A Royal Barbadian Celebration

By HarryTuesday 13th December 2016

November marks a very special occasion for the people of Barbados as the island annually celebrates its independence. With parades to picnics, carnivals to concerts, we’re here to help you get the most out of exploring the Caribbean when you visit!

Antigua, Barbuda, St Kitts, Nevis and St. Lucia each offer a unique chance to experience the vibrancies of some of the world’s most beautiful islands in the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Since 1966, Barbados has dedicated the entire month of November to celebrating its independence. The island is teeming with parades, local music and performances at this time of year, so if you’re wondering when the best time to visit is, we’d recommend no better time. It’s time to pack your sunglasses and get ready for a true Royal Caribbean experience! barbadian_celebration_2 On The island of Antigua you’ll be able to relax and enjoy cultural bliss on a shore excursion to Indian Town Point – one of the island’s many national parks. Stop by Devil’s Bridge, a natural rock formation that resembles a bridge, pick up an unusual black pineapple from the morning market, or enjoy stunning panoramic views from St John’s Cathedral. After a day of soaking up the sun and culture, return to the ship to carry on your Royal getaway. Our Adventure of the Seas and Jewel of the Seas ships give you the chance to become a surf guru on the Flo Rider, test your skills as an ice-skating champion on the ice-rink or sit back and indulge in some onboard cinema; boredom simply isn’t an option onboard. barbadian_celebration_28 Discover the dual-island nation St. Kitts and Nevis. Relax in a calming breeze and enjoy the spectacular scenery of St. Kitts – choose to go on an excursion where you can indulge in a complimentary barbecue buffet lunch, complete with tasty island delicacies. Follow the route to the neighbouring island of Nevis, where your excursion will allow you to bask on the beaches and splash in warm Caribbean waters. A visit to St. Lucia is a must! Visit the south-western town of Soufriere, which sits between the jaw-dropping Pitons. Board a bus to the world’s only drive-in volcano to indulge in hot mineral mud baths, or cruise the coastline via catamaran, taking a pause to swim in a secluded bay.  Soak your cares away in hot-springs waters or travel along the winding road that lines St. Lucia’s west coast - Soufriere is truly breath-taking! Our Barbadian excursions range from visiting the beautiful gardens at Orchid world, to visiting St. John’s Church, Rum Tours and beach days. Enjoy a crystal clear sea whilst snorkelling over coral reefs with turtles, or aim for par at the truly astounding Barbados Golf Club, hosting 18 holes. With an average daytime temperature of 30°C, we’d get prepared to make the most of your Royal Barbadian getaway. It’s time to treat yourself like Royalty! barbadian_celebration_34
