When we picture a cruise we can’t help but imagine the blue waters of the Caribbean. But what many people do not know when booking a Caribbean Cruise is that the Caribbean is quite large. The islands are broken down into the Western Caribbean, The Eastern Caribbean and the Southern Caribbean. Then there are the islands of Bermuda which are actually not in the Caribbean Sea. Here are some of the amazing islands your group can sail to:
Western Caribbean– These cruises often leave from either Galveston, New Orleans or Florida and sail to the romantic Cayman Islands, the always lively Jamaica, the amazing dive ports of Belize and the exotic ports of Honduras. They will often touch on the tips of the eastern ports of Mexico.
Eastern Caribbean- These islands consist of the dream destinations like the American and British Virgin Islands and the two nation, one island St. Martin/St. Maarten. The soft white sands of St. Thomas and St. John or the history laden forts of Puerto Rico are truly a favorite cruising playground.
Southern Caribbean- Almost all of the Southern Caribbean Islands are small and extremely tropical. They are made up of the islands of Grenada, St. Lucia, Tobago, Barbados, Aruba the Grenadines and more. They are a favorite getaway for the rich and famous…and our very own cruisers.
Bermuda- This British Island is actually made up of 140 tiny islands. But the Bermuda that visitors see is actually made up of just 8 of these islands connected by tiny bridges and causeways. The most famous towns being Hamilton and Kings Wharf. There is nothing like the famous pink sands of Bermuda, the British Hospitality and of course Bermuda Shorts! The favorite ports of departure for Bermuda are New York, New Jersey and Baltimore.
