Only have a couple of vacation days to spare? Plan a long weekend away with one of these 5-day cruises to some of the most enticing ports in the Caribbean. With multiple sailing dates to fit almost every schedule, you’re sure to find an itinerary that works for you.
Lounge on pristine beaches and swim in turquoise waters. Taste seafood fresh out of the ocean. Experience all of the luxurious amenities onboard. Cruise from Miami in modern luxury style on one of these unforgettable 5-day Caribbean cruises.
A 5-day Western Caribbean cruise itinerary sails to Key West, Florida, and Cozumel, Mexico. Along the way, you’ll be privy to gorgeous Atlantic and Caribbean Sea views and stunning sunsets from your stateroom’s veranda or one of the decks of the ship.
When your cruise visits Key West, you’ll find a wealth of fun and fascinating things to do. Take selfies at the colorfully painted Southernmost Point Buoy, which marks the southernmost part of the continental United States. Visit Ernest Hemingway’s home, a National Historic Landmark in Old Town Key West. Stroll around Mallory Square and shop for everything seashell. Whether you like your key lime pie by the slice, as a dessert bar, or frozen on a stick, be sure to partake of the island’s famous dessert.
Cozumel, an island off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, is prized for the reef system that circles the island. Scuba divers come from around the world to explore the abundance of coral and sea life, including whales, sharks, eagle rays, hawksbill sea turtles, lobsters, nurse sharks, and the endemic-to-Cozumel Splendid Toadfish.
If you’re scuba-certified, you can easily book a Cozumel shore excursion using Celebrity’s Cruise Planner. Swim among schools of tropical fish and other marine life, and marvel at the colorful coral. If you’re not certified, book a swim and snorkel shore excursion that lets you enjoy reefs and marine life in shallower and equally beautiful water.
There are many more things to do while you’re in port at Cozumel. You could visit Tulum, the one Mayan ruin that’s located on the coast rather than inland, making it easy to visit on the day you’re in port. See the starfish sanctuary at El Cielo, a secluded sandbar, where you can swim and snorkel in gorgeous turquoise water. Take an active tour of the island’s interior on an ATV or dune buggy along challenging trails.
If leisurely and laid back are your preferred mode of vacation, spend time in town shopping, walking along the waterfront, and enjoying the easy Cozumel lifestyle while eating and people-watching at a sidewalk cafe.
