Would you like to cruise Southern Caribbean style? Well you have come to the right place. This blog focus on several of the dynamic islands awaiting your visit. There are several reputable cruise lines that service the Southern Caribbean and we would be honored to be of service.
San Juan, Puerto Rico. The sensational San Juan, Puerto Rico is a great starting place especially for a pre-stay. It is highly recommended to arrive at least one day before to avoid potential flight delays if you are going to do a pre-stay.
Preview our Puerto Rico: Heart & Soul blog for the many adventures that await – activities, food, drinks, and music! Do not forget the pina colada and the 70+ rums. Do a pre-stay and get to know the island.
Do not miss this foodie paradise!. Feast on Puerto Rico's cuisine and quench your thirst with the national drink, a pina colada! The pina colada was created in Puerto Rico and is made with local rum. Remember you are in the Rum Capital of the world!
St. Thomas. The innate beauty of St. Thomas will leave you breathless! Take the island tour -- beaches, island views, historical locations, with an ultimate shopping experience. Views of Charlotte Amalie Harbour, the Caribbean Sea, etc. At the highest peak, Mountain Top, see Atlantic coast views of small islands, Magen's Bay, etc. Whatever you do not let the pirates make you walk the plank!
St. Maarten. Why cruise to St. Maarten and not see the sights, island highlights and shopping at Philipsburg beach. Ride the Sky Explorer for a 360-degree view and see neighboring islands . . . . You will definitely want to visit both side of the city, French and Dutch. Be a free spirit and explore!
St. Kitts. Discover the beauty of St Kitts. Visit the lowland valley area which was once occupied by the French, Basseterre. View historical attractions, the Palm Court Gardens and a must see UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. You will be in awe at Timothy Hill, known as the island's most popular photo stop. Whatever you do, have fun! Do as much or as little as you want!
St. Lucia. Be wowed with unforgettable island experiences! Panoramic views of Castries and surrounding areas. Bypass old military barracks, war cemetery, gun powder battery, etc. Observe local sculptors creating sculptures from local woods.
If you get a chance visit the Roseau Valley Banana Plantation--the largest one in St. Lucia. Learn about the cultivation and production of bananas and do a tasting. The majestic Piton Mountains, St. Lucia’s most famous landmark, have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Do not forget to purchase souvenirs. St. Lucia is an awesome destination and you may wish to consider returning for a full vacation.
Barbados. Okay, enough is enough! No you cannot stay in Barbados! You must return home! You fell in love with the pottery, fine art, lush countryside, the Parliament Buildings, the rum, the atmosphere, the food, etc. If your throat a little parched, then make your way to the Foursquare Rum Distillery. This distillery continues the 350 year old Barbadian tradition of rum making. Homework Assignment: Learn the history, production of rum and sample these exceptionally fine products. Hint! Take some bubble wrap for packing bottles in your suitcase.
Tour the island, see the most photographed spot and the surfing capital of the world -- The Soup at Bathsheba. Do not forego Martin’s Bay fishing village -- enjoy fish cake, banana bread and a beverage. There is much to see and Barbados is a great for a return visit. I cannot tell it all because some things are best to be experienced on your own. Enjoy the island of Barbados before returning to the ship.
A Day at Sea. After awesome ports of call there's one more day before disembarking. A little indulgence should not hurt. You never know what's on the menu.
