A journey aboard the Explorer of the Seas means access to a prestigious ship and all its amenities on offer. As with all Royal Caribbean Cruises, you can be sure of facilities that match the style and service on board, including an exclusive feature – the oceanic laboratories – where marine enthusiasts and kids can get a little closer to sea life.
A seven day stint aboard the Explorer of the Seas can bring you closer to islands in the South Caribbean that dreams are made of. Not only that, but during the cruising hours, you can enjoy a whole manner of exciting and interesting activities, or just sit back and relax in one of the communal lounges, bars or decks, taking in the beautiful surroundings.
A typical itinerary begins with a departure from Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New Jersey, heading across the seas to Haiti, where your first port of call will be Labadie. Located on the north coast of the island, which is completely tourist-centred, it’s sure to be a fun stop off. Enjoy a range of watersports, beautiful beaches and wares sold by authorised Haitian merchants.
From here, you will head for San Juan – the capital and principal city of Puerto Rico, where you can sample some of the local culture or take a leisurely stroll through the beautiful streets. As one of the busiest ports in the Western Hemisphere, there are plenty of amenities focussed on the cruising tourist, so there won’t be a chance of boredom.
The 11-night cruise will then stop in Philipsburg, Sint Maarten, which can be found in the south of the island – a beautiful area – followed by a stop off at St John’s in Antigua, one of the most developed and cosmopolitan cities in the Lesser Antilles.
The final stop before the journey back to New Jersey is Basseterre in St. Kitts, where you can explore the town or head for the waters for a spot of scuba diving amongst the various wreckages.
The Southern Caribbean itinerary is certainly not one to be sniffed at. Book one of these Royal Caribbean cruises, today.
