There are various Southern Caribbean cruises that feature Antigua as a port of call, and the majority of cruise ships arriving in Antigua dock at Nevis Pier in St John's, the island's capital.

St John's boasts great shopping centres and an array of wonderful restaurants, as well as a good variety of accommodation options. Antigua is known for having 365 beaches, one for every day of the year! If visitors can pull themselves away from these stunning beaches, another attraction definitely worth visiting is Nelson's Dockyard, in English Harbour - an historical testament to Antigua's past as a Royal Navy base. If there's still time, it's also possible to take a trip out to Redonda, the world's smallest island kingdom, or visit the unspoilt island of Barbuda.

Of the numerous cruise lines offering a Southern Caribbean cruise, many have seasonal specials or package deals available to potential passengers. The Caribbean offers superb weather all year round, making a cruise to Antigua one of those must-do vacations.
