Highlights of this cruise:

Ft Lauderdale
Port Everglades, the port for Fort Lauderdale is the world's premier cruise port with more home-ported ships and cruise lines than any other port in the world.

The City of Fort Lauderdale is famous for its boats and more than seven miles of sparkling beaches. The City’s award-winning wavewall and signature beachfront promenade highlight Fort Lauderdale’s world famous coastline. It features array of shops, restaurants, sidewalk cafes and entertainment venues.

Beachgoers can participate in a wide range of activities from boating, wind surfing, jet skiing and volleyball to snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing and rollerblading.

Oranjestad
Aruba is the smallest island in the Leeward group of the Dutch Caribbean islands. Its Dutch heritage can be seen in its pastel-colored gabled buildings and a windmill brought piece by piece from Holland found in the capital of Oranjestad. Oranjestad has a daily market in the Paardenbaai (Schooner Harbour), and offers numerous shops, boutiques and malls that are all within easy walking distance of the ship. In the main street you will find many stores, shops, boutiques, restaurants and street vendors to investigate.

Oranjestad is a popular tourist destination boasting sunshine, silky sand, aquamarine waters, cooling trade winds, natural scenic wonders, friendly and courteous service, modern and efficient amenities, golf and tennis clubs, duty-free shopping, an array of nightly entertainment and some of the best cuisine in the Caribbean. Most of its 29 hotels sit side by side down one major strip along the southwestern shore, with restaurants, exotic boutiques, fiery floor shows, and glitzy casinos right on their premises.

Aruba’s principal attraction is its beaches and the Natural Bridge, an arch carved from coral cliffs by the surf. The bridge is the biggest and highest in the Caribbean and is Aruba’s most famous natural wonder. On the northern tip of the island is the California Lighthouse, and off this coast is the wreck of a German freighter from World War II, which is now very popular spot for scuba divers. The Chapel of Alto Vista at Alto Vista is another popular site on the north coast. It is bright yellow and hard to miss.

Huatulco
Isolated and pristine, Huatulco is often touted as "Mexico’s Best Kept Secret". Bordered by a 22-mile collage of glittering bays, inlets and coves, Huatulco remains virtually untouched. Its overwhelming scenery is rich with a brocade of bougainvillea, almond, and laurel trees, and surrounded by the Sierra Madre Mountains.

To stimulate the economy, the Mexican government began to search for an area to establish a "planned community", with strict building codes and close attention to ecological awareness, for which Huatulco was ideal. In the early 1980’s construction was underway. By 1987 Huatulco finally began to accept vacationers into its few hotels. In 1992 it began to flourish as Mexico’s newest vacation and eco-destination.

Rest and relaxation are the key attractions. Discover quiet coves for an afternoon picnic or a relaxing nap. For a snorkelling adventure, Tangolunda Bay is favoured by the locals because of its colourful marine life and picturesque coral reefs. Take a day trip to the ancient ruins of Oaxaca for a taste of history or sightsee in quaint Puerto Escondido.

The luxury resorts provide an abundance of nightlife and restaurants, while a day trip to town is often reserved for shopping excursions. Distinctive handicrafts like leather goods, textiles, and pottery are available at local markets.

San Diego
San Diego is one of California's most important cities and San Diego is known for its fantastic beaches, natural harbor areas and historic buildings. Full of outdoor activities and tourist attractions, including San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld and Balboa Park. San Diego's diverse neighborhoods include plenty of shopping, dining, tourism and entertainment opportunities.

The city of San Diego has thrived since the opening of the Santa Fe Railroad in the late 19th century and much of the city is centered around San Diego's compact downtown district, the Gaslamp Quarter and the charming Old Town area.

San Diego features many superb tourist attractions, including Belmont Park - a major amusement park dating back to 1925, Birch Aquarium, San Diego Zoo founded in 1916 and home to more than 4,000 animals, including many endangered species; SeaWorld and Knott's Soak City USA a popular water park.
