Of all the travels to nearly 60 countries across the globe, one thing I’ve never done is go on a cruise. Also, despite the fact I was born in the Caribbean on the island of St. Thomas, I haven’t returned to the region since leaving over 25 years ago. Which is why, when presented with this sponsored content, it got me thinking about making a trip back to the islands and rediscovering my lost Caribbean roots. Who knows, if I found a good deal, maybe it would even be aboard the decks of a cruise ship…
With a cruise on the decks of the Explorer of the Seas, you don’t just have access to cruise facilities and superb amenities; you have the chance to enjoy this beautiful ship as part of a fantastic South Caribbean itinerary that will leave you feeling utterly spoilt. Royal Caribbean cruises are among the best in the business, and it’s easy to see why with this prestigious cruise.
Unrivaled facilities are on offer during your trip on the Explorer, including the exclusive oceanic laboratories which are a perfect attraction for children and marine enthusiasts, giving them the chance to get up close and personal with sea life.
Let’s not forget the fabulous itinerary that you can look forward to as part of this cruise that departs from the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New Jersey. From here, you will set sail for the port of Labadie in Haiti, a tourist-centered resort that boasts exclusive use by RCI cruises. Whilst here, you can enjoy a plethora of watersports in the azure seas before relaxing on the sandy beaches, watching the world go by. While here, take the opportunity to pick up some local produce from the authorized merchants in the resort.
From Haiti, you will cruise to Puerto Rico’s capital city of San Juan – a perfect place for you to take a stroll and explore the amenities and local culture. If you’ve signed up for the 11-night cruise, Saint Maarten is the next stop, followed by Antigua in the Lesser Antilles.
Before you spend the last days at sea heading back to New Jersey, you will have just enough time to spend the day in St. Kitts, a diver’s paradise offering plenty of opportunities to scuba amongst the various corals and wreckages off the coast.
Book your cruise of the Southern Caribbean today, and you won’t be disappointed by the exotic paradise that awaits you.
