St Vincent and the Grenadines cruises are becoming a popular alternative for lovers of the Caribbean who are seeking a more tranquil and serene experience than some of the larger and more populous islands afford. Cruises to places such as Jamaica and Barbados have been popular options for years, but as people discover the dramatically unspoiled landscape, white sandy beaches, and colorful coral reefs, it is likely they will plan trips to this part of the Caribbean with much more frequency. The sheer natural beauty of St Vincent and other islands in the Grenadines like Bequia and Canouan will be a delight for both people heading to St Vincent as their final point of destination for their holidays, as well as those looking forward to St Vincent cruise excursions as part of a multi-destination trip.
As you make plans for your trip to the Grenadines, you will want to equip yourself with certain bits of information. For instance, you will want to be sure you know where the ship docks. All ships anchor at the St Vincent Cruise Terminal right off the town of Kingstown before tendering into the wharf. There are also two cruise ports in Mayreau and Bequia, which is useful if you are staying in the Grenadines and wish to take one of the ferries or tour cruises to these islands. If you have already booked a cruise that includes St Vincent cruise excursions, you should have information about how long you have to be on the island, where exactly you are going, and what your options are for things to do. If you are looking for trendy shopping you may have to wait until you get to another port of call. St Vincent cruise excursions are all about the amazing eco-tourism opportunities, including diving and snorkeling, hikes to the 4,000-foot active volcano, Mt. Soufriere, and boating throughout the island chain.
One of the advantages of booking St Vincent and the Grenadines cruises (as opposed to flying for instance) is that you get to enjoy the amazing scenery along the way, as you pass by the likes of Cuba, Jamaica, and Barbados. The pristine Caribbean waters and coral reefs are absolutely spectacular and you can enjoy gourmet food and beverages as well as entertainment along the way. Once you get into the St Vincent Cruise Terminal, it will become abundantly obvious that you have entered into a tropical paradise. The island is largely undisrupted and is, as of now, immune to the overcrowding of tourism. Repeat visitors to St Vincent and the Grenadines often claim the remote and private locales as the chief reason they return.
Some of the best St Vincent and the Grenadines cruises that involve multiple stops tour the entire Caribbean. Sail along the very waters where the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were shot and enjoy unparalleled sunsets and perfect weather as you stop off at places like Antigua, Aruba, Trinidad, and Grenada. You can bet than any cruise to the Caribbean is bound to be memorable, and if you get to spend anytime on the islands of St Vincent and the Grenadines, you may just fall in love with a brand new destination.
