3 Day Caribbean Cruises


Boarding Norwegian Dawn in Nassau





You can find 3 day Caribbean cruises just about anytime of the year.

These short inclusive family cruises are ideal for quick getaways, last minute deals, and spontaneous family trips.

My wife's best friend and two of her sisters decided to celebrate her November birthday on a 3 day cruise to the Bahamas. Two of the sisters live in Palm Bay, while the third lives in New York.

So, for two, it was an easy drive to Port Canaveral to board their Caribbean cruise liner. But for one, it was a good bit of travel.

Yet, they had a good time - three sisters, celebrating together, on the high seas!

Personally, I believe that 3 day cruises are too short. However, if you can spare one or two days off from work; or if your family has something to celebrate but not a lot of time, then 3 day Caribbean cruises are perfect.


Which Cruise Ports 3 Day Caribbean Cruises?

Generally, 3 day cruises will take you to the Bahamas. Therefore, most sailings originate from a Florida cruise port. You will find most 3 day Caribbean cruises sailings from Port Canaveral and Miami.

The residents of Florida are blessed to have access to these sailings. It is more difficult for people to travel from far to board a 3 day Caribbean cruise.

However, since most 3 day cruises sail from Florida, it may be a good idea to plan a combo family vacation - a 3 day cruise plus 3 or 4 days visiting Disney or several other spectacular attractions in Florida.


Which Islands will I visit on 3 Day Caribbean Cruises?


As I noted before, your 3 day cruise will take you to the Bahamas. Your family will most likely visit Nassau, Bahamas, and one of the Caribbean cruise lines' private islands:

Castaway Cay - Disney's private Caribbean resort island;

Great Stirrup Cay - Norwegian's private resort island;

Half Moon Cay - Holland America and Carnival's shared private island; or,

CocoCay, Royal Caribbean's private Bahamian resort.


Which Caribbean Cruise Lines offer 3 Day Cruises?

You will be delighted to know that four of the top cruise lines offer 3 day Caribbean Cruises:

Carnival Cruise Lines;

Disney Cruises;

Norwegian Cruise Lines; and,

Royal Caribbean International.


How much does a 3 Day Caribbean Cruise Cost?

3 day Caribbean cruises are great for last minute getaways and celebrations, but are also great for the price. Expect to find most 3 day cruises starting at less than $400/ person.

Depending on when you sail, you will even find inclusive 3 day Caribbean cruises starting at less than $200/ person.

That's right! Check for sailings from late August through early November.


Which Cruise Line offers the Best Prices for 3 day Caribbean Cruises?

Carnival and Norwegian compete for the lowest price offerings on 3 day cruises. Royal Caribbean prices are generally more. However, you will pay the highest price for a 3 day Caribbean cruise on Disney, but you get what you pay for - your family's Disney Cruise Vacation, while very expensive (it could cost you as much as $500 more per person, will be quite unforgettable.

Please do not misunderstand me - your family will enjoy their family friendly 3 day cruise on any of the four cruise lines, but if you have younger children, they will most definitely relate better to the Disney cruise experience.

Now that you know where 3 day Caribbean cruises will take you, which cruise lines offer these cruises and how much you should expect to pay, let me show you some available cruises.
