Cruise the Caribbean in Central America!
When you embark on a Central America cruise, it's about the journey just as much as the destination.

Cruises to the Central America Caribbean coast and islands, as well as southern Mexico, are often called Western Caribbean cruises (as opposed to Eastern Caribbean cruises). Western Caribbean cruises are usually summer cruises, while Panama Canal cruises tend to depart in the winter.

Visit About.com’s Guide to Cruises for more information about cruises, including descriptions of specific ships and ports of call.
