Cruising the Caribbean: Paradise With Many Faces

Cruising the Caribbean: The Caribbean is a famous and beloved destination for many. When you plan your Caribbean cruise vacation you may be faced with the problem of what island to choose? Well, have no fear as all of them are quite unique and have their own face. Having spent about 6 months on a Caribbean cruise vacation, believe me when I say, it’s a nice diversity to dive into. So, if it’s your first time on Caribbean cruise vacation, the best way to explore it is via a cruise liner. This way,you get to see several islands at once and get to make more or less a clear impression of its diversity and beauty.
So let’s start cruising!
On my Caribbean cruise vacation, I cruised with Princess Cruises and was very satisfied with the company! Their ship, Caribbean Princess is new, comfortable,and has everything you need for the perfect Caribbean cruise vacation: restaurants,pool,cinema,shops you name it!

Normally,the cruise departs from San Juan, Puerto Rico which is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen! Washed by the Atlantic ocean and the Caribbean Sea, it is very vibrant and colorful with a nice old fort to visit and very friendly people. San Juan is also very modern and at the same time historical. It’s love at the first site!
During your Caribbean cruise vacation,when you go cruising the islands,you’ll be surprised to see how different each island is. Each island is marked by different colonial influences like the Dutch, Spanish,and British etc. Each has its own landscape for example, Barbados is very flat with amazing white beaches so, be careful when sunbathing there because, it’s super easy to get sunburn. Grenada is mountainous with amazing rainforests. Be sure to visit them and also check the great waterfalls. Also, be prepared for the differences of each island. Some may strike you as odd with their old shabby houses and very poor inhabitants: St. Lucia, Grenada,and Tortola… The others are more prosperous and suited for the Tourist who loves comfort and the finer things in life: Aruba, Bonaire…

Local cuisine is very tasty,delicious,and fresh with lots of seafood and obviously nutmeg that grows all over the islands. On your Caribbean cruise vacation, you can drink amazing coconut water right from the shell. They are sold right on the street and costs about $2.
Although, the food is quite simple,delicious,and filling, one can find lots of small cafes and restaurants. Still, prices depend on the island and location but generally, you can always find something decent and cheap.
Let’s not forget the beaches. One word-paradise! You will get a chance to experience something exotic if you haven’t. For example, in Grenada, there are black sand beaches which are made from lava but, the best white beaches are in Barbados. You’ll be surprised to see huge turtles swimming along side you when you go swimming. It’s amazing! You can also go canoeing in mangrove trees! While on your Caribbean cruise vacation, you can take advantage of amazing snorkeling in Aruba. In addition, this place is great for shopping as it is one of the most modern islands!
Always book an excursion on the ship. It’s much better and comfortable than looking for something on the island! Shopping for souvenirs can be very overwhelming as the Caribbean islands have so much to offer. There are lots of markets with souvenirs so, I suggest you shop there! Don’t forget the cigars and rum! It’s much better to buy the alcohol on the ship as, it’s cheaper there and you can be sure of its quality!

So, when planning your Caribbean cruise vacation, whatever island you choose, you will find yourself in a true paradise with many unique traditions and surprises available. It’s a place where you want to return over and over again. Cruise the Caribbean, the paradise with many faces!

However, many people make the mistake of trying to fit all of the attractions into their itinerary. Remember when you are planning you only have 24 hours in a day. Using a few planning strategies can help you to get the most out of your family travel.

      Start by prioritizing your theme park attractions by identifying which are the most important for you to visit and which are the least important. For an individual or couple, this may be an easier task than for a family. For families, if there are varying opinions of what is most important then allow everyone to take a list of the park attractions and prioritize them according to their interests. Allow everyone the opportunity to visit their top priority and plan the trip around those.

      Take the highest priority theme park attractions and learn about all there is to do and see. Decide how long you would need to visit to see and do everything. Some of the attractions during your family trip may require more than one day. If your trip is short and you are not able to spend more than one day at the attractions, prioritize what is most important to do the day that you do visit.


      Plan your day. There are times when the unexpected happen or you may spend a little longer time at certain
      national park attractions. So always preplan for an entire day so you will not feel rushed. Families can plan some days with everyone together and some days with the family split up to accommodate the time it may take to visit every city park attraction.
