Silversea Cruises to the Caribbean
Big ship, small islands. Such a perspective characterizes the typical Caribbean cruise – but not when you take it with Silversea.
What about this luxury cruise line sets it apart? For one, the ships carry fewer than 500 passengers each, and rather strive for grandness with activities on board, a yacht-like atmosphere pervades. Two, the ports, while sticking in the same Eastern, Southern, and Western regions, veer away from the standard options. Silversea takes travelers off the beaten path to open a new experience on the familiar soft white sands and clear blue waters.
The smaller ship size further proves to be advantageous in terms of where you can go. You’ll get up close to deserted beaches and coral reefs, and visit ports near Costa Rican forests and Mayan ruins in Guatemala and Mexico, all while traveling through the Panama Canal.
Silversea’s Caribbean cruises last a minimum of seven days. Ships begin from New York, Bridgetown, Barbados, San Juan, or Fort Lauderdale. The following three ships currently serve all Caribbean itineraries: • Silver Whisper • Silver Spirit • Silver Cloud
Eastern: Geographically, the Eastern Caribbean covers a large area, encompassing islands as far north as Bermuda and the Bahamas and going through the Lesser Antilles like St. Lucia, St. Kitts, and Grenada.
Through several itineraries, Silversea visits the entire region, connecting each culture together but adding distinctiveness through exclusive itineraries and lesser-visited ports on each island. Itineraries take you to the British charm and pink sandy beaches of Hamilton, Bermuda, through the Bahamas, and through the island nations of Antigua, St. Lucia, Barbados, Grenada, St. Vincent, Dominica, St. Maarten, the Virgin Islands, and Turks and Caicos Islands.
Western: The typical Western Caribbean cruise touches down in Cozumel, Belize, and Honduras – which Silverseas does, but the itineraries of resort towns near ancient ruins and coral reefs go far beyond and extend to two Central American coasts. After de rigueur ports in the Cayman Islands, Colombia, and the Panama Canal, Silversea makes its way through the western coast of Central America. Past ruins and rainforests, you’ll visit the ports making up the Mexican Riviera, including Puerto Quetzal, Puerto Chiapas, and Cabo St. Lucas, before finishing in Los Angeles.
Southern Caribbean: Dutch architectural influences pervade, no matter which island you visit. Itineraries take you through the dark blue waters, ostrich farms, mountains, and parks on Curacao, Aruba, Bonaire, Dominica, St. Barts, and St. Maarten.
The Caribbean’s a beautiful region – a cultural confluence, characterized by stunning beaches, and one stretching across two continents – so why only get one perspective? Find yours with a Silversea cruise. Select and schedule your itinerary today through Direct Line Cruises.
