Journey to the Caribbean out of the UK
The alluring sands, seas and swaying palm trees of the Caribbean provide a perfect setting within which to relax. You can see it all on a cruise from the UK.

The UK is perfectly poised geographically to offer cruise holidays to a range of destinations throughout the continent, with sailings to regions including the Mediterranean, Canary Islands, Baltic nations and the Norwegian fjords. However, given its westerly location facing out towards the Atlantic, it is also possible to embark on a series of journeys to ports located further afield.

Heading towards Central America on one of the many sailings available out of ports around the UK, it is possible to reach the blissful islands of the Caribbean. Known for being home to some of the finest beaches in the world, there are few places that offer a better place to relax and soak up the sun. Plus, with most of these sailings departing throughout the colder months, you can opt to escape the winter blues in exchange for tranquillity.
