Southern Caribbean Cruises

Venture into the Southern 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 10- to 21-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.
