Prismality.......In general the Caribbean Sea is divided by the cruiselines into 3 main categories: Eastern Caribbean(Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, St Maarten etc), Western Caribbean (Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Cozumel etc) and Southern Caribbean (Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire etc). Many cruises cover more than one area. Neither the Bahamas nor Bermuda are part of the Caribbean but some of the longer cruise itineraries include them from time to time.

You first need to decide what islands You wish to visit and how long You wish to cruise. You can find itineraries from 2 to 15 + days. You will find prices varying between $189pp to over $2000pp plus taxes and port fees. Type of cabin also affects the price! For a first cruise an outside cabin (having a window or a porthole) is a good way to get a feel for cruising!

The best way to begin is to have a nice long visit with a Travel Agent in Your area......I am sure You have Family or friends who have traveled and can recommend one to You.
Cruising is one of the most wonderful and relaxing ways to travel......You are beginning one of life's greatest adventures......the memories will last you a lifetime,,,once you have tried cruising...it is most likely you will return time and time again!!

Bon Voyage,
