Western Caribbean Cruises

Half Moon Cay, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and many more luscious locales await on Western Caribbean cruises. Relax and soak in the sun or embark on a thrilling, can’t-do-anywhere-else excursion that you’ll remember forever. Meet stingrays or rent a cabana on Half Moon Cay, our private island. Float a bamboo raft down a river in Jamaica. Go under the surface in a submarine off Grand Cayman to see rare marine life. The best time to visit the Western isles on a cruise is between December through April, when the weather is perfect and there’s very little rain. Conveniently depart from Ft. Lauderdale on 7-day Western Caribbean cruises or take a longer cruise that links two Caribbean regions. Paradise was never lost; it’s right here in the Western Caribbean.

There’s nowhere like Half Moon Cay, our crescent-shaped private island in the Bahamas. Porthole Cruise Magazine’s named Half Moon Cay a Best Private Island for two decades consecutively. Sugary sand and miles of impossibly blue lagoon waters make it a continued favorite.

Georgetown, Cayman Islands

Between the celebrity chefs who’ve set up shop on Grand Cayman and the 135 or so resident nationalities that season the island’s giant melting pot, this is one of the best places to eat in the Caribbean. Nosh on cassava cake, conch stew or spicy Cayman-style lobster.

Key West, Florida, US

Colorful wooden houses, tangerine sunsets, and the constant crowing of roosters are the first things you’ll notice on your Key West cruise. Key West relishes a laid-back lifestyle, except for hundreds of noisy birds roaming freely and lively Duval street nightlife.
