All aboard – ship ahoy! Royal Caribbean cruises to Trinidad Carnival 2023


Tour company Island Sea Fest has joined forces with cruise line Royal Caribbean to deliver an 11-night cruise that takes in Trinidad Carnival 2023.

Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas will begin this “first of its kind” cruise from San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Wednesday 15 February 2023. From there, passengers will head to Trinidad, spending five nights on board their floating hotel in between all that Carnival revelry.

In time-honoured Carnival style, there’s a las lap, as the ship calls at Tobago, Barbados and Saint Lucia to allow passengers some essential post-bacchanal recovery and relaxation. The cruise ends back at San Juan on Sunday 26 February.

The all-in-one charge includes cruise fare, taxes, fees, gratuities, beverages, meals, onboard parties, wi-fi and basic travel insurance. It’s the ultimate all-inclusive party package, in fact!

Last month, Island Sea Fest introduced its ‘Hold Your Spot’ (HYS) offer, which runs until 21 August 2021. For a reservation fee of US$350 per person (which can be split into two payments of $175), customers gain priority access for stateroom options. From 2 September the fee is credited against the cost of the deposit you need for the cruise, but if you change your mind by 1 September the HYS fee is partially refundable.

Using one of the payment plans, it looks like the cost of the cruise will be between $3,250 and $4,500 per person, but it doesn’t include flights, carnival fetes and shows or other extras, and exact fees will depend on the accommodation you select.

Guests can pay for their cruise in instalments and can purchase an upgrade to the basic insurance to one that covers cancellation “for any reason”.
