Bridgetown, Barbados

Barbados is one of the most well-known and beautiful islands in the eastern Caribbean. It is part of the British Commonwealth and is named after the Bearded Fig Tree, which was once found in abundance.

Barbados is an island where relaxation and adventure go hand in hand. White sandy beaches stretch for miles while snorkeling and sailing are some of the world-class water sports on offer.

A cruise to Barbados starts with a walk around Bridgetown, the capital city, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. The city has a charming combination of colonial buildings and Caribbean vibrancy. Make sure you visit St. Nicholas Abbey, a historic plantation house and one of three Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere.
