Antigua is situated in the Southern Caribbean and has long been a popular port of call for many of the cruise lines that visit the region. Guests who enjoy a cruise to the island can expect beautiful sandy beaches (it is claimed Antigua has 365 beaches – that’s one for every day of the year!), crystal-clear waters ideal for water-sports and no shortage of delicious, freshly prepared Caribbean cuisine.
The island has had a colourful history and it is for this reason history lovers are advised to take advantage of their cruise line’s shore excursions if they would like to explore Antigua’s past in greater detail. The majority of lines offer optional land-tours so that you can enjoy activities in Antigua such as nature walks, plantation house visits and city-tours.
Antigua is also a popular choice for the rich and the famous with Eric Clapton, Richard Branson, and Silvio Berlusconi all having chosen to have holiday homes on the island at one time or another.
