January - Walker Stalker Cruise to the Bahamas
We kicked off 2016 by experiencing the Caribbean with a twist - onboard a cruise ship overrun by the undead. Who knew how fun it would be to blend our passion for sailing the Caribbean with our love of science fiction? The Walker Stalker Cruise, which sailed from Miami to Grand Bahama Island, turned out to be one of our most unique island experiences to date. It was an unforgettable four day adventure enjoying ship activities and a Bahamas on-shore day then kicking it with cast members and our new dead and undead friends by night .
February - Festival Rum Bahamas
We never grow tired of Caribbean festivals and one of our favorites is recent newcomer Festival Rum Bahamas. Its venue alone - an old moat overlooking Nassau - is an irresistible draw but its attention to authentic Bahamian culture and food, along with a respectable collection of rums from across the Caribbean and beyond, has earned this festival a place in our trekking calendar for the past three years in a row.
March - Sailing Around Antigua
Island treks go from great to amazing when reached by sea instead of by land. And when that destination is Antigua - renowned for having a beach for every day of the year - the trip is bound to be out of this world. From our catamaran, we explored Antigua and neighboring islands in a way we never could by car, allowing us to sample food, views and beaches with ease.
May - Aruba Soul Beach Music Festival
Soul Beach Music Festival celebrated its 16 year anniversary in 2016 and remains one of our favorite Caribbean events of the year. Taking place over the long Memorial Day weekend, this celebration continues to have a wide appeal to a grown and sexy crowd. Our itinerary there - packed with sizzling beach parties, connecting with old and new friends, trekking around the island and attending concerts headlined by internationally renowned artists - ticks off every box on our Caribbean celebration wishlist.
