    Ports

    LISBON, PORTUGAL 

    The City of Seven Hills

    Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, its magnificent harbor made it a logical trading port as far back as the Phoenicians, as well as a departure point for 15th-century voyages sponsored by Prince Henry the Navigator, patron of Portuguese explorers.This city is rich in architecture, from Romanesque and Gothic to Post Modern, and crisscrossed by monument-studded grand boulevards. In addition to its own active cultural calendar, it is seeking a place on the world stage by hosting film festivals, art, fashion, design shows, book fairs, marathons, and rock concerts.

    SEVILLE, SPAIN

    Land of flamenco, fiestas, and tapas

    The adventure begins once the ship starts its journey upriver the Guadalquivir, through spectacular landscapes and wonderful views of the city, until reaching the port of Seville.

    The passionate nature of Sevillanos is evident in their devotion to bullfighting, flamenco, and fiesta. As Seville is credited with the invention of tapas, join in with the locals as they graze from bar to bar, making an entire meal out of the experience.

    The city also has a rich history evident in its old quarters and landmarks. The great cathedral is immense, lavishly ornamented with painting, sculpture, and copious quantities of gold. The Alcazar, the main palace, is exquisitely decorated in Moorish style, with themed gardens laid out in terraces. All in all, an abundance of riches for all those who come to call.

    GIBRALTAR, UNITED KINGDOM

    Fortress of the Mediterranean

    The towering Rock of Gibraltar is a sight to behold. Overlooking the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea from a height of 1,400 feet, it is a natural fortress in a strategic position to control all naval traffic between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

    Only three miles long and a mile wide, this peninsula attached to the Spanish mainland juts out into the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates continental Europe from North Africa, within a distance of only 14 miles.

    MALAGA, SPAIN

    Beautiful beaches & sunny skies

    Malaga is the lively capital of the Costa del Sol, famed for its beaches and mild climate, and gateway to Andalusia, with its Moorish architectural heritage. The city’s Alcazaba is a fine example, an 11th century citadel sitting in majestic splendor overlooking the African coast. It contains three magnificent palaces and graceful gardens with ornate fountains.

    In addition to their rich cultural heritage, Malagueños are also proud of their most famous citizens, such as Picasso, having a museum commemorating his birth here, and actor Antonio Banderas.

    IBIZA, SPAIN

    Legendary nightlife

    Mountainous Ibiza is known as Isla Blanca, the White Island, perhaps because of the white walls of the traditional houses and churches that make up the small villages, dotting its landscape. Its atmosphere is reminiscent of Greek islands, making it unique among the Balearic Isles, and its rustic beauty attracts artists, as well photo and film shoots.

    Once you’ve explored the sights of the island, including its fabulous and exclusive beach clubs, be sure to take a nap and rest up for the evening’s festivities, since Ibiza’s nightlife is legendary within the jet set and its atmosphere is something not to be missed.

    BARCELONA, SPAIN

    City of Gaudi

    Dynamic Barcelona is all about architecture, from the magnificent medieval buildings of the Gothic Quarter to the Modernist movement typified by the work of Antoni Gaudi. Though his materials were stone and metal, his forms were organic, awash in curves, swirls, and colors. His masterpiece is the amazing Church of the Sagrada Familia, colossal and as yet unfinished, though construction began in 1882.A contemporary contribution to the scene is Ricardo Bofill’s post-modernist National Theater of Catalonia, an imaginative combination of classical and modern design, with a greenhouse-like lobby.

    Ports

    Barcelona, Spain

    Barcelona is a cosmopolitan masterpiece. With a history rich in art and architecture, medieval, Gothic, and modern influences can be seen all over the city. You can marvel at Gaudi's Sagrada Familia or stroll up the shady, tree-lined Las Ramblas boulevard and discover some of the city's best shopping and bustling cafes.

     

    Malaga, Spain

    Málaga is like a beautiful work of art. And it’s no wonder considering, considering it was the birthplace of Picasso. You’ll find a museum commemorating his birth here, which is a must-visit destination for art fans. Elsewhere, be sure to spend some time in the city’s Alcazaba, a 11th-century citadel that is home to three palaces, beautiful gardens, and opulent fountains.

     

    Cadiz, Spain

    In Cadiz, cobblestone streets lead into café-filled squares, where you can sip while appreciating the Moorish architecture. Or visit Seville, where the locals are devoted to bullfighting, flamenco, and fiesta. The city also has a rich history evident in its old quarters and landmarks – an immense lavishly ornamented cathedral, and the Alcazar palace, exquisitely decorated in Moorish style.

     

    Casablanca, Morocco

    Casablanca is a port city and commercial hub in western Morocco, fronting the Atlantic Ocean. The city's French colonial legacy is seen in its downtown Mauresque architecture, a blend of Moorish style and European art deco. Standing partly over the water, the enormous Hassan II Mosque, completed in 1993, has a 210m minaret topped with lasers directed toward Mecca.

     

    Valencia, Spain

    Marvel at the stunning mix of innovative architecture and gothic beauty when you visit Valencia. This Spanish city is home to many avant-garde buildings, including the breathtaking City of Arts and Sciences cultural complex. Elsewhere, palaces and mansions constructed in the 15th century dot the cityscape, while The Silk Exchange resembles a medieval fortress housing many mysterious carvings.

    Ports

    ATHENS (PIRAEUS), GREECE

    Cradle of European Civilization 
    You could spend a lifetime in Europe’s oldest city and still not see everything it has to offer. Settled over 3,500 years ago, Athens is like a mythological crossroads of the past and present, where modern buildings share the skyline with spectacular ruins like the Parthenon.

    For an archaeological walk, make your way to Vasilissis Amalias Street, winding through the heart of the ancient city. The route leads to landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, Arch of Hadrian, and of course, the Acropolis.

    After all that, you’re probably going to work up quite an appetite. So, head to the Central Market for fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese like feta, graviera, or aged kefalotyri. Snacking is not a bad idea since Athenians usually don’t head out for dinner until at least 9 p.m.

    And if you need a little extra pick-me-up to make it that late, have a frappe, a Greek creation of strong iced coffee with milk and sugar. Additionally, neighborhoods like Pangrati, Exarhia, and Petralona feature fantastic tavernas where you can rub elbows with the locals while dining on the sidewalk well into the wee hours of the night.

    SANTORINI, GREECE

    Gem of The Aegean
    It’s been said the sunset from Oia, on the island of Santorini, is the most beautiful in the world, but you don’t have to wait until dusk to see your share of postcard-worthy views, Santorini is stunning any time of day.

    The capital, Fira, clings to the rim of the caldera 900 feet above the sea. Take the cable car or, if you’re looking for a more authentic experience, giddy up on a donkey to climb the 588 zigzagging steps to the top. The white cobblestone streets bustle with shops, tavernas, and cafes, perfect for sampling the tomatoes and white eggplant for which Santorini is renowned.

    If you’re feeling ambitious, hike to nearby Oia, a quintessential Greek village. Plan your day accordingly to enjoy a glass of Vinsanto (a sweet, strong dessert wine) as the sun sinks into the sea.

    To end the day, drive by black, white, and red volcanic beaches and head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompei, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied (and explosive) past

    RHODES GREECE

    Island of the Knights
    The island of Rhodes offers a stunning combination of sea, sand, and sights. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, and over 10,000 years of history, you’ll find plenty to tickle your fancy here.First on your agenda should be the picture-perfect city of Rhodes, one of the best-preserved medieval cities in all of Europe. With its combination of sandstone buildings, the cobblestoned Street of the Knights, and charming turreted buildings, it’s no wonder this is such a popular UNESCO World Heritage Site.And speaking of wonders, next up on your magical history tour is the Rhodes waterfront, where once stood the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Although the nearly 100-feet statue of Helios, the Greek god of sun, was destroyed in an earthquake around 250 BC, you can imagine what it must have been like to arrive in this harbor thousands of years ago.Just a short ride away, the medieval town of Lindos features ruins like the 4th-century BC temple of Athena Lindia, the castle of the Knights of Saint John, and stacked-like giant sugar cubes on a steep hill. Hitch a donkey ride to the acropolis for spectacular views of the town and Saint Paul’s Bay.
     

    EPHESUS (KUSADASI), TURKEY

    An age-old civilization
    We could chat about the resort town of Kusadasi and its beaches and restaurants, or nearby places like Dilek Peninsula National Park, but let’s talk Ephesus, once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, eclipsed only by Rome.There’s the Library of Celsus –still magnificent almost 2,000 years later–, the Odeon, and the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre, where St. Paul used to preach. Stretching from this jaw-dropping amphitheater to the harbor is the marble-made Arcadian Street. Also, stroll past the marketplaces, colonnades, and the fields of wild fennel, and into bath complexes that once offered piped-in hot water and sauna.Surrounding Ephesus, the sites are equally spellbinding. Explore the ruins of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; the Basilica of St. John, which stands over the believed burial site of John the Apostle; and the House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days.

    PATMOS, GREECE

    Holy Island 
    The tiny island of Patmos is a place of deep importance for Christianity. It’s where the last book of the New Testament was allegedly written, and where an air of mystery still hangs over the island, like the misty fog that seems to be ever-present just off the shore.Visit the ominous-sounding Cave of the Apocalypse, where John the Apostle stayed after Domitian exiled him in AD 95. Look up at the ceiling to see the crack where Jesus appeared to him and inspired him to write the Book of Revelations.Fast-forward to 993 years in history by visiting the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian, found by Saint Christodoulou in honor of Saint John. The massive monastery still stands guard over Patmos town to this day.Then, make the pilgrimage back to Skala (where all roads on the island seemingly lead). Find a lush Tamarisk tree to lounge beneath and indulge on a picnic of local delicacies like fresh octopus and savory cheese pie. Be on the lookout for celebrities, too, since folks like Richard Gere and Bono have all been spotted here, perhaps in search of their own divine inspiration.

    MYKONOS, GREECE (OVERNIGHT)

    Picture-postcard destination
    Mykonos looks like a scene straight from a postcard: whiter-than-white houses with brilliant blue shutters, vibrant bougainvillea, and a beautiful blue harbor drenched in warm sunlight. Iconic 16th century Venetian windmills stand in a row, their paddles spinning in the wind, and the district of Little Venice, which rises like a brightly colored wall coming out of the sea.But beneath the idyllic scenery, Mykonos is vibrant and cosmopolitan, with a penchant for all-night parties and hedonistic good times. By day, stroll along the maze-like cobblestone streets, exploring artists’ shops and enjoying a couple of glasses of ouzo.As soon as the sun goes down, it’s time to let loose. Known as “the Ibiza of Greece”, Mykonos has a serious party scene that’s not for the faint of heart.Mykonos is also a perfect jumping off point for Delos. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the uninhabited island is said to be the birthplace of the twin deities Apollo (god of the sun) and Artemis (goddess off the moon). So, it’s little wonder so many flock to worship the sun by day, and dance beneath the moon at night.

    Ports

     

    Oranjestad, Aruba

    Oranjestad, ArubaLocated on the picturesque southern coast, Oranjestad is the historic Dutch capital of Aruba, where the traditional, tall, multicolored houses combine carved wooden doors and typical Dutch tiles with open-air patios. The charm of the city complements the beauty of this popular Caribbean island where the Dutch and indigenous cultures have merged to give Aruba its unique atmosphere. Today's visitors can enjoy this culture along with beautiful beaches, excellent snorkeling and exciting nightlife.

     

    Willemstad, Curacao

    Willemstad Harbor, CuracaoCuracao is the largest of the six islands that comprise the Netherlands Antilles. It gained autonomy from the Netherlands in 1954, but the Dutch influence is still very visible in Willemstad's architecture and culture. With the growth of the oil industry in Curacao in the early 20th century, workers and their families came to the island from more than 50 countries, providing a varied and vibrant population. Everyone should experience the sights, sounds and energy of this unique destination. You'll feel as if you are in Amsterdam, not on a Caribbean island.
