Highlights of this cruise:

Bridgetown, Barbados
Barbados has a balmy, tropical climate, making this very British Caribbean island a favourite with well-heeled tourists. Admire the impressive stalactites and stalagmites in Harrison’s Cave; sail the gorgeous azure waters in search of sea turtles; or simply relax on one of the many sandy beaches, soaking up the laid-back atmosphere.

Panama Canal
A journey through the incredible Panama Canal provides one of cruising's most unforgettable experiences. One of the world's greatest engineering feats, the canal stretches over 48 miles and takes 8 hours to travel, giving you plenty of time to admire this remarkable man-made wonder and the beautiful natural surroundings.

Papeete, Tahiti
French Polynesia is comprised of over 100 islands and atolls, with Tahiti possibly being the most famous thanks to its soaring peaks, lush valleys,cascading waterfalls and stunning vistas. The bustling city of Papeete is home to the world’s only Pearl Museum and an array of natural treasures including the Faarumai Waterfalls and spring garden of Vaipahi.

Mystery Island, Vanuatu
The origins and history of this beautiful uninhabited island are - as the name would suggest - a mystery. Completely unspoilt, this incredible tropical paradise is barely a kilometre long and just 200 metres wide with stretches of glorious golden beaches, windswept palm trees and a coral reef abundant with thousands of fish, in a deep blue, calm sea.

Sydney, Australia
Sydney, Australia is one of the world's most exciting, must-visit modern cities. Home to the famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House - two of the most iconic structures on Earth - it is easy to understand why Sydney is so highly regarded. A timeless, charming city, you will fall in love with this cosmopolitan metropolis as soon as you step off the ship.

Brisbane, Australia
With its harmonious mix of elegant colonial sandstone structures and modern glass skyscrapers, Brisbane is one of the world's fastest developing cities. Located alongside the beautiful Brisbane River, this friendly, welcoming city has a laid back, vibrant atmosphere and offers an abundance of walks, reserves and barbecue hotspots to enjoy.

Komodo, Indonesia
Tour the Komodo National Park, home to the unique Komodo Dragon – truly exceptional, it’s the world’s largest lizard – as well as dozens of other rare species. The surrounding seas have extensive coral reefs, mangrove swamps and sea-grass beds home to sharks, dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles and whales.

Goa, India
The tiny State of Goa is renowned for its superb beaches and colonial history. Combining the best of Indian and Portuguese culture, Goa is both a classic beach resort and a sightseeing delight, with a mix of scenic beauty and architectural delights, from golden sandy beaches and spice plantations to striking temples and bustling markets.

Khasab, Oman
The small, yet energetic Omani city of Khasab is a melting pot of sights and highlights, from charming old souks and historic castles, to bustling modern markets and a lively harbour. It’s also the gateway to the stunning waterways and islands of the Musandam fjords – the ‘Norway of Arabia’.

Aqaba, Jordan
Aqaba is the starting point for tours to the world-famous stone-city of Petra. Explore massive tombs, which were carved from the sandstone hills more than 2,000 years ago or discover the history of Jordan at the Aqaba Castle, housing a collection of Islamic artefacts.

Kusadasi
Beautiful sandy beaches and clear blue waters feature at Turkey’s main holiday resorts.

Gibraltar
Dominated by 'the Rock', a towering 1,396 ft sentinel that guards the Straits, Gibraltar is a pretty, British-controlled territory with a distinctly familiar atmosphere. With helmeted policemen and British institutions such as Marks & Spencer, Gibraltar feels like a home from home, a little slice of Great Britain with a glorious Mediterranean climate.
