SOUTHERN CARIBBEAN CRUISES
Pristine beaches and natural wonders await.
On a Southern Caribbean cruise with Celebrity Cruises, immerse yourself in the laid-back charm and natural wonders that the islands are famous for. Hike through lush rainforests and marvel at the islands’ stunning coastlines. Zipline over verdant landscapes and explore deep underground caves. Discover the simple pleasures of rustic beach bars and unbelievably fresh seafood. Stroll on flawless beaches and get up close to the marine life that inhabits the surrounding seas.
In St. Lucia, trek The Pitons for panoramic views of sea and sand. Play with dolphins in St. Kitts and sway to the sounds of a live steel pan band. Bike the island of St. Croix and stop for a photo-op at the easternmost part of the United States. Tour the largest rum distillery in the world in Barbados. Stop and smell the nutmeg and cinnamon in Grenada. Discover Aruba’s award-winning beaches, Bonaire’s resident flamingos and incredible dive sites, and Curacao’s namesake turquoise-tinged liqueur.
Soak up the Southern Caribbean sun by day, and return to your Celebrity cruise ship each evening for globally inspired dining, thrilling entertainment, and luxuriously appointed accommodations. Your unforgettable Southern Caribbean vacation awaits.
You can’t go wrong diving or snorkeling along the coast of nearly any Southern Caribbean island. Learn how to scuba dive in Bonaire’s National Marine Park, one of the top-rated dive sites in the world. Paddle over Grenada’s vibrant coral reefs on a glass-bottomed kayak. In Aruba, you can explore a mysterious shipwreck via submarine or admire the sunset on board a wooden schooner. In any port of call, wading into the warm Caribbean Sea and marveling at the breathtaking coastline around you is always a good idea.
These stunning islands are filled with lush mountains and tropical landscapes. Meander along a rainforest trail in St. Kitts, tasting local fruit as you go. In Barbados, go underground and witness the fascinating stalactite and stalagmite formations of Harrison’s Cave. Head to Bonaire’s dense mangrove forests for a peek at the rose-colored flamingos. Perhaps the most iconic sight of the region is the dual Pitons of St. Lucia, where you can hike to the summit or admire them from afar while lounging beachside.
Mouthwatering flavors and fresh-caught seafood await in the Southern Caribbean islands. In Antigua, board a catamaran and indulge in a fresh lobster lunch. Visit the private home and garden of a famous Antiguan chef, who will teach you how to cook Caribbean cuisine at home. Try a chocolate-making class at a cocoa plantation in Castries, or explore St. George’s local markets to discover why Grenada is known as “Spice Island.”
In Aruba’s colorful capital city, brightly painted architecture in the Dutch style stands alongside 19th-century military fortifications, juxtaposed with a backdrop of aquamarine waters. Learn the history of Aruba at the Museo Historico. Climb to the top of Hooiberg, the town’s volcanic peak, for expansive island views. Top it all off with a swim at Eagle Beach or a kayak excursion along the secluded Mangel Halto.
Barbados is a favorite port of call for beach lovers and watersports enthusiasts. Swim above shipwrecks, cruise along the coast in a catamaran, or snorkel amongst curious sea turtles. Eco adventures abound, from exploring Harrison’s Cave with an expert guide to watching green monkeys roam through the forest. Whether you prefer your rum straight up or in a tropical cocktail, a tasting of the famous Mount Gay variety is a must.
The dual Pitons of Castries are one of its signature sights, of course, but there’s also a wealth of outdoorsy activities waiting in St. Lucia. After an active afternoon seeing the Pitons, lounge at Sugar Beach nearby. Downtown, shop a bit at the Castries Market for spices and handmade St. Lucian goods. If you’re craving rejuvenation during your time in Saint Lucia, head to the Sulphur Springs for a restorative mud bath.
