Selecting the Best Caribbean Cruise Itinerary
Caribbean cruises offer a couple of cruise itineraries that voyagers can choose from. Experience first hand the exquisite haven of the Caribbean surrounded by turquoise waters and white sands, and island adventures. The islands in the Eastern Caribbean region are closely situated near each other so cruisers have more time to spend on land than on sea plus you get to indulge in endless water and beach fun activities. The Western Caribbean cruise is a fusion of Spanish history, great shopping, and some beach fun though cruisers get to have more time on the sea than on shore since the islands are a bit farther apart. Jump into a whole new world of virgin rain forest and gardens, volcano terrains, and a preview of Indian and French culture that make up the interesting Southern Caribbean Route. Whatever route the traveler prefers and chooses the important part is that you get value for your money and enjoy the cruise.

These cruises almost always include ports of call at Bahamas, Puerto Rico with San Juan, St. John, St. Thomas, St. Martin or St. Maarten and the British and American Virgin Islands. Cruise season is usually December to April with cheap rates during the summer months. Remember to avoid sailing during the months of hurricanes and storms which is from June to November.
