Caribbean FAQs

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.
