Puerto Rico Cruises

There are many reasons why cities along Puerto Rico's coast are some of the most popular ports of call for Caribbean cruises. First, it's geographically convenient, close to the most frequent ports of America - not to mention centrally located with respect to many of the Caribbean's most popular islands. Puerto Rico cruises are also great for Americans without passports, as one is unnecessary to travel to the island. Cheap cruises to Puerto Rico is the real selling point though - since it's one of the cheapest islands in the Caribbean, it makes sense that cruises there are some of the best deals you'll find. From Orlando, Miami, Key West, even New Orleans, there are plenty of cheap cruises to Puerto Rico out there for the taking.

Just about every major Caribbean cruise ship docks in San Juan. Whether you are just doing a weekend trip across the Gulf of Mexico or are doing a lengthy tour of the islands of the Caribbean, San Juan will likely be one of your first stops. Puerto Rico cruises from major Floridian cities are the most popular way to get to the island.

Another great way to see the Caribbean is to fly into San Juan and then grab one of the many cruises from Puerto Rico and get a feel for the rest of the islands. There are almost as many cruises originating on the island as there are cheap cruises to Puerto Rico. And they vary greatly in price, luxury and length, meaning you can pretty much pick and choose which islands you want to see and how much you want to pay to see them. Almost every single one departs San Juan. From there, cruises from Puerto Rico hit islands like St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Anguilla - many even stop of at all the major islands before turning around in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Each of the Caribbean islands, while grouped in the same sea, is far removed from each other in terms of culture, history and atmosphere. Cruises from Puerto Rico give you a scenic and relaxing way to get a glimpse into the lives that roam each one, in a far more convenient way than if one were to try to island hop on their own. For instance, a typical 10 day cruise would include stops at San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua and St. Lucia.

Though cruises set sail year round, the most popular time to get on board is during the winter, when the rest of the world begins to feel a chill in the air. Prices follow this popularity, but they don't escalate much in the winter, even if the tourists do.

So whether you are taking cruises into the island, or using San Juan as a jumping off point for the rest of your vacation, Puerto Rico cruises are a great way to take in the Caribbean Sea.
