Tiny island, big country and a quaint capital called Roseau: your next cruise destination with MSC Cruises to Dominica in the Caribbean Sea
Trust MSC Cruises to make your Caribbean holiday dreams come true on a luxury cruise to Roseau, capital of the island nation of Dominica.
As the principal city of the tiny island of Dominica, the quaintly charming town of Roseau enjoys a scenic setting on the banks of the River Roseau overlooking the azure blue of the Caribbean Sea.
As you saunter through town, you will be reminded of Dominica’s periods under British and French rule, the latter being particularly evident in the French Quarter with its array of picturesque and ornately balconied wooden buildings. And those seeking a bite-sized taste of Roseau should head for the Farmers’ Market at the northern end of town to experience the colourful stalls and traders selling fresh fruit and vegetables.
Equally worth a visit as havens of tranquillity are Roseau’s Gothic black-stone Roman Catholic cathedral, the Georgian-style Anglican church and, just east of the main drag, the botanical gardens with their landscaped green fields and a whole host of native Caribbean plants.
And a little south of town is where the locals go to indulge in champagne, but not the kind you drink! Instead, when bathing in the ocean at this attractive spot, you can enjoy the tantalising effect of effervescing bubbles travelling upwards from the geothermal activity below – a sure way to make your holidays just that little bit more special. Or seek out a little slice of heaven at the beautiful Trafalgar Falls and the equally mesmerising Emerald Pool, its deep green water fed by a gushing waterfall. Wherever you go with MSC Cruises, our luxury vacations are sure to please.
