The Maiden Voyage.
Other iconic experiences include Alfama (the oldest part of the city) and a ride on a vintage tram – route 28 is highly recommended. Of course, no Lisbon call would be complete without a traditional custard tart. While you’ll find these all over the city, Pastéis de Belém’s are rumored to be the best.
The Canary Islands.
If it’s volcanic scenery you’re seeking, Lanzarote’s park at Timanfaya will not disappoint, while sunbathers will adore Fuerteventura’s white sands. The 16th century, San Cristóbal de La Laguna is highly recommended in Tenerife, while Gran Canaria’s capital, Las Palmas, offers sheltered waters, perfect for swimming.
Delight in the colorful wharf buildings that line the banks in Stavanger. Stroll pretty streets lined with art nouveau buildings in Alesund, and retrace the footsteps of Vikings as you sail mighty fjords that have remained unchanged for centuries.
The atmospheric Las Ramblas and Gaudi’s architecture are just the pinnacle of Barcelona’s appeal. Cadiz, a compact gem brimming with history, is also the gateway to Seville’s equestrian displays and vast cathedral. Discover Portugal’s atmospheric capital Lisbon, fall for the gothic charms of Palma de Mallorca, and in Croatia, explore the ancient streets of Sibenik, thought to date back to the 11th century.
Stroll through the quaint streets of Kirkwall, and from Greenock go to Glasgow to immerse in the cultural scene, which includes the Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland. In Northern Ireland, visit Titanic Belfast to learn about the infamous ship's conception, and in Liverpool, explore the history of Britain’s best-known band: The Beatles.
Other ports include Helsinki, where modern city architecture and nature trails perfectly combine, and Skagen, the picturesque northernmost town of Denmark’s Jutland peninsula. From here, look out for wildlife across the unique coastline, where the Baltic and North Seas meet.
Wander the bustling town of Akureyri, home to Iceland’s largest fishing company, perfectly framed by snow-capped mountains. Meanwhile, in Isafjordur, find yourself among bright green rolling meadows with no roads for miles, giving the illusion of stepping into unchartered territory.
