One of the best Mediterranean itineraries is the 12-night Venice Cruise. With only three days spent at sea, this cruise is jam-packed with destinations to be discovered. After setting sail from Barcelona, you will call at Dubrovnik, Venice, Montenegro, Naples, Rome, Florence and Provence. Make sure you pre-book the Uffizi gallery to avoid long queues during your time in Florence, and take time to sample the world famous Grom gelato before hitting the Renaissance city’s many boutiques.
The 11-night Ultimate Caribbean Cruise sets sail from Florida’s Fort Lauderdale and takes just one day to arrive at the tropical paradise of Grand Cayman. Other ports of call include Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Belize and Mexico, for a real taste of the exoticism of Central America. Whilst in Belize, make sure you take advantage of the world class snorkelling and scuba diving for a glimpse of what life is like beneath the ocean waves.
