THE FOODIE

In Venice, savour the majestic beauty of this amazing city as you glide along its canals and under its bridges, with opulent palazzi and elegant churches lining the route.

In Messina, visit beautiful Taormina and marvel at its famous Greek theater and the stunning view of Mount Etna.

Next, head to Pompeii and Naples – grab a slice of pizza in the town that made it famous and spend a day exploring the ruins of ancient Pompeii or Herculaneum with their stunning temples, frescoes and mosaics. 


And in Rome, do as the locals do – stroll the streets with gelato in hand, dine al fresco at a terraced cafe, and then revel in its magnificent sites: the ancient Roman Forum and Coliseum, St Peter's Basilica with Michelangelo's Pietà, and the breathtaking frescoes of the Sistine Chapel. Or skip the queues and enjoy a drive through the lush farmlands of the Roman countryside to lovely medieval Castelgandolfo.

THE HISTORY BUFF

Sail the haunting grounds of the feared Viking warriors. Start in Copenhagen, and visit the quaint old harbour at Nyhavn and beautiful Rosenborg Castle and, of course, the famed statue of the Little Mermaid. Or venture into the countryside and enjoy its panoramic vistas, fairy tale castles and the village of Fredensborg.


Next sail to Helsinki and take a harbour cruise past forests, beaches, villas and a ruined Suomenlinna fortress that spans five islands, or visit historic Porvoo, Finland's second oldest town.


Did you know Russia got its name from the Vikings? At your next stop in St. Petersburg, visit the Peter and Paul Fortress, the fabulous onion-domed cathedrals and its palaces: from the immense Winter Palace (now the Hermitage Museum), to the fabled Catherine's Palace and Peterhof outside the city. Enjoy an evening of ballet or traditional Russian song and dance or take a day trip to Moscow.


Next in Tallinn, step back in time as you walk through this beautifully-preserved medieval town – its upper and lower levels, the guild houses, the churches and squares, the famous apothecary shop and town hall. 

While in Stockholm, visit the charming Old Town, medieval Gamla Stan, the elegant royal palace, the wonderful parks and the impressive Vasa, a magnificently restored 17th century warship that sank in the harbour on her maiden voyage! Whoops.


On to Germany! In Berlin, enjoy a scenic drive to the capital and savour landmarks: the Brandenburg Gate and the glorious Charlottenburg Palace. Take a moment to remember families who were separated during the Cold War when visiting Checkpoint Charlie and the Berlin Wall


Amsterdam is the final stop and it’s a historic delight!

In Miami, there really is something for everyone. People-watchers will enjoy South Beach's Ocean Drive, while architecture buffs will love the Art Deco District. If you're looking for something a bit different, there are world-class museums and shopping venues too. 


Then travel onwards to Key West and visit its butterfly and nature conservatory, which houses an impressive collection of flowering plants, cascading waterfalls and 50 different species of butterflies from around the world!


Sail on to Cuba, stopping in Havana. The door to Cuba’s soul, Havana captivates with its larger-than-life culture, sultry rhythms and weathered beauty. Take a relaxing stroll along the evocative Malecón, the quintessentially Cuban thoroughfare and get lost among the Baroque facades and colonial cobblestone alleys of Old Havana. Tour one of Havana’s venerable old cigar factories or sip a daiquiri at Ernest Hemingway’s favourite haunt, El Floridita, while listening to jazz. 


End in Santiago de Cuba, a tropical and energetic cultural epicentre.

Kick things off in the party city of Miami before heading to Oranjestad – in the capital of Aruba you’ll encounter colourful Dutch colonial architecture, duty-free bargains and gorgeous beaches. 


Next, on the lush island of Castries, visit the historic La Toc Battery, see banana plantations, and watch silk screening at Bagshaws. Then take a bike ride through the rain forest to a lovely waterfall, kayak in the surreal Caribbean, or snorkel / dive to spectacular reefs.


Sail on to San Juan, where you’ll experience Old World charm. In the Old Town, stroll its a walled enclave of hundreds of restored 16th and 17th century Spanish colonial buildings and notice the blue-tinged cobblestone streets – they were once ballast on Spanish ships. 

There is no better place to end the festivities than the Big Apple, New York! It’s a city that reportedly never sleeps, after all. But where to begin? The hallowed Ground Zero memorial or stunning Central Park? The Guggenheim or the American Museum of Natural History? Should you take in a Broadway show or simply enjoy the non-stop show of people that parade through the streets? The possibilities are endless in the five boroughs of New York City, so get out and enjoy.

THE NOSTALGIC MUSICIAN

Spend a couple of fun days in Miami and Havana before heading on to Cienfuegos! Situated in a beautiful bay in the heart of Cuba’s fertile agricultural region on the southern coast, Cienfuegos will quietly charm you with its French spirit, tranquil seaside setting and neoclassical architecture. 


Known as La Perla del Sur (the Pearl of the South), Cienfuegos was originally founded by French settlers and its city centre is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Next, step back in time at Teatro Terry with a performance by local artists or discover nearby Trinidad, a remarkably well-preserved colonial town recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site and anchored by its impressive Plaza Mayor, an open-air museum of Spanish colonial architecture.

Then sail on to Santiago de Cuba. Discover the city’s fascinating history at Castillo de San Pedro de la Roca and the Cementerio Santa Ifigenia, where Cuban hero José Martí and Emilio Bacardí Moreau of the famed rum dynasty are both buried. Countless musicians have emerged from Santiago de Cuba and many say the heart of this thriving city lives in its music scene. It’s the perfect place to end your voyage with Oceania!

THE OUTDOORSY ADVENTURER

This is quite the itinerary! Start off in San Francisco – home to more iconic sights than you likely have time to visit: the Golden Gate Bridge, the notorious Alcatraz island prison, clanging streetcars, rolling fog and impossibly steep hills.


Next up is Astoria – the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies. Established in 1811 on the Columbia River, the city is known as the "Little San Francisco of the Pacific Northwest" because of its colourful Victorian homes clinging to its steep hills. 

Venture on to Sitka, a multicultural destination with some of Alaska’s oldest native culture collections (at the Sheldon Jackson Museum). Two dozen of its attractions are on the National Register of Historic Places, including Castle Hill and Building 29, a structure built by the Russians in 1835.

In Alaska’s state capital, Juneau will reveal its surprising small-town charm. It can only be reached by sea or air due to the surrounding wilderness! Visit Mendenhall Glacier for outdoor adventure.


Named on of the most beautiful cities on earth, Vancouver offers every imaginable big-city attraction. Explore the Museum of Anthropology and the Vancouver Art Museum for culture, the historic cobblestone streets of the Gastown district, which borders vibrant Chinatown, or enjoy a break from the bustle in Stanley Park, one of North America's largest urban parks.
