Atlantic crossings can stop in the Azores – Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel is not in the Caribbean, but in the Azores mid-Atlantic. Because of its position the island is visited on many Caribbean cruises to and from the UK. Many cruising fans will book this crossing just for the ship and the journey. If you stop in Azores, Doris Bar is on the harbour front, behind Moby Dick Tours and before Atlantic Bowling.
