Caribbean The Caribbean is arguably the most popular cruise destination in the world and there’s little doubt as to why that is. So now is a perfect time to search our selection of Caribbean cruises. This tropical utopia boasts spectacular vistas, balmy weather, white-sand beaches, glittering waters and an eclectic group of cultures. Easy accessible from all directions, the Caribbean is served by a great many ports such as Fort Lauderdale in Florida, which is located just a few hundred miles to the north of the Caribbean. Caribbean cruise passengers and the innumerable islands of the Caribbean reap the benefits of year round sunshine and the lazily swaying palm trees don’t hurt its paradisiacal image either. Millions of people visit the region each year and at CruiseAway we feel there’s no better way to explore these islands than on a cruise. After all, the splendour of Caribbean cruises lie in its azure waters as much as its verdant islands. The islands are as rich in colonial history as the waters are of marine life and many remnants of Spanish, British or French rule still remain. Why not take a guided shore excursion to find out more in places like St. Kitts, or Kingston Jamaica?

Caribbean Cruises – Popular destinations.

The many islands of the Caribbean offer cruise passengers variety in terms of scenery, culture, onshore excursions and more. Some of the most well-known islands are perhaps Aruba or Antigua which lie in the south of the region and are celebrated for their spectacular coastlines and warm natives. These islands with their maritime backdrop are perfectly suited to those cruise passengers with an affinity or a love for water sports. If this sounds like you then head over to Curacao for some snorkelling. Here you’ll experience an ethereal world of impossibly colourful fish and vibrant coral reefs. For a more organic experience, head over to Guadeloupe or St. Lucia where the dense rainforests conceal a vast and biologically diverse assortment of wildlife and flora. Other popular Caribbean cruise destinations include Grand Cayman, where the impressive Seven Mile Beach is located and Jamaica, which is home to the cascading Dunns River Falls. There are too many fabulous destinations to visit. They must be experienced to be believed!
