Caribbean Cruises and Cruise Lines - Caribbean Cruise Information

Caribbean cruises are the most popular of all cruises, accounting for nearly 50 percent of all cruises worldwide. TheCruiseLines.com features the World's Largest Cruise Database, with the best Caribbean cruise values afloat.

We provide easy do-it-yourself booking, or you can call us for professional assistance. Our booking system as well as professional assistance are both free services, and do not require registration.

Caribbean "Cruise Only"
When you search for Caribbean Cruise Deals you will find that the best deals are always "Cruise Only". Some cruise lines, such as Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises no longer even provide an airfare option at time of booking.

Find The Best Caribbean Cruise Deals

Bookings made online are booked on the cruise lines' computers, and payments are made directly to the cruise lines.

There is also a drop-down box for selecting your state or province of residency. Please make sure to use it. Cruise lines will often offer great extra discounts in this way.
How Many Days?

Caribbean cruises come in three lengths. Short cruises of 3 to 5 days to the Bahamas, weeklong cruises to the "Eastern" or "Western" Caribbean, and cruises longer than 10 days, covering more Caribbean ports. Weeklong cruises are by far the most popular Caribbean cruises.

Eastern, Western or Southern Caribbean?
Cruises in the Caribbean usually visit three to four ports on a weeklong itinerary. Eastern Caribbean itineraries depart South Florida or the U.S. East Coast for visits that may include the Bahamas, St Thomas, St Maarten and Tortola. A Western Caribbean cruise vacation departs South Florida or ports around the Gulf of Mexico, and typically visits places such as Key West, Cozumel, Belize, the Cayman Islands and Jamaica.

Caribbean cruise deals on Celebrity Cruises Southern Caribbean cruises may start in San Juan if weeklong, or ports in New York and Florida if longer than 10 days. Southern Caribbean cruises visit the idyllic small Windward Islands from Antigua south to Barbados, or Curacao and Aruba along the north coast of South America. These voyages offer cruisers port-intensive itineraries that take in some of the Caribbean’s lesser known and most pristine islands.

Ports of Departure
Caribbean cruises depart from many ports along the U.S. coast, from New York all the way to Galveston. Use our Cruise Port Search to find a port conveniently located close to you.

Which Cruise Line?
You can find much more information about each cruise line from the "Caribbean Cruise Lines" and "Luxury/Deluxe Lines" lists of cruise lines to the left.

Big Ship or Giant Ship?
The major cruise lines that have been unveiling and sailing larger and larger cruise ships for the past decade take pride in offering so many choices that, for instance, on some it takes a week to visit every restaurant or dining room for dinner.

Superliners from Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean and others provide a cruise vacation that can be wild and wooly one minute and cool, calm and collected the next. The facilities on these floating resorts, which all deserve the state-of-the-art label, will satisfy everyone from the health nut who wants to stay fit to the party animal who wants to dance all night.

It’s the big ships that feature the headline-grabbing innovations like surfing simulators, rock-climbing walls, ice skating rinks and wave pools, but because they are newer, they also feature some of the neatest twists on cruise-ship staples such as health spas, libraries and game rooms.

Mix in a few days visiting appealing ports, and a week on a big ship will seem to fly by. What may be most impressive, though, is how these ships can accommodate up to 6,000 people while not seeming crowded. More than anything, that’s a testament to all the different choices everyone is making every day.
