With the holidays approaching and schools getting out on breaks, many ships have now started to make their way back to the US to cruise to the Caribbean. Airlines have increased the number of flights from major US hubs to fly direct to many of these included tropical islands. From late November to spring, the Bahamas, Caribbean, and parts of Mexico have an amazing influx of tourists trying to escape their everyday cold weather and stress to relax on a beautiful, warm, tranquil island.
Whether you are visiting multiple tropical islands on a fun-filled luxury cruise ship or staying put at a beautiful resort on the beach, it's the perfect vacation for everyone in your family to find something to do. Scuba, snorkel and swim with bright colored fish or dolphins. Go shopping for local crafts and try new tropical food. Are you adventurous? Hop on an ATV to travel down an uninhabited road or zip-line over beautiful jungles and wildlife. Or, if you are like me, just lay on the soft sand with your feet in the crystal clear turquoise water and a tropical drink in your hand. My family has spent many winter seasons visiting the beautiful Caribbean. Being in the warm air, cool water, and relaxed island atmosphere is definitely an amazing bonding experience for the entire family. (Your kids might even forget about their Xbox!)
Not sure which is the best island for you? Check out U.S. News Best Family Vacations in the Caribbean to pick the perfect vacation spot for you and your family to have a truly memorable winter break.

About the Author
Thanks for cruising by! Along with creating this website and blog, I work in an office full-time and as a mom to two energetic teenage boys. With our family's busy work and school schedule, we look forward to traveling during holidays. Although it seems that our family can never agree on anything, we do when it comes to vacations. We typically travel on cruises or stay at luxury hotels. We enjoy upscale dining, beautiful decor, excellent service, and spacious accommodations. However, we still need family friendly and comfortable. When we are not traveling, I enjoy dining out locally, as well as cooking and baking in my own kitchen.

There is no stopping us! Even though travel has come to a halt, I'm rescheduling, planning, and preparing for the next phase of cruise and travel. Plus, I'm working on making this website even better.
Meanwhile, we are anxiously awaiting the status of next winter's cruise to the ABC islands on Celebrity Cruises. Have you been there?
