Why Visit Caribbean on a cruise?

Attractions and activities for everyone

The Eastern Caribbean is best known for duty-free shopping in St. Thomas, or the endless cultural diversity of St. Maarten. Tortola is known as a paradise for both divers and snorkelling alike. Many cruise lines also maintain their own private islands in the Eastern Caribbean. These islands are chock full of amenities, including special water diversions as well as a host of interesting activities cruise passengers can indulge in such as banana boat rides, para-sailing, and diving excursions.  

The Western Caribbean offers cruise passengers the likes of Cozumel, a Caribbean playground that offers unlimited tropical diversions. From world- class golf to enchiladas and glass-bottom boat tours, it’s impossible to run out of things to do there.  

Then there’s Grand Cayman, a staple of cruise ship port stops. Seven Mile Beach is Grand Cayman’s centrepiece, but there is a lot more here as well. Visit a turtle farm and hold a baby turtle in your hands. Swim with the gentle stingrays at Stingray City. Visit the Toruga Rum Company where you can sample several varieties of rum cake, and even buy some to take back to your ship. Then head to the town of Hell, a neat place where you can even buy stamps and mail home postcards that will be postmarked “Hell, Grand Cayman.” Now you can really tell your friends how to get to “Hell.”  

Finally, there is the Southern Caribbean, a region particularly popular among travellers from the U.K. because of its British influences. U.K. cruise lines travel there, including P&O Cruises, so it’s not necessary to fly to the United States to pick up an America based ship in order to tour this area.  

Highlights in the Southern Caribbean include Nevis, which is a particularly good destination for nature lovers with all its flora and fauna. Barbados has long been a favourite of cruise passengers, with its quaint colonial towns, as well as the historic “hotspot” known as “Little England” which makes it a real favourite of cruise passengers sailing from the U.K.  

Whichever part of the Caribbean you decide to cruise, you will have more activities than you can possibly do in a week. Just the water-based attractions alone – glass bottom boat tours, speed boat excursions, snorkel and SCUBA diving trips, as well as the many other things to see and do in the Caribbean make it an ideal destination for families, lovers and just about everyone else in between.
