What is a Barbados Stay & Cruise like?
There’s so much to do in the island of Barbados that a day on the island just isn’t enough. But it wouldn’t be fair on the other islands for you to spend all of your holiday there. That’s why the Stay & Cruise package is ideal.
Once you’ve finished in Barbados, it’s time to hop aboard a Caribbean cruise, which will take you to the other islands in the area. Whilst being transported between each port, enjoy the VIP lifestyle, breathing in the rich sea air, sampling international-standard cuisine and shopping until you drop.
Cruises from Barbados
There are thousands of islands throughout the Caribbean and your Virgin Holidays Cruise invites you to experience a few of these. Visiting a different island each day, you’ll explore the beautiful coral reefs in Barbados, enjoy the fantastic food in Jamaica and relax on the white sandy beaches of Puerto Rico.
Things to do in Barbados
History plays a huge part in Barbados today, so do yourself a favour and visit some of the local historical attractions there. Barbados Museum and Historical Society offers a look back at the island throughout the ages, and St Nicholas Abbey is something of an awe-inspiring destination.
Of course, the natural beauty of the entire island is second to none, and we don’t just mean the beaches. Harrison’s Caves are an impressive natural landmark, while the manmade Andromeda Gardens are famous the world-over.
Best time to visit Barbados
The temperatures are high throughout the year, though the weather itself can change quite drastically depending upon the month. One of the most popular periods to visit is December to April, as many visitors spend Christmas in the sun.
While this season might have the hottest weather, the January to April period is usually quite dry and offers a cooling breeze that can serve as a welcome relief from the hot sun. Hurricane season officially runs between June and November, with the worst of the weather experienced between August and October. Barbados typically avoids the direct paths of most storms, but heavy rain is a common occurrence.
