So many exciting things can happen once you get cruising. Introduce yourself to new ports of call and get reacquainted with a few old favorites. On a luxury Caribbean cruise, there are new discoveries to make every day.
The ample choice of eastern Caribbean cruise routes will have you deliberating for some time – a fun pastime in itself. The island duo of St. Martin and St. Maarten, and their neighbor Anguilla, can really set the tone for ocean-going fun times, which will inevitably spill over to nearby St. Barths and Antigua. Prying yourself away from these chic spots may be harder to do than you had realized.
In the southern Caribbean, the “ABC Islands” of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao are the perfect Dutch island treats. The authenticity and natural beauty of Grenada and St. Vincent are a definite delight, while the cosmopolitan beach clubs of Barbados will feed both body and soul. Try to work in the luxury-leaning Cayman Islands on your way down.
Western Caribbean adventures bring balmy days and starry nights on the coast of Mexico, with luxury cruises touching on Cozumel, Costa Maya, Roatan, and Harvest Caye. Itineraries on this side of the map frequently include a pitstop at Key West for a night of revelry.
Ships from cruise lines such as Crystal, Oceania, Norwegian, Celebrity, and Holland America are very easy to come home to at the end of the day. And you’ll miss it like crazy when it’s time to say goodbye.
