Author and Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez said that Caribbean reality resembles the wildest imagination. Long have these magnificent islands become associated with exotic holidays, dream- like worlds of leisure and entertainment, and hubs of unimaginable beauty. Our exclusive Caribbean cruise deals offer a choice of exciting Caribbean ports just waiting for you to explore.
Miami - USA
Miami is a city developed with the touring visitor in mind. It has lavish beaches, restaurants and amazing shopping facilities, not to mention an array of water sport activities as well. One of the unmistakable influences on Miami is that of Cuba. It’s hard to miss the Cuban food, music and atmosphere as you explore the city.
Charlotte Amalie – St. Thomas
Charlotte Amalie is the port you’ll visit on the island of St. Thomas, which is part of the U.S. Virgin Islands. You’ll love the postcard-perfect beaches with palm trees swaying in the wind. There are a number of day excursions and tours from kayaking to snorkelling, and jet-skiing to hiking. Finish off the day with a relaxing cocktail as you dip your toes in the sand and watch the sun set on the horizon.
Bahamas & Caribbean
Although Nassau can become quite congested due to its popularity, the tree-lined roads, tropical atmosphere and incredible beaches will more than make up for this. Try your luck at one of the casinoes, splash out at the duty free shopping hot spots or take a boat excursion to look for dolphins.
Port Canaveral - USA
Port Canaveral is well known as the home of space shuttle launches, and is associated with its close location to Orlando – the home of Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and a number of other fantastic theme parks. Check out the Kennedy Space Centre or take it easy on the pristine beaches before relaxing in any one of the restaurants at the Cove in Port Canaveral.
Labadee - Haiti
A typical day at Labadee consists of snorkelling, zip lining across the sea on a 2 600 foot zip line or eating from the all-you-can-eat barbeque. You’ll love exploring places like Dragon’s Plaza, Buccaneers Bay, Barefoot Beach Club, Town Square, Adrenalin Beach and Columbus Cove.
Falmouth - Jamaica
Falmouth is a typical Jamaican town with a strong Georgian influence. There are a number of excursions and outings you can arrange with your cruise line, or you can choose to explore the town on your own. Relax on the beach, or go tubing down the river, take a tour of the city or explore the Green Grotto caves.
George Town – Grand Cayman
The port of George Town on the Grand Cayman island is what you would expect when visiting a typical Caribbean island holiday resort. The beaches are covered in spectacular white sand with turquoise water and palm trees framing the scene. The town can get extremely busy with visitors, but the shopping is fantastic, the beaches are amazing and one of the main attractions, Sting Ray City is not to be missed.
Cozumel - Mexico
Cozumel is the largest of Mexico’s Caribbean islands and despite being a cruising hot spot, has managed to maintain its natural characteristics with kilometres of unspoilt beach and forests. Situated off the Yucatan coast, Cozumel offers incredible dolphin excursions, trips to Cozumel’s Mayan ruins, catamaran trips or the opportunity to catch some sun on a stretch of perfect beach.
Half Moon Cay - Caribbean
Half Moon Cay is situated about 160km southeast of Nassau. When visiting this little piece of paradise, you can make use of the 4km long beach and go snorkelling, visit the aqua centre, go on a stingray adventure, go horse riding or take part in a number of other water sports available on the island.
Grand Turk – Turks and Caicos Islands
Although not strictly speaking a Caribbean island, this is a destination perfectly suited to those who prefer a slower pace of life. There are plenty of white sandy beaches to visit and the island is well known as having one of the largest coral reefs in the world. This means world class snorkelling and diving are definitely a must.
Bridgetown - Barbados
Barbados is island living, defined. So kick off your shoes and sip a cocktail beneath a palm tree, take a dip in the sea and soak up the island way of life. You’ll love the old colonial buildings, shopping, scuba diving and maybe playing a round of golf at the beautiful seaside courses.
San Juan - Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is a small island in the Caribbean with San Juan as your port of call. You’ll love the Isla Verde strip which is right on the beachfront and is widely known for its bars and restaurants. Take a stroll through the old San Juan with its cobblestone roads and bright colonial buildings, and be prepared to go back in time as you marvel at the ancient landmarks, dating back to the 16th century.
