A Cruise in the Caribbean - Once in a Lifetime Opportunity

Aug 17, 2007
Going on a Caribbean cruise is certainly one of the finest ways of spending ones holidays. But it is always a good idea to have some knowledge of the places you intend to visit beforehand when you go on a Caribbean cruise. It goes without saying that the on-board activities would keep you busy and would never let you get bored of sailing but in addition to it, you must also keep in mind the ways you are going to spend time when you stop at different stops. Let us have a look at some of the best islands where you would land while on your Caribbean cruise.

St. Croix

It is on the Eastern side of the Caribbean. St. Croix is located in the Virgin Islands and for people with sporty tastes, it is virtually a paradise. You can go kayaking here. And yes, if you want to feel some history playing in front of you, have a look at the place where Christopher Columbus landed.

St. Thomas

When you are in the Virgin Island, how can you miss visiting St. Thomas? It is by far the best place to go for snorkeling at the Cinnamon Bay National Park. And why should you do that. Well for the simple reason that nature has kept the surrounding waters of St. Thomas very shallow and you can easily see all types of marine creatures here. And that is some experience to have.

Grenada

This is some island to visit no doubt. The hurricane Ivan completely devastated this island in the year 2004, yet it is still the place to be when you are on a Caribbean cruise. For the ones who live some underwater adventure, you can't get a better place for scuba diving. The place is full of great under-water sights. The presence of a number of underwater volcanoes as well as a lot of myriad colored tropical fish make the day of scuba divers.

Jamaica

Jamaica is also one such great places to be during your Caribbean cruise. See to it that you don't miss a visit to Jamaica at any cost. Bustling markets of Jamaica is a well known sight here. For adventure seekers, there is Bamboo rafting to pump the adrenaline.

Puerto Rico

You must have heard of Conado Beach. It is perhaps one of the most famous beaches in the world. Puerto Rico is certainly worth a visit for all you on Caribbean cruise.

Aruba

Aruba is certainly a place worth visiting. Even though it is a small island in the Dutch Antilles, yet it boasts of over one year worth of beaches, 365 beaches. So, even if you have to spend a year here, you would find one new beach to relax and take in sun, every day. Not without reason, Aruba is considered the paradise island.
