Total length of cruise: 104 - nights

Southampton, UK
The United Kingdom's premier passenger ship port, Southampton was home to the great transatlantic liners of yesteryear. The port serves as your gateway to Southern England’s magnificent historic sites, national landmarks, charming villages as well as the great metropolis of London. Southampton is the ideal starting or ending point for a memorable voyage.

Valletta, Malta
The fortifications at Malta’s Grand Harbour speak volumes about her past, indeed her reputation for valour during the Second World war earned her the George Cross and there aren’t too many islands you can say that of! Mosta and Mdina (the silent city) will vie for your attention if you want to go wandering.

Transit Suez Canal

Sharm El Sheikh - Egypt
A fast-developing Egyptian beach resort, Sharm el Sheikh has become a popular Red Sea cruise call, too. On the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula where the Gulf of Aqaba meets the Straits of Tiran, the sheltered waters are simply crystal clear and just asking to be swum, snorkelled or dived in from the pristine, sandy beaches. There are a variety of glass-bottomed and other boat trips on offer, too. Even better for snorkellers and divers is the Marine National Park, the first in the Red Sea, at nearby Ras Mohammed. Here there are coral reefs and gardens which attract just the most beautiful exotic fish. Other visitors will want to visit St Catherines Monastery in the foothills of Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Founded in the 6th Century, it is the oldest Christian monastery in the world.

Aqaba, Jordan
The Jordanian town of Aqaba nestles at the top of the Gulf of Aqaba which leads off the Red Sea. Boasting some excellent sandy beaches and one of the worlds best-preserved coral reefs, this is a popular resort with divers. But the main attraction of this area is the magnificent fortress city of Petra, buried by sand for more than 2,000 years until it was discovered in the desert near Aqaba in the 19th century and excavated in the 1950s. Originally built by Bedouin, the ‘rose red’ city of Petra is a genuine wonder of the world. Make a dramatic entrance by walking through the Siq (gorge) up to the imposing Treasury with its exquisite facade. Further on are temples, tombs and a huge theatre. Elsewhere, visit Wadi Rum, a vast silent landscape of sandstone mountains, desert and ancient bedrocks.

Safaga, Egypt
Arriving at Egypts Red Sea cruise port Safaga is an understated start to a day, which will forever live in your memory. For this quiet and otherwise unremarkable port town is your entry into upper Egypt and the very heart of the countrys existence - the Nile. This great river will also take you to some of Egypt’s most fascinating antiquities. You can explore the lavish tombs, temples and palaces of the pharaohs in the Valleys of the Kings and Queens, Karnak and Luxor (once Ancient Thebes). The huge and magnificent Karnak Temple complex is awe-inspiring. The rich detail in the wall paintings of the tombs depicts the unworldly lives of the Pharaohs and will take your breath away. The spectacular sound and light show at the Karnak Temple is rightly legendary, however, it is held at night and only available to passengers who opt for the overland tours. Safaga is also close to the Egyptian beach resort of Hurghada and the clear waters along this coastline are rated among the worlds best sites for diving.

Salalah, Oman
A real city of contrasts, Salalah combines the charms of contemporary resort life with older Arabic influences to dramatic effect. From its ancient ruins and abundance of frankincense to its stunning beaches and soaring mountainous landscape, there is a wealth of attractions and traditions to explore. Many famous and fabled historic figures are reputed to have resided in the city. Visit the resting place of the biblical prophet, Job, or peruse the once palace of the Queen of Sheba. Salalah’s antiquity can be enjoyed further by a stroll through the lost city of Samhuran or crumbling remains of Al Blaid, which date as far back as the 12th century. The natural beauty that surrounds the city is a pleasant surprise. For its desert location it is blessed with a temperate climate, which allows its lush green countryside to flourish. See the springs of Ain Sahnot or Ain Rzat, follow one of its many mountain streams or admire the impressive heights of the Jabal al Qar.

Muscat, Oman
The Sultanate of Oman’s capital, Muscat, has a magical feel. It is a combination of stunning deserts, mountains and beaches with all the comforts of a bustling, modern metropolis. It’s also the meeting point of Asian, African and Arabic civilizations and this unique blend of cultures makes Oman a special place to visit and explore. The old port area, which is enclosed by gated walls, is where you will find the Sultan’s Main Palace, a fascinating place to wander around. Two well-preserved 16th-century Portuguese forts, Al Jalali and Mirani, guard the entrance to Muscat, and the city walls contain the original beautifully carved gates. Muscat has many points of interest, so whether you want to explore natural freshwater pools, parks and nature reserves, shop in one of the many excellent souks, or relax on unspoilt, soft sandy beaches, this city has something for everyone.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Known as the ‘Pearl of the Arabian Gulf’, Dubai is one of the seven emirates that comprises the United Arab Emirates. With a mix of traditional architecture and glittering modern buildings, Dubai is a place of fascinating contrasts that can best be described as the ‘Middle East meets Hong Kong with a little Las Vegas thrown in for style’. It is also the home of sand, sea and sun. As you sail into the formidable city of Dubai, you can’t help but to gaze up in wonder at the magnificent Burj Al Arab Hotel. Designed to resemble a billowing sail, it stands at a height of 321 metres and dominates the Dubai coastline. Visit Dubai’s waterfront and take a boat trip up Dubai creek, admire the beautiful architecture of the Grand Mosque, boasting the city’s tallest minaret, or barter for souvenirs in the many souks around the city. Don’t miss the Spice Souk and the glittering Gold Souq – crammed full of exquisite jewellery and at prices lower than anywhere else in the world. From designer clothes and custom-made sari’s, to perfumes and spices you can get anything you desire. With guaranteed sunshine the multitude of water sports is spectacular, but your might like to try sand-skiing, 4-wheel drive desert safaris or camel riding. Or for something a little more relaxing enjoy a moonlit Bedouin barbeque, deep in the heart of the desert. The nearby emirate of Sharjah, with its captivating architecture and spectacular souks, was selected by UNESCO as the cultural capital of the Middle East.

Mumbai, India
Gateway to one of the world’s most vibrant cities, India’s cruise port Mumbai (formerly Bombay) offers so many memorable experiences it is hard to know where to begin.Perhaps a stroll along Marine Drive, the broad seafront promenade, which links the skyscrapers and bustle of Nariman Point with the serene greenery of Malabar Hill, is the best introduction to the sheer variety of this fascinating city. Or climb to the top of Malabar Hill to visit the terraced Ferozeshah Mehta Gardens, which overlook the Arabian Sea and the famous Towers of Silence. Then make your way to Crawford’s Market (now Jyotiba Phulle), which will take you back in time to Victorian days - the frieze above its entrance was designed by Rudyard Kipling’s father, and Rudyard’s childhood home lies right opposite. Bargain hunters should not miss the famous Chor Bazaar and the antique shops of Motton Street at its heart, where you can pick up fabulous memorabilia – and do not be afraid to bargain.

Cochin, India
The view of the harbour is immediately recognisable even if you have never cruised to this uniquely picturesque Indian port before. For the lines of fishing nets gracefully hanging down from bamboo frames along the waterfront have inspired artists and hotographers ever since this Chinese fishing style was imported into Indias Kerala region. It is a magical welcome to a mystical place, especially its old town - Fort Kochi (Cochin). This not only has a 16th century Portuguese-built church but a 17th century synagogue for the small community that still remains from the Jewish settlers who arrived 2,000 years ago. There is a bustling new town, Emakulam, too, but you probably still want to spend most of your time moving through the network of canals leading off the Vembavad Lake on which Cochin sits. On their banks and across their bridges, fishermen and their families live much as they have done for centuries.

Colombo - Sri Lanka
For international shopping and restaurants, head for the Fort District in the north of the city and then catch some local colour in the Pettah Bazaar District. This is a warren of streets rich in mosques and Buddhist and Hindu temples and lined with shops selling everything from exquisitely worked gold jewellery (on Sea Street) to herbs for Ayurvedic treatments and bargain-priced CDs and cassettes (Malwatte Avenue). To the south of the city, you can enjoy lush scenery and watch a cricket match at the lovely seafront park of Galle Face Green, then enjoy a stylish afternoon tea at the historic Galle Face Hotel – after admiring the exquisite hand carved doors at its entrance.

Penang - Malaysia
The reason exotic Malaysian cruise port Penang leaves such a lasting impression on visitors becomes clear when you visit its National Museum. Superbly laid out with some sumptuous exhibits, it portrays the rich history of the town and of the many and varied peoples and cultures which have played a part in its development: Malays, Chinese, Indian, British - even Armenians. This multi-cultural heritage makes it a fascinating place to walk around. The town centre, Georgetown, is full of interesting shops and lively markets (including a night bazaar) but, although it is also Malaysias top beach resort, there is no question about Penangs major attraction: the Snake Temple. This is full of still-poisonous reptiles but they are so sedated by the temple incense that they spend all their time dozing and are - they say - no danger to visitors. Look out, too, for the Key Lok Si, the largest and reputedly the finest Buddhist Temple in south east Asia.

Cruises to Singapore have much to offer. The city’s glorious parks have earned it a reputation as the Garden City of the Far East but you will also be cruising into one of the world’s busiest ports. Once ashore, Singapore cruise passengers can enjoy a stroll through the famous Tiger Balm Gardens with its statues of characters from Chinese legend peeping out from the trees. Ornithologists will love the Jurong Bird Park, with its elaborate aviaries, waterfalls and restaurants, while East Coast Park offers hiking and cycling tracks, a marine theme park and beach water sports. This vibrant city is also heaven for shoppers, as you will discover on our Singapore cruises. Head for Orchard Road for bargains on international brands, or soak up some local atmosphere and sample foodie treats while you browse the craft and souvenir stalls of Chinatown, Little India and Mosque Street. For fake designer bargains, haggle your way around Bugis Street market. But don’t forget to leave time for a Singapore Sling amid the colonial splendours of the famous Raffles Hotel.

Borobudur (Semarang), Indonesia
Semarang, the cosmopolitan capital of Central Java, is filled with rambling Dutch colonial architecture, beautiful temples and a vibrant Chinese quarter. This charming, bustling city’s most prominent landmark is Lawang Sewu, which means ‘A Thousand Doors’. But the main attraction here is across the Kedu Plain from the city – the awe-inspiring Borobudur temple. Dating from the 9th century, this Buddhist stupa and temple complex is the single largest Buddhist structure anywhere on earth. It’s decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues, and has a dramatic backdrop of twin active volcanoes. Lost to the jungle for hundreds of years, the temple complex was discovered during the rule of the British governor Thomas Stamford Raffles (the founder of Singapore) in 1814, and is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Bali, Indonesia
Pack your bathers. Your ship calls at Benoa, on the tip of the Nusa Dua Peninsula, which has ocean on both sides, white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see and calm water, making it the water sports centre in Bali. There’s plenty of room on the beach, mind you. Everyone’s in the water parasailing, wind surfing, jet skiing, banana boating, snorkeling and reef fishing. Yet, if you can tear yourself away from the water, Benoa rewards the explorer with its traditional fishing village charm and maze of winding lanes lined with shops, temples and houses huddling harmoniously together. As you’d expect, there’s an abundance of fresh seafood on offer in the many restaurants.

Perth (Fremantle), Australia
The western Australia capital of Perth has a distinctly relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with large areas of parkland leading down to the Swan River and easy access to the ocean. Remarkably, this Australian city is almost as close to Singapore as it is to Sydney which goes to demonstrate the vastness of this under-populated and still-untamed country, as you will discover on our cruises to Perth. Youthful, leisure-biased Perth is blessed with a temperate climate and its modern city centre is easy to walk around with many pedestrian-only shopping streets. Perth cruise passengers should visit the Perth Zoo, home to much local wildlife, as well as Kings Park, which is ideal for cycling and picnics. Alternatively, Perth cruises take you down river to the yachting mecca of Fremantle, or you can head across to the holiday island of Rottnest for diving, snorkelling or plain sunbathing, or go on a tasting tour of the Swan Valley wineries – the choice is yours.

Adelaide, Australia
The first thing to say about the easy-going South Australian city of Adelaide, which sits at the mouth of the Torrens River, is that it is a gourmet’s delight with a huge range of restaurants and cafés. Food and wine should always be high on the agenda for any cruise visitor to this European-influenced gateway to the outback. Hot, dry summers (our winters) give the city an almost Mediterranean feel as people spill out onto the streets enjoying outdoor dining or wandering through the impressive Botanical Gardens, location of the Bicentennial Conservatory, the largest glasshouse in Australia. Another highlight of Adelaide cruises is the South Australian Museum, with the world’s largest collection of Aboriginal artefacts, well worth to visit. From Adelaide, your cruise tour leads you to the wineries along the Murray River and Barossa Valleys – prime grape-growing regions. Only an hour away from the centre of the city, they make for fascinating side trips. You can also catch the ferry across the bay to Kangaroo Island where kangaroo, wallabies, koalas and platypuses can be viewed in their natural habitats. More can be seen at the Cleland Wildlife Park and in the Coorong National Park. With such a variety of destinations, cruises to Adelaide deliver all the adventure associated with experiencing a rich and varied culture.

Kangaroo Island, Australia
Cameras at the ready. Kangaroo Island, Oz’s third largest island – and sometimes known as the Australian Galapagos – is teeming with all the Australian fauna you could you could wish for. One-third of the island is protected parkland and there can be no better place to view many of Australia's unique animals in the wild. From a smaller, darker, long-haired version of the western grey kangaroo to koalas, wallabies, seals, sea lions, wombats, echidnas and the marine emblem of the South Australian state, the rare leafy seadragon. Once you’ve feasted your eyes on the wildlife, time to feast for real. The island has a well-deserved gourmet reputation for seafood, eucalyptus and wild flower honey, artisan cheeses, olive oils and world class wine. And if you have the energy after all that, the turquoise waters and long, curved, sandy beach of Vivonne Bay is rated by Sydney University as the best beach in Australia.

Melbourne, Australia
Cruises to cosmopolitan Melbourne, which is Australia’s second largest city, bring into your holiday a combination of distinctly European feel with the home country’s celebration of the outdoor life. Set on the Yarra River and close to national parks and beaches, the city certainly loves its sport from Australian Rules Football and cricket to horse racing and grand prix motor-racing. While, for culture-vultures, Melbourne cruise must-visits include the Victorian Arts Centre with its magnificent concert and theatre complex allied to the National Gallery housing Australia’s greatest collection of fine art; and the Melbourne Museum, the largest in the country with fascinating displays of Aboriginal artefacts. One of the best ways to get an immediate feel for the city is to jump on a vintage tram which will rattle you around the key sights in the city centre. Cruises to Melbourne also benefit from the town’s hugely diverse cultural mix which makes for an incredible variety of cuisine, from Greek and Spanish to Chinese and Vietnamese. Many also operate a BYO (Bring Your Own) policy, allowing diners to buy their favourite tipple cheaply elsewhere and then take it in to drink with their restaurant meal.

Sydney, Australia
One of the world’s great cities and harbours, Sydney always lives up to great expectations. When you are on one of our Sydney cruises, the first glimpse of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House will stay in your memory forever. Even before the 2000 Olympics, cruises to Sydney had much to offer – hosting the games just made the city even better with improved facilities and extra dining and entertainment venues all round. From the waterside restaurants fringing the historic Rocks district, the Sydney cruise tour takes you around Sydney Cove past the Circular Quay ferry terminal to that remarkable Opera House and the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens.

Cruise into Milford Sound
Milford Sound is one of New Zealand’s most famous attractions, also known as New Zealand’s Fjordland. Maori legend tells of how this spectacular scenery was created by a godly figure that carved the land with his magical steel blade. Dominated by dramatic Mitre Peak, countless waterfalls stream down the fern-covered hillsides. You’ll sail through three magnificent fjords on this morning cruise through Milford Sound. Keep a lookout for seals and penguins on the rocks below the sheer cliffs.

Cruise into Doubtful Sound
Doubtful Sound (discovered by Captain Cook in the 1700s) is the deepest and second largest fiord in New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park. It’s a vast and breathtaking wilderness of rugged glacier-carved mountains, carpeted with dense and bountiful rainforest, which is broken every now and then by a spectacular waterfall thundering into the water below. Its three distinct winding arms and numerous islands set this fiord apart from its sisters. As you make your way slowly and expertly through the fiord you may catch a glimpse of some of its famous residents – the bottlenose dolphins and fur seals – as they play in the pure water. Keep your eyes peeled too for the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin often found on the small islets at the entrance to the fiord. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity as you drink in the sheer scale and beauty of this place and marvel at the power of Mother Nature.

Cruise into Dusky Sound
As you glide into the still waters of New Zealand’s largest fiord you’ll be gazing upon the exact same sight as Captain Cook witnessed over 240 years before you when he discovered Dusky Sound (or Dusky Bay as he named it) for the first time. Cook returned here in 1773 (three years after his initial discovery) to spend time observing the wildlife which had so impressed him on his first visit. It was the diverse birdlife that inspired the place names that he created —Shag River; Seal Rock; Curlew, Shag, Petrel, Seal, Pigeon, and Parrot Isles; Goose, Duck, and Woodhen Coves. Its remote location has ensured that Dusky Sound remains wonderfully unspoilt and it’s therefore still the perfect spot to see a wonderful array of bird and sea life and you’ll have the very best view from your ship as you gently make your way deeper into the sound.

Dunedin, New Zealan
Dunedin cruise destination is the home to New Zeland’s only true castle – Larnach Castle. Argued to be one of the best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere, the impressive Dunedin Railway Station is a fine example of the ornate architecture found throughout the city. This ‘Edinburgh of the South’ is well deserving of its title. Cruises to Dunedin will take you through a fascinating journey of history where you can discover the town’s Scottish roots and enjoy a taste of Scotland in the local style. As you wander through this warm-hearted and captivating city, there are Scottish influences throughout, including a statue of the famous poet Robert Burns, the woodland gardens of Glenfalloch and Dunedin’s First Church.

Christchurch (Akaroa), New Zealand
Akoroa, meaning “long harbour” in Maori, certainly lives up to its name. Set on a beautiful, sheltered harbour, Akaroa is now a popular resort. Seek out the best spots for dolphin watching with tours from the harbour or relax on land at one of the welcoming bars or restaurants. Alternatively take a tour to Christchurch.

Wellington, New Zealand
New Zealand’s capital and cruise port Wellington, is blessed with a wonderful setting, overlooking a glittering harbour filled with bobbing sailing boats. Behind the gleaming modern skyscrapers of its centre, you will find the city’s history well preserved in some outstanding old buildings. Embark on one of our cruises to Wellington and visit the second-largest wooden building in the world, the old Government Building – which was built in 1876. To see New Zealand’s story brought most vividly to life, your Wellington cruise tours include a visit the Te Papa Museum, a multi-level extravaganza of hands-on learning where you can explore a Maori meeting house, take a virtual reality bungee jump or even experience an earthquake. When Wellington cruises have so much to offer, make time, too, to enjoy lunch with a view on the city’s lively waterfront, then take a four minute ride in the Kelburn cable car to see the marvellous views from the top of Mount Victoria.

Tauranga, New Zealand
Tauranga is a Maori name, translated as resting place for canoes. Situated on a narrow peninsula and surrounded by water, Tauranga cruise destination lies within the Bay of Plenty, an area with beautiful natural harbours and endless beaches. Highlights of Tauranga cruises include a real ‘back to nature’ tour of Oraka Wapiti Deer Park, Waikato Stud and Longlands Farm. Bars and restaurants are dotted along The Strand, an area ideal for strolling around. At Rotorua listen to the pulsating rhythms of a traditional Maori Haka and see the seething, bubbling cauldron of geysers and mud pits.

Auckland, New Zealand
New Zealand’s biggest city and major cruise port, Auckland, sits between the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea, which is how it came to host the America’s Cup twice - in 1999 and 2002 - attracting investment to transform the harbour side into a superb meeting and eating place which all Auckland cruise visitors can now appreciate. The Viaduct Harbour area now boasts outdoor restaurants ideally placed to view the hundreds of yachts attracted to this icon of sailing success. This ‘City of Sails’ is also home to New Zealand’s impressive National Maritime Museum which charts the nation’s seafaring history. Harbour ferries offer a great way of viewing the city, either by crossing the bay to old-established Devonport or under the harbour bridge to the suburb of Birkenhead. Otherwise cruises to Auckland take in all the sights from the revolving restaurant at the top of the Sky Tower, the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere at 328 metres. On Auckland cruises, shore excursions can take you to the remarkable geysers and mud pools of Rotorua.

Lautoka, Fiji
Fijis main cruise port, Lautoka, on its largest island (Viti Levu) is very much a working city, steeped in the sugar and timber industries which makes it an even more fascinating experience for visitors. There is a chance to capture the essence of Fijian life here. Past the avenue of Royal Palms along the main street, the ornate Sikh and Krishna temples and mosques give away the presence of a large Indian population. It is that contrast between Indian and Fijian lifestyles which gives an extra buzz to the city. Worth a visit are the bustling daily market and the thriving botanical gardens while, outside the city, the National Heritage Park and the Viseisei village - said to be the oldest settlement in Fiji - are the most popular tours on the spectacularly scenic northern side of the island.

Apia, Samoa Islands
Step straight into a film set for ‘South Pacific’ when you arrive in the Samoan capital, Apia – it’s a magical first impression. On the main Samoan island of Upolu, there’s an intriguing mix of historic churches and monuments, bustling flea and fish markets and laid-back residential districts that have a welcoming, traditional village feel to them. Around the island are some of the South Pacifics best (black sand) beaches. And to prove this really is a ‘Treasure Island’, visit Vallima just outside Apia, where Robert Louis Stevenson settled and spent the last five years of his life. There is an excellent museum nearby, dedicated to this splendid storyteller.

Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaiian Islands
If you associate Hawaii with flower garlands, grass-skirted hula dancers, fabulous beaches and spectacular volcanic scenery, a call at the capital and main Hawaiian cruise port, Honolulu, will more than live up to your expectations. With its alfresco, whitewashed shopping malls, elegant hotels and magnificent Waikiki Bay, this city is hedonism personified. You can spend a perfect day ashore browsing the designer boutiques and enjoying a lazy lunch in a waterfront hotel garden before retiring to the soft sands and warm waves that surround the island. And if that is not enough, there are plenty of other things to do – including tours to historic Pearl Harbour or lovely Waimea Falls Park, where you can watch daredevil locals diving from the towering cliffs which surround the spectacular waterfall into the churning waters below. If you are feeling daring yourself, you can also take a flight over the island’s stunning volcanic scenery in a helicopter or a light plane.

San Francisco, USA
Cruising under the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco is one of the world’s greatest travel experiences for it acts as gateway to a fascinating city set across dozens of hills overlooking the bay. The hippies are long gone but San Francisco’s scenic beauty, laid-back ambience and more than 3,000 restaurants make it a joy to visit. The famous Fisherman’s Wharf harbourfront restaurant and multi-coloured boats complex, where seals happily sunbathe on its wooden decking, faces out towards the former island prison of Alcatraz which is now a major tourist attraction just like the city’s colourful Chinatown district and upmarket shopping centre in Union Square. And no visit to San Francisco would be complete without a trip on the city’s 130-year-old tram system carrying you up and down the improbably steep streets made famous by that stomach-churning Steve McQueen car chase in the movie Bullitt. From the city, you can also visit the pretty resorts of Sausalito and Monterey.

San Diego, USA
If you’ve been ‘California dreaming’ you’ll love San Diego, located on South California’s Pacific coast. See the dream come alive in its immaculate beaches, tanned surfers and inline skaters and soak up its casual, friendly vibe. With the city rimmed by mountains and situated across 200 canyons, San Diego’s topography and location is amazing. Nowhere is this more evident than Balboa Park – a sprawling 1,200-acre urban park which is home to gardens, walking trails, museums, theatres and the famous San Diego Zoo. From its desert cactus garden to its Japanese friendship garden, it is a must for nature lovers and the green-fingered.

Cabo San Lucas - Mexico
Welcome to Mexico’s party town. But, fear not, Cabo still has plenty more tricks up its sleeve to charm visitors seeking daylife, not nightlife. On the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, Cabo has a relaxed atmosphere. There are glorious beaches and the sapphire sea, protected by the rugged limestone splendour of sea-arched Land’s End. The high energy water sports options are endless: jet-skiing, banana boating, parasailing and kite-surfing abound. But there is also plenty of scope – and reason – for more leisurely snorkeling and diving too. In nearby San Jose del Cabo , there are must-have shopping opportunities aplenty for paintings, sculpture, jewellery and local handicrafts in the lanes radiating from the main square. Outside the city, culture quickly gives way to the uniquely beautiful Baja desert landscape with its arroyos (creeks), cardón cacti, boojum trees, rare crested caracara birds and burrowing owls. (It may be Mexico but we can’t help thinking Hotel California.)

Puerto Quetzal - Guatemala
On the Pacific Coast of one of the worlds newest and most exciting eco-tourism and cruise destinations - Guatemala, the Central American cruise port Quetzal leads you into a country boasting sublime scenic drama and a colourful history going way back to Mayan times. Its interior is a lush panorama of coastal plains, lakes, mountains, volcanoes and valleys creating a habitat for 300 species of birds and no fewer than 600 types of orchid. This is interspersed with farmland and timeless villages while modern Mayan Indian communities still cluster around the beautiful Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan Highlands. The major ancient Mayan site is Tikal (nearer the Caribbean coast) while another must-see is La Antigua, once the Guatemalan capital until it was destroyed by earthquakes 300 years ago. The ruins of this Spanish colonial city set in the shadow of three volcanoes are now a World Heritage site.

Transit Panama Canal

Cartagena, Colombia
Charming, narrow streets host quaint colonial buildings, while the magnificent cathedral and palace dominate the city. The walled old town brimming with colonial history, brightly painted facades, charming balconies and delightful plazas awash with flowers.

St Lucia
St Lucia has a fascinating if bloody history with the French and British spending years fighting over it. One look at this luscious island will show you why. Cloaked in verdant rainforests, its skyline dominated by the dramatic twin peaks of Les Pitons and its gardens a riot of hibiscus and bougainvillea; St. Lucia is the epitome of a Caribbean paradise. Here you can watch parrots and hummingbirds skim through the trees, bask on beautiful beaches, visit charming fishing villages, view stunning volcanic scenery and glory in the Caribbean’s best botanical gardens. If it is your first visit, an island tour to the dramatic Soufriére volcano will show you the island’s full beauty. Boat trips to spot dolphin and whales are also available, as are biking, jeep and hiking tours of the rainforest. But do leave time to explore the shops of Castries, where you can pick up bread, wine and even ketchup made from bananas.

Watching the Atlantic surf crash down on the rugged east coast of this richly diverse island and, for a moment, you may feel you could be on the Cornish coast but the moment you hear the waves of gospel singing emanating from a tiny local church you realise you could not be anywhere else but Barbados. While, over on the sheltered west coast, the glorious beaches are pure Caribbean. And there are more beaches and a lot more bars, cafés, restaurants and clubs creating a vibrant 24/7 lifestyle on the south coast, too. In the capital and cruise port, Bridgetown, there are intriguing signs of its British colonial past while, across the island, you are really spoilt for choice. You can enjoy every watersport under the sun; stunning nature walks and bike rides; or maybe a trip to the uniquely magnificent Harrisons Cave underground complex of caverns, waterfalls, stalactites and stalagmites.

Ponta Delgada - Azores
A strong Portuguese influence pervades Ponta Delgada from the stylish colonial architecture to the food and wine served in its restaurants. But that should really come as no surprise as this is the main Portuguese Azores cruise port even if these remote Atlantic islands are 760 miles distant from their parent country. The capital of Sao Miguel, the largest of the nine mountaineous, thickly-forested Azores islands, Ponta Delgada is probably the most spectacularly beautiful, too. It certainly has the most dramatic attraction:Sete citadades.This is a 15 square mile extinct volcanic crater in which two separate lakes have formed - one deep blue, the other emerald green. They make a remarkable sight, not to mention a great photo-opportunity. There is also a chance to bathe in the volcanic streams and therapeutic sulphur springs where locals come to picnic, burying their stewpots and sweetcorn so that they are cooked by natural heat.

Southampton, UK
The United Kingdom's premier passenger ship port, Southampton was home to the great transatlantic liners of yesteryear.
