First Caribbean Cruise, which islands/itinerary?

Jump to last reply

I have cruised solo but I've never cruised in the Caribbean. I have never visited any Caribbean islands that cruise ships frequently travel to. I would like to know which of these two cruises you'd recommend. The Carnival option is about $350 less than RCI. I have no interest in the cruise ship or the primary differences between the two ships. I am more interested in the ports and which itinerery is best.

The first cruise is on the Carnival Victory, from San Juan. Here's the itinerary:-

Day 1, San Juan, dept 10 pm.
Day 2, St Thomas 7 am - 5 pm
Day 3, Dominica 10 am - 6 pm
Day 4, Barbados 8 am - 5 pm
Day 5, St Lucia 8 am - 5 pm
Day 6, St Kitts 8 am - 6 pm
Day 7, St Maarten, 7 am - 5pm
Day 8, San Juan, 7 am

The other choice is on RCI, on Seranade of the Seas. The cruise is 7 nights, 8 days long and the has one sea day. Here's the itinerary:-

Day 1, San Juan, dept 8.30 pm
Day 2, at sea
Day 3, Barbados, 8am - 5pm
Day 4, St Lucia, 8 am - 5 pm
Day 5 Antiguia (St Johns), 8 am - 5pm
Day 6, St Maarten 8 am - 5 pm
Day 7, ST Croix, 7.30 am - 5 pm
Day 8, San Juan.

Which islands combinations are better in the above itineraries?

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thank you.
