The Caribbean

If you want to escape to somewhere more exotic (and perhaps warmer), our Caribbean cruises stop in multiple island destinations.

Visit the white-sand beaches of Cozumel and the quirky town of Key West on a Western Caribbean cruise. In the Southern Caribbean, visit the stunning ABC islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. See the wondrous pitons of St. Lucia or take a dip in Magens Bay in St. Thomas on an Eastern Caribbean cruise.

Transcontinental Cruises

One of the simplest and most luxurious ways to discover the world is to take a transcontinental cruise that sails between two continents. Known as repositioning cruises, cruise ships traverse oceans on their way to a new region for an upcoming cruise season.
