Escape the crowds on a Caribbean or Central America exploration cruise and discover parts of the region that aren’t often visited or all that accessible by other means.
Although the mainstream Caribbean is far from off-the-beaten path, there are parts of the region that are much less visited and that benefit from this type of low-key cruise. Venture off the main routes and instead explore the Lesser Antilles, where large ships can’t access the ports of call; drop in on the Grenadines or take time to discover Dominica.
Alternatively, set sail for Central America and use Zodiac dinghies to venture into the rainforest or access desert islands. Explore the cloud forest of Costa Rica or look out for Mayan ruins elsewhere in the region and realise that this region is ripe for exploration.
