The ten best shore excursions
of the Caribbean Islands await you.

Sunbathing and beachcombing

There's hardly a Caribbean island that doesn't have a beautiful beach. They are collectively the prime reason visitors come to the islands - and cruise ships offer shore excursions to them.

Snorkeling and diving

You find great reefs on many of the islands. Some cruise ships stock snorkeling equipment. If yours doesn't and you didn't bring yours, there are snorkeling and dive shops ashore.

Carnival of Trinidad  Trinidad & Tobago

It's one of the world's most exciting and energetic carnivals. Your cruise ship must be in the port during the days preceding Lent.

El Morro  Puerto Rico

This mighty, photogenic, thick-walled fortress once stood guard against pirate ships and hostile foreign fleets. El Morro is next to Old San Juan, another must-see attraction.

The Baths  British Virgin Islands

Giant boulders shape a striking rock formation along a beach. They fit snugly together, creating cave-like passageways that you can walk, climb, swim, snorkel, and kayak through.
