San Juan, Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is one of the largest islands in the Eastern Caribbean. Discover the classic signs of a vacationer’s paradise on one of our many cruises to Puerto Rico: gorgeous landscape with lush green mountains, underground caves, balmy waters, white-sandy beaches, delicious rum drinks and so much more. As one of the first cities to be established in the New World, Old San Juan is filled with history for you to uncover.
Fun Things to Do:
- Learn more about Puerto Rico’s Spanish roots at the Castillo San Felipe del Morro. This UNESCO World Heritage site was built in the 16th-century in Old San Juan and faces the open sea.
- Take a tour of the Bacardi headquarters and learn about the process of rum making all the way from the barrel to the bottle.
- Uncover unique travel treasures to take home with you such as woven hammocks, percussion instruments, artisan crafts, island photography books or local coffee and rum. The best souvenir shopping can be found in Old San Juan.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
What makes St. Maarten so unique is its blend of cultures. The island is home to 120 different nationalities speaking over 80 languages, and is governed by two countries: the Netherlands and France. In fact, it’s the smallest land mass in the world to be shared by two different nations. While it may be less than 40 square miles, there’s plenty to do on this little island whether you’re after action or relaxation.
Fun Things to Do:
- Get your heart pumping at Loterie Farm, a nature sanctuary with 135 acres of hiking trails and a zip line adventure course. After your adventure you can cool off in the spring fed multi-level pool with cascading waterfalls.
- Enjoy the largest saltwater lagoon in the Caribbean. Simpson Bay is a great spot for lounging and watching the boats and yachts that dot its picturesque harbor.
- Explore the coast of St. Maarten on horseback. Follow a series of seaside trails through the landscape and end up riding right into the Caribbean water.
St. Johns, Antigua
Known as "The Nature Island of the Caribbean," Dominica remains an unspoiled paradise for divers, hikers, and naturalists. It is the largest of the Windward Islands and features dramatic volcanic landscapes with the highest mountains in the Eastern Caribbean, lush rainforests, waterfalls, lakes, gorges, rivers, and steamy hot springs. The rugged coastline shelters rustic coastal villages and rocky black-sand beaches, many of which are good snorkeling or diving spots.
Fun Things to Do:
- Visit Champagne Reef where a volcano submerged below the surface pushes gasses up, creating bubbles which make it feel like you’re swimming through a glass of champagne.
- Uncover crafts and souvenirs at the Old Market. This historic market has been a center of action in the capital city of Roseau for more than 300 years.
- Hike through Morne Trois Pitons National Park to sites such as the Boiling Lake, Trafalgar Falls, Emerald Pool and more.
Castries, St. Lucia
From the twin peaks of The Pitons mountains to rainforest and palm-fringed beaches, St. Lucia astounds with dramatic unspoiled scenery. In the capital of Castries touches of French and British heritage can be found throughout, from the architecture to the cuisine.
Fun Things to Do:
- See the rainforest and island vistas from a unique perspective. Ride an open-air gondola that soars high through an ecological park in north St. Lucia. The aerial tram ride is the best way to get up close with native plants and wildlife.
- Melt away your cares in the town of Soufriere, home to Sulfur Springs, known for its medicinal waters since the 1600s. Soak in natural thermal pools at the bottom of bubbling craters or enjoy a therapeutic mineral mud bath.
While it’s justifiably famed for its fantastic beaches, Barbados is an island that has it all. In addition to fine powdery sand and brilliant turquoise bays, there is also a Unesco World Heritage–listed capital, a beautiful interior dotted with gardens, and wild surf on the east coast, all inhabited by a proud and welcoming people.
Fun Things to Do:
- Journey deep beneath the earth at Harrison’s Cave to discover a limestone cavern featuring an amazing array of stalactites, stalagmites and crystal clear subterranean streams.
- Forget your worries and sail away aboard a sleek and spacious catamaran to a sheltered bay to swim and snorkel among peaceful families of Green and Hawksbill Turtles.
- Learn how rum is aged, blended, and bottled at the longest standing rum producer in the world, the Mount Gay Rum Distillery.
Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis
Nestled between the Caribbean and lush mountains, Basseterre has a long history of colonial struggle that is reflected in its architecture and cultural monuments. The breathtaking beaches offer ample snorkeling, windsurfing, diving, sunbathing and golfing opportunities.
Fun Things to Do:
- Hit the Mount Liamuiga trail and trek through towering trees, tangled vines, and tropical flowers to the crater of a dormant volcano. At the peak of your 6-mile ascent, you’ll be rewarded with a view that goes so far, you can see neighboring islands.
- Party the day away at The Strip on South Frigate Bay. This hot spot along the beach is lined with resorts, restaurants and bars with open-air dance floors. Most places open at 10 a.m. and keep the island party vibes going until late night.
- Hop on the West Indies’ last railway and ride double-decker railcars that travel along a line built a century ago to transport sugarcane across the island
