Day Twenty Three: Thursday, December 11 - Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines
Breakfast: On board

Morning: Drive through Kingstown, St Vincent’s bustling capital, brimming with shops and businesses. Take in the historical and modern buildings—the Parliament and police headquarters date back to the 18th and 19th centuries respectively, while the recently constructed Financial Complex and vegetable market offer an altogether modern metropolitan look. In the center of Kingstown, keep an eye out for the symbolic statue that is the town’s Cenotaph—or War Memorial. This was erected in memory of the brave Vincentians who fought and died in the World War I from 1914 to 1918. The tour continues to the Botanic Gardens—the oldest gardens in the western hemisphere—established in 1765. Throughout the Botanic Gardens’ 20 acres, you will see a wide variety of tropical flora. The breadfruit tree is derived from a sapling brought to St Vincent by the infamous Captain Bligh. You will also see a newly constructed aviary, which houses the protected National Bird, the Amazona guildingii parrot. Take a 30-minute drive to the lush Montreal Gardens tucked away in the interior of the Mesopotamia Valley—commonly known as the breadbasket of the Grenadines due to its rich and fertile soil. The gardens are located at an elevation of approximately 3,017 feet above sea level, which gives rise to a fantastic view of the surrounding hills and valleys, banana fields and other root crop plantations. The Montreal Gardens are 30 years old and were once owned by Vincentian Douglas Brisbane, who later sold the property to Timothy Vaughan from Martinique. Here you can enjoy an array and variety of exotic flowers and fruit trees. There is a special spot in this tranquil garden for you to stroll along the paths or simply sit beneath the shade huts provided.
