St Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
The largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix has it all, from gorgeous natural scenery begging to be explored, to quaint colonial towns perfect for wandering. It used to be nicknamed the “Garden of the Antilles” because of its lush fields of sugarcane and the sugar mills that date back to the 18th century, which are still popular hotspots. But these days, it’s world-class dive sites like Salt River Canyon, powdery beaches like Cane Bay, and rainforests filled with tropical wildlife that keep people coming back. Plus, award-winning rum of course. Cruise to St. Croix and discover plenty of Victorian Dutch architecture and charming colonial churches in Frederiksted and Christiansted.
Fun Things to Do:
- Check out the hard to miss yellow brick Fort Christiansvaern in Christiansted for a vivid history lesson, it’s the best preserved Danish built fort in the Virgin Islands. You can also visit an art galley and several historical exhibits in Frederiksted’s Fort Frederik.
- There’s no shortage of interesting dive shops in either Christiansted or Frederiksted. But the best places to shop in St. Croix are the duty-free shops offering jewelry, liquor, clothing and souvenirs.
- St. Croix’s culinary scene is as diverse as its landscape. Stop in at any small local eatery and you’ll find fresh seafood dishes, like Cruzan Style Gundy (balls of ground herring and spices), that nod to French, Thai and Dutch cuisine, with plenty of West Indian spice and favorites like conch fritters. You’ll also find boardwalk bars serving traditional American fare, like hamburgers and rum punch.
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. If you’re after a little rest and relaxation during your cruise to St. Maarten, you’ll find plenty of secluded beaches where you can work on your suntan before treating your taste buds to some of the best cuisine in the Caribbean.
Fun Things to Do:
- Loterie Farm is a nature sanctuary with 135 acres of hiking trails, a zip line adventure course, and a spring fed multi-level pool with cascading waterfalls.
- Hike to the top of Mount Concordia, which marks the border between the French and Dutch sides of the island, for the best views of both sides.
- Head to Front Street in Philipsburg, the capital of Dutch St. Maarten, and shop your way down a mile of duty-free stores. Before you go, pick up some famous guavaberry liqueur at the Sint Maarten Guavaberry Company.
Castries, St. Lucia
From dramatic landscapes molded by ancient volcanoes, to sparkling palm-fringed beaches, St. Lucia is known for its amazing Caribbean beauty. Luxury resorts nestle up to the natural beauty, giving this island just the right touch of exclusivity.
Fun Things to Do:
- Melt away your cares in the town of Soufriere, home to Sulphur Springs and known for its medicinal waters since the 1600s. Soak in natural thermal pools at the bottom of the bubbling craters and relax while indulging in a therapeutic mineral mud bath from head to toe.
- Make your way to Marigot Bay, a gorgeous natural harbor straight out of a movie scene, dotted with restaurants, bars and shops. You can stroll the yacht marina, shop at boutiques, visit a French bakery or relax at the secluded beach, accessible by ferry.
- The best duty-free shops are at Pointe Seraphine cruise terminal and across the harbor at La Place Carenage. Cruise to St. Lucia and find duty-free jewelry, watches, perfume, crystal, rum, and local crafts.
You’ll find Bridgetown strikes a fine mix of island warmth and English heritage. Stately colonial buildings intermingle with colorful wooden homes, open-air markets, and catch-of-the-day cafes. Outside of the bustle of “Town,” as the locals call it, Barbados is a new kind of paradise in any direction with pink-and-white-sand beaches that stretch on endlessly and crystal clear turquoise waters. The center of the island, you’ll find rolling hills and valleys, sugarcane fields and historic plantations.
Fun Things to Do:
- Take a solar-powered tram journey 170 feet below ground into Harrison’s Cave, an intricate limestone cave system. Here, you’ll find flowing streams, waterfalls, emerald-hued pools, unusual stalactite formations, and towering columns that formed over thousands of years.
- Sit back and relax on the powdery white sands of Harbour Lights on Carlisle Bay Beach. If kicking back with a rum punch in hand is a little too laid-back, you can snorkel around shipwrecks, rent a jet ski, or even visit Tortuga to swim with turtles.
- For the best deals on duty-free luxury items and authentic souvenirs from the island, check out the shops in the cruise terminal and the stores along Broad Street, the main street in Bridgetown. Cruise to Barbados and bring home a taste of the island with a rum cake, which is called ‘great cake’ for a reason.
Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis
Greens in every shade spring from the rolling hills of St. Kitts, an island ripe with eco-tourism adventures. In the port city of Basseterre, you’ll find centuries of history to explore in impressive estates and photo-worthy monuments like the Brimstone Hill Fortress, one of the best preserved military structures in the Americas.
Fun Things to Do:
- For a taste of nightlife while the sun is still shining, head to 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, double-decker railcars that travel along a line built a century ago to transport sugarcane across the island. You’ll pass historical estates and countryside filled with tall wild sugarcane.
- Casual beach spots with super-fresh seafood are your best bet for lunch. Order some spiny lobster or conch grilled over an open fire. More adventurous eaters should try West Indian specialties like pepper pot, arawak chicken and goat water stew. For a quick snack, vendors sell sugarcane stalks to chew on.
