When Cruises Resume, Most Caribbean Islands Will Have Reopened

Most major cruise lines are currently targeting a August restart date to resume cruises to the Caribbean and Bahamas.

While we don’t know if this time frame is possible yet due to the fluid situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, Caribbean islands are beginning to reopen to tourists.

One of the biggest questions cruisers had about cruises starting back up is asking about which ports will be open for cruise ship visits. After all, the ports are an important part of the cruise planning process.

The good news is that some islands in the Caribbean have already begun to reopen.  Most plan on reopening sometime this summer and most by August.
