Lynne: My favourite port I highly recommend to anyone planning to cruise or visit the Caribbean, is Grenada. The island’s natural beauty is simply breathtaking, boasting lush rainforests, majestic waterfalls, and pristine beaches that captivate nature enthusiasts. Also, Grenada is a haven for divers, offering some of the Caribbean’s finest spots with vibrant coral reefs filled with marine life.

However, what truly makes Grenada stand out is the genuine warmth and hospitality of its people. From the moment you arrive, you’re embraced with open arms and treated like family. Whether you’re indulging in local cuisine at a roadside food stand or having friendly conversation with locals at a beach bar, Grenada instantly feels like a home away from home.

Antigua is renowned for its stunning beaches, with powdery white sands and clear turquoise waters stretching as far as the eye can see. Beyond its beaches, Antigua boasts a rich history and vibrant culture that adds depth to its allure. Exploring the capital city of St. John’s, you’ll discover a charming mix of colonial architecture, bustling markets, and colourful street vendors selling everything from local crafts to fresh produce.
