Popular islands you might visit when you cruise the Southern Caribbean include:

  • Antigua and Barbuda

  • Dominica
  • Grenada
  • Martinique
  • St. Lucia
  • St. Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Trinidad and Tobago

Which Cruise Line Is Best for the Southern Caribbean?

There are many top cruise lines with Southern Caribbean cruise deals. But while most big cruise lines offer Southern Caribbean cruises, there aren't many ships that can go to every one of these beautiful ports. Smaller ships can travel to smaller ports on more remote islands; fleets such as Celebrity, Seabourn, Crystal, Silversea, and Regent Seven Seas have such vessels and offer Southern Caribbean itineraries.

When Is the Best Time to Cruise the Southern Caribbean?

The peak season for cruising the Southern Caribbean is December through April. Temperatures stay pretty moderate all year, so you don't have to worry about the weather. But plan ahead to avoid hurricane season (June through November). The best Southern Caribbean cruise deals are offered in late summer and early fall.

No matter when you choose to travel, CruiseDirect can help you secure the most savings possible. Contact us now to connect with a cruise expert and book your dream voyage!

Southern Caribbean Cruise Vacation Tips

  • A local guide can certainly help you get off the beaten path and in touch with local culture, but payment for their services is expected. Research ahead of time to determine whether you need a tour guide and how much it might cost. Southern Caribbean cruise deals may already include excursions as part of the experience or as an easy add-on.
  • Don't forget to add a tip when you visit a restaurant. Tipping on board your Southern Caribbean cruise may be included in the cost, but if you visit a restaurant in port, remember to add an extra 15 percent for your waiter if you're happy with the service, assuming that a service charge hasn't already been added to the bill.
  • Take the time to check out shopping opportunities in port. Dutch and French islands typically have great deals on imported goods.
  • If you use a cab for a shore excursion, ask for a receipt immediately after paying them. Some drivers may try to later claim that passengers haven't yet paid.
