Fabulous Barbados Weather and Beaches make the Barbados Island a fabulous cruise destination!
Being the most easterly of the Windward Islands, the island of Barbados is really sitting in the Atlantic Ocean. It is about 100 miles east of the string of island called the Lesser Antilles. On the east coast of Barbados one can feel the full strength of the mighty Atlantic. The west coast would find the more tranquil waters of the southern Caribbean where one can find luxurious homes and resorts.
Cruisers and shore vacationers alike find that Barbados is easily accessible from both land and sea. The fabulous Barbados weather and endless beaches seem to be designed to cater to southern Caribbean cruise ship passengers and shore vacationers alike. For this reason, Barbados is a great spot to extend a cruise either before or after your cruise.
Barbados Island is loaded with lots to see and do for both shore vacationers and cruise ship passengers with only limited shore excursion time. In fact, for cruisers, this may itself create a problem - so much to see… so little time!
A cruise vacation shore trip to Barbados on your fabulous southern Caribbean Cruise can include everything from a "pub-crawl" to an afternoon of tea and cricket. Vacationers in Barbados can experience an Atlantic beach, a Caribbean beach or an undersea scuba adventure.
Barbados has warm year round temperatures between 75 and
85 degrees Fahrenheit. Nights are expectedly only slightly cooler. The
prevailing northeast tradewinds blow fairly steadily across Barbados so that
one is never unbearably hot. And relief from the humidity is only a plunge
away in the nearby southern Caribbean.
Barbados is a coral island with beaches made from the
finely ground coral, making them a great cruise vacation shore experience. There are few beaches that are not fine grained white
sand. In the wonderful Barbados weather, this makes for a warm soft beach
experience, just perfect for your
romantic cruise getaway!
