Cruise the Caribbean way

With waters as indulgent as those found in the Caribbean, a cruise around these 7000 islands is likely the best way to visit. Many a cruise liner stops off at its plethora of ports-of-call: St. Lucia, Barbados, Dominica and St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands, to name but a few.
It can be hard deciding on what itinerary to take, what with so many unique coasts calling you. Here are some of the most popular choices and a little bit of what to expect from each one.

St Lucia

St Lucia

A mountainous land, poking out of the calm water like an emerald rock: this is St Lucia. Not just an oasis to sunbathe on, your chosen cruise company will offer excursions to make the most out of the activities on offer. Cunard Cruises takes guests on sport fishing trips, dolphin discoveries and tours of the Toraille Waterfall and Maranaptha Gardens. A collage of greens, blues and whites, this is a Caribbean hotspot for honeymooners.

Barbados
Woah, we’re going to Barbados! Life really is a beach on this infamous island, known for its vibrant attitude, rich history, sugary sands and water-sporting waters. You can explore its history by walking around the historic Garrison area, make a dream come true by swimming with turtles, catch a wave by kite or wind surfing and top up your tan on Crane Beach. Basically, there is something for everyone!13438700364_cf8dd0150f_z

Dominica

One for those looking to get back to nature: Dominica is an eco-friendly island with some astounding natural sights. You will be woken up from your cruise-life slumber once stepping onto dry land, with many an eye opening shore excursion. Go river tubing down the Pagua River, snorkel around Champagne Reef, find a hot spring escape in Ti Tou Gorge or kayak down Layou River. By the time you get back on deck, a good meal and early night will definitely be in order.

Whichever itinerary you choose to take, the Caribbean will greet you with its good-time vibes, warm welcome and of course, plenty of rum. Images by Mike Fleming and Chris Favero, used under the Creative Commons license.
