If you’ve returned to work in the New Year and the charm of a snowy festive period has been replaced by the reality of early morning car window defrosting, the prospect of enjoying a sun-soaked holiday can feel a million miles away. To melt away the winter blues, we have put together five of 2015’s Caribbean cruise deals we’re most excited about.

The 19 night cruise aboard the Celebrity Constellation takes in a myriad of different luxury destinations throughout the Caribbean in between stays in Florida. The cruise visits the US Virgin Islands, St Barthelemy, Puerto Rico and the beautiful island of Haiti. This package from Cruise1st gives passengers the opportunity to stay in the holiday capital of the world, Florida, for a few nights before setting sail – perfect for families wanting to enjoy the theme parks, incredible weather and beautiful beaches.
Orlando and Eastern Caribbean
A smaller cruise aboard the Freedom of the Seas visits three beautiful beach-side destinations during the nine night trip, including Royal Caribbean’s private resort Cococay. The luxurious resort is the ideal place to relax and enjoy a chilled Pina Colada or a dip in crystal-clear azure waters. The cruise also takes in the US Virgin Islands and beautiful St Maarten.
Western Caribbean from Baltimore
Setting sail from the East-Coast city of Baltimore, Maryland, this 10 night cruise aboard the Grandeur of the Seas from Royal Caribbean takes in a number of beautiful destinations including the Bahamas, Haiti and Mexico.
