2024 Western Caribbean Cruise Highlights

A substantial number of Western Caribbean cruises on Norwegian include a visit to Harvest Caye, Belize. This 75-acre island sanctuary in Southern Belize is brimming with island adventures, or you can book a shore excursion to the mainland. Unwind in the vast pool equipped with a swim-up bar, rent a private cabana, experience zip lining, and more. Mainland excursions might include rainforest river tubing or a visit to a Maya temple.

Roatán, about 30 miles off the Honduran mainland, is a haven for scuba divers due to its crystal-clear waters. Discover the vibrant marine life and some of The Caribbean's finest pillar coral. Opt for a Discover Scuba experience or snorkeling if you're not certified. Or, perhaps you'd prefer lounging at one of the serene beach resorts, bathing in the tranquil turquoise waters.

Some Western Caribbean cruises include a stop in George Town, Grand Cayman. This island is the largest of the Cayman Islands and is renowned for its excellent dive sites, shipwrecks, Seven Mile Beach, and Stingray City.

The Southern Caribbean is famous for world-class diving, duty-free shopping, a rich cultural atmosphere, and mouth-watering local cuisine.

Your Southern Caribbean cruise might include a stop in Oranjestad, Aruba. Even without diving certification, you can embark on remarkable water adventures. Consider a catamaran tour to snorkel the famous Antilla shipwreck. Another option is DePalm Island for snorkeling, sunbathing, or enjoying the water park.

In Curaçao, allow yourself time to explore Wilemstad's colorful Dutch-style buildings. If you're of age, sample the island's famous liqueur. Curaçao is made with the dried peel from the local bitter orange, laraha.

Another intriguing Caribbean destination is St. Kitts. Founded by the French in 1627, it carries a British ambiance. Basseterre, one of the Eastern Caribbean's oldest towns, is nestled at La Grande Soufriere's base, the Lesser Antilles's tallest mountain. St. Kitts is brimming with adventure, from deep-sea fishing and diving to snorkeling. Consider a leisurely train ride around the island, soaking up the views.

2024 Eastern Caribbean Cruise Highlights

The Eastern Caribbean is a wonderful choice throughout the year, though December through April is particularly popular, providing a respite from winter temperatures. Regardless of the season, you'll find a wealth of activities.

Many of Norwegian's Eastern Caribbean cruises stop at Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas — our private island. Indulge in a day filled with fun activities on Great Stirrup Cay, or unwind in your own private cabana or villa (additional fees).

If your cruise stops in St. Lucia, visit the iconic Pitons. You can book a tour to La Soufriere Volcano, where you'll take a scenic rainforest drive to reach the breathtaking mountains. They rise more than 2,500 feet and tower over the area. Should you have a port day in Barbados, spend part of your day swimming with turtles in a calm, secluded bay. You can also head to Welchman Hall Gully and the beach and stopping at Batts Rock known for its green monkeys!

Your cruise might also dock in the U.S., the British Virgin Islands, or perhaps both! St. Thomas, a well-loved Caribbean port, is renowned for its fishing, diving, stunning beaches, and fantastic duty-free shopping. Consider booking a catamaran sailing adventure to snorkel a shipwreck and relax on the sea.
