Our stunning destinations.
It’s said this island gem has 365 beaches - one for every day of the year! Take a stroll around Nelson’s Dockyard or admire the super-yachts in English Harbour.
Constant trade winds and balmy weather make this a premier wind- and kite-surfing destination. Take a spin on a banana boat, discover pristine Eagle Beach or snorkel at Mangel Halto reef.
A Caribbean ‘Little England’ - except this one comes with emerald seas and warm breezes! Visit the Jacobean plantation house, St. Nicholas Abbey, or snorkel through the shipwrecks at Carlisle Bay.
It’s hardly surprising that flamingos flock here and license plates carry the moniker ‘Divers Paradise’. Get out on the water yourself and try kayaking, scuba-diving or snorkelling at Lac Bay.
Besides being one of the most scenic islands in the Caribbean, Tortola offers a decidedly cultural and historical side. The Virgin Islands Folk Museum is a great example.
You’ll remember the genteel Dutch feel and waterfront buildings of Willemstad long after you’ve left. Browse the port’s floating market and meet the Swinging Old Lady – a bridge that opens for ships.
Access the interior of Dominica via an extensive network of nature and hiking trails, which will take you on an odyssey through the lush landscape past waterfalls and bubbling hot springs.
A beautiful horseshoe-shaped harbour welcomes you to the fragrant ‘Isle of Spice’. Tour nutmeg plantations, sample diverse cuisine, or simply laze on the white sands of Grand Anse Beach.
The local flavours and rolling hills of Fort de France simply ooze charm. There’s so much history here in the narrow streets, wrought-iron balconies and shuttered doors.
The Caribbean’s first French town, Basseterre has a rich colonial past. Take a scenic train trip, snorkel with the pelicans or simply chill to the sound of reggae with a coconut cocktail.
This lively port is a bargain hunter’s delight. Journey beyond to Soufrière and view volcanic plugs known as the Pitons, then bathe in hot mineral springs at Diamond Falls Botanic Gardens.
This is an island with a split personality. Start your day lazing on Orient Beach, then cross the island to the French capital, Marigot, with its chic shops and sidewalk cafés.
The capital of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Kingstown lies on the Southwestern coast. The famous Botanical Garden is the oldest one in the Western hemisphere, incorporating 20 acres of gardens.
The past still echoes on in this lush West Indies jewel, the haunt of Blackbeard the pirate and Drake. Take advantage of the unrivalled duty-free shopping and sun-soaked beaches.
Escape to paradise and the charms of ‘Big Island’, ringed by beaches of all shapes and sizes. Attractions like the bioluminescent cove at Salt River Bay make it hard to leave!
King’s Wharf has a London feel, but with carefree Bahamas weather and soft pink beaches! You’ll find priceless Chinese porcelain salvaged from shipwrecks on display at the National Museum.
Grand Cayman’s largest island is the perfect spot to soak up the sun and unwind. At Stingray City, you can snorkel, scuba dive, or handfeed friendly stingrays.
Sea, sun, sand… it wouldn’t be a stretch to call Punta Cana, located on the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, a tropical paradise. The sunsets here are like nowhere else.
Haiti is a mountainous island, blanketed in exotic and tropical foliage. Beautiful and secluded Labadee serves as a picturesque playground for water-lovers, whether you want to relax or try something new.
Hulking Spanish forts with dungeons ripe for exploration guard the beautifully preserved Old City. Lose yourself in its warren of cobbled streets, full with cafés and shady squares.
In the 18th century, Jamaican sugar fuelled the rum trade. Falmouth was one of the world's busiest ports. Today, it’s a serene haven; palm trees dance in the light breeze.
Many visitors to Ocho Rios enjoy a hike up Dunn's River Falls, where you'll travel up limestone steps hidden beneath the rushing water. Stop along the way for a dip!
With famous beaches, fantastic shopping and underwater adventures in the clearest water in the world, it's not surprising that Grand Bahama Island is the second most popular destination in the Bahamas.
Long after you return home, you'll continue to hear the sweet reverberations of Bahamian steel drums, their carefree melodies transporting you back to Nassau, where you're perpetually on holiday.

Answering your questions about the Caribbean.
Wondering what to pack for your Caribbean cruise? Or perhaps what the local cuisine is like? Don’t worry – we’ve got all of the answers to your need-to-know questions.
Life is good in the Caribbean, where sunshine is pretty much guaranteed, and relaxing is a way of life. There are also countless islands to explore – on a cruise with us, we’ll bring you to a new port every day, showcasing the very best that the Caribbean has to offer. Our guests also love Caribbean cruises because of their diversity – one day you could be admiring colourful colonial architecture and immersing yourself in fascinating history, then the next, lazing on a white sand beach among the swaying palms. Add in delectable local cuisine, and the Caribbean is the postcard perfect holiday destination you’ve been dreaming of.
On a Caribbean cruise, you’ll get to experience the distinct culture and flavour of each island without having to worry about the planning or logistics. What’s more, when you’re not soaking up the sun or exploring, you’ll have the comfort of your ship to return to. There’s so much to do in the Caribbean – from finding your zen with yoga retreats to family friendly activities.
Make the most of the Caribbean’s rich marine life by snorkelling along the coasts of Aruba or the Cayman Islands. Culture vultures will love Nelson’s Dockyard – a marina dating back to the 1700s on Antigua and Barbuda. Don’t miss the colourful colonial buildings in Kingston and Georgetown. Mouth-watering cuisine awaits in Barbados, while in the Bahamas you can head out on the water to explore an archipelago of over 700 islands.
Keep yourself cool in the Caribbean heat with plenty of shorts and T-shirts. It’s a good idea to bring some tops with sleeves to protect your shoulders during the hottest part of the day, as well as sunglasses and a sunhat. Don’t forget your swimming gear for those beach days. It can get cooler in the evening, so it’s a good idea to bring some long-sleeved layers and lightweight trousers.

The Caribbean straddles two time-zones – Eastern Standard Time and Atlantic Standard Time. These are GMT-5 and GMT-4 respectively. Cuba, the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, the Bahamas and Haiti observe Eastern Standard Time while the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands observe Atlantic Standard Time.
Although dishes vary from island to island, traditional Caribbean food is typically hearty, spicy and fruity. Barbados is known for its fusion food, combining British, Creole, Indian and African influences to create mouth-watering dishes such as flying fish and cou cou (the national dish) and pudding and souse. Meanwhile, Puerto Rican dishes often start with sofrito, a rich and fragrant blend of tomatoes, peppers and herbs. Jamaica is where you can try crowd-pleasing favourites like jerk chicken and fried plantain. The Caribbean is also famous for its rum.
The Caribbean islands are generally considered safe places to visit.
