Destinations for a Caribbean Cruise

Guest post by Ashley Jennings

A cruise can be a fun and memorable trip that should be experienced at least once. Although there are many possible destinations, the Caribbean remains one of the most popular. This is mainly due to the warm weather and pristine beaches. The Caribbean islands are also close together, which allows vacationers to see multiple locations during their trip. Along with the beaches, varieties of activities are available such as water sports, dining and the nightlife. St. Lucia, Martinique, and St. Thomas are three locations to consider visiting. If you are looking to book a cruise to the Caribbean with a fixed budget, you may want to consider using a travel agency such as Liberty Travel. You can still get great deals by planning the trip yourself, but be sure to research the different cruise lines to ensure you get the best price.

Because of the popularity of Caribbean cruises, many cruise lines travel to the Caribbean Islands. This helps reduce the stress of planning a cruise, since many vacation packages should be available. The temperature is also warm year round and it is usually between 75 and 85 degrees.

St. Lucia is a volcanic island that is well known for its natural beauty. The landscape of St. Lucia consists of rain forests, mountains, volcanoes, and sandy beaches. This island is also a popular honeymoon destination, where you can relax at your own secluded beach.

Martinique is considered one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. The island of Martinique is like a smaller version of France. This beautiful island consists of a landscape with black sandy beaches, high mountains, and rain forests.

St. Thomas is part of the US Virgin Islands and US citizens do not need a passport. This island has many benefits for the cruise ship passenger, including some of the best shopping destinations. You can also go scuba diving, fishing, or you can relax on the beaches during your stay at this island. St Thomas is one of the busiest ports in the world, and because of the popularity of this cruise destination, you are sure to find some discount cruises to fit your budget.

A cruise to the Caribbean can provide you with the perfect atmosphere to relax, shop or to enjoy the warm weather. If you are planning a trip to the Caribbean, you may want to consider visiting the islands of St. Lucia, Martinique, or St. Thomas.

I was going to work in St Lucia but never got there. Now I am wondering why I didn't get myself there.

@emma: Looks like a small piece of heaven for a place to work.

I have not traveled much in the Caribbean. St. Lucia looks like a good choice. Appreciate the information.

@donna: Me either, which is why guest posts on the area are nice. As a cruiser, maybe this is one for a future holiday?

I've lived in two places in the Caribbean, including St. Thomas, but have never, ever taken a cruise. Think I'd be happier just going to one of these places and wandering around for a few days.
