The itinerary

Day 2Daylight transit of Panama Canal

Cartagena's magnificent city walls and fortresses, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, enclose a well-restored historic center (the Cuidad Amurallada, or walled city) with plazas, churches, museums, and shops that have made it a lively coastal vacation spot for South Americans and others. New hotels and restaurants make the walled city a desirable place to stay, and the formerly down-at-the-heels Getsemaní neighborhood attracts those seeking a bohemian buzz. The historic center is a small section of Cartagena; many hotels are in the Bocagrande district, an elongated peninsula where high-rise hotels overlook a long, gray-sand beach.When it was founded in 1533 by Spanish conquistador Pedro de Heredia, Cartagena was the only port on the South American mainland. Gold and silver looted from indigenous peoples passed through here en route to Spain and attracted pirates, including Sir Francis Drake, who in 1586 torched 200 buildings. Cartagena's walls protected the city's riches as well as the New World's most important African slave market.

Oranjestad, Aruba's capital, is easily explored on foot. Its palm-lined central thoroughfare runs between old and new pastel-painted buildings of typical Dutch design (Spanish influence is also evident in some of the architecture). There are a lot of malls with boutiques and shops—the Renaissance mall carries high-end luxury items and designer fashions. A massive renovation in downtown has given Main Street (a.k.a. Caya G. F. Betico Croes) a whole new lease on life: boutique malls, shops, and restaurants have opened next to well-loved family-run businesses. Stroll along the boardwalk from the city centre to the Palm Beach area of Aruba, filled with resorts, restaurants, nightclubs and more. Cruise ships dock at Aruba Port Authority, around a 10 minute walk from the centre of Oranjestad.

Dutch settlers came here in the 1630s, about the same time they sailed through the Verazzano Narrows to Manhattan, bringing with them original red-tile roofs, first used on the trade ships as ballast and later incorporated into the architecture of Willemstad. Much of the original colonial structures remain, but this historic city is constantly reinventing itself and the government monument foundation is always busy restoring buildings in one urban neighborhood or another. The salty air causes what is called "wall cancer" which causes the ancient abodes to continually crumble over time. The city is cut in two by Santa Anna Bay. On one side is Punda (the point)—crammed with shops, restaurants, monuments, and markets and a new museum retracing its colorful history. And on the other side is Otrobanda (literally meaning the "other side"), with lots of narrow, winding streets and alleyways (called "steekjes" in Dutch), full of private homes notable for their picturesque gables and Dutch-influenced designs.

Day 7At Sea

Puerto Plata is the oldest city in the north of the Dominican Republic and is nestled between towering mountains and the vast expanse of the ocean. The booming cruise market has led to major revitalisation works in the downtown area of the city and the lively pier, known as the Malecón. A must-do activity is riding the cable car up Monte Isabel de Torres which offers unrivalled panoramic views 792 metres above sea level, alternatively enjoy a guided tour of Charcos de Damajagua to hike through lush forests and beautiful flora before reaching a range of 27 waterfalls and canyons to slide and jump into the turqoise waters below. For something a little more relaxing, why not head to Sosua Beach to take in the stunning transparent waters.

Day 9At Sea

Miami is the cruise capital of the world, catering to over 5.5 million cruise passengers every year from most major cruise lines, including Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Norwegian, MSC and more. The city is also one of the world’s most popular holiday spots for tourists in North America and beyond. From its superstar beaches, to its rich multi-cultural heritage, from spa days and shops galore, to world famous cuban restaurants and hedonistic nightlife – Miami is a multicultural city that has something to offer to everyone.
