Embark on your cruise in Fort Lauderdale and visit the following ports:
George Town, Grand Cayman: Kayak along an endless stretch of coastline at Grand Cayman’s world-famous Seven-Mile Beach. Visit the Turtle Farm, an interactive nursery for green and hawksbill turtles, and have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of snorkeling with the stingrays at the Stingray City Sandbar. Or travel to Hell, a town with a name inspired by its odd rock formations. It’s a Grand Cayman must-see!
Oranjestad, Aruba: You’ll notice the Dutch heritage on the independent island of Aruba in its architecture and the dialects of the residents. Famous for its palm-lined beaches and clear, calm waters, Aruba is perfect for swimming and sunbathing. One of the Caribbean’s largest shipwrecks, the 400-foot Antilla, is home to a wide diversity of sea life and is a popular snorkeling and diving destination.
Willemstad, Curaçao: Some call Curaçao the Caribbean’s best kept secret. Enjoy your included “Heart of Curaçao” shore event. Sightseeing includes highlights of the island’s capital city, followed by a stop at the Jan Kok Plantation House, built in 1840 and one of the oldest houses on the island. The house is named after the 18th century slave master Jan Kok, who was infamous for his cruelty; many people on the island still believe that his bad spirit haunts the house. The plantation was mainly a salt plantation, although arable farming and cattle breeding took place as well. In 1860 about 100 slaves still worked there.
Kralendijk, Bonaire: This island is surrounded by a Marine Park where the diving is excellent and a rainbow array of fish make it a perfect snorkeling site. Sorobon Beach is great for windsurfing and sunbathing. Bonaire is famous for its pink flamingos, which you can see along with other bird life in Washington Slagbaai National Park, and it is home to the Caribbean’s only barefoot casino.
Key West, Florida: On the colorful island Ernest Hemingway called home, you can stop at the author’s museum, along with the “Southernmost Point in the Continental United States” and other Key West highlights, on the Conch Tour Train. Shop in Old Town, sample some key lime pie or visit the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory, the quaint outdoor Key West Aquarium or the fascinating Shipwreck Museum.
