Once the voyage is over, you can always stay for a few days before flying back home.

Dining will also be a globe-trotting experience as you may well decide to eat Oriental while in the Caribbean or Italian while in the Gulf! Not forgetting the chance to savour local dishes in all the ports you decide to visit, on your own or as part of our planned excursions.

Pools, Aqua Parks, theatres, night clubs, shopping arcades, sport centres and so much more will keep you entertained every moment of the day.
