Caribbean cruises can be subdivided into three main categories: Eastern, Western, and Southern. Eastern and Western itineraries primarily begin and end in Florida, which makes them convenient and a little less expensive for air connections. The months of December and early January can be cool in Florida on embarkation, but warmer weather is more likely once the ship sails further south. Eastern itineraries often call on the "shopping ports" such as St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Nassau, and San Juan. Western itineraries often call on the "snorkelling and watersports" ports of Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen, and Ocho Rios. Southern Caribbean cruises typically leave from San Juan, although some smaller ships may use another port. Airfare is usually approximately $200 more expensive, and often involves a connection, unless charter flights are possible, or departure is from a major US hub. Southern cruises are usually a bit more port intensive, visiting a port every day but one. These can be a little less relaxing, especially if you feel the need to see everything, but are great for those who want to take it all in. Average age on board most seven day Caribbean cruises is approximately mid-forties, with good representation in ages between mid twenties and mid sixties.
