The region that consists of the Caribbean Sea and its islands is a place that is well worth a visit. As all of the islands have a very different aspects about them then seeing one does not really mean you have seen them all. The islands are grouped together however some are surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and some bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding coasts.
visit these caribbean beaches when you go on your cruise

Geographically the region is southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American and a good way to see the islands in one trip is to take a Caribbean cruise around the island. One of the ports the cruise ships tend to stop at is Barbados and many times if you fly in from the UK this is many times the port that you start your tour from.   The islands Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate the region comprises more than 700 islands, islets, reefs, and cays so on your cruise obviously there will not be time to visit them all. However a few of the most popular ones are usually along route and you will get a nice feel of the region as you will normally stop at each port for at least a day and be able to get a slight feel of the main town and time to even more shopping if you haven't done enough on the ship already.

The port in Bridgetown Barbados is just outside the hub of the main town and has very much to offer. Barbados is a sovereign island country in the Lesser Antilles. It is 34 km  in length and up to 23 km in width so even compared to countries such as the UK this island is very small and you may be able to get a tour around the island to get a glimpse of its beauty covered over its area of 431 square km. Barbados is situated in the western area of the North Atlantic and 100 kilometers east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean Sea and many people that have visited this Island on a cruise have later come back on a further holiday and stayed much longer or use it as their honeymoon destination. 

168 kilometers east of this island is Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Like many of the islands the major Music that is popular in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines includes big drum, calypso, soca, steelpan and reggae.  Apart from the tourist industry that provides work in the service sector keeping a large part of the economy afloat, the rest of its income comes from agriculture, dominated by banana production which is the most important sector of this lower-middle-income economy. The government has been relatively unsuccessful at introducing new industries which has been a bit of a shame as when tropical storms hit the island  it wiped out many of the crops in the process. The tourism sector has more potential for development and with filming of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies  helped to expose the island to more potential visitors and investors.This could be one of the islands you visit on your cruise trip. 

Trinidad and Tobago is another beautiful island to visit along the cruise line and lies on the continental shelf of South America. It is thus geologically considered to lie entirely in South America however as the West Indies are generally considered to be part of North America and as the English speaking Caribbean language and cultural links of Trinidad and Tobago are more akin with North America, the nation is often treated as part of North America. The terrain of the islands is a mixture of mountains and plains.The climate is tropical and very much like Barbados there are two seasons annually: the dry season for the first six months of the year and a rainy season in the second half of the year. The majority of the population live in the island of Trinidad locates most of the major towns and cities. There are three major municipalities in Trinidad: Port of Spain, the capital, San Fernando, and Chaguanas. The main town in Tobago is Scarborough. 

On your Caribbean cruise you could come across Saint Kitts and Nevis. These islands were among the first in the Caribbean to be settled by Europeans. Saint Kitts was home to the first English and French colonies in the Caribbean, and thus has also been titled "The Mother Colony of the West Indies" Saint Kitts and Nevis is a twin-island federation whose economy is characterized by its dominant tourism, agriculture and light manufacturing industries. Sugar used to be its main export as the economy has slowed in recent times many of the sugar fields have been burnt down to make way for housing developments.With lush green terrain and beautiful beaches this is fantastic island to visit on your Caribbean cruise.
