  12:00am Cozumel, Mexico
Located 12 miles off the southern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel is known as the gem of the Mexican Caribbean. Perhaps its name reflects the fact that its temperate, crystal clear waters range in jewel tones from stunning turquoise to deep indigo.

  12:00am Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
In the surreal world of the Costa Rican rainforest, the tropical hothouse environment pushes life into a constant state of fast forward. Plants live on air, not soil. Orchids instruct insects where to land. Puerto Limon, on the Caribbean coast is a gateway to all that bio-fantasia. There are national parks, refuges, and reserves in all directions, from the coast to the jungled mountains to the volcanic parks on the road to San Jose. Closer to town, highlights for cruise visitors include Playa Bonita beach, a couple miles from down-town, and a panga-boat ride along the Tortuguero Canal, which encompasses more than 100 miles of waterways along the coast.

  12:00am Colon, Panama
Colon is the second largest city in Panama, situated on the Atlantic coast at the Caribbean end of the Panama Canal. It was made a duty-free port in 1953 and is the world's largest Free Trade Zone outside Hong Kong. The colourful history of this Caribbean province is shaped by stories of scavenging pirates lurking in these waters, and gold rush 49ers braving the Panama jungles to seek riches in California. Today, tourists are the bargain hunters in Colon, and there is great shopping and savings to be explored.

  12:00am Cartagena, Colombia
This modern and bustling city, seaport and commercial centre still boasts much of its original Spanish colonial architecture. Explore this beautiful and historic city's walled Old Town. Its fortress walls, quaint, narrow streets and balconied houses are all vivid reminders of its former colonialists. The city's numerous monasteries, plazas and noble mansions are significant links to this region's grand past.

  12:00am Willemstad, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles
Curacao boasts a landscape that is dramatic, stark, and volcanic. In contrast, Willemstad, the capital, seems a cozy Dutch haven with its neat row houses. And while those gabled and tiled roofs illustrate the island's heritage, the bright, pastel houses speak pure Caribbean. Islanders themselves reflect this same colourful contrast: over 50 different nationalities have come to call Curacao their home.

  12:00am Bridgetown, Barbados
In the capital and cruise port, Bridgetown, there are intriguing signs of its British colonial past while, across the island, you are really spoilt for choice. You can enjoy every watersport under the sun; stunning nature walks and bike rides; or maybe a trip to the uniquely magnificent Harrisons Cave underground complex of caverns, waterfalls, stalactites and stalagmites.

  12:00am Castries, Saint Lucia
One of the major tourist areas in St. Lucia, Castries is a port of call for cruise ships. Cruise ships dock at Pointe Seraphine, to the north of the harbour which is also a duty free shopping centre. A taxi service is readily available to take visitors on tours of the rest of the country or the city. There is also a water taxi available to take passengers from there to the city as well.

  12:00am Basseterre, Saint Kitts and Nevis
Its capital may be French in name, but St Kitts, along with neighbouring Nevis, is actually the Caribbean's oldest British colony. We stop at beautiful Basseterre, whose Georgian centrepiece is the Circus, modelled on Piccadilly, with its charming Victorian clock. This scenic island looks simply stunning from the Fortress of Brimstone Hill. Volcanic slopes, verdant sugar cane and neighbouring islands are on view.

  12:00am St John's, Antigua and Barbuda
Famously dusted with pristine white sands and pulsating to the rhythm of steel drums, Antigua is a real Caribbean treat. From the bustling little port of St. Johns, take an excursion across the rolling countryside to Shirley Heights, a fortress dominating the entry to English Harbour, and historic Nelson's dockyard. Today the warehouses are filled with shops and restaurants, and the sails belong to international yachts.

  12:00am Philipsburg, St Maarten, Netherlands Antilles
The French and the Dutch signed a treaty in 1648 that divided the island between them. The two sides have distinct cultural characteristics and they spell the island's name differently, but it's their differences that add to the charm of this Caribbean hideaway - not to mention some of the most amazing cuisine in the world.

Surrounded by the blue Atlantic, the Azores bring you a chain of nine spectacular islands that will capture your senses like few other places can. Often described as the tip of the lost continent of Atlantis, this picturesque countryside is incredibly fertile and supports a dazzling variety of flowers and natural vegetation. The warm climate and ample rainfall sustain a bustling agriculture that often brings farmers three or four crops per year.

  12:00am La Coruna, Spain
With La Coruna's impressive and extensive history, visitors are often surprised at how modern the city is. It was from here that, in 1588, Spain sent its "invincible" Armada sailing. A year later, Sir Francis Drake sent those ships scrambling, burning most of the city just for good measure. In the process, La Coruna lost all of its Roman antiquities, including the Torre de Hercules, the present day monument was totally covered over by brick. The city does, however, still offer incredible vistas, situated as it is on an outstretch of land blanketed on each side by the sea.
