Why go on a Caribbean cruise holiday? Because, once paradise has been discovered, it can never be forgotten. The Caribbean, with its sugar-soft beaches, turquoise seas and gently swaying palms, is one of the world's best-loved holiday destinations. Ashore, choose between bustling local markets, or escape it all on a seemingly endless, deserted beach. On board, tropical themed party nights will have you dancing under the stars as you cruise to your next port of call. With so many beautiful and diverse islands, there is always somewhere or something new to explore. The Caribbean really is made for cruise holidays. From Barbados and Antigua to St. Lucia and Mayreau, a wealth of hidden treasures including historic harbours, lush tropical forests and characterful towns are waiting.
