originally built for C.W. Post heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post

Sail dazzling Caribbean waters aboard the legendary Sea Cloud, originally built for C.W. Post heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, and discover stunning collections and centuries-old gardening traditions on beautifully maintained estates. From Barbados, sail to tiny Carriacou, where we will admire Arawak and Carib artifacts as well as extensive colonial collections in the museum. Call at Nevis, the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton, to tour his childhood home and meander through the island's vibrant botanical garden. On St. Kitts, visit Brimstone Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Romney Manor, an 18th-century home once owned by an ancestor of Thomas Jefferson. Enjoy the white-sand beaches of St. Barthélemy before stepping ashore at Îles des Saintes, site of a significant naval battle fought between the British and the French. On St. Lucia, stroll lush botanical gardens and marvel at volcanic landscapes before returning to Barbados.
