St. Martin – Bermuda 21.01 – 04.02. 2025

We will sail in the Caribbean, and plan to anchor outside one or more of the exotic islands. The tender will take us ashore to experience the Caribbean atmosphere. Sailing in these waters is a dream in itself! The voyage can easily be combined with the Atlantic Crossing one way or the other.

It has been seven years since we last did the Atlantic Crossing, we don’t know when the next time will be, take the chance and join us now! The voyage can be combined with the sailing in the Caribbean, from St. Martin to Bermuda, or you can join the ship back to Norway again. That will be quite a voyage!
