Fabulous Cruises in the Caribbean


Caribbean cruises are as popular now as they have always been, especially for those seeking some winter sun escape from a gloomy and cold UK.

The islands offer something for everyone and with a variety of itineraries taking in the east, south and west, there’s something out there for everyone. Numerous cruise lines offer sailings of between 4 and 14 nights as standard, but there are also a few that offer longer no-fly options from UK ports, including Southampton.

If embarking on a cruise ship overseas for your Caribbean sailing, the most popular embarkation ports include Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Barbados, and New York – making a cruise and land stay another option.

Caribbean cruises with included flights

We always recommend you speak with a member of our cruise expert team in order to tailor-make your Caribbean cruise holiday, but for those looking for something easy, we offer a wide variety of sailings that include flights from UK airports.

P&O Cruises’ newest ship, Arvia, offers many 7-night options with flights from the UK to Barbados and these are hugely popular with UK cruisers. There’s also the option to double up and do a 14-night sailing by booking two 7-night sailings back to back – should you want more than 7 days in the sunshine.

Caribbean destination highlights 

The Caribbean offers a wealth of fun and interesting things to do and some of our favourite ports include:


For sun-kissed golden beaches, look no further than Antigua. The island has a great vibe, reliable cab options and some good shopping opportunities. It’s also home to Nelson’s Dockyard and offers incredible island views from the Shirley Heights lookout point.


Another island with beautiful beaches and one that’s always popular is Carlisle Bay. Barbados is also a great place to look beneath the surface on one of the island’s submarine adventures.

St Lucia

St Lucia offers some fantastic tropical adventures deep inside the rainforest and we highly recommend this experience if you want a beach day-break. There’s also Marigot Bay on offer, Pigeon Island National Park, and Rodney Bay.


Jamaica offers everything from out-of-this-world beaches to amazing food – you can’t visit Jamaica without trying authentic jerk chicken! Popular ports here include Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. Watersports are always high on the top to-do list in Jamaica, thanks to a wealth of natural waterways and falls.

St Kitts

This volcanic island offers its visitors something a little more rugged and some fantastic scenery, which is often enjoyed via the St Kitts Scenic Railway. If you’re in need of some retail therapy, St Kitts has one of the largest shopping options within the islands and offers everything from flip flops to local produce.


Located in the Bahamas, Nassau is one of the biggest tourist hot spots and is far more commercial than some other destinations, but nevertheless, it has plenty to offer visitors, including Cabbage Beach and Clifton Heritage National Park.

Wherever you decide to go and whatever you decide to do, the Caribbean will not disappoint. In fact, you’ll probably find yourself craving more because there’s so much to immerse yourself in.
