What better way to spend your retirement than cruising through the beautiful Caribbean? The clear blue water, the warm sunshine and white sand of the Caribbean is unmistakable.
And, after all, the best way to visit the islands is on a luxury cruise liner. Today we’re looking at some of the best ways to take a Caribbean cruise for seniors.
Great Caribbean Cruise Ships
Symphony of the Seas
The Symphony of the Seas is one of the biggest cruise ships in the world, and sails out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Symphony is owned by Royal Caribbean, and stops at, variously, Miami, St. Kitts and St. Thomas. St. Kitts is a somewhat odd stop, so we recommend the eastern leg of this boat’s journey to visit this beautiful island.
The boat offers numerous entertainment choices, including acrobatic shows and the Aqua Theater. There is ample food to be found, with over 20 restaurants on board.
The Silver Wind carries only around 300 passengers, which is great for people who want a smaller crowd on the boat. The atmosphere on the boat is very laid back, and entertainment is the light lounge type. This boat is ideal for retired people who want a more quiet and reserved vacation.
The massive ms Koningsdam, the flagship of Holland America, carries 2,650 guests, making it the polar opposite of the Silver Wind. This huge boat is unbelievably luxurious, and offers an 11-night journey through the beautiful Caribbean.
This huge, luxurious boat has ample activities available for passengers. Popular among guests is the BB King Blues Club, which hosts a laid back and blues-flavored atmosphere.
Destinations include the gorgeous Soufriere Bay in St. Lucia, and there’s even a pass by Mount Pelee. Mount Pelee, a non-active volcano on Martinique, is a favorite of passengers on the Koningsdam.
