Oranjestad, Aruba
Being one of the Dutch Antilles, Aruba still retains its Dutch charm. You will notice this when you see the many windmills that are to be found in the island. Aruba is characterised by fine beaches, sapphire blue waters, almost year-round sunshine and exotic cactus. In the capital Oranjestad, admire the pastel coloured houses and the palm-lined streets. Then go snorkelling and discover the incredible coral formation and tropical fish. Other highlights include gold mine ruins in the countryside, Guadirikiri Caves and the fascinating natural limestone bridge. If you like shopping, you’ll love Aruba and its fabulous shops and outdoor markets.

4 Willemstad, Curacao
Willemstad, Curacao
Curacao is one of the Dutch Antilles. This is reflected in the Dutch cuisine served in the island’s restaurants and in the Dutch-style houses of the capital Willemstad. Here shopping is superb…the ‘Floating Market’ alongside the canal is well worth checking out. You will find anything from tropical fruits and vegetables to local handicrafts. Visit the dramatic Hato Caves, a series of grottos with underground waterfalls and ancient Indian petroglyphs, or explore the spectacular Curacao Sea Aquarium, where you will see around 400 exotic species of marine life. Dive in the sapphire blue waters near the beautiful coral reef and experience feeding turtles and stingrays. Then discover Curacao’s Ostrich Farm, where you will see how the ostrich develops from an egg to the largest bird in the world. Before you leave the island, you must try the famous Curacao’s fruity liqueur.

Kralendijk, Bonaire
One of the Dutch Antilles, Bonaire is known for the preservation of nature and the marine environment. This makes it perfect for snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing and kayaking. But Bonaire is not only a diver’s paradise, it has something for everybody. If you are a nature lover, you can cycle and immerse yourself in the unspoilt natural landscape. The island offers a fantastic climate, crystal clear waters and year-round sunshine. Even though Bonaire is laid back and slower paced, the nightlife here is amazing. Get to meet the local people, you will find them very warm and friendly. Don’t miss out on the local cuisine in one of the many world-class restaurants of the island. If you’re looking for cool Bonairean art, jewellery or souvenirs, there’s a main shopping avenue with stores that sell unique merchandise, some made by local craftsmans.

A first cruise for my husband and I. We absolutely loved it, from the lovely cabin with balcony to the food and service, we couldn't fault it. Sad to disembark. I just hope we can save enough to venture on another cruise next year.

Just returned from a 7 day cruise to Norway. I cannot speak highly enough of this cruise and the value for money it offers. Everything from the staff to the food and entertainment was absolutely wonderful. We upgraded to the specialty restaurants and the food was absolutely superb. The Captain Peter Harris was the most lovely person so down to earth and pleasant when on a trip to the Bridge he made it very enjoyable. The spa was beautiful too. Anyone who finds fault with this ship and its staff is too picky
