Western Caribbean cruises - islands and tourist attractions
The Bahamas - let yourself in for riveting adventures, such as feeding alligators, while at the same time enjoying the languor of beaches lapped by turquoise waters right out of paradise. Discover the many facets of the independent island state of Jamaica with her Blue Mountains that tower up to a height of 2200 metres, the near-deserts in the south and the lush, dark-green north. Let your Western Caribbean Cruise take you to Haiti, the country which occupies the western half of the island of Hispanola. The ruins of the Sans Souci palace will take you back into Haiti's history. The Macaya National Park, with its wild beaches, will leave you with impressions rich in contrast. The Cayman Islands are an equally popular destination for cruise ships. The island's freedom from taxation has made its capital, George Town, into one of the world's most important financial centres. At the same time, the gigantic coral banks and wonderful beaches ensure that no watersports enthusiast or sun worshipper need go away disappointed.
