HISTORY - The Caribbean is more then just a collection of islands or a body of water; it is a mindset; an attitude.
Spanning both North and South America, The Caribbean’s climate and culture comes from the warm currents of the Gulf Stream, the cool breeze of the tradewinds and the indelible impact of history. The legacies of European imperialism and the African slave trade help to define the mixture of the people to this day. This unique combination of nature and nurture makes the Caribbean diverse and laid back. You can’t help but be relaxed as you gaze upon crystal blue waters while the gentle lilt of English, French, Spanish and African languages wafts across the beach.
One of the best ways to catch a glimpse of the Caribbean is on a cruise. For example, Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas, departing Miami, explores the Western Caribbean with Ports of Call at Labadee Haiti, Montego Bay Jamaica, Georgetown Grand Cayman and Cozumel Mexico. Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines operates some of the world’s largest, most luxurious ships, so it’s a great way to relax, get spoiled, see the sights and of course, shop.
