Offering an unrivalled choice of beautiful beaches, stunning weather year-round and intriguing colonial heritage, Caribbean cruises are perhaps the most popular choice for cruisers year after year. With this in mind, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offer an enticing selection of excellent value voyages exploring this most enduring of holiday destinations.
Fred. Olsen Caribbean cruises feature a wide range of exciting island destinations within their itineraries, and a significant number also conveniently depart from the UK port of Southampton. As well as longer voyages which include visits to other nearby regions including North and Central America, there are also a number of Caribbean cruises which explore the region exclusively. No matter which itinerary you pick, you’ll have an excellent choice of land tours, where you’ll be able to discover colonial cities, explore the islands’ natural wonders or get involved in an immersive culinary experience.
If you’re looking for a cruise which fully explores the Caribbean islands then why not opt for a Fred. Olsen voyage focusing exclusively on this sun-soaked archipelago? A colourful round-trip from Barbados’ lively capital of Bridgetown is always a wonderful option, meaning that, at either end of your cruise, you’ll have the chance to shop till you drop on bustling Broad Street or explore the city’s historic parliament buildings. You could call at St George’s on Grenada, where the beautiful vistas are as exotic as the aromas from the cinnamon and vanilla plantations, then Willemstad on Curacao, where the UNESCO World Heritage Site old town awaits. From there, a stay in Aruba’s capital Oranjestad with its strong Dutch influence offers abundant sunshine, and a visit to Santiago, Cuba’s second-largest city, provides you with the choice of 300 beaches.
Grand Turk is another exciting port of call and boasts what many believe to be the perfect climate, while its pure white sands only add to its paradise-like appeal. You’ll also have chance to head to the capital of the British Virgin Islands, Road Town on Tortola, where the verdant hills meet the ocean and where history was made in 1834 when the Emancipation Proclamation granted slaves their freedom. Basseterre on St Kitts is another enchanting port, which was originally established by the French before becoming part of the British Empire and is brimming with history to discover throughout its quaint streets. If you’re a beach-lover, then a stop at St John’s on Antigua is the perfect addition to your cruise, as it offers 365 beaches - one for every day of the year.
If you’d prefer to depart from and return to Southampton, a Caribbean voyage is also a perfect choice. You’ll call at destinations including Bridgetown, St George’s and Kingstown, capital of St Vincent and the Grenadines, with its beautiful harbour and lush Botanical Gardens – one of the oldest in the world. You'll also have the chance to visit Castries on St Lucia – a real oasis of greenery, Basseterre, then Santo Domingo, the New World’s oldest colonial city, where a strong Latin influence can still be felt. Stops at Grand Turk, Philipsburg, Road Town on Tortola and Ponta Delgada on the Azores island of San Miguel, which has a rich history and majestic scenery to enjoy, are also regularly featured on Fred. Olsen Caribbean cruises departing from the UK.
