British Virgin Island Cruises
British Virgin Island cruises are immensely popular among the throngs of tourists who flock to these spectacular Caribbean islands every year. In the same way that an all inclusive vacation package with airfare and hotel accommodations can provide families and groups with excellent deals, so too can cruises provide valuable bargains and exceptional accommodations.
If you are booking a BVI cruise you will likely be aboard one of the luxury carriers that offer many more amenities that even some of the finest luxury hotels regularly do. And as an added benefit to the luxurious accommodations and on-ship activities and entertainment, you will be able to relax knowing that all of your food and drinks while on board are a part of the deal. Many of the package deals include a cruise excursion in British Virgin Islands and you have the option of booking an all inclusive BVI cruise that covers all of the excursions throughout the course of the trip.
Some of the most popular and regularly available British Virgin Island cruises are those offered by larger carriers like Princess Cruises, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean. To give an example of what a BVI cruise entails, take a look at the amenities and accommodations available to you on one of these cruise liners. The Caribbean Princess is a large ship that sets sail to the turquoise waters and white sandy shores of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. It features 900 balcony staterooms and a full deck of miniature suites to accommodate their guests. The staterooms leave little to be desired in terms of amenities from fully stocked mini bars to luxuriant bathrooms to lush bedding and private vistas of the ocean. You are able to choose from a range of suites as well, from those with private balconies to ocean view double suites perfect for a small group of friends. All of the rooms are gracefully appointed and have thoughtful touches like chocolates awaiting you on your pillow in your suite and whirlpool jets in the in-room Jacuzzis.
This BVI cruise offers multiple options for fine dining and buffet-style dining in the grand ballroom and various restaurants and eateries aboard the ship. Guests can explore the grand atrium, walk the deck of the ship and watch the ocean peacefully pass by beneath them, or enjoy movies under the stars. This is one of the British Virgin Island cruises that also offers virtually unlimited entertainment options for adults and children alike. There are multiple swimming pools and water sport activities, movie theaters, game rooms, and water slides. Many such cruise liners feature these and many more amenities. The Caribbean Princess features a pleasing wine bar, an exceptional steak house, and dining by the pool.
A cruise excursion in British Virgin Islands from this ship may include the Best of Tortola with Lunch. Passengers enjoy lunch on a famous rooftop restaurant before relaxing on Cane Garden Bay Beach. Another cruise excursion in British Virgin Islands from this particular ship includes the Coast to Coast Scenic drive. On this tour you get to enter into the island interior and inspect the tropical forests for yourself. This excursion is perfect for those individuals who want to explore as much of the usually less accessible islands as possible. Taking a cruise ship to the British Virgin Islands gives you the opportunity to enjoy every part of your journey to the islands in a relaxing environment, and one where you will find no shortage of posh accommodations and luxurious amenities.
