Caribbean cruises excel in weak-at-the-knees scenery. The region’s 7,000 islands sweep across the Caribbean Sea, all the way from the Florida Keys to Venezuela. Flawless white beaches are something they all have in common. Whether you drop anchor in Aruba, St Lucia or Guadeloupe, you’ll be greeted with icing sugar sands lapped by sparkling blue waves.
With this comes a world-class diving scene. You can nose around an ancient shipwreck off Grand Turk’s shores, come face-to-face with turtles in Barbados, or swim with stingrays in the Cayman Islands. The swimming pigs of the Bahamas deserve a mention, too. And cruise holidays to Dominica are perfect for snapping sperm whales – it’s the only place in the world where they live all-year-round.
Venture away from the water and you’ll find each has its own unique flavour, too. The Dutch Island of Curacao looks like it belongs in a colouring book, while Jamaica is the spot for rum cocktails and reggae. Over in Cuba’s Havana, expect crumbling colonial buildings, late-night salsa bars, and vintage Cadillacs on every corner. Meanwhile, under-the-radar St Maarten’s 400-odd restaurants have earned it a reputation as a culinary capital.
If you want to spend a little longer on an idyllic isle, book a Cruise & Stay holiday to the Caribbean. This way, you can top up your tan with a beach break before or after your cruise. You can stay at our luxe TUI SENSATORI resorts in the Dominican Republic and Jamaica, or one of our beachfront hotels in Barbados.
