We are a well travelled Australian family of two adults and a 15 y/o seeking advice on where to go for the best first time experience in the Caribbean for 10 nights.
We have a budget of $10,000 AUD for the 10 nights (5 nights split between two places would be ideal!) to spare before our 20 day Caribbean cruise (Royal Princess).
We are a fun family, with adventurous interests and enjoy historical experiences. We are also looking for a little bit of luxury and relaxation.
We are covering most of the Caribbean islands on the cruise and were looking to experience something different (unless one of the destinations on our cruise is worth a return visit.)

Our first option was Punta Cana (accom. -The Reserve)
Second Cancun (already been to Mexico) (accom. - Moon Palace)
Trinidad & Tobago (accom - Coco Reef)
Cuba (we know we cannot get here via USA)
Your suggestions, tips or advice would be extremely helpful!! Especially if you have been to the above places or even stayed at the accommodation we have looked at. If you have advice on one of the destinations on the cruise that is a 'must to go back and stay' please let us know!
Hopefully I have been thorough! Thanks!
