Guest Post: The Best Places to Explore on a Caribbean Cruise

The Caribbean is a magnificent part of the world and a complete relaxation haven. Here you will find a gorgeous climate, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and a relaxed approach to life that is incredibly refreshing. There are a handful of charming islands to explore, each with their own character. A Caribbean cruise is a super way to see a few of these places and enjoy everything that this part of the world has to offer.

Here are a few must visit places on a Caribbean cruise. When you book with specialists like Bolsover Cruise Club, you can see all of these places and many more.

St. Kitts

Christopher Columbus loved discovering this island so much that he named it after himself (it was later shortened by British sailors). St. Kitts boasts superb and varied scenery, including thick rainforests, mountain ranges and picturesque beaches. St. Kitts also features a modern cruise terminal where you can enjoy plenty of shops, bars, cafes and more.

Barbados

An island famous for its cool, friendly and laid-back atmosphere, it is impossible not to immediately fall in love with Barbados. In addition to being a relaxation haven, the island also features plenty of great places to explore, including the lively capital city of Bridgetown. Be sure to sample the delicious local cuisine, as well as their most famous export – rum!

Grenada

Known as “Spice Island” due to its wonderful aroma and being the place where more spices are grown per square mile than anywhere else in the world, Grenada is another must visit place in the Caribbean. Although a tiny island, Grenada has it all including a scenic capital set within a volcanic crater, amazing beaches, rainforests, lakes and waterfalls. Grand Anse beach is one of the finest in the Caribbean and provides lovely views of the capital.

St. Lucia

Arriving in St. Lucia is always a special moment thanks to its stunning volcanic backdrop, which is dominated by the imposing Les Pitons twin peaks. St. Lucia also features lovely beaches with plenty of opportunities for water sports, snorkelling and scuba diving, as well as many great hiking trails that take you into the lush rainforest scenery. 

The Caribbean is an amazing part of the world with dozens of fantastic islands to visit. The best way to see a selection of these is with a Caribbean cruise, which will be a great way to explore the area and get into the relaxed way of life found here.
