The adventure of a lifetime: Embark on a Caribbean cruise holiday

A cruise is the perfect way of exploring new destinations around the world. Not only do you get the chance to enjoy life at sea, there are also endless possibilities of delving into the culture of new exciting destinations. One of these are the Caribbean. Welcome aboard!
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Speaking about Paradise. The Caribbean consists of more than 7.000 islands and accommodates an array of breathtaking scenery, fascinating wildlife and – of course – a wonderful climate all year round. Close your eyes and imagine a movie scene with sparkling turquoise water and pristine beaches. That’s the Caribbean.

So what’s up with the cruises? If you’re into exploring new destinations (every single day) and you have a thing for luxury (who doesn’t), then a cruise is the ideal way for you to spend a holiday! Here’s a little inspiration.

Coco Cay (Bahamas)

Ever wondered how it would be like to relax on your own private island? Now you and a team of fellow cruise travelers can do just that on the island of Coco Cay, which is exclusively leased to Royal Caribbean Celebrity Cruises. While the island is quite small (1,5 kilometer long and 0,2 kilometers wide), it’s a picture perfect destination if all you need is a hammock and a surreal view to the sparkling ocean. And while you’re here, why not dive for corals or do some water skiing?

Charlotte Amalie (St Thomas)

When all you need is a feeling of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’! This historical island (which was once owned by the Danish government, hence the name), is a true Paradise for animal lovers and anyone with a vivid imagination! Explore Blackbeard’s Castle, watch the mighty Humpback whales in their natural territory and breathe in the luscious, green nature. This is a lifetime trip!

San Juan (Puerto Rico)

The sun always shine in San Juan! It’s the second-oldest European-founded city in the Americas (dating back to Columbus in 1493). This means an abundance of culture and interesting architecture. Take a walk in 450 years of history as you explore the old town of San Juan and indulge in the impressive forts, churches and cathedrals. When you get tired of exploring (which is unlikely to happen!), sit back and enjoy a meal in one of the many charming squares of the city.

Fort-de-France (Martinique)

The capital of Martinique, Fort-de-France, is a must-see for nature lovers. The island itself is dominated by the active volcano of Mount Pelee, and the luscious Balata Gardens is bursting with exotic flowers in all shapes and colors. This is also the place to be if you want to trek, since the Regional Local Park offers a number of treks for both beginners and intermediates.

Oranjestad (Aruba)

The capital of Aruba is called Oranjestad (‘Orange City’ in Dutch), and it’s an interesting eclectic mix of Dutch architecture and Caribbean colors. The food market here is a must-see – even if you’re not interested in cooking! Visitors will find fresh fish on the docks and loads of tropical fruits and vegetables filling the streets. Some say this is also the ‘Vegas’ of the Caribbean, when the lights and casinos come to life after dark!
