Perfect the Art of a Tropical Escape on a Caribbean Cruise

Many of the world’s most beautiful beaches are here. Some long and straight, some tucked between cliffs, some brilliant white, some volcanic black. All gorgeous and serene. But our Caribbean cruises are more than beaches.

Dive and snorkel coral reefs teeming with tropical fish—the Great Maya Reef is the largest living thing in the West. We'll take you climbing up waterfalls and descending into caves. Play golf on a lush green course, ride horseback through turquoise waters, and swim with friendly dolphins. We take history buffs to ancient Mayan temples and Spanish colonial churches.

Since pirate days, bargain hunters have come to trade. Today, travelers on Caribbean cruises seek out unique island fashions and fragrances, designer jewelry and Mexican silver, Cuban cigars, even blue Delft figurines.

Foodies love our Caribbean cruise vacations, where chefs fuse traditional dishes with local fruits for enchanting flavors. Enjoy mahi-mahi, grouper, kingfish, red and yellowtail snapper, and conch from the iconic shell. Get chicken, pork, and duck served fried, grilled, roasted, or blackened. For lunch on the go, grab some hearty empanadas, and in Mexico, don't miss the guacamole and margaritas.

Whether it’s a quick getaway you want or a two-week island-hopping adventure, when you vacation with us, you’ll come back completely renewed and restored.

Caribbean Cruise Highlights

Natural Beauty

Climb, hike, swim, bike, or chill in some of the world’s most beautiful places. From verdant mountain peaks to dazzling coral reefs teeming with tropical fish, the Caribbean is a never-ending show of nature’s wonders. Azure seas, sugar-white beaches, rainforests, volcanoes – there is nothing subtle about the various landscapes of the Caribbean. Every island has its own personality, from sleepy to bustling, and on a Caribbean cruise you can experience it all.

History

The islands in the Caribbean have been shaped by many different cultures over the centuries—Dutch, British, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, African, and indigenous Amerindians. In the Caribbean, you can visit ancient forts, museums, old churchyards, and UNESCO World Heritage sites in many of our ports of call in St. Kitt’s and Nevis, Curacao, Barbados, and Puerto Rico.

Cuisine

Discover taste sensations you’ve never experienced before in the islands. A year-round growing season means garden-fresh ingredients are always available. Distinct island flavors come from coconut, jerk seasoning, curries, mango, guava, papaya, ackee, and more. Not to mention, the Caribbean has an abundance of the best seafood around. On your Caribbean cruise, you can tour rum distilleries, cocoa farms, coffee farms, and get a true taste of the Caribbean.

Featured Caribbean Destinations

George Town, Cayman Islands

Grand Cayman has the glitz and glam you might expect from a city known for its financial district, but also has the sandy beaches, translucent blue water, and laid-back island lifestyle you’d expect from a Caribbean getaway. These two sides of the island give George Town a beautifully vibrant atmosphere.

Tortola, B.V.I.

One of the most scenic islands in the Caribbean. Hike along the seven available walking trails in Sage Mountain National Park for stunning views of the island and the surrounding natural habitat. Snorkel in the crystal-clear waters and enjoy a rum tasting at a distillery—both essential on a cruise to Tortola.

Bridgetown, Barbados

Miles of sandy beaches, aquamarine island waters, and an abundance of plantations and historic sites to tour means you’ll find plenty to do during your time here. Be sure to try traditional Bajan dishes like coucou and macaroni pie and make time to enjoy rum tasting on a distillery tour.

The Many Sides of the Caribbean

You can’t ask for a better place to get away from it all than the Caribbean. With over 80 islands in the Caribbean, and multiple cultures contributing to their creation, you can be sure no two regions are alike. Chill in the Eastern Caribbean, explore history in the Western Caribbean, marvel at natural wonders in Southern Caribbean. Discover the one-and-only Everglades in Florida, exotic rainforests in Costa Rica, and the never-ending beauty of the ABC Islands.

Beautiful Beaches

Marigot Bay, St. Lucia

Marigot Bay beach is on the Northwest coast of Saint Lucia. You should visit because there’s a reason this picturesque location has been used in many Hollywood movies. It has the best of both worlds: plenty to see and do nearby, but less crowds and noise than at other beaches.

Eagle Beach, Aruba

Sometimes doing nothing at all is the only thing you need. There’s no shortage of beautiful beaches in Aruba, but for the classic post card view, Eagle Beach is the spot. Coconut palms, sea grapes, and Divi-Divi trees are abundant. The sand is white, the waters crystal clear, and the surf nice and calm.

Champagne Beach, Dominica

Ranked as one of the top diving spots in the world, Champagne Beach gets its name from warm bubbles created by underwater hot springs that rise to the surface, just like champagne bubbles. These warm bubbles offer the most exquisite geothermal massages and help soothe the mind and body.

Ships Sailing in the Caribbean

We have seven stunning ships sailing throughout the Caribbean Islands, so you can relax, recharge, and refresh in luxury.
