What is a Caribbean Cruise like?
You’ll feel like a superstar onboard one of these spectacular cruise liners, so even when you’re travelling between destinations, you’ll still be able to enjoy the VIP lifestyle, enjoying world-class cuisine, sipping on cocktails, partying on deck or relaxing in the spa.
As indulgent as the cruises are, be sure to experience the Caribbean as a treat of a lifetime by going ashore. There are thousands of islands throughout the Caribbean, so you could be sipping a coconut cocktail in Barbados one day and snorkelling the clear seas of St. Vincent and the Grenadines the next.
Ports of Call on a Caribbean Cruise
The Caribbean islands offer a paradise for everyone who steps foot on their sandy shores, and there’s a cruise that visits every destination you’ve ever dreamed of visiting. The best-known islands of Barbados and Jamaica are a given, while the lesser-known but still incredible Grenada, Tortola, Mayreau, Antigua and St Kitts are just a sample of the other ports on offer.
The places you can stay
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 on a Caribbean Cruise
The Caribbean offers the ultimate Mojo indulgences in every destination. The white sands and blue waters of Caribbean beaches are universally famous, but there’s so much more to the islands than sun-soaking.
Alternatively, indulge your romantic side soaking up the scene in Fort Lauderdale, the ‘Venice of America’ where you’ll enjoy fine dining in world-class restaurants and watching the sun set over the canals and waterways.
Best time to go on a Caribbean Cruise
You’ll enjoy hot and sunny weather pretty much all year round in the Caribbean. More moderate temperatures are prominent between November and May, which is the favoured time to vacation for seasoned Caribbean holidaymakers.
The summer months (between May and November) boast particularly sizzling temperatures thanks to the bright Caribbean sunshine, making it a particular favourite time of year for sun-worshipers. It’s also a great time to snorkel towards the coral reefs and unwind on the white sandy beaches, but it’s worth keeping in mind that it’s hurricane season between 10th June and 30th November.
