Readers Offers Launches New Barbados Cruise with a Stop in the Grenadines

Holidaymakers craving a cruising holiday to the Caribbean will be pleased to know that Readers Offers have recently announced a show stopping 16 night cruise itinerary taking its passenger from New York to Barbados where passengers will be treated to a three night pampering session at a luxury five-star Barbados hotel. Along the way guests will have the pleasure of visiting some of the Caribbean’s most luxurious destinations including Bermuda, St Bart’s, Antigua, Dominica and The Grenadines. For many, an itinerary like this offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to take in, if only for a short time, the sights and the atmosphere that one can enjoy during luxury holidays in The Grenadines.

The Grenadines, located between St. Vincent and Grenada, is comprised of an archipelago of 100 tiny islands and keys, the largest of which is Bequia otherwise known as “the island of the clouds” a name given to the island by the native Carib Indians many years ago.

Unlike many other Caribbean Islands, the lesser known Grenadines have yet to be overrun by tourists. With only 5000 residents in Bequia, there is a real secluded feel to the islands making it the ideal spot for a romantic day together with that special someone. Visitors to the islands will be struck by the fact that there are no major high rise modern luxury hotels in the Grenadines, elaborate shopping centres or casinos, instead they will be faced with an ideal, if not stereotypical, island paradise.

The seven-square-mile island of Bequia has proved to be a popular spot for yachtsmen making boat building and repair a vital industry with tourism gradually growing in importance as the island chain becomes more accessible via St. Vincent.Despite its low key nature, passengers have a range of activities at their fingertips. A walk to Mount Pleasant from the main village of Port Elizabeth is well worth the effort, paying off with a jaw dropping view of Admiralty Bay and for those adventure seekers hoping to see some of the island’s flora and fauna, the hilly terrain and forests are perfect for a hike.

Alternatively, passengers can choose to spend those couple of hours more reflectively, lazing on the soft white sand basking in the fresh sea breeze at the Princess Margaret beach for example. Of course, as with most Caribbean islands, snorkelling and a range of other fun water based activities are readily available.

Although small in size the islands, like Bequia, which make up the Grenadines have lots to offer and many passengers will find that their short stay courtesy Readers Offers will leave them longing to book their next holidays in the Grenadines.
