Why Cruise the Caribbean?
The Caribbean Islands possess a wealth of activities for visitors of all interests and ages. This region's histories and cities are fascinating—from the ancient Mayan city of Tulum on the Yucatan Peninsula to the Altun Ha ruins near Belize City. Hear the legends of Aruban gold, Jamaican voodoo, or the origins of St. Maarten's half-French-half-Dutch culture. Each island has its own incredible story, and with Princess Cruises you can hear them all.
Fish, Fowl & Butterflies
Take a Caribbean cruise with Princess and visit Antigua's Great Bird Island, one of the Caribbean's most significant bird sanctuaries; Dominica's Champagne Reef for excellent snorkeling and the Island of Cozumel's Palancar Reef to swim with the dolphins; plus Aruba's Butterfly Farm's millions of fluttering specimens.
Centuries Old Growth
See teak, cannonball and mahogany trees that are more than 200 years old at St. Vincent's Botanical Gardens or San Juan's "El Yunque," a 28,000-acre preserve, and the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System. And, for hundreds of varieties of rare orchids, don't miss Barbados' Orchid World on your Caribbean cruise with Princess.
Princess Cruises' private beach resort is an all-around playground for water sports of all kinds, including a special area just for kids. Check out everything from seaboards and aqua bikes to Hobie Cats, Sunfish sailboats and transparent hull kayaks.
The Caribbean is a shopper's paradise. On your Caribbean cruise you can head to St. Maarten's Front Street, Grenada's St. George Harbor or the Venezuelan village of Tacuantar for local crafts. For fine leather, cameras, jewelry and art, the U.S. Virgin Island's Charlotte Amalie and San Juan's Condado and Isla Verde are your best bets.
