Fort de France, Martinique cruise holidays
Martinique, one of the Lesser Antilles, is a chic, beautiful and beguiling island that offers a taste of France deep in the heart of the Caribbean.
It also possesses an endearing West Indian warmth in its personality and a special Caribbean spice in its music, dance and cuisine. Martinique's capital, Fort-de-France, is a neat and colourful town that boasts a scaled down replica of Paris' Sacre Coeur, as well as a memorial to the island's most famous local daughter - Napoleon's 'Not tonight' empress - Josephine. Catch a ferry from the seafront and cruise across the magnificent bay to a clutch of superb beaches. Or visit Mont Pele to see the site of the worst ever volcanic eruption in the Caribbean - then cool off with local rum punch!
