Southern Caribbean Cruises

Venture into the Caribbean for secluded islands laden with colorful cultures

Travel deeper into the Caribbean on the road less traveled to discover exotic landscapes brimming with natural, unspoiled beauty and unique plant and animal species native to the region. Here you’ll venture further into the Caribbean to more remote islands like Dominica, teeming with lush rainforests, waterfalls, rare birds and wildlife as well as the spice island of Grenada, one of the world's major producers of nutmeg, mace, clove, cinnamon and cocoa. Imagine aquamarine seas ablaze with brightly colored coral reefs and schools of technicolor fish, breathtaking national parks, botanical gardens and world-renowned beaches in places like Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao. With 7- to 20-day sailings roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale, plus one-way cruises options from New York, a Southern Caribbean cruise offers a rich and unique port variety balanced by peaceful, relaxing days at sea.

Southern Caribbean Cruise Highlights

Southern Caribbean Islands | Princess Cruises

Islands Gems

The Southern Caribbean is perhaps best known for its "ABC Islands":  Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, though Dominica and the spice island of Grenada are equally beautiful as they are popular.
Southern Caribbean History & Culture | Princess Cruises

History & Culture

Dutch influence and native culture live side by side in this diverse region. Grenada is famed for its historic spice plantations, Bonaire's former slave huts and salt pans share a trying past, and Curaçao's celebrated Willemstad district — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — boasts traditional Dutch architecture infused with the color and spirit of the Caribbean.
Southern Caribbean Natural Wonders | Princess Cruises

Natural Wonders

Relax in Dominica's hot springs, swim amid Grenada's remarkable Annandale Falls, explore the reefs of Bonaire — a world-class diving and snorkeling destination with several marine life preserves — and gaze in awe at the twisted divi-divi trees of Aruba's Arikok National Park.
