So, you probably saw that S and I recently went on the Harmony of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. If not, you can read about it over on the blog here *wink wink, nudge nudge!*.
It was the first time that S had been on a cruise ship, but I’d been on a few in the past. Granted, it had been some time, but I was lucky enough to do a lot of cruising and traveling with my family when I was younger. We headed to the Caribbean mostly, so I’ve pulled together the top destinations, which I hope to again return to soon!

There really is no better summer destination than the Caribbean. Gorgeous sandy beaches, turquoise waters, rugged mountain terrain, lush forests and palm trees gently swaying in the breeze ensure that this area of the world is a relaxation oasis. However, the Caribbean also boasts plenty of fun and adventure with water sports, hiking trails, swimming with dolphins and safari being just a few options.
The best way to soak up the paradise that is the Caribbean is with a cruise, as this way you can explore the different islands and discover their distinctive personalities. These are the must visit Caribbean islands on a cruise holiday.
When you imagine what a Caribbean paradise looks like, it is likely that St. Lucia is what you are imagining. Beautiful mountains, pristine white beaches and calm turquoise waters perfect for paddling in; St. Lucia is a beautiful and serene island. It also boasts the world’s only “drive-through” volcano and a number of fun and distinctive towns to explore in the heart of the island.
Often the first island that springs to mind; Jamaica is the heart and soul of the Caribbean and a must visit. A famous reggae scene, delicious cuisine, beautiful wildlife and flora, lush forests, clear waters and a laid back atmosphere make this a favourite with plenty to see and do.
An incredibly laid back and friendly place which is also a relaxation haven; Barbados is a stunning island which lives at a leisurely pace. However, there is also a lively city in Bridgetown which features many fun cultural activities. Barbados also features a diverse landscape and some of the most scenic beaches in the entire world.
There is plenty of fun to be had on the Cayman Islands, which is made up of three main islands each with their own distinctive personality. The smallest island, Little Cayman, has a relaxed atmosphere and one of the best dive walls in Bloody Bay Wall, whilst Cayman Brac boasts breathtaking natural beauty which makes it ideal for rewarding hikes. Grand Cayman is the main attraction with a cosmopolitan feel, a stunning beach and an excellent food and drinking scene.
These are the four must visit islands when you embark on a cruise to this magical area of the world. To find the best deals on cruises and get the ball rolling on your trip, it’s worth checking out independent cruise agents Iglu Cruise. Who can put you in front and plan the perfect Caribbean cruise.
