Depending on what route you have taken for your Caribbean cruise it is very useful to have good prior knowledge of the places you will be visiting. You have already a great array of activities to keep you busy on board your cruise but you must also take advantage of the wonderful places you will stop at to take a break from the on board activities. So without further ado here is a small run down of the best Islands you simply must see in your Caribbean cruise.

1. St. Croix.

If you have chosen to cruise around the Eastern side of the Caribbean, St Croix in the Virgin Islands offers great facilities if you are a sporty type as you can go kayaking. But if you are more interested in history here you can also visit the landing site of Christopher Columbus.

2. St. Thomas

Still in the Virgin Island in St. Thomas you will find a perfect venue for snorkeling at the Cinnamon Bay National Park. This is because St. Thomas' surrounding water is very shallow enabling you to see the wonderful creatures living underwater.

3. Grenada

To see the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean Grenada is the place to visit. But also if you like to scuba dive there are great under water sights here. You will be able to see lots of underwater volcanoes as well as colorful tropical fish. Even though hurricane Ivan devastated this island in 2004 it is still very much a place you must visit if you can.

4. Jamaica

If you stop over in Jamaica as well as the busy markets you can go and visit the resting place of Bob Marley and if you are into extreme sports you can also go Bamboo rafting.

5. Puerto Rico

Worth a quick visit as Puerto Rico has one of the most famous beaches in the world: Condado Beach

6. Aruba

This small island in the Dutch Antilles has no less than 365 beaches. With that many you will struggle not to find a spot where you will be able to relax and take in the sun and sea. It is considered by many as the paradise island of the paradise that is the Caribbean.
