Practice your Geography Skills on a 10-Night Southern Caribbean Cruise
Some people are fascinated by globes and maps. I am one of those people. Every time I am in a room that has a map or a globe my eyes immediately wander towards it. There is something about reading the names of unknown places and then imagining what they are like that gets my juices going.
The Caribbean is a geographic area that is particularly interesting to me. The little dots on the map hold untold mysteries and histories that are rich once they are learned. The best way to visit these islands is by boat and since I have finally reconciled with the notion that I won’t be independently wealthy with my own personal yacht by the age of 30 the best boats to visit these islands on are cruise ships.
Holland America has a 10-night cruise of the Southern Caribbean that is especially intriguing for a geography buff. The voyage starts in Florida and stops in the Bahamas, St. Thomas, Dominica, Curacao, and Aruba along the way. Those little dots on the map will come to life with each stop and after you are done you’ll never look at the Caribbean the same way again. What’s more, you’ll have a lot of fun in the process even if the mere site of a map makes you run away in horror.
