In my humble opinion, cruising the Carribean is so enjoyable, I definitely have stops that I enjoy more than others, St Maarten being a FAV. Like many others, Jamaica is beautiful, but the conditions there make it less enjoyable. I happen to like smaller ships, and truthfully enjoy the savings of not going on the newest, biggest ship. But if I am cruising the Carribean, after 19 cruises there, I am just happy to be cruising...and make the best of where I go. I happen to choose cruises that stop in Key West, cuz my Brother lives there. From 2001-2006 I was just flying to Key West and visiting, but I missed cruising so I now I do both.
