Kensington Launches Exclusive Caribbean Catamaran Cruises

When our Caribbean Destination Expert  returned from her recent trip to the relaxing Caribbean she couldn’t stop talking about the 3 day cruise she took in a catamaran around the British Virgin Islands.  When we saw his pictures of the islands, marine life and palate pleasing food we knew that this was a must for the Kensington portfolio.   As a result Kensington is pleased to launch our newest adventure  – all inclusive Intimate Caribbean Catamaran Cruises.  Kensington’s travelers have voyaged by canoe, kayak, dhow, gondola, yacht and even coracle over the past 8 years but until now we haven’t offered anything like these magnificent guided catamaran tours of the Caribbean.

One of the catamaran fleets

Visit The Bahamas, The French West Indies & Dutch Antilles, The Mayan Riviera & Yucatan, St Vincents & The Grenadines, or The British Virgin Islands.  With luxury accommodations for 8, an experienced captain, hostess and gourmet meals complete with appetizers, desserts and wine, a vacation like this is the ideal way to experience the real Caribbean.  Travelers will leisurely sail through the blue waters of the Caribbean while exploring vibrant ports, secluded islands, pristine beaches, ancient ruins and an abundance of wildlife. One of the highlights of these 8 day tours is that you can stop to swim, snorkel, enjoy water sports or even sunbathe whenever you want! Passengers even have the option of chartering their own private diving excursions!

Sea KayakStateroom

Choose to book a single stateroom and enjoy the company of two or three other adult couples, reserve all the guest cabins (6-8 guests) for your friends and family or book the entire yacht exclusively for you and that someone special.

Underwater Adventures

Take a holiday in paradise.  The expert catamaran crews, with years of experience sailing around the world, provide top notch service allowing you to simply sit back and enjoy the ride. With prices comparable to a week at any 5* hotel, these intimate  cruise getaways are ideal for intrepid adventurers who love the sun but want more than all-inclusive resorts can offer.  Escape from the winter cold and experience life all around the Caribbean.  If you are worried about the food coming from a galley, you need not be.
