It is not too late to get in on the Caribbean Carnival action. Summer carnival heats up, starting with Saint Lucia next week, and Island Routes is offering front row seats for a chance to get up close and personal to all the excitement.

No stranger to the art of celebration, Caribbean Carnival blends masquerade, dance, music and song into a unique festival that incorporates the fine arts, street theatre, and an artistic, musical scene for immense parties and celebrations.
