Why is that the eastern carribean cruise cheaper than the western carribean cruise?
I would like to know soon because we have reservation holds on both, except that the one on eastern we have a balcony room on the western there is no balcony available. This is our first cruise, so would like it to be a good experience. Please advise. Thanks.
Our family did an Eastern Carribean cruise with a balcony a couple of years ago. It was great. I loved St.Thomas. We did not cruise the Western Carribean, but instead took an Apple vacation to an all-inclusive resort in Cancun. In the week we saw what we wanted to see in Cozumel and Cancun. Although we love to cruise, this was a new experience and would do it that way again. Which ever you choose, I hope you have a great time!
My preference is the Western Caribbean. I have taken both. I wasn't terribly impressed with the Eastern but it was enjoyable. I am taking the Western again in January because I enjoy Grand Cayman especially. The entire Caribbean area is a distant second to Alaska however!
Apple Vacations is a tour operator that books packaged vacations. Our package included airfare to Cancun, seven days at an all-inclusive resort (alcohol included), buffet meals and evening entertainment. Excursions were not included in the price. We enjoyed ourselves. We were able to see more of Cancun and Cozumel in six days than you would see on a cruise. One year we may decide to do the Western Caribbean on a cruise. I would enjoy seeing Grand Cayman, however Alaska is our next adventure. Alaska seems to be all about nature and the scenery. I look forward to it.
You can see pictures, videos, and tour guides but until you see Alaska in person, it is impossible to envision. It makes you feel very small! In my opinion, the best cruise is from Anchorage to Vancouver.
