Caribbean Cruise Holidays

When you think of idyllic holidays, you usually think white sand, crystal-clear waters, swaying palm trees. But there’s plenty more to see beyond the blissful beachfronts. On a P&O Cruises holiday, you can get to the heart of each island.

So much to see and do

Holidaying to the Caribbean with us makes it easy to discover the unique beauty of each destination. And with overnight stays in Barbados and evening calls in St Lucia on selected holidays, you can soak up the sights for a little longer.

Catch some winter sun

The weather in the Caribbean is a tropical one, with average temperatures typically 24-29°C - perfect bathing suit weather! Our ships sail the Caribbean from October to March when it is slightly cooler - ideal for relaxing.

Caribbean food and drink

With cultural influences from all over the world, it’s no wonder Caribbean cuisine is an exciting mix of flavours. And with a number of bustling bars at each port, you're never too far away from a classic Caribbean cocktail. Yum!

Breath-taking beaches

With endless white or golden sands, turquoise shores and laid-back cocktail vibes, nothing beats the Caribbean’s sun-soaked beaches. It’s not hard to see why this part of the world is heavenly for beach lovers.

Fly or sail to paradise

In around 8½ hours, you will find yourself in paradise, ready to embark on a Caribbean adventure. On a chartered flight, once you have checked in your luggage at the airport, we’ll handle everything from there. Alternatively, you can savour the journey and sail from Southampton.
