WHY WE RECOMMEND Caribbean CRUISES
Arguably one of the world’s most popular and iconic cruise destinations, the Caribbean is a holidaymaker’s paradise. This famous archipelago is made up of a number of secluded and picturesque tropical islands, each with its own beautiful and scenic landscape alongside a laid-back local culture, all complemented by a wonderfully warm climate.
The Caribbean’s many idyllic island destinations boast plenty of pristine golden sandy beaches, crystal clear ocean waters and friendly locals, so visitors will always feel welcome wherever in the region they travel. However, the islands are not limited to their natural beauty, as much of the Caribbean also has a rich local culture and an illustrious history, often on display in the form of landmarks and fascinating museums as well as charming dining venues and bustling marketplaces.

Christopher Columbus anchored his ships in Montego Bay in 1494 when he discovered Jamaica on his way from Cuba, naming the bay “Golfo de Buen Tiempo,” or “Fair Weather Gulf.” It wasn’t until 1655 that Montego Bay, today Jamaica’s second-largest city, came under British rule. Those influences are still evident in the city’s colourful British colonial architecture, including St. James Parish Church, and along the city’s cobblestone streets, which bear the secrets of the island’s slavery past at Sam Sharpe Square and the Cage, a prison for runaway slaves. Today, the city centre is dominated by Gloucester Avenue, the main street or “Hip Strip,” replete with souvenir shops, bars and locals touting their wares. When you arrive on an MSC Caribbean and Antilles cruise to Jamaica’s northwest coast, explore Jamaica like a local on one of our MSC excursions. Our Go Native tour lets you follow the rhythm of reggae, observe endemic flora and fauna, enjoy a typical Jamaican meal, and unwind on a picture-postcard beach. Or take an MSC excursion to Doctor's Cave, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island that was believed in the 1920’s to have waters with curative powers. Named after an old entrance through a cave and the bathing club of doctors who used to frequent it, the beach boasts beautiful white sand, majestic palm trees, and crystal-clear water sheltered from the currents. As you may have heard, Jamaica is the home of jerk. For a mouth-watering culinary adventure, bring your appetite along as you taste your way through three restaurants and quench the heat with Jamaica's local brews on an exclusive Martha Stewart excursion curated for MSC. In addition to the jerk tastings, a visit to the Harbour Street Craft Market, a rum punch mixology class and a catamaran sunset sail around the harbour is included in the package. Or let us take you on a thrilling adventure through Rose Hall Mansion, where stories of witchcraft, black magic, murder and slaves exacting revenge on their masters abound at the Great House, one of the old manor houses of the sugar lords. Rose Hall, an 18th-century Georgian-Jamaican style mansion belonging to the Palmer family, sits on a hilltop, offering a fantastic panoramic view of the entire coast. The house is believed to be haunted by the ghost of Annie Palmer, the White Witch of Rose Hall, who murdered her four husbands and numerous slaves working on the surrounding sugar plantation.

The second discovery yacht in the Scenic Eclipse fleet will set sail on her maiden voyage from Athens to Lisbon, before her debut season, when the luxury ocean cruise ship will chart its way to the European and Russian Arctic, sailing through both the White Sea and Northwest Passage.
Russia’s White Sea is still in many ways a great mystery due to geographic isolation; however, it is one of the most naturally stunning locations on the planet, and an ideal destination for avid explorers. Meanwhile, the Northwest Passage, which routes from the Pacific to the Arctic Ocean, along the coast of North America, offers an exceptional polar exploration experience.
