Bahamas or Caribbean cruise – Which is better?

Bahamas or Caribbean cruise – Which is better?

 

Bahamas or Caribbean? This cruise question never gets old, especially for first-time cruisers. Even seasoned travelers have their fair share of inquiries. Either way, you can never go wrong with a cruise to the Bahamas or Caribbean.

Here’s why:

Cruises to the Bahamas and the Caribbean are very appealing to anyone looking for a getaway. Not only is the onboard experience wonderful, but so are the islands that are a part of the cruise itinerary.

So which one is the better cruise? The answer lies solely on the cruise itinerary.

The cruise itinerary will decide the places you are going to visit, the type of ship you will be sailing in and the length of the trip.

Needless to say, not every itinerary is a right fit. Here are some questions you should keep in mind:
Are you looking for some fun in the sun? Better yet, would you like to stop at different ports each day? Or would you rather relax for several days at sea?

Whether you choose a Bahamas or Caribbean cruise, the one you choose should fit your getaway expectations. You should figure out where you want to visit and the best cruise ship that will take you there.

With that in mind:

Let’s explore the differences between the two cruise itineraries so you can enjoy your next Bahamas or Caribbean cruise:

Bahamas or Caribbean Cruise Itinerary

The biggest difference between a Bahamas and a Caribbean cruise is the itinerary, which consists of islands that you will visit and the ship that will take you there.

You should expect a cruise to the Bahamas to stay within the limits of the Bahamas. Typically, a cruise to the Bahamas leaves southern Florida and feature ports in Grand Bahama Island, such as Nassau and Freeport.

But isn’t the Bahamas in the Caribbean? No.

The Bahamas are not considered as part of the Caribbean. So don’t expect to go to the Bahamas on a Caribbean cruise.

And we don’t stop there:

Since Florida is so close to the Bahamas, you will find that cruises to the Bahamas consist of three and four-night options. This is very common for Bahamas cruise because the Bahamas only has two ports, which are Nassau and Freeport.

Therefore, you should expect to have a short duration and a less expensive cruise. This is a great option for those who what quick weekend getaway at an affordable price.

On the other hand:

A Caribbean cruise will consist of a variety of islands in the Caribbean Sea, which may not include the Bahamas. Usually, a Caribbean cruise feature ports in Mexico, Costa Maya, Jamaica and from time to time ports in Central America.

Consequently:

If you’re looking for an extended getaway, a.k.a vacation, you should consider a Caribbean cruise. Obviously, the longer the cruise, the more money you will have to dish out. Nine times out of ten, it’s will be all worth it.

Final Thought

Even though the Bahamas or Caribbean cruise itineraries are different, they are both great options for first timer cruisers and seasoned travelers. You can easily have a mini getaway or a real vacation. Regardless, it will always feel like there’s never enough time.

So if you want a quick getaway to sun, sand and sea, you should select a cruise to the Bahamas, but if you’re looking for a longer cruise, which means a more islands and sea time, you should select a Caribbean cruise.

We just wanted to say thank you, we had a lot of fun on the cruise! Besides being sunburned haha, but if you see another one of those bahama cards filled out by me again its because we want to win again and go back. It’s required by the bahama people we met, they said “we are making you come back to see us”. So I said we will and I hope we win another one, we would definitely go again and do it all over!
