Lisbon, Portugal’s capital city, is home to the magnificent Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Tower, 25th April Bridge and Monument of the Discoveries. Wander through the maze of narrow streets in the delightful Alfama district and ride one of the famous old trams.
Funchal, Madeira (Portugal)
Set in a magnificent natural amphitheatre overlooking a wide bay, Funchal is the delightful capital of the beautiful and dramatic island of Madeira. The harbour is right in the centre of town and as you approach the sight of whitewashed buildings with red tiled roofs tumbling down the verdant mountain is spectacular. A modern cable car soars above the bustling city to Monte, which is the start of Madeira’s famous wicker toboggan ride. Wicker baskets, embroidery and the famous Madeira wine are popular souvenirs from the striking island often described as the ‘floating garden of the Atlantic’.
Las Palmas, Gran Canaria (Spain)

Mindelo, São Vicente (Cape Verde)
Complete with cobblestone streets, candy-coloured colonial buildings and yachts bobbing in the peaceful harbour, Mindelo, which has long been the country's cultural centre, is Cape Verde's answer to the Riviera.
Santarém is located at the joining of the Tapajos and Amazon rivers. Formally a village of the indigenous Tapajos Indians, it was later colonised by the Portuguese and today is the second largest town in the state of Pará. Just outside the city, the turquoise waters of the Tapajos meet the ochre-coloured waters of the Amazon, which flow alongside each other without mixing. In this area are flooded forests, swamps and savannas.
Manaus, Amazonas (Brazil)
Founded by the Portuguese, Manaus became one of the world's wealthiest cities at the height of the rubber boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Today its former glory lingers in some of the grand buildings dotted about the city, including the ornate Teatro Amazonas opera house. Nearby is the famed 'Wedding of the Waters', where the dark Rio Negro and light Rio Solimoes join to form the Amazon, at first flowing side-by-side without merging.
Salvador de Bahia (Brazil)
Salvador is on a peninsula which shields the large Baía de Todos os Santos – All Saints Bay – from the Atlantic Ocean. It is the largest city on the northeast coast of Brazil and is considered one of the birthplaces of Brazilian culture.
The city is divided by a 100 metre cliff that runs along the entire bay, Cidade Alta it up on the cliff and Cidade Baixa is down by the bay.
Brazil’s former capital, Salvador was founded in 1549 and was the hub of the slave trade. It is now known as Brazil’s centre of happiness, due to the party atmosphere, and where the largest carnival in the world is staged.

Alberto de Agostini National Park (Chile)
Discover the stunning beauty of Chile as you cruise along the coastline of the Alberto de Agostini National Park indented with fjords and through the remote fjord-like Patagonian Channels witnessing scenic grandeur rarely seen elsewhere.
Ushuaia claims the title of the world's southernmost town and captures the flavour of a 'frontier' outpost.

Cape Horn (Chile)
This is your chance to view the famous Cape Horn from the comfort of the ship where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Pacific Ocean.

Sailing around the Horn is widely regarded as one of the major challenges in yachting and speed records for round-the-world sailing are recognised for following this route.
Puerto Montt (Chile)
Gateway to the fjords, Puerto Montt is set amid forested hills, fjords, lakes and snow-capped Andes peaks. It is also a stepping stone to the glorious Chilean Lake District. The Angelo market at the west end of Puerto Montt is a great place to pick up handcraft items, like traditional ponchos, and marvel at the fresh fish market.
Valparaíso for Santiago (Chile)
East of the port town of Valparaiso is Santiago, the heart of Chile and home to almost 40% of the population. Home to grand 18th and l9th century buildings, sleek skyscrapers and Spanish colonial cathedrals, it’s a perfect city to stroll around and absorb yourself in the Chilean culture with the majestic Andean Mountains as the scenic backdrop.

Callao for Lima (Peru)
Callao is your gateway to the Peruvian capital of Lima. with the option of a tour to Cuzco and the lost Inca City of Machu Picchu.

Search out its hidden past dating back to the Incan Empire and visit the Plaza de Armas lined with arcades of shops.
Founded by the conquistadors in 1537, historic Guayaquil is your gateway to the Ecuadorian capital of Quito hidden high up in the Andes. Definitely a contender for the most beautiful city in South America, Quito offers dramatic views of the snow-topped Antisana, Cotopaxi and Cayambe volcanoes.
Puerto Limón (Costa Rica)
The port city of Puerto Limon is the gateway to the adventurous attractions of Costa Rica which boasts one of the world’s greatest collections of biologically diverse habitats. More like a tropical Eden, this Central American nation serves up dramatic waterfalls, lush rainforest and a landscape scattered with volcanoes, along with an exotic plethora of wildlife.
This remote isle, the largest of the Bay Islands, sits 30 miles north of Honduras and is famed for its colourful history as a former pirate haunt. Today, tourists are the biggest visitors to Roatan, drawn by beautiful sand beaches and pristine coral reefs that make it a magnet for divers and snorkellers.
Belize City (Belize)
For such a small country, Belize punches above its weight when it comes to attractions and Belize City is the key jumping off point from which to explore. The Museum of Belize was Her Majesty’s Prison when the area was a British colony. St. John’s Cathedral, the oldest Anglican Cathedral in Central America is built solely with bricks which were once ship’s ballast, and the newest Belize landmark, the Belize Sign, is a perfect photo opportunity on the Seashore Promenade.
Cozumel for Chichen Itza (Mexico)
This island is a popular cruise stop and it’s easy to see why. Not only is Cozumel a good location from which to explore some of Mexico’s most notable Mayan treasures, it also boasts some of the region’s best snorkelling and diving among spectacular coral reefs. Shoppers can pick up bargains and Mexican handicrafts in the duty-free shops, while visitors wanting a more peaceful alternative can escape to the island’s quieter more natural side.
Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel, Azores (Portugal)
Since 1546 Ponta Delgada has been capital of São Miguel, which is the largest of the nine islands in the Azores archipelago. In the last twenty-five years the cosmopolitan little town has seen rapid expansion bringing the archipelago its first university, shopping mall and dual carriageway. Yet, it still has a small town charm with squares paved with black and white tiles, beautiful churches, and public buildings with white-painted facades and dark volcanic stone trim. Volcanic activity has produced spectacular scenery on the islands and this extraordinary natural beauty is a highlight of optional excursions.
