Learn more about the ports of call on our Caribbean Getaways before you set sail.
From romantic Bahamas getaways to relaxing Caribbean cruises, relax on sunny beaches and recharge with scenic boat rides along the crystalline waters. Lounge on the golden shores of the Eastern Caribbean, or relive history in the Western Caribbean, where ancient civilizations await. Short cruises to Bahamas ports, — like Princess Cays, — Princess’ Private Island resort — and other nearby islands, allow you to experience relaxation in your own way, whether sunbathing, exploring or making a splash with water activities.
Featured Ports on Caribbean Getaways
- Princess Cays, Bahamas
- Cozumel, Mexico
- Grand Turk
Experience relaxation defined when you arrive at Princess Cays, Princess’ exclusive, private island resort in the Bahamas. Lined with palm trees and white sand, it’s the perfect atmosphere to unwind your way: sip on Caribbean cocktails from your private bungalow, enjoy a range of water activities, or partake in a one-of-a-kind stingray encounter on our short cruises to the Bahamas.
With its dazzling waters, beaches and ancient ruins, it’s easy to see why Mayans believed Cozumel was home to the gods. On Caribbean Getaways, snorkel through coral gardens just off the shore, like Palancar Reef, considered to be the best of its kind in the region. Or learn to prepare regional favorites, including ceviche, dessert tacos and margaritas.
Capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Grand Turk is home to beautiful, uncrowded beaches, Bermudan-British colonial architecture and world-famous coral reefs that surround the six mile long island. Full of turn-of-the-century Caribbean charm, it’s quite a worthwhile stop on a Caribbean getaway cruise. Snorkel in its crystal-clear waters or take in the history of the island at the Grand Turk Lighthouse or other historical sites.
