Ports of Call

If you’re craving sun-kissed shores, nothing beats a Caribbean cruise. Though best known for their beautiful beaches, Caribbean destinations offer much more than that — like bold cuisine, colorful colonial towns, and rich cultural traditions from all over the world. Cruise to the Caribbean and discover the cliff-diving, breeze-swaying, sand-between-your-toes, no-worries pace of island life. Hundreds of years of history have left jungle ruins from ancient times and vibrant colonial towns with brightly painted buildings reflecting a fascinating history. If calm, contemplative nature is more your thing, spend the day admiring cascading waterfalls and vivid coral reefs, home to manta rays and parrot fish. Discover the magic of a Caribbean cruise.

*Shore excursions are to be determined. More information coming soon.

The best Caribbean cruises will take you to dive into the aquamarine water and see the beautiful underwater life up close and personal with a snorkeling or scuba diving adventure and to discover captivating coral reefs and unique species of jellyfish like the orange Moochers, Loggerhead sea turtles and the red cushion sea star, which can be seen in shallow waters. 

Immerse yourself in the culture in some of the oldest cities in the Americas — the Caribbean has been shaped by a diverse history, with Africans, Europeans and Asians all leaving their mark. See cathedrals and colonial architecture, lively street festivals, and brightly colored buildings.


Cruise to the Western Caribbean and find yourself immersed in bygone eras and pristine natural scenery. Hike through ruins or take flight on a massive zip line over Labadee's shimmering coastlines in Haiti. Walk through the white-sand beaches and dip your toes into the crystal-clear Caribbean water. Spark adventure with an adrenaline-pumping afternoon dabbling in water sports like jet skiing, parasailing, fishing or snorkeling. If cruising into island time is more your thing, sit back and relax with a delicious rum punch or piña colada cocktail in hand as you listen to the waves crash along the beach.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Port of Departure

A cruise out of Fort Lauderdale is one of the most popular ways to experience the best of the Caribbean, but this coastal South Florida city is a worthy destination in and of itself. Port Everglades is the main cruise port near Fort Lauderdale, but just a few miles away you’ll find beautiful white-sand beaches, a lively food and shopping scene, and cerulean blue waterways dotted with impressive yachts and sailboats. Want to discover the best of Fort Lauderdale like a local? Go for an early-morning stroll along the Fort Lauderdale Beach promenade and watch the sun rise over the water. Then grab breakfast beachside at one of the many open-air cafes that line the waterfront. If you’re looking for a wilder way to spend the day, set out on an eco-kayak tour through mangrove forests, calm bays, and emerald-green inlets — Fort Lauderdale is home to more than 300 miles of waterways, which has earned it the nickname, “Venice of America.”


Things To Do



Las Olas Boulevard, nestled next door to downtown, is the entertainment core of Fort Lauderdale. It has a mile of upscale shops and al fresco dining that runs past high-rises and into the RiverWalk, where you can catch the free water trolley for a cruise across mega-mansion-lined canals.


Soak up the sun, sand and seaside fun along Fort Lauderdale Beach. Walk along the palm-lined “Strip” on State Road A1A to get your fill of beach bars, souvenir shops and outdoor restaurants. Fort Lauderdale cruises allow you to go full throttle on a Jet Ski®— or go parasailing high above the ocean.


Head west and explore the Florida Everglades, an untamed river of grass spanning 2,200 acres of picturesque wetlands. Whether you take a wild ride in an airboat or splash around in a swamp buggy, you’ll encounter wild alligators and native birds thriving among Florida’s finest natural landscapes.

Local Cuisine


You’d be hard-pressed to find a more authentic Fort Lauderdale dining experience than eating fresh-off-the-boat seafood in a waterfront eatery. Local “Floribbean” cuisine melds Caribbean and Latin-influenced flavors with locally caught fish, shrimp and crab. Surf-and-turf joints line every inch of A1A along the beach, while white tablecloths drape the majority of Las Olas sidewalk restaurants.




Pick up beachwear at The Gallery at Beach Place, or find rare books and handmade hats on Hollywood Boulevard. Dania’s Antique Row is home to some 100 dealers, while art galleries and unusual boutiques line Las Olas Boulevard. For serious bargains, head to the Sawgrass Mills outlet sprawl.


Most of the experiences at Perfect Day at CocoCay are complimentary, including plenty of free loungers and activities at five stretches of beach — not to mention five complimentary dining venues located throughout the island. Other attractions, like Thrill Waterpark®, Overwater Cabanas, the Zip Line, and Up, Up and Away helium balloon, are available for a charge.

Falmouth, Jamaica
