Board the Carnival Pride® in Baltimore for a weeklong cruise to popular ports in the eastern Caribbean. After 2 rejuvenating days at sea, get out and explore the palm-dotted beaches, colonial ruins and prime snorkeling locales on the island of Grand Turk in Turks and Caicos. Next, sail to Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas, also known as Little San Salvador Island, and cool off in turquoise waters and the fresh Bahamian breeze.
Then head to Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, known for its offering of water activities, shopping opportunities, and cultural events and festivals that take place throughout the year. Spend another refreshing day at sea before returning to Baltimore.
What we love:
• Grand Turk is the site of Christopher Columbus’ initial landfall during his famous voyage in 1492.
• Bahamian straw markets provide you with an opportunity to test your bargaining skills and try to get a good deal on handmade baskets, guava jellies, woodcarvings, mats, hats and more.
• The Garden of the Groves in Freeport is the archipelago’s preeminent botanical garden, featuring indigenous and migratory butterflies and birds, lush foliage, and a labyrinth based on the one at Chartres Cathedral in France.
