5 Reasons Why the Caribbean Cruise Holiday is the Best
Close your eyes and imagine a beautiful scenery with palm trees, beaches of white sand and crystal blue water; Paradise huh? Yeah right! The Caribbean is a wonderful place to spend some days in paradise and completely forget about home. The weather is usually not too hot, nor does it ever get colder than 20° C / 68° F. Plus, the palm trees are perfect for hanging up a hammock and snooze. Can it get any better? (not really)
Dive into a new world
Do you enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling or simply enjoy swimming in the ocean? Then the Caribbean cruise holiday is the place for you as the underwater world around the Caribbean islands will fascinate you for sure! In the many riffs; you’ll see corals of all shapes and fishes of all colors. You might just be lucky enough to swim with a turtle or the Caribbean Manatee – this huge sea cow looks clumsy but is indeed a very good swimmer and can do flips or even swim upside down. Watch out!
You can feel the rhythm
The Caribbean has its very own rhythm. You can hear it at every corner on every street. And the amazing part is that it changes from island to island. While you’ll mainly hear Salsa in Cuba, you would be thrilled by the reggae songs in Jamaica– (hey! don’t miss the Bob Marley Museum when in Kingston!). You’ll hear different types, mixes and mashups of songs on each island influenced mostly by Bachata, Calypso, Cumbia and Merengue. Now there’s only one thing left to do: loosen your hips and start dancing!
Be the prince(s) of a private island for a day
All major cruise lines have their own private islands in the Caribbean where they love to bring their passengers. You can enjoy all the exquisite facilities you would get onboard, but instead of lying on the pool deck, you get to also enjoy a beautiful private Caribbean beach. You can either relax or be active and do parasailing, aqua cycling, kayaking or go for a banana ride or on a catamaran- It’s your call! Being the prince(s) of a private island for a day for sure includes lots of fun and sun!
