It will be hard to resist taking a dip underneath one of the rainforest’s stunning waterfalls too, so don’t forget your swim suit!
Set sail and enjoy a deeply romantic cruise around the gorgeous island of Barbados. No need for you to do anything, just sit back and relax with a mouthwatering Bajan-style buffet lunch.
