Martinique is for beach lovers, foodies, divers and hikers. This overseas department of France is a sunnier, slightly less crowded version of the motherland. People looking for the more sophisticated pleasures, whether they be the kind you put on your plate or the kind you put on a credit card, will be happy to know that good food and the latest fashions aren’t optional here, but a mandatory fixture wherever visitors congregate - especially in its harbour side capital, Fort-de-France. Along the coast are the wonderful beaches of Petit Anse D’Arlet and the mysterious old capital of St Pierre, including the ruins of the old opera house conjuring up the ghosts from the height of French colonial decadence. All our cabins feature a minimalistic neutral decor for a fresh and spacious feel. Custom designed hull windows offer a bright and airy master cabin. Additional comfort and elegance are added through a plush queen size bed, love seat, vanity and en-suite facilities. There is a master suite up front and a double cabin at the rear with full kitchen facilities – not least a cocktail blender.
