Selecting your Caribbean cruise can be fun and complicating. There are many ships to choose from and many different islands to visit. Here are a few of our top picks.
Best Itinerary for Culture-Western Caribbean
On this cruise you will typically stop in Jamaica, Mexico and Grand Cayman. Some also stop in places such as Roatan and Belize. The cruise will give you the opportunity to learn about past civilizations in Mexico, climb a waterfall or ride a bobsled in Jamaica or swim with the sting rays in Grand Cayman.
Best Itinerary for Relaxing-Eastern Caribbean
This cruise will have many days at sea and typically a stop at a private island. You will typically stop at 2 ports such as St. Thomas, St. Martin, St. Croix or San Juan. You will also usually make another stop in the Bahamas or Grand Turks.
Best for Exploring Many Places-Southern Caribbean
This cruise will leave from San Juan and you will usually stop every day. If you want to experience many of the islands deep in the Caribbean such as Grenada, St. Lucia, Aruba, Barbados, Tortola, St. Martin, Bonaire, Antigua and many others this is the cruise for you. Each island has plenty to offer as well as amazing beaches.
Best Cruise for Exploring the Ship-Royal Caribbean
If you have been to most of the ports but want to make the ship the adventure then choose one of Royal Caribbean’s large ships such as Oasis, Symphony, Allure or Harmony of the Seas. On these ships you can climb a rock wall, go ice skating, eat at one of 20 restaurants, choose from over 7 pools and even watch a diving show. These ships have balconies that overlook Central Park. Many clients don’t even get of and just enjoy all the activity on the ships.
Best Cruise for Exploring Smaller Ports-Windstar
Windstar has 3 ships that sail the Caribbean during the winter. They have one ship that has only 148 passengers and another with 200. These ships can give you the ability to explore destinations that the larger ships can’t. They also have a marina on the back of the ship so you can go wakeboarding or sailing right from the ship. Windstar has a partnership with the James Beard Foundation, so you can expect 5 star food and service.
