You can take a Caribbean Cruise - Why Would you NOT?
Cruising the Caribbean is a good way to get a flavour of several islands over a duration of a minimum of 3days. Ships disembark from Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral, Charlestonand New Orleans in the South. This list is non exhaustive and some ships even start out from San Juan in Puerto Rico. You can also leave from suprising destinations like New York! So it's clear you need to keep your mind open and check around a few cruisline companies online.
If you have just 3 days you can expect to only get to Cozumel in Mexico or the Bahamas.
6 days can see you get to a combination of destinations from Key West, Belize, Honduras the Bahamas (Bahamas spots can be the companies private isle) not all included in a single cruise.
If you stay for 7 days you get to choose the rough area from
- Eastern Caribbean
- Western Caribbean
- Southern Caribbean – only visited for Cruises of a length greater than 6 days you get to call at destinations like Roatan, Belize
- Circle the Caribbean sometimes called Exotic Caribbean. These cruises have a selection from all Caribbean destinations and may finish in a new destination. Or greater length may see you pass the Panama Canal! It would not be wise to do a longer Caribbean Cruise if it is your first time.
