Four women, first time Caribbean cruise

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan a cruise for myself, my sister, and two friends - all in our 50s and 60s. We're active and enjoy a variety of activities. Nightlife is not terribly important, as we're not big partiers, although we would enjoy some evening activities. Ports that offer scenic beauty, good beach time, and/or more adventurous opportunities would be great. Shopping's not critical, but some would be welcome. We rented a house on Oahu last year and had a blast - are looking for something different this time around.

I've started some basic research, but it's overwhelming! We're leaning toward the Caribbean and/or Mexico, we don't want to have to dress up, and we're not into silly poolside games.

Help! Would we be better off on a small ship? Or a mega-boat? And where? Are there specific islands/itineraries we should focus on?

Thanks in advance for any guidance to help me get started.
Karen
