Top Caribbean Cruise Lines

Top Caribbean Cruise Lines
Cruising is an excellent, popular way to travel. Cruise lines offer gourmet food, exciting shore excursions, high-quality entertainment, plus on-board casinos, shopping and fun. For travelers looking to hike through the rainforests and trails of the Caribbean, all major cruise lines offer sailings to the three parts of the area: western, eastern and southern. Tour cities such as Antigua, Trinidad, St. Martin and Tulum, then return on board for fitness classes, a walking track, dance lessons and more. The following major cruise lines offer short and/or long sailings to all areas of the Caribbean.

Carnival Cruise Line

Carnival's "Fun Ships" provide endless on-ship entertainment while at sea. Enjoy their top-level walking trail, fitness center and classes along with dining, entertainment and shopping. Got kids? Carnival provides age-appropriate programs for children of all ages that will keep them busy making new friends and trying new activities.

Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean passengers enjoy being catered to on board and excitement in port. Passengers have access to Labadee, a floating Aqua Park reserved solely for Royal Caribbean guests. Four types of staterooms are available to suit any budget: a suite/deluxe offers adjoining rooms, private balconies and its own bar. The balcony rooms offer guests a way to enjoy the beautiful seas right from their cabin, complete with two deck chairs and a small table. Oceanview rooms give cruisers a porthole or window view onto the passing scenery, while interior staterooms provide budget-minded travelers the lowest priced option, a room inside the halls of the ship without a view.

Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian offers guests something different: freestyle dining. Guests may choose when and where to eat and whether to join other parties or dine on their own (other cruise lines match you with tables of eight to 10 people for the length of your cruise). If your hiking partner is also a romantic partner, Norwegian can provide wedding, honeymoon and romance couples packages. Offerings include couples' private massages, in-room strawberries and champagne, private photo sessions, breakfast in bed and a romantic dinner in the ship's gourmet restaurant, Le Bistro.
