A Caribbean cruise on a small ship or sailboat is the best way to explore the turquoise waters, beaches, rich marine life and cultures of the Caribbean. The vessel you choose for your cruise on has a dramatic impact on the experience. On a small sailboat or small luxury ship with only 24-60 passengers aboard, you can access small coves, reefs and ports that are impossible on a huge cruise ship carrying hundreds or even thousands of passengers. Enjoy the serenity of sailing on a small sailboat like the Mandalay, Panorama, or the Liberty Clipper. Up the ante on a luxury small ship like the Variety Voyager, or the Ponant.  Escape the average Caribbean cruise by having one of our small ship Caribbean cruise experts design you the perfect trip.

Highlights of the Caribbean
The Lesser Antilles  are home to some of the most popular destinations in  the Caribbean, like the Virgin Islands,  St. Lucia, & St. Martin, where delightful cafes, tranquil towns, and serene beaches highlight the sea side scenery.

‚ÄčThe Grenadines: Technically part of the Sail to Grenada, Bequia, Union Island, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Carriacou, Sandy Island, Canouan and Happy Island; try some of the famous local Caribbean rum; relax on the beach; or participate in various land excursions.

The Bahamas: As you cruise through the Bahamas on a small sailboat, get into the groove of the laidback lifestyle of the islands, the culinary delights of the local cuisine, and perhaps even have a chance to try hoisting the sails or taking over the helm of your sailboat.

Cuba: What was once a secluded Caribbean nation, politically estranged from much of the Western world, has recently been gaining more and more attention as policies evolve. Stops in Havanna, Santiago, and other towns will enchant you.

The Virgin Islands: Offer you some of the best snorkeling opportunities in the whole Caribbean, featuring crystal clear waters and diverse marine life, in addition to stops in charming port towns along the way, where you can get a taste of the local island culture.

The Panama Canal: See the breathtaking marvel that is the Panama Canal, when the greatest minds and thousands of dedicated workers labored internationally to connect the Atlantic & Pacific trade routes.
