2019’s Coolest Caribbean Cruise Experiences

Cruise lines are really pulling out all the stops this year with their incredible offerings. Get your hands on these experiences now and give your clients the best cruise of their lives.

New York > Puerto Rico

Go from big city to small-island-hopping with Silversea’s New York to San Juan itinerary, next departing in November 2019. That’s the perfect time to escape to the warm Caribbean before hunkering down for the winter. This cruise covers a wide array of Caribbean islands: Bermuda, Antigua, Dominica, Guadeloupe and the British Virgin Islands, finishing up on Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico, by the way, is back up and running after devastating Hurricane Maria, so there’s no reason to have any doubts in going there.

Tour Cuba in a Classic Car

Cuba is known for the classic cars that are amazingly still up and running on the island. So what better way to see the sights of Cuba than in a classic car with a shore excursion from ShoreTrips? You’ll see all the highlights of Havana like the Capitol and Revolution Square, but you’ll also make it the outskirts as well to see different neighborhoods. This is such a unique experience; just make sure you understand the potential complexities of traveling to Cuba before going there.

Perfect Day at CoCoCay

This sure is an experience. Debuting in May 2019, Royal Caribbean’s private island will redefine what a beach day is for everyone lucky enough to visit. There’s a waterpark (Thrill Waterpark, with North America’s tallest waterslide), a zip line with the only water landing in the Bahamas, a helium balloon to give you a birds-eye view of the island and a floating bar. But don’t forget about the beaches: Chill Island was made for relaxation and South Beach is all about activity with volleyball, beachside basketball, paddle boarding and kayaking.

Solo Cruising at Its Best

Did you know Norwegian Cruise Line was voted the best cruise line for solo travelers? That’s right – for five years in a row, Norwegian’s earned that title from Porthole Magazine. Though it’s not solely in the Caribbean, this is good to know for people traveling as one or traveling with friends but looking for their own room. Each sailing has opportunities for solo cruisers to meet fellow passengers like bar crawls and happy hours. Good to know since Norwegian offers 100+ Caribbean cruises for this year.
