Tip #12

Some islands attract more cruise visitors than long-term stays, others get the opposite. Barbados has an equal number of both.

December is a popular month to visit Barbados because of its warm southern location and consistent temperatures in the mid-80s Fahrenheit.

Bridgetown, the island's capital and cruise port, is a large city with plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife.
