The Antilles can be defined simply as a chain of islands in the West Indies, Southern Caribbean. However, that simply means that these islands are mostly located in the Caribbean, and this chain consists of a vast amount of islands perfectly set into sparkling blue waters that boast some of the prettiest beaches in the world. Fringed by palms and powdery sand, the many islands of the Antilles are divided into what is known as the Greater Antilles and the Lesser Antilles. Many of the most popular vacation destinations and cruise ship ports of call in the world are located here such as Turks and Caicos, the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, the Virgin Islands, Costa Rica, and the Cayman Islands are part of this large chain.
Visitors are thrilled when they visit the Antilles due to the mild tropical weather, colorful beauty, exotic fruit, amazing reef system, and cultural diversity that often makes one island completely different from the next. Cruises are one of the best ways to visit many of these islands and enjoy the many activities available. Cruise lines that visit are numerous and include Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, MSC Cruises, Carnival Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, and the Princess Cruise Line. Each cruise line has different itineraries visiting a different mix of island ports.
