Island Cruises is to make its debut in the Caribbean next year with three fly-cruise itineraries from Barbados.

The Island Star will sail from Barbados from December 4, 2008, to March 26, 2009, on 14-night itineraries, including Grand Cayman, Panama Canal, Jamaica, Cartagena (Columbia), Aruba and Grenada.

Managing director Patrick Ryan said: “We have carried over 350,000 British guests in the Mediterranean over the last six summers and our excellent satisfaction levels have created a loyal customer base. From December 2008, we will be giving these customers an Island Cruises winter holiday option for the first time.”
