The Caribbean is one of the most popular cruise destinations and provides the iconic scenery of the very best cruises: palm trees, white sand and sparkling oceans.

However, this means that you can be spoilt for choice when picking your perfect cruise liners, from family-friendly activity cruises to adults-only cruises that are perfect for a holiday romance or luxurious honeymoon.

Whatever cruise you choose, it might be a good idea to take out a comprehensive cruise travel insurance to cover you in the event of needing medical treatment or other unforeseen circumstances such as passport loss.
