More About Caribbean Cruises
The Caribbean is the one of the most popular cruise destinations -- itineraries offer cultural and natural diversity, we well as a multitude of activities and shore excursions to partake in. There are the British traditions of Bermuda and Barbados, the French flavor of St. Barts and Martinique, the Dutch influence of Curacao and St. Maarten, and the Spanish in Puerto Rico and Caracas.
On a typical one-week cruise there are three or four ports of call, while on 10-day or longer itineraries there’s the opportunity to visit more islands. Some of the major cruise lines, like Princess Cruises, Holland America Line and Royal Caribbean own their own private islands, and schedule a relaxing beach day there.
Most Caribbean cruises depart from the southern Florida ports of Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, though other Florida gateways include Orlando and Tampa. Miami has become a world-class city, and it’s fun to spend a day or two before or after one’s cruise exploring its renowned Art Deco district and South Beach. For families, Orlando offers the opportunity to combine a visit to Epcot or Disney World, especially in combination with a Disney cruise.
Short cruises of three to four days visit the Bahamas. One week cruises offer either a Western Caribbean or an Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Cruises from Puerto Rico offer itineraries to the Southern Caribbean.
Most Bermuda cruises depart and return to New York, generally spending a few days at the island to allow you to explore its pink sand beaches or Crystal Cave, rated as the island’s most beautiful attraction. There’s good tennis and golf to enjoy.
