Key West

Key West

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Sunny weather, friendly people, and generous drinks make Key West an ideal port stop during The Melissa Etheridge Cruise! This tropical paradise has something for everyone. 

Known as the Southernmost Point, Key West is home to the only living coral barrier reef in the continental U.S. It is most notable for its laid back attitude and beautiful sunsets. Don't miss Duval Street, fresh seafood, margaritas, and water excursions. And be sure to treat yourself to the official dessert of the island city, key lime pie!

The golden beaches, swaying palm trees and fragrant air are just a prelude to what surrounds this beautiful city. Within the nearby jungle-covered mountains are the magnificent Dunn's River Falls, the foliage of Fern Gully and the untouched beauty of the White River.

It’s our own private island in the Bahamas where only The Melissa Etheridge Cruisers are allowed. With its white sand, majestic palms, and clear blue waters it’s as awesome as it sounds. Grab a snorkel, hang a hammock, or enjoy a beachside barbeque while you soak in the rays!
