3-4 Day Cruise –While this is a great introductory cruise, it’s also good for a quick getaway, however, you will find these cruises are over very quickly. Typically you will visit the Bahamas Islands and either the Cayman Islands or Cozumel, Mexico. Depending upon where it departs, you may visit Key West and Cozumel, or the Bahamas and Cayman Islands. A four day may take you to three locations – Bahamas, Cayman, and Cozumel.
7-14 Day Cruise – These are the longer cruises that take you to many more ports to visit, and to those beautiful tropical islands that are further south. If you look at our descriptions below, you can see it depends on which Caribbean cruise you would like to take and that will decide which islands you will typically visit. There are some cruises that are even longer – 30, 60, 90 days and more depending on where you would like to go. One other Caribbean cruise to consider is the Panama Canal Cruise – with either partial or total pass through.
Eastern Caribbean – Typically an Eastern Caribbean cruise will take you to the Bahamas, and depending upon the length of the cruise, will take you to Turks and Caicos – Cayman Islands – beautiful St. Thomas Island – San Juan, Puerto Rico – Dominican Republic or Haiti – Key West, Florida – and if you choose wisely, beautiful Jamaica.
Western Caribbean – This is a favorite of many cruisers who love to visit toward the Gulf of Mexico side of the Caribbean. There are generally two Western Caribbean cruise sets – one that goes to Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Belize City. The other western cruise generally travels to Labadee, Haiti, Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Georgetown, Cayman Islands, and Cozumel. Either one of these cruises are fantastic and we recommend doing both of them.
If you are able to book a Western Caribbean cruise that has Roatan, the Honduras, that is one port you will not want to miss.
Southern Caribbean – This cruise takes you to the more southern portion of the Caribbean and one of the better cruises to take you further south, is out of San Juan, Puerto Rico. From here you can visit Aruba, Caracao, Bon Aire, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Grenada, Barbados, Trinidad and so forth. Each cruise line has different and rotating itineraries with different ports, so when you want to plan your cruise, let us know where you would like to go and what to see, and we can help find the cruise for you.
