Why choose a Caribbean Cruise?
The Caribbean islands are the definition of an idyllic tropical escape. Many visitors dream of white sandy beaches fringed with palms, crystal clear waters, historic waterways and bustling towns, but rainforests, dormant volcanoes, colourful reefs, creole cuisine and toe-tapping music are also thrown into the mix. A Caribbean cruise provides the best way to explore this melting pot of cultural influences, with each island of this extensive archipelago carrying its own individual charm.

Our Favourite Caribbean Cruise Destinations
Fred. Olsen's Caribbean Cruises typically take in the islands of St Kitts, Antigua and Barbados, and include gems such as St. Vincent, Jamaica and Tortola. Each itinerary allows you to get beneath the surface of this incredible region, with authentic experiences such as opportunities to gain an insight into the life of a cocoa farmer in Grenada and try your hand at harvesting cocoa beans; assist communities in Dominica; and visit schools in St Lucia, to make a valuable contribution to the local community. Of course, there are chance to top-up your tan on golden sands, watch sublime sunsets and sip on well-earned tropical cocktails too, with plenty of time to unwind.
Things to do in the Caribbean
For those in search of something more active it’s also brimming with things to see and do. Uncovering legendary tales of pirates on Tortola; riding the St Kitts Sugar Train; diving in search of sea turtles off the coast of Barbados; hiking through the botanical wonderland of easy-going Basseterre; or marvelling at bubbling mud pools and hot springs of St Lucia’s stunning Pitons area – all this and more awaits discovery.
The Caribbean is a paradise of pristine shores and sapphire seas, exotic marine life and laid-back culture, and a cruise hopping around its islands ensures life doesn't get any better than this.
