Western Caribbean Cruises

A Western Caribbean cruise glides calm waters to blissful destinations: Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and Cozumel. New 2023-2024 cruises visit bustling Belize City and sublime Roatán, Honduras. Every Western Caribbean cruise includes a stop at Half Moon Cay, our private island where you can meet stingrays, luxuriate in a cabana massage or kayak the protected Bonefish Lagoon. Relax and soak in the sun or embark on thrilling, can’t-do-anywhere-else adventures. Float a bamboo raft down a river in Jamaica. See Grand Cayman’s shimmering reefs from a submarine. Spend the day out on the water aboard a luxury catamaran in Cozumel. Paradise was never lost; it’s right here in the Western Caribbean.
