Clamour for glamour on Saga’s Sunshine Coast and Caribbean Adventure

Leave the rain behind and bask in the beauty of south Florida’s coastline before embarking on a luxury cruise around the Caribbean islands of the West Indies

Miami’s dazzling Art Deco district awaits to start this 14-night escorted journey. Take the US1 Highway through the stunning Florida Keys and stop off at a dolphin research centre before reaching historic Key West. Visit Hemingway House where the author lived with his family and six-toed cats  and later wander down to Mallory Square to watch the sunset over the United States’ southern tip.

Take an airboat through the natural wilderness of the Everglades and visit Edison’s Lighthouse on the West Coast before soaking up the art and culture of Naples. There will also be time to visit the Ford Museum before joining MS Nieuw Amsterdam or MS Eurodam for a seven-night, full-board luxury cruise.

Sail to exciting ports of call including Grand Turk, Turks and Calcos Islands. In San Juan, Puerto Rico, dock beneath the capital’s old walls and tour the magical rainforest. Take advantage of some duty-free shopping in St Thomas and at Half Moon Cay, a private island in the Bahamas, choose from a range of watersports or just laze in the warm sunshine.

14 nights from £2299 departing Heathrow on March 10 and 24, or November 3 and December 1, plus 2015 dates. The holiday can be extended by seven nights at the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach, Florida, from £549.
