San Juan, Puerto Rico
If you associate Puerto Rico's capital with the colonial streets of Old San Juan, then you know only part of the picture. San Juan is a major metropolis, radiating out from the bay on the Atlantic Ocean that was discovered by Juan Ponce de León. More than a third of the island's nearly 4 million citizens proudly call themselves sanjuaneros. The city may be rooted in the past, but it has its eye on the future. Locals go about their business surrounded by colonial architecture and towering modern structures. By 1508 the explorer Juan Ponce de León had established a colony in an area now known as Caparra, southeast of present-day San Juan.

St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands
If you fly to the 32-square-mile (83-square-km) island of St. Thomas, you land at its western end; if you arrive by cruise ship, you come into one of the world's most beautiful harbors. Either way, one of your first sights is the town of Charlotte Amalie. From the harbor you see an idyllic-looking village that spreads into the lower hills. If you were expecting a quiet hamlet with its inhabitants hanging out under palm trees, you've missed that era by about 300 years. Although other islands in the USVI developed plantation economies, St. Thomas cultivated its harbor, and it became a thriving seaport soon after it was settled by the Danish in the 1600s.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles
St. Martin/St. Maarten: one tiny island, just 37 square miles (96 square km), with two different accents and ruled by two sovereign nations. Here French and Dutch have lived side by side for hundreds of years, and when you cross from one country to the next there are no border patrols, no customs agents. In fact, the only indication that you have crossed a border at all is a small sign and a change in road surface. St. Martin/St. Maarten epitomizes tourist islands in the sun, where services are well developed but there's still some Caribbean flavor. The Dutch side is ideal for people who like plenty to do. The French side has a more genteel ambience, more fashionable shopping, and a Continental flair.

Gustavia, St Barts
Hilly St. Barthélemy, popularly known as St. Barth (or St. Barts) is just 8 square miles (21 square km), but the island has at least 20 good beaches. What draws visitors is its sophisticated but unstudied approach to relaxation: the finest food, excellent wine, high-end shopping, and lack of large-scale commercial development. A favorite among upscale cruise-ship passengers, who also appreciate the shopping opportunities and fine dining, St. Barth isn't really equipped for mega-ship visits, which is why most ships calling here are from smaller premium lines. This is one place where you don't need to take the ship's shore excursions to have a good time.
Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands
The bustling capital of the BVI looks out over Road Harbour. It takes only an hour or so to stroll down Main Street and along the waterfront, checking out the traditional West Indian buildings painted in pastel colors and with corrugated-tin roofs, bright shutters, and delicate fretwork trim. For sightseeing brochures and the latest information on everything from taxi rates to ferry schedules, stop in at the BVI Tourist Board office. Or just choose a seat on one of the benches in Sir Olva Georges Square, on Waterfront Drive, and watch the people come and go from the ferry dock and customs office across the street.
Neither pretty nor quaint, La Romana has a central park, an interesting market, a couple of good restaurants, banks and small businesses, a public beach, and Jumbo, a major supermarket. If you are staying for a week or more you may want to buy a Dominican cell phone at Jumbo. It’s a mere $20 for a basic one, plus minutes. It can save you untold money if you'll be making local calls from your hotel/resort. It is, at least, a real slice of Dominican life. Casa de Campo is just outside La Romana, and other resorts are found in the vicinity of nearby Bayahibe. Although there are now more resorts in the area, this 7,000-acre luxury enclave put the town on the map.

Falmouth, Jamaica
The bustle of this resort town's fishing harbor, yachting center, and commercial port only adds to its charm. In the 18th century Falmouth was the main mail-boat port for North America, and in Flushing, a village across the inlet, you can see the slate-covered houses built by prosperous mail-boat captains. A ferry service now links the two towns. On Custom House Quay, off Arwenack Street, is the King's Pipe, an oven in which seized contraband was burned.
George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
The largest of the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman, is one of the Caribbean's favourite getaways, particularly for watersports lovers. The Caymans fully deserve their reputation as a paradise for divers: Translucent waters and a colourful variety of marine life are protected by the government, which has designated a number of marine parks. Several shipwrecks add to the underwater attractions and the number of professional diving companies outrank those in any other Caribbean island. Diving is not the only sport here; visitors can engage in numerous other watersports, in addition to golf and tennis.

Key West, Florida, United States of America
Situated 150 miles from Miami, 90 miles from Havana, and an immeasurable distance from sanity, this end-of-the-line community has never been like anywhere else. Even after it was connected to the rest of the country—by the railroad in 1912 and by the highway in 1938—it maintained a strong sense of detachment. Key West reflects a diverse population: Conchs (natives, many of whom trace their ancestry to the Bahamas), freshwater Conchs (longtime residents who migrated from somewhere else years ago), Hispanics (primarily descendants of Cuban immigrants), recent refugees from the urban sprawl of mainland Florida, military personnel, and an assortment of vagabonds, drifters, and dropouts in search of refuge.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States of America
Like many southeast Florida neighbors, Fort Lauderdale has long been revitalizing. In a state where gaudy tourist zones often stand aloof from workaday downtowns, Fort Lauderdale exhibits consistency at both ends of the 2-mile Las Olas corridor. The sparkling look results from upgrades both downtown and on the beachfront. Matching the downtown's innovative arts district, cafés, and boutiques is an equally inventive beach area, with hotels, cafés, and shops facing an undeveloped shoreline, and new resort-style hotels replacing faded icons of yesteryear. Despite wariness of pretentious overdevelopment, city leaders have allowed a striking number of glittering high-rises.

Welcome to the holidays in Puerto Rico. In Puerto Rico, this is the happiest time of the year, celebrations begin in late November and extend to January, which makes it of the longest Holiday Seasons in the world.   There is a joyful spirit that blends in with the solemn religious mood characteristic of these festivities.


This delightful tour allows you to visit Old San Juan and all its Christmas traditions. See the beautiful bright red flowers called "Pascua's" and the green trees that decorate our pathways. During your walk, your tour guide will explain how old Christmas songs called Aguinaldo's, villancicos and parrandas have become an important part of the island's tradition.  Learn about unique and important instruments passed through the generations, like the guiro, cuatro and maracas.  Arrive to the Street of Christ to visit the Cathedral of San Juan and learn about our famous "misa de Gallo" held at midnight on Christmas Eve.


You might see a great variety of handmade wooden carved Three Kings, representing the Epiphany on January 6. This is a great opportunity to take home a unique souvenir.

And what are the holidays without great food? You will be able to sample traditional Puerto Rican Christmas fare, paired with wine.

This unique tour will allow you to get a sense of Puerto Rico, during one of its busiest and happiest season.

Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking. Some surfaces may be cobbled and uneven ground may be encountered. This tour is note suitable for those who have limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair.

Spend the day discovering and tasting one of San Juan's most famous products- Bacardi Rum.


Your tour begins with a transfer to the south side of San Juan Harbor, where you will enter the beautifully manicured grounds of the Bacardí Rum Distillery, the world's largest distiller of natural spirits.  Upon arrival, you will be escorted to your classroom for a private Rum Mixology Seminar led by your Bacardi Brand Specialist, a Master in Rum.  For the next 45 minutes to an hour, the conference speaker will lead your group in the preparation and understanding how each of the signature cocktails is created - typically Bacardi Cuba Libre, Bacardi Mojito and a Bacardi Flavors Drink are presented and prepared, though this is subject to change. Each participant will be standing and acting as bartender and at the end will receive a Bacardi University Rum Mixology Certificate, and a $10 Gift Certificate for use in Casa Bacardi, the Brand Merchandise Store.


Following the seminar, you will continue to the interior patio of the Bacardi Visitor's Center.  After passing through a large room containing a fountain and three large prints with historical representations, you will enter the theater and view a short film covering the Bacardí Family history as well as that of the Bacardí Corporation. You will then enter a replica of an old distillery that houses an excellent display; here your guide will provide commentary and answer questions.  And you will have the opportunity to smell that final product; you will enjoy the aroma of the different type of rums that are bottled at Bacardí.


Your tour will continue to the Bacardí cocktail lounge, which resembles a 1920's bar in Cuba (the era of the prohibition).  A bartender will explain and show you how to prepare the first three cocktails ever made with Bacardí:  "Cuba Libre", "Daiquiri" and "Mojito Cubano", and you'll learn what inspired Bacardí in the preparation of these three cocktails as well as how they got their names.


As you exit, you will board an open-air tram who will take you to the open-air pavilion, where you will be treated to complimentary rum drinks.  Adjacent to the pavilion is the Casa Bacardí gift shop where one can purchase Bacardí Rum as well as many other Bacardí products.

Get ready for an experience like no other; you are about to FLY on this exciting adventure.


The Original Canopy Tour operates in La Marquesa Forestry Reserve, which is owned by the Municipality of Guaynabo. This 890-acre (360-hectare) property is located about 20 minutes southwest of San Juan.  

The company that operates this tour has 12 years of experience and operates in 5 different locations.  Safety is number one and their guides receive 200 hours of training prior to commencing work with the public.  The tour consists of 8 traverses and 10 platforms that allow the guests to swing from tree to tree on a safe double line system that is so easy to learn that a 15-minute explanation is enough to get anybody started.


Upon arrival, you have a twenty minute period to sign the waiver, use the restrooms and get geared up. Gear consists of a harness, a set of gloves and a helmet, plus a variety of buckles and straps that the guides attach to the harness.


Then the adventure begins when you board a trolley or funicular to advance you to the commencing area. Walk up a short but steep hill to embark on a narrow, graveled trail that slowly leads you uphill. After approximately ten minutes, arrive at the first platform, a nice wooden deck that accommodates groups of up to 10 for a detailed demonstration of the procedures.  After listening to a brief explanation of the system, key instructions and positions, the guide will ask for the first brave volunteer to step up and away into the forest.


Glide from platform to platform enjoying a bird's eye view of the forest while at the same time enjoying the rush of gliding, falling, and flying, through the trees. A lush tropical landscape is the backdrop for this activity as you soar through the treetops. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that definitely allows you to enjoy Puerto Rico from a different perspective.


Upon completion of the canopy course, return to base and re-join your transfer for the return ride to the ship's pier.


Please note:  This tour involves moderate to extensive activity and is for guests in good physical condition.  Guests must be able to hike on a natural trail for 15 minutes and have the ability to climb stairs.  Guests who suffer from acrophobia or vertigo should not plan on participating in this tour.  The minimum age for participants is 12 with a maximum weight for any participants of 270 pounds (122 kilograms).  All participants must complete a waiver prior to participating.  We suggest wearing shorts or long pants, sun protection and bring a hip-sack or backpack to keep your personal items as your hands must remain free during the zip.

The entire area is a bird sanctuary and holds claim to being the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System. Thanks to receiving 100 billion gallons of rain per year, the forest is able to sustain some 250 species of trees, 50 types of ferns and as many as 20 varieties of wild orchids. In addition to the flora and fauna, El Yunque is also home to an array of Puerto Rican wildlife.


El Portal

Your rainforest visit includes a stop at El Portal, the modern and airy visitor's centre constructed to blend into the natural surroundings. Inside, the exhibit space is devoted to explaining the importance of tropical forests.


Baño Grande Hiking Trail

Continue with photo stops at La Coca Falls and the Yokahu Lookout Tower, then explore the rainforest in depth on a nature hike accompanied by your driver/guide. The low-impact 25-minute walk on the Baño Grande Hiking Trail allows for an unforgettable hands-on experience. Beginning at the Palo Colorado Information Centre, the trail passes the Baño Grande, a large man-made pool, then enters the Palo Colorado forest, one of four forest types in El Yunque Rainforest. Stop to see an example of the work that the Forest Service has done to help conserve the Puerto Rican Parrot, cross a picturesque stream, and exit the trail at another Information Centre.


After this invigorating walk, board your transport for the return journey to the ship.
