Caribbean Cruises

Over the past few years cruises around the Caribbean have become increasingly popular. The two million or so passengers each year make the Caribbean the cruise capital of the world.

Many travelers find a cruise is a convenient, pleasurable and affordable way to sample islands that they may want to return to later. Also there is no doubt that cruises are still one of the best travel bargains around with a number of agencies selling-off last minute packages often at large discounts.

Unpack your bags just once and let someone else do the driving!

Cruises generally sail from Miami, Tampa or other Florida or Texan ports while others will go from Caribbean based homeports such as Montego Bay, Santo Domingo or San Juan. Well known cruise lines including Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Lines and Holland America Line have Southern, Western and Eastern Caribbean itineraries.

Favorite ports-of-call for larger ships are Aruba, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Tortola, St. Lucia, San Juan, Santo Domingo, St. Kitts, Jamiaca's Ocho Rios and Montego Bay, St. Maarten, Barbados, Martinique, Guadeloupe and Trinidad. Many of these ports offer visitors great duty-free shopping.

Generally the larger the ship the more on-board activities are offered. Non-stop entertainment is provided for those who wnat it including ballroom dance and cooking classes, discos, films, fitness actvities, revues and, of course, endless buffets and snacks. Some cruise ships often feature famous name entertainers.

Smaller ships offer a more yacht-like cruising atmosphere. Windstar Cruises Wind Spirit and Wind Star offer glimpses of the Caribbean, sailing places where larger ships cannot pass; slipping in and out of small harbors like Bequia, St. John, St. Barts, Virgin Gorda, and Jost Van Dyke "without disturbing the balance of local life."

Windjammer Barefoot Cruises continue to be popular with those also looking for a smaller boat and a good time.
