Caribbean Cruise Report 2014

Caribbean Cruise Report 2014

Are you wanting to escape the cold this winter?  For 2014 you will find even more choices in Caribbean cruises as the lines pump up their offerings in the region.

Princess will have its largest deployment ever in the Caribbean in 2014 with five ships sailing on more than 160 voyages of 14 different itineraries. Sailings range from four to 20 days, and depart from Ft. Lauderdale and Houston. Among these will be seven-day Eastern Caribbean sailings on the new Royal Princess. Also new are four- and five-day cruises on Ruby Princess offering quick getaway options featuring one to three ports.

Also increasing their capacity in the Caribbean is Crystal Cruises, which is adding more 10 and 11 day voyages and five Trans- Panama Canals (versus one in 2013.)

The big news at NCL is its newest ship, Norwegian Getaway, to home-port year-round in Miami starting in February 2014 offering weekly cruises to the Eastern Caribbean.

Disney Cruise Line has a new seven-night Southern Caribbean itinerary for 2014, when it will home port in San Juan for the first time. The Disney Magic will sail four cruises in September and October to the Southern Caribbean, including Grenada, a new port of call for Disney. It will also call in Antigua, St. Lucia, Barbados and St. Kitts. Disney Magic was recently re-launched with a number of new additions, including a three-story water thrill slide, spa and a new grand atrium lobby. New experiences with Marvel characters will also be part of the fun onboard and represent the first time superheroes from the Marvel universe have been introduced on a Disney Cruise Line ship.

Oceania Cruises has three new autumn Caribbean voyages aboard the Insignia for October and November 2014, a repositioning of the ship during these months due to high demand. The new voyages for Insignia include 10, 12 and 15-day itineraries.
