Cruises from Bridgetown, Barbados
The island of Barbados is rich in history and culture, but the main draw is the resort style beach communities that attract visitors from all over the world. A number of cruise vacations also depart from Bridgetown, operated by Carnival Cruise Line. These are rather short in duration and usually last 7 nights. Travelers are offered the option of beginning and ending their cruise in Bridgetown, with stops on Saint Lucia Island, Saint Kitts Island, Philipsburg, St. Maarten and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Other cruise options from Bridgetown feature a stop at San Juan in addition to the typical stops at Caribbean. However, those itineraries that stop at San Juan typically don't stop at Saint Kitts Island.

The cruise options from San Juan are abundant, with round trip packages that include stops at as many as a dozen ports. All of the cruises begin and end in San Juan, which is easily reached by air from any major U.S. city.
