The Caribbean Running Cruise is designed with every type of runner and walker in mind! You’ll actively explore the islands, meet like-minded new friends, and make new memories.
We’ve wrapped this All-Inclusive running and walking cruise around the authentic sites and activities on six Caribbean Islands including:
Enjoy extensive interaction with Jenny and John at numerous social events, private dining with fellow CRC cruisers and a wonderful sense of camaraderie. In addition to all the wonderful activities aboard the Jewel of the Seas and in port.
It’s a great time for all – we hope to see you there!
