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 SeaDream I or SeaDream IIMandalay, Panorama, or the Liberty Clipper. Up the ante on a luxury small ship like the Variety Voyager, or new Le Champlain and Le Dumont-d'Urville by Ponant. Escape the average Caribbean cruise by having one of our small ship Caribbean cruise experts design you the perfect trip.

What to Expect on a Luxury Caribbean Cruise
When you book a luxury Caribbean cruise aboard one of our hand-selected small ships, you are signing up for an unforgettable combination of comfort and service. 

We feature only small ships, yachts, and windjammers for our luxury Caribbean cruises, because we believe that this should be an intimate experience that you share with your loved ones, and that's exactly the ambiance the small ships offer. 

While each ship has a unique design, we guarantee elegance and style, in addition to comfortable and spacious suites - often with their own private balconies - and the best onboard amenities of any small Caribbean ships.

Luxury cruises offer all kinds of included activities to fill your days, but there are also add-on packages that can bring even more adventure and exploration to your itinerary. Plus there's plenty of free time built in to these cruises at each port so that you can simply relax on the beach and meander around the small towns if you prefer.

Highlights of the Caribbean

The Lesser Antilles

The Grenadines: 
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.
