Coolest Shore Excursions on Adventure of the Seas

The best adventures to be had and things to do in the southern Caribbean.
by 1018

The southern Caribbean has some of the most exotic islands in the world, like Dominica, St. Kitts, Barbados and more. The myriad of cultural experiences and wild landscapes make this destination extra special. In fact, due to the islands’ close proximity of the equator, the Southern Caribbean has year-round tropical weather.

Sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Royal Caribbean’s southern Caribbean cruises on Adventure of the Seas are sure to appeal to the adventurer in everyone.
