Itinerary for Big Apple & Caribbean Calypso

Day 1 - Fly UK to New York / Enjoy New York

Day 2 - Enjoy New York

Day 3 - Embark Norwegian Gem in New York

Everyone loves New York and there are a million reasons why. Here are but a few: the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, the Ellis Island National Monument, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, Times Square, Broadway, Greenwich Village, 5th Avenue and Central Park.

Day 4 - At Sea

Day 5 - At Sea

Day 6 - Grand Turk

Founded in 1681 by Bermuda settlers for sea salt production, Grand Turk is the largest of the Turks Islands and is home to historic sites, stunning beaches and colourful marine life. From diving and snorkelling to lounging beachside or exploring the island on scooters, there's something to match everyone's holiday style. Discover the island's British and Bermuda roots while touring Cockburn Town where you can learn about the island's old sea salt industry and see the popular Grand Turk Lighthouse - the only lighthouse in the Turks and Caicos. Or enjoy a scenic boat ride over to nearby Gibbs Cay and splash around with the wild stingrays that like to gather in the pristine calm waters surrounding the island.

Day 7 - St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands)

The waterfront warehouses where gold-hungry pirates once stored their booty now house treasure of another kind: duty-free china, watches, jewelry and other luxury goods. Shopping is one of the big onshore attractions in Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the US Virgin Islands. Offshore, colorful coral reefs in turquoise waters lure snorkelers and scuba divers from all over the world. And everywhere, there's spectacular scenery everyone can enjoy!

Day 8 - Philipsburg, St Maarten

With an area of only 37 square miles, the island of St. Maarten is the smallest landmass in the world to be divided between two governments. The southern Dutch half offers casinos, duty-free shopping and island culture. The French half is all subdued sophistication.

Day 9 - Tortola

Discovered by Christopher Columbus himself in 1493, this exotic, peaceful island is home to both towering mahogany trees and white-sand beaches. The region offers a challenging hike that extends 1,780 feet up Sage Mountain. A great spot for great birdwatching and breathtaking views of Tortola and neighbouring islands.

Day 10 - Puerto Plata/Dominican Republic

Puerto Plata (or officially known as San Felipe de Puerto Plata) is the ninth largest city in the Dominican Republic and the capital of the province of Puerto Plata. For spectacular city views, take a ride up the Pico Isabel de Torres mountain which stands over 2,600 feet high. History buff? Visit Fortaleza San Felipe, which was built in the 16th century and served as a prison under the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. Or head to the Amber Museum, a museum filled with a unique collection of valuable Dominican amber which is semiprecious tree sap that has hardened for millions of years capturing many fossils of plant and insect life.

Day 11 - At Sea

Day 12 - At Sea

Day 13 - New York, disembark & transfer to airport / Fly New York to UK

Everyone loves New York and there are a million reasons why. Here are but a few: the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, the Ellis Island National Monument, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, Times Square, Broadway, Greenwich Village, 5th Avenue and Central Park.
