Make way to stop!
Puerto Rico, San Juan
After spending 36 hours at sea and feeling no urge to moor, we were suddenly impatient to get off their heels. And for good reason, we’re seeing the first colonial-inspired buildings in Puerto Rico’s capital, San Juan, take shape outside. It only takes a few steps to be mesmerized by the city and its 500-year-old historic heart. The cobbled streets, colorful stalls and humorous surroundings invite you to take a stroll in the lush shade of nature. Enjoy Fort El Morro, La Fortaleza and Catedral San Juan, bargain with street vendors, enter art galleries and have a friendly drink with the locals to the tunes of salsa music.
US Virgin Islands, Charlottetown
Turquoise waters, pleasure boats, carefree swimmers enjoying that sweet feeling of living an endless summer, it’s a real postcard pleasure to share. A bit of history in this destination that has become a place for billionaires to stroll quietly without the slightest sign of ostentation. The US Virgin Islands were revealed to the world during an expedition in the 15th century. They were regularly attacked by pirates including Blackbeard the Terrible, and ended up falling into the hands of the Danes who undertook to develop them. The new power, the United States, did not pay attention to it until the twentieth century and decided to acquire it strategically.
Numerous museums chronicle the many adventures of the island and plunge you into the ruthless world of piracy. Don’t miss it because holidays also rhyme with knowledge, don’t offend teens! They will drag their feet at first but soon triumph in this historic exhibition. Thanks Jack Sparrow…
Dominican Republic, Puerto Plata
Nicknamed the “Bride of the Atlantic,” the city is much more than a seaside resort. It is home to beautiful hiking trails reserved for the adventurous, and culture and architecture lovers can take a step back in time at the museums or while walking downtown. Buildings from the colonial era add a certain charm to this large village. Established revelers will reach out to the ever-increasing locals to share their sense of celebration. We rock to the sound of Dominican music with a reggaeton accent.
For excursions, MSC teams will open the doors to a cigar factory and rum distillery.
Bahamas, KMSC Ocean Reserve
We come full circle with the big finale! Docking in the Bahamas, you will remember! Ocean Cay MSC Marine Sanctuary It is much more than an island paradise, it is an expression of desire: to rehabilitate an entire fragile ecosystem to conserve biodiversity as part of the Foundation’s conservation and awareness programme, “Supercoral”. MSC Cruises. An essential work that allowed nature to regain its rights, to recreate the marine fauna and flora to please the passing guests.
Along 7 kilometers of white sandy beaches overlooking Cerulean Lake, there is an enduring spectacle offered by this life-size aquarium. Tropical fish, coral reefs, and water sparkling in the sun invite you to hop on a raft, to embark on a kayak or paddle boat trip or to snorkel to get up close to these Mother Nature treasures.
Between two cruises, take refuge in the shed for a nap after sipping on a good refreshing cocktail and savoring delicious grilled meats. Recharge with a game of beach volleyball or Frisbee. While the kids spend their energy, we allow ourselves a shopping break to discover some souvenirs.
In the evening, the outdoor screen allows you to watch a movie under the stars. We live intensely in the present moment while experiencing the joy of being cut off from the world by the sound of waves and feet in the hot sand.
It is almost time to join the ship in all its comfort. Miami is 100 km away, and last night’s taste is even more magical. But more than that, it’s your cruise that runs through your head, and we think back to the encounters, adventures, laughter, laughter, and beautiful pictures…
By the time you get to your taxi that takes you to the airport, you’ve already made new plans.
