Cruising Guide

Southern Caribbean



With their rain forests, volcanoes, and elements of both West Indian and French heritages, the islands visited on a Southern Caribbean cruise are nothing short of exotic. Southern Caribbean itineraries typically range from eight- to 11-day voyages from San Juan, Puerto Rico and South Florida. Highlights include the tiny island nations of St. Lucia, Curacao, Dominica and Barbados.

“The islands on a Southern Caribbean cruise are just far enough south to guarantee beautiful warm, sunny days – just what the doctor ordered for a winter getaway. When I last did this itinerary with my husband our ports of call included St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados – each distinctively different in its own way. I think the one thing I enjoy most about cruising is that you get to see many different destinations on one trip. In fact, I’ve already been back to most of the ports on this itinerary!”
