Below we will break down all of the options you have to choose from when sailing from the Port of Miami.

Also included below are the price ranges that the various cruise lines have for their Caribbean cruises out of the Port of Miami. These prices are for entry level, interior staterooms, unless otherwise stated. As each cruise line has many different cruise ships in various stages of aging, you will want to look at the cruise lines fleet to help you in the decision making process. A simple search can find the construction date and any renovation date which can give you an idea of how updated the ships are. Although the phrase, "you get what you pay for" definitely applies, even the cheaper cruises are full of fun and hit some of the same spots, so a cheaper cruise may be perfect for you.

3-5 Day Eastern Caribbean Cruises From Miami

The Eastern Caribbean Cruise from Miami is one of the best all around trips available. This cruise visits the beautiful tropical paradise of the Caribbean islands, and offers large chunks of time on shore for plenty of exploration, eating, shopping and more.

The 3-5 day Eastern Caribbean Cruise out of Miami visits the islands of Grand Bahama, Nassau, Coco Cay, and Key West, among others. Although these trips are through slightly rougher seas than the Western Caribbean cruises from Miami, they offer much more time on shore to truly get the real Caribbean experience.

Western Caribbean 3-5 Day Cruises From Miami

One of the most common cruises, especially for new cruisers is a Western Caribbean cruise. The stops on these cruises generally have cheaper shopping and the cruises are smoother rides as they travel through the Gulf of Mexico, avoiding the rougher seas of the Eastern Caribbean. These cruises also tend to be a little cheaper on average.

The 3-5 day Western Caribbean cruises out of Miami generally focus on Cozumel, Mexico and Grand Cayman, but can include stops at Key West, Florida, Kingstown, Jamaica, or even Colon, Panama. As these are shorter cruises, there will generally be only one or two ports of call and the cruise will include one or two days at sea. Although you are not able to visit a new country on the days at sea, many people enjoy the fun on deck and there are even some avid cruisers who rarely leave the ship when it is docked.

3-5 day Western Caribbean cruises from Miami begin in the $200 range for small interior cabins, with deals available just under that. Cruises can be found on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and Disney.

Few cruise packages offer as much fun, scenery, history, and beauty as a 7-day Caribbean cruise from the Port of Miami. Whether it is in the Eastern or Western Caribbean, you will visit several different islands, have plenty of fun at sea, and return to port wondering when your next cruise will be.

The 6-9 day cruises from Miami visit a large number of destinations including: St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Nassau, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Honduras, Belize, Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Tortola, Antigua, Bassaterre, and more. Each cruise usually includes 3 or 4 ports of call including 8-10 hours of shore time at each. These cruises generally start around $400 but can be found just below that on specials.

The cruise lines offering these cruises include Norwegian, Carnival, and Celebrity and also include the Norwegian Epic, Norwegian's largest ship.

Other Caribbean Cruises From Miami

Cruises from the Port of Miami also include some longer iteneraries. 10-14 day trips from Miami include ports such as: Colombia, Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Dominica, Barbados, St. Lucia, the Panama Canal, Puerto Vallarta, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Denmark, and Cabo San Lucas.

These trips may include starting at Miami and ending your trip at another port, perhaps in another country. They also include cruises that cross the Atlantic which are sometimes done by cruise lines to reposition their fleet for the next season in a different cruise theater. These cruises can also include longer cruises that range from 15-22 night cruises that include transatlantic cruises and Panama Canal cruises. These visit ports such as Barcelona, Rome, Marseille, Naples, San Diego, and more. Although these cruises may be very long, they often visit several ports at a per day cost much lower than any other mode of travel. All one would need to complete the trip is a one way ticket back from Europe.

These long distance cruises begin at around $600 and include Carnival, Celebrity, Costa, and Norwegian cruise lines.
