Start next year on a high with this trip from Reader Offers Ltd: an 11-night holiday including a Barbados stay and a 6-star all-inclusive cruise for £2999 per person. We found another agent selling this deal without the stay for £1399 more.
This luxury experience starts with flights from London to Bridgetown in Barbados on 7 January, 2013**. Guests will then be transported to the deluxe Hilton Barbados, where they will stay for three nights on a bed-and-breakfast basis. The beachfront property, which has a large free-form pool and a spa, is "beautifully situated on the sandy Needham's Point peninsula", according to Fodor's.
Following the stay, a private transfer will take guests to Silver Spirit, a 6-star ship from Silversea, a winner of many awards for Best Luxury Cruise Line and Best Small Ship Cruise Line over the years***.
The price includes all on-board meals, snacks and drinks, including cocktails, wine and champagne by the glass. Accommodation is in a Vista Suite, which has a queen-size bed, a marble bathroom, a sitting area with large picture windows and flat-screen TVs with on-demand movies****.
The small-size vessel sails to off-the-beaten-track ports that bigger cruise ships can't access. This itinerary includes stops in Bequia (a 7-square-mile beach paradise in the Grenadines), Roseau (Dominica), Basseterre (St Kitts) and San Juan (Puerto Rico). The ship ends its journey in Fort Lauderdale (Florida), where guests will be transferred to Miami for the flight back to the UK. Click here for more information.
All bookings made by 14 November will also receive an exclusive luxury Christmas hamper.
