    Best Cruises in the Caribbean

     

    Caribbean cruises are hugely popular as they offer the flexibility of exploring several islands within one trip and therefore provide both value for money and convenience. It’s easy to see why the Caribbean is the most popular cruise region in the world  - breath taking beaches and stunning scenery combined with adrenaline junkie activities offer a once in a lifetime cruising experience. Due to the Caribbean’s popularity, cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Princess and Disney run all year round. High season this side of the world runs from Christmas to Easter when those looking for guaranteed sunshine find balmy warm winter shores with temperatures in the high twenties centigrade high. Caribbean cruises are busy whenever you travel, however if you are looking to avoid peak season travelling in the shoulder season of April and May the weather is still good but you have missed the post-Christmas, and Easter holiday rush.

If you are in town on a Friday, do not miss dancing under the stars at the island’s most famous fish fry, Oistins. Barbados Reviews >

    COCOBAY is another must see and is perfect for those with kids in toe. This island in the Bahamas is reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests and is the perfect place to embark on an array of activities from snorkelling to parasailing. Cocobay is also home to its own aqua park making it a firm family hotspot. 

    If Cocobay seems a bit too hectic, take a rainforest stop at the picturesque and lush island of ST LUCIA - where chocolate tasting is mandatory. Rampage through the rainforest via canopy wires or relax on one of the sun kissed beaches overlooking the magnificent Pitons. St Lucia >

     



    Yes there are heaps of must see’s in the Caribbean! There are hundreds of cruise itineraries to choose from and are all very varied to suit different travellers needs. Whichever Caribbean cruise you decide on, our advice is to book early if possible. Popularity of the Caribbean Cruise means that last minute cruises are rarely discounted but if you book ahead you can make the most of offers such as onboard credit or cabin upgrades.
