The Eastern Caribbean - a prospect that will send tingles down your spine: tropical rainforests and an exotic backdrop of the widest imaginable range of colourful plants and waterfalls, with endless kilometres of natural, idyllic sandy beaches.

The Eastern Caribbean Cruise - where it takes place and when to go

This paradise for cruises lies to the north of the Equator and is peopled by a mixture of the most diverse races. Only very few of the native inhabitants remain. The majority of the population is of African, European, Indian and Chinese origin. The principal languages, alongside French and Dutch, are Spanish and English. The best time for a cruise in these eastern areas is between December and May

The Eastern Caribbean Cruise - islands and tourist attractions

Allow yourself to be entranced by the natural harmony of the Dominican Republic. Lush vegetation of the deepest green, contained within one of the Caribbean's largest rainforest and mangrove nature reserves, makes this a veritable oasis for nature lovers. Friends of water sports will also find this paradise with its crystal-clear waters an ideal location. Puerto Rico, which translates as "rich port", is the smallest of the Greater Antilles islands. Puerto Rico has particular scenic charms: picturesque mountainous regions and unusual cave landscapes in the Parque de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy . Take the Eastern Caribbean Cruise and experience the breathtaking beauty of the British Virgin Island of Tortola. With its laid-back harbour, exotic botanical garden and ruins which evoke its past, Tortola bubbles with a quite particular charm. Arriving in Guadeloupe will be like breathing in a little bit of France. Explore the colourful natural world of Guadeloupe in one of the most beautiful rainforests in the Antilles or visit a typical rum distillery. On the island of Dominica, nature's own island, you will witness the spectacular natural beauty of volcanoes, waterfalls, dense rainforest and orchids.
