This is the season to cruise the Caribbean and our eagle eyed readers may have noticed that we’ve given the sun-soaked islands some serious love on our blog this month.
We have chilled to a calypso beat with Caribbean music, whet your appetite with national dishes, and even shared our tips on top selfie locations, and we thought we’d round it all off with our top Caribbean cruise deals.
Last minute Caribbean deals are extremely popular especially when they are on an ‘all inclusive’ basis but have you stopped to consider what a Caribbean cruise offers in comparison?
If not, you could be in for a nice surprise…
Here are some reasons why we believe that a Caribbean cruise offers so much more than a Caribbean land-based holiday;
Why visit just one Caribbean island?
Does anyone fancy a last minute holiday to Barbados? What about St Lucia? Perhaps you might prefer Antigua?
They are all wonderful locations and each would provide a wonderful holiday location but how about seeing all 3 of them (and more) during the same holiday?
We recently scoured the market for last minute Caribbean holidays across the Internet and we found Barbados, Antigua, Jamaica and St Lucia amongst the offerings.
Choose your destination and you’ll spend 7 days there…in the same hotel; with the same sights; and the same food; and the same beaches.
Or you could book a last minute Caribbean cruise and experience numerous destinations in one holiday. You could find yourself starting your adventure in Bridgetown, Barbados, before heading on to the volcanic island of St Vincent and then taking in the natural beauty of Dominica. St Lucia and Antigua as well as spending a day among the warm waters and lush plantations of St Kitts.
Next on your itinerary is Grand Turk where colonial architecture and exceptional diving awaits. From Grand Turk you will cruise to Tortola, a place considered by many as the crème de la crème of the Caribbean.
Finally you will sail to magical St Maarten, before returning to Bridgetown and your flight home.
Why limit your holiday to 7 nights?
7 nights is a nice little break. 10 nights is even better as it gives you a bit more time to settle in, however, 14 nights is surely the optimum duration?
With a last minute Caribbean cruise deal you will enjoy 14 nights and pay about the same as you would for a 7 night land-based Caribbean holiday.
Here is a selection of the late Caribbean deals we found including a P&O Cruises Caribbean cruise;
Compare the above with our late P&O Cruises Caribbean deals starting at £899 with an extra £100 giving you stunning views of Caribbean ports from the comfort of your very own balcony.
You will enjoy 14 nights experiencing relaxing sea days; ocean vistas; fine dining; sightseeing; beach hopping; warm turquoise waters, island culture and world-class entertainment…sound good?
From Michelin-starred chefs, to afternoon tea and even chips; a cruise opens up a world of delectable dining. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in a choice of main restaurants, go mad in the buffet after a long day of sightseeing or follow a relaxing spa session with a delicious afternoon tea. It’s all included in the price. Special occasions are best celebrated with dinner at one of the speciality restaurants on board, where world-renowned chefs deliver incredible menus for a lot less than you would pay in their restaurants back home.
Days relaxing on palm-fringed beaches are best followed with dazzling West-End style performances or rousing live music. Sea days are spent brushing up on your skills at the sports court or soaking up the sun around of several pools. With cinemas, dance classes, cookery demonstrations, cabaret, comedy clubs and stunning spa facilities, you will never be bored between destinations.
