We’ve probably all joked at some time in our lives about being able to run away to a private island and relax in the luxury we so rightly deserve, haven’t we? Well, the good news is that the idea isn’t as pie in the sky as it might sound, because with Jetline Cruise, some of our superb Caribbean cruise packages enable you to you to do exactly that…

Escape to Luxury and Privacy

These days you don’t need to be Richard Branson to enjoy the benefits of a private island. We work with the world’s best lines, and some of them have invested in ownership of their own gorgeous private island in order to add value and luxury to their passengers’ Caribbean cruise experience. Private ownership means exclusivity, which means fewer people, better service, tailor-made activities, and a generally more relaxed vibe.

The vessels moor offshore and passengers are transferred across to enjoy a day of fun in the sun – with bars, restaurants, open-air BBQs, beach facilities (hammocks and sun loungers), water sports and more. With a full staff on hand to ensure the smooth running of everything, you’re absolutely guaranteed to have a truly memorable experience.

(If you want to take a different approach, some die-hard cruisers actually like to take advantage of the mass exodus from the ship and enjoy a little me-time on the near-empty vessel!)

While part of making the most of one of our Caribbean cruise packages are getting out and exploring the local culture, sometimes it’s nice to just sit back, relax and enjoy yourself a little private island…We’ve got a range of packages that will allow you access to some of these private tropical islands. Sound tempting?

Princess Cays

With exclusive use for the passengers of Princess Cruises, Princess Cays comprises a stunning 40 acres on the southern tip of Eleuthera, near Nassau. So while it’s not the entire island (there are actually around 1,100 residents occupying the rest), you’d certainly never know it. Since 1992, Princess’s passengers have been able to come ashore to delight in the glorious white-sand beaches, sunbathe, swim, eat, drink or simply relax.

You can enjoy the trappings of royalty at Princess Cays with our Fort Lauderdale Beach and Caribbean Island Hopping itinerary. This 12-night package delivers the 5-star service and amenities of a Caribbean cruise, with a stop at Princess Cays just one of the many highlights.  

Labadee & CocoCay

Royal Caribbean passengers get the privilege of experiencing not one, but two private islands.

Labadee, located on Haiti’s north coast, is 260 acres of pure, unadulterated beach bliss. You can take advantage of the fantastic snorkeling in the numerous lagoons, enjoy an exhilarating ride on the Dragon’s Breath Flight Line (a 2,600 zip line), take a cultural tour, dine at a beach BBQ, or – you know the drill – just relax.
