A Different Kind of Caribbean
The islands of the Caribbean are a popular winter vacation destination. Warm sun, great beaches, and a diverse, vibrant culture put this region at the top of many people's vacation list. Unfortunately, some islands in the Caribbean are suffering from serious overtourism, leading to crowds, a degraded visitor experience, and threats to the regions unique cultures and heritage. The good news is that many parts of the Caribbean remain uncrowded and unspoiled, allowing the curious traveler unparalleled opportunities for quality relaxation in a great climate, the chance to escape and unplug from the stresses of life, and to experience fascinating culture, beautiful destinations, and serenity.
Small ship cruises offer one highly enjoyable way to discover this different side of the Caribbean. With the ability to visit ports that are inaccessible to the crowds on mega ships, these small ship Caribbean cruises visit small islands, full of rich culture, varied recreational options, and small, secluded beaches - with nary a crowd in sight! Islands such as St. Barths, Nevis, Tortola, Mustique, Guadeloupe, and more can be discovered in luxury by small ship cruise, combining a chance to discover many islands with the convenience of only unpacking once. Different small ship cruises offer different experiences, and as a veteran small ship cruiser and luxury cruise guru, I can help you select the one that is right for you.
Boutique resorts abound on these islands, offering an intimate, quiet experience for those interested in the serenity they offer. Offering the same amenities as large resorts, these luxury boutique properties deliver highly personalized service, great cuisine, and superb accommodations without the crowds. No fighting over a lounge chair by the beach, and no worries about beaches teaming with people. There are some real gems that fly under the standard tourist radar, and I've enjoyed the opportunity to visit and experience many of them personally.
