About Limassol in Destinations

image alt

History mixed with a little hedonism is the holiday mixture which makes Cyprus so popular and, sat about halfway along the south coast, Limassol is the ideal base for cruise visitors to enjoy what the country has to offer. Across the island, there is plenty of rugged coastline and mountain scenery to explore and enjoy along with a variety of archaeological sites. Limassol is a working town as well as a holiday resort but it has been attractively landscaped and its centre is easily walkable....

About Porto Santo in Destinations

image alt

Not many islands can lay claim to inspiring the discovery of new continents, but little Porto Santo can! Once home to Christopher Columbus, who married the governor of the island's daughter, it was a few pieces of handcrafted cane, washed up along the island's coastline, which are said to have sparked Columbus's curiosity. Displaying workmanship unlike any he had seen before, he left the island for his well-documented adventures. With far less rainfall than its leafy neighbour of Madeira,...

There are spectacular sandy beaches, mansions, vineyards and marinas, alongside such historical sites as Boston, the birthplace of the American Revolution.

About Venice in Destinations

image alt

This World Heritage city is just about the perfect cruise call because everything you want to see is so easily accessible whether the ship docks just down from St Marks Square or further up the Grand Canal at the main Venice cruise terminal complex.

A gondola ride is really for...

About College Fjord in Destinations

image alt

A glacier calving is an incredible event. When thousands of tons of ice peel away from a glacier a sharp boom is created that sounds like a massive detonation of high explosives. This in turn, is followed by a huge roar as newly born icebergs plunge into the sea. And an afternoon cruise in Prince William Sound's spectacular College Fjord offers the possibility of witnessing this amazing event. This narrow 20-mile long fjord in the northern region of the Sound was created by glacial activity...

Start your exploration in its old town - Casco Viejo - a treasury of French, Spanish and American colonial houses. The French Plaza is particularly atmospheric and you can enjoy panoramic...

About Dardanelles in Destinations

image alt

Known in ancient times as the Hellespont, The Dardanelles is a beautiful stretch of water connecting the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara. A cruise through this narrow inlet affords spectacular views of two Turkish coasts on different continents where Europe and Asia Minor meet each other face to face.

Rarotonga Port Overview in Destinations

About Arica in Destinations

image alt

Never mind Chile, it's positively chilled out in Arica, where the sun shines all year round. With its miles of golden sand dunes at the foot of El Morro hill, there's a laid back surfer dude vibe in the City of Eternal Spring. Grab a board (or fun-sized boogie board) and head north for calmer waters, while more experienced surfers can ride the waves south of El Morro. Speaking of the famous rock which dominates the beach, allow 10 minutes to reach the summit to discover more about this...

St Nazaire in Destinations

image alt

St Nazaire is renowned for its ship building (Cunard's Queen Mary II was built here in 2003) after the port became the departure and arrival point for France's first transatlantic crossings in 1862. To compare the facilities of Oceana with those of early cruise ships, visit Escal'Atlantic (housed in the impenetrable German submarine base) and you'll step off one ship straight onto another - it's a life-size reconstruction of an early ocean liner. You can also explore L'Espadon, a real submarine...

On June 21, 1895 the canal was officially opened by Kaiser Wilhelm II who laid the final stone.

About Hellesylt in Destinations

image alt

Nearby Geiranger might be more widely known, but the UNESCO World Heritage listed village of Hellesylt seems determined not to be overshadowed by its more famous neighbour.
