The Best Caribbean Cruises from Miami

With its picture-perfect white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and gently swaying palms —  coupled with an abundance of cultural experiences and adventures — it's no wonder The Caribbean is the No. 1 destination for cruise vacations.

A Western Caribbean cruise from Miami with Norwegian will typically include at least one port of call where you can visit some of the famous Mayan ruins of the region. Explore some incredible Maya sites, such as Chichen Itza, Tulum, Kohunlich, Dzibanche, and Nim Li Punit. 

As these destinations are typically on the mainland in or near the tropical jungles of the region, you will also have ample opportunity for other activities, such as wildlife sightings, zip-lining, and river tubing.

For the best of the region, consider a Seven day Western Caribbean from Miami cruise that includes stops at Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Belize. It also includes a stop in Roatan, the largest of Honduras' Bay Islands. Roatan lies along the Mesoamerican Barrier reef. This is the same reef system as Belize's Barrier Reef, a UNESCO world heritage site and the second-longest barrier reef in the world. Best of all, you can do this on Norwegian Encore, the newest and most exciting cruise ship in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet.

Weekend Getaway: 3-Day Bahamas Cruise from Miami on Norwegian Sky

This 3-Day Bahamas cruise from Miami is for vacationers needing a quick weekend getaway where they can leave on a Friday afternoon and be back by Monday morning. In Nassau, you can snorkel with stingrays, try your hand at deep sea fishing, or hit the famous Atlantis Resort. The following day, you'll head to Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian's private island in the Bahamas,” where you can go parasailing or beach it in your own private cabana.

12-Day Panama Canal Cruise from Miami on Norwegian Joy

The 12-Day Panama Canal cruise from Miami on Norwegian Joy will take you to Norwegian Cruise Line's private island of Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas, where you can soak up the rays or go snorkeling with stingrays.

Continue your adventure as you explore the San Felipe de Barajas fortress in Cartagena, Colombia, then visit the Panama Canal/Gatun Lake the following day for an incredible experience. Go on the exciting Aerial Tram & Rainforest Adventure in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica, then try scuba diving in Roatan, Honduras.

 

Once you arrive back in Miami, consider taking the Miami Hop On Hop Off shore excursion, which ends at either the Miami or Fort Lauderdale Airport. This serves the dual purpose of allowing you to see the sights of Miami while reducing the time you'll spend waiting at the airport. The fun, open-air, double-decker buses will take you on narrated tours of the local highlights, including the iconic, pastel-colored Art Deco buildings in South Beach and the distinct Latin vibe of Little Havana. In fact, there are 25 locations where you can hop on and hop off at your leisure.
