Full description
After being collected from your cruise ship terminal, you'll depart on a circuit which mixes local history with local drinks. Your first stop will be the Balata Church, where you shouldn't be surprised if the beauty of the white dome looks familiar, as it is a replica of the Sacred Heart in Paris.  It will then be time to move on to a rum distillery where you will not only visit, but also enjoy a Martinique rum tasting. Following that, head to St. Pierre, the Caribbean equivalent of Pompeii.  In 1902, more than 30,000 people were killed in the eruption of Mount Pelee. The museum there relives the disaster and tells the story of a prisoner who managed to escape death by lava. Finally, there is a little more history in store at Le Carbet. It is a small fishing village which was made famous in 1502 by the arrival of Christopher Columbus.
