Escape the mammoth floating hotels with thousands of tourists and get to know the real Caribbean on a small ship cruise that has exclusive access to the hidden coves, vibrant reefs, & small port cities that the bigger ships simply can't reach. Just because you're on a smaller boat doesn't mean you have to sacrifice luxury, especially on ships like the Ponant or the Voyager. If you want a truly unique and relaxing experience, consider booking your trip on a small sailboat like the Liberty Clipper, the Mandalay, or the Panorama. Adventure Life's team of Caribbean specialists can answer any of your questions about your Caribbean vacation.
