Highlights of this cruise:

Southampton
The ideal start or ending point for a memorable voyage, the United Kingdom's premier passenger port and sprawling South Coast city, Southampton, was home to iconic transatlantic liners of yesteryear.

Its great location means you’ve access to a range of historic sites, charming villages and national landmarks, and the great metropolis of London with all to see and do there.

Ft Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale is world famous for its magnificent beaches, watersports, retail, and its canals and marina. Relaxing on the golden sands is a popular pastime, but there’s no shortage of alternatives.

Take a boat tour of Las Olas Boulevard, the historical districts, and the mansions and yachts of Millionaires Row. Or visit Stranahan House, a preserved 1900s home furnished with antiques of the era.

Puerto Limon
Setting foot on the ‘Rich Coast' at Puerto Limon, you will instantly understand how its name came about. Stroll the city's palm-lined promenade and verdant Parque Vargas for a sense of its splendour.

Beyond the opulence and beauty of the port lies another kind of wealth: a dense rainforest awash with life, where an aerial tram ride at Braulio Carillo National Park carries you through the canopy.

Cabo San Lucas
Whilst growing as a fashionable tourist destination, the Mexican resort of Cabo San Lucas still maintains its sparse and uncrowded atmosphere, and boasts a warm hospitality which matches the sunshine.

Nestled on the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, Cabo is famous for its casual atmosphere, exciting nightlife, and stunning beaches and scenery.

Honolulu
Aloha Honolulu. Synonymous with lilting music and magnificent beaches, like world-famous Waikiki, it’s also awash with shops, restaurants, and a multitude of historic, cultural and scenic attractions.

The wider island, Oahu, is a Pacific crossroads and a tapestry of cultural diversity, from Polynesian sensuality and Oriental mystique to American pragmatism.

Suva
It may be Fiji’s capital with 85,000 inhabitants, but Suva’s laid-back atmosphere, spectacular scenery and village-style hospitality is something of an antidote to the typical perception of city life.

What’s more, it may be on Fiji’s famed coast, but it’s not a beach resort. Suva is lined by mangroves, giving it a lush backdrop. The closest beach is 25 miles away, but there’s plenty to enjoy here.

Auckland
In a nation where stunning scenery is a given, this water wonderland ‘City of Sails’ sparkles in the sunlight, surrounded by more than 48 extinct volcanoes in wild mountainous scenery. A natural joy.

An undulating succession of bays and inlets stretches along the seemingly endless shores of spacious Auckland, with its downtown area featuring expansive farm-like parks.

Sydney
The stunning harbour city, Sydney, is Australia’s oldest and largest urban centre. Its fascinating modern history began in the year 1788 with the arrival of the ‘First Fleet’ of 760 British convicts.

Gold mining and sheep breeding propelled Sydney’s development, and today it’s the largest port in the entire South Pacific. Mark Twain called it “the wonder of the world”.

The hundreds of luxury hotel rooms along the corridor to the north of Cabo San Lucas have transformed the very essence of this formerly rustic and rowdy outpost. Although it still retains a boisterous nightlife that belies the pampered services that surround it, Cabo San Lucas is no longer the simple town Steinbeck wrote about and enjoyed. Once legendary for the big-game fish that lurk beneath the deep blue sea, Cabo San Lucas now draws more people for its nearby fairways and greens - and the world-class golf being played on them. Today, it caters to a traveller getting away for a long weekend or indulgent stay of sport and relaxation. Cabo San Lucas has become Mexico's most elite resort destination. Travellers here enjoy a growing roster of adventure-oriented activities, and playtime doesn't end when the sun goes down. The nightlife here is as hot as the desert in July, and oddly casual, having grown up away from the higher-end hotels. It's still the raucous, playful party scene that helped put Cabo on the map. A collection of popular restaurants and bars, spread along Cabo's main street, stay open and active until the morning's first fishing charters head out to sea. Despite the growth in diversions, Cabo remains more or less a "one stoplight" town, with most everything located along the main strip, within easy walking distance.

Day is lost The International Date Line is an imaginary line on the earth's surface, at approximately the 180th meridian (LONGITUDE). Traveling east across the line, takes the traveler back one day; traveling west, takes the traveler forward one day. Without the International Date Line travelers going westward would discover that when they returned home, one day more than they thought had passed, even though they had kept careful tally of the days. This first happened to Magellan's crew after the first circumnavigation of the globe!
