Bookend your Caribbean cruise with a stay in sultry Miami and the tropical Florida Keys

Florida is a popular jumping-off point for a Caribbean cruise, so why not extend your holiday, exploring the steamy wetlands, sultry cities and sandy shores of the Sunshine State too?

Start in Miami, a sizzling city that sashays to a Latino beat, thanks partly to its many Cuban exiles who hotfooted it from the motherland, bringing the party with them. Sunny, suggestive and never taking itself too seriously, Miami is a city worth lingering in. There’s its delicious, stick-to-your-ribs Latino cuisine and exquisite selection of seafood, its hedonistic nightlife and, of course, the famous art deco architecture.

There's plenty to entertain in sultry Miami

But let’s not forget that cruise – a ship such as the Celebrity Equinox offers all manner of dining facilities and activities on board as it sails between stunning island ports in the Eastern Caribbean. Well-chosen ports of call provide opportunities to marvel at San Juan’s 17th-century San Cristobal fort and tropical rainforest, explore the 37-mile-square St Maarten and drink in the natural beauty of St Kitts.
