Sail from Miami to New York, and along the way, visit six colourful islands on this 12-day cruise. Basseterre's black sand beaches are a reminder of its volcanic past, but that rich, dark soil makes for the sweetest fruit. Sip a rum punch made with local citrus and you'll be a fan for life. With its picturesque blue water and coved beaches like Magen's Bay, St. Thomas is indescribably beautiful. Take the Skyride to Paradise Point for awe-inspiring views. New York provides fantastic views as well, especially from the open-air observatory on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Iconic Central Park is a must-do, whether you walk, bike or take a carriage ride. Then treat yourself to a slice of pizza and Junior's creamy cheesecake.
