The Yachts of Seabourn provide us with this week’s Unique Itinerary.  Not only is it a unique Caribbean voyage, but it sets sail from a unique homeport and comes with a unique price.

Departing December 2, 2009, this seven-day voyage aboard Seabourn Spirit sails roundtrip from Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas.  The Seabourn Spirit then spends one day at sea, followed by calls at:

Deshaies, Guadeloupe

St. John’s, Antigua

Gustavia, St. Barthelemy

Marigot, St. Martin

Prickly Pear Island

Yes, Prickly Pear Island, BVI.  Part of the British Virgin Islands, and just off the Virgin Gorda, Prickly Pear Island is home to – surprise – plenty of prickly pears, a type of cactus.  If weather permits, the ship will stop at Spanish Town to disembark guests going on tour before repositioning off Prickly Pear where the crew puts on a complementary Prickly Pear beach party.  If you think that sounds like a mouthful to say, try typing it. 

It’s also important not to confuse this Prickly Pear Island (BVI) with Prickly Pear Island, Antigua – home to twelve inhabitants and an enormous underground cache of used nuclear reactor rods from Royal Navy submarines that have left the island in a highly radioactive state for the next 1,200 years or thereabouts.  Not the sort of place you want to go on a cruise, at least not without a lead bib and a good Geiger counter.

Like Prickly Pear Island BVI, the other ports of call are all off the beaten path from the typical Caribbean cruise: you’re not going to find Cozumel or Grand Cayman on this itinerary, and that’s how Seabourn’s guests like it. 

The best part about this itinerary is arguably its price: starting at $1,999, this voyage is an excellent chance for those looking to experience The Yachts of Seabourn to do so without breaking the bank.  Seabourn has long distinguished itself as one of the finest ultra-luxury lines afloat, and the chance to hop onboard for as little as two grand is almost unheard of.
