Cruising is one of the most popular ways to visit the Caribbean Islands. Cruise visits to the islands are approaching 30 million each year, and cruise lines are adding new destinations to their itineraries all the time. 

A big part of planning a cruise vacation to the Caribbean is deciding where you want to go. Pick a mega-ship, and you'll generally be limited to the big ports that can accommodate the large vessels operated by cruise lines like Carnival and Royal Caribbean.

Smaller ships offer more flexibility in terms of destinations, so if you want a taste of the exotic, then check out cruise lines like Island Windjammers and Windstar Cruises.
