The Caribbean is a region of the Americas that consists of the Caribbean Sea, its islands and the surrounding coasts. The region has more than 700 islands, islets, reefs and cays. This makes the Caribbean a popular destination for cruises and beach resorts. Most of the major cruise lines sail to this destination and also have private islands, such as Royal Caribbean's Perfect Day at CocoCay, Norwegian Cruise Line's Great Stirrup Cay, and Disney Cruise Line's Castaway Cay. Our staff LOVES the Caribbean and the variety of islands that provide a unique experience each island you visit. Today we are going to highlight three amazing Caribbean islands that you should visit for your next getaway.
The name “Bahamas” comes from the Spanish words “baja mar”, meaning shallow water or sea. The weather is great year-round so it is the perfect spot to visit any time of the year! Avid snorkelers and scuba divers will love exploring the crystal-clear water and large variety of wildlife. The Bahamas should definitely be on the top of your vacation bucket list if you are looking for a relaxing beach getaway.

Another Caribbean island we are dreaming about is the friendly island of Barbados! This island is 21 miles long and a smile (14 miles) wide and full of picture-perfect beach views! There is so much to do, making it the perfect vacation spot for those who looking for a new adventure. Swim with turtles along the west coast of the island, go underground at Harrison's Cave (a limestone cavern), or try windsurfing in the turquoise waters.
