Renaissance To Offer Caribbean Sailings

November 22, 2000
Renaissance Cruises, the industry’s only major line that doesn’t offer Caribbean itineraries will begin sailing in that region from December 7, 2001 through March 8, 2002. The line, whose 684-passenger R-class vessels combine small-ship intimacy with big-ship amenities, will be sailing two different itineraries: Aruba to Barbados, with stops in Curacao, Tortola, Martinique and Trinidad, and a Barbados roundtrip, which calls at St. Maarten, Antigua, Grenada and St. Lucia. In other Renaissance news, the cruise line will also expand its geographic reach to South America where next November and December will see three new itineraries: a 15-day voyage from Buenos Aires to Santiago, a 14-day cruise from Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires, and a 16 day transatlantic from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro.
