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.

Bridgetown
Barbados is an ideal Caribbean destination, whether you want to bake in the sun or spend your time discovering island life and culture.

The beaches along the West and South coasts are lovely. Because they're open to the public, though, they lack the privacy some visitors may seek. Elsewhere on the island, linked by almost 900 miles of good roads, are small villages, historic plantation houses, stalactite-studded caves, a wildlife preserve, and the Andromeda Gardens, one of the most attractive small tropical gardens in the world. Culturally, Barbados has retained a very British atmosphere: Afternoon tea is a ritual, cricket is the national passion, and a few luxury hotels request a jacket and tie at dinner.

But Barbados is true blue Caribbean as well, with classic sand beaches, and wild monkeys in the jungle.

Willemstad
Curaçao, the largest island in the Netherlands Antilles, is part of the Dutch Leeward Islands, also known as the Dutch Antilles. Willemstad, the capital, is noted for its brightly colored, Dutch-style houses and Cunucu dwellings (based on African-style mud and wattle huts). It is one of the best shopping destinations in the Caribbean. The harbor has a floating market where colorful barges full of agricultural produce are moored. Nearby is the new market building, the design of which is very unusual.

Popular places to visit in Willemstad include Fort Amsterdam, now the seat of government of the Netherlands Antilles, the Queen Emma Pontoon bridge and the Queen Juliana Bridge. The latter spans the harbor at a height of 490m (1600ft). The architecture of the Scharloo area, reached by crossing the Wilhelmina Drawbridge, is fascinating, dating from as early as 1700. The Mikvé Israel Synagogue is the oldest in the Americas and, like the Jewish Beth Heim Cemetery, is worth a visit. Its courtyard museum has a fine collection of historical artifacts.

Grand Cayman
The Cayman Islands-a British Crown colony that includes Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman is one of the Caribbean's hottest destinations, world-renowned for two offshore activities: banking and scuba diving.

The manicured capital of George Town, which bulges with some 554 offshore banks, offers great diving, shopping, dining, windsurfing, watersports, golf, dancing, and more. The other two "sisters" are far more laid-back, with Little Cayman catering almost exclusively to the scuba divers that flock there for translucent waters and a colourful variety of protected marine life.

Grand Cayman is party island. As the largest island, it attracts 99 percent of the tourists, most of whom flock to hotel-stocked Seven Mile Beach. Georgetown is an eclectic place that has a remarkable mix of architecture, from traditional British, to modern styling. Their banking and investment laws makes the Caymans the 5th largest financial center in the world.
