Canadian Xpress® Caribbean Cruise Tour


Introduction
White sand beaches and private islands await in this tropical vacation paradise. From the coast of Florida to the Panama Canal, the Caribbean and Gulf coast is full of wonders to discover.

Many of the islands are in fact overseas territories governed by European countries or the United States, while others are their own sovereign countries. Air travel is a must in the islands for residents since it's one of only two ways to get people and supplies in and out. Most islands have at least one airport, while only a few have access to a large deep-water seaport.

Tourism is by far the largest industry in the region, with vacationers arriving by boat and by plane at all times of the year, and from all corners of the globe. Some stay only a few hours before moving on to the next island in the chain, while others stay for days or even weeks. Tropical storms and typhoons are also frequent visitors, and such events can cause devastating effects on the islands and their inhabitants.

It's not all sunshine and rich tourism though, as the region is also home to the poorest countries in the Americas. Many of them put up a front as a glitzy tourist destination, as well, while most of the population struggle to survive. For these countries, supply, mission, and humanitarian flights are often just as important, if not more so, than the tourist flights.

The Canadian Xpress® Caribbean Cruise Tour consists of 88 legs which must be flown in order. Starting in West Palm Beach, Florida, the jumping-on point for many of the cruise ships that ply the waters in the area, and what follows is a 8,500 nm tour of 88 stops spanning 30 countries following the island chain south and east, before turning and following the coastline up the western side of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, to the Florida Keys before finally returning to Palm Beach International Airport.

All Canadian Xpress® pilots that successfully complete the tour will receive 25 bonus hours as well as the Canadian Xpress® Caribbean Cruise Tour Award that will appear in their Pilot Details section of the Pilot Roster.
