The top sights are clustered in Midtown Manhattan — from your Times Square hotel you can easily see Grand Central Terminal, shop on Fifth Avenue, and see the twinkling lights of Broadway all in the same day.
Discover the unmistakable charm and flavor of the Crescent City. Take a little time to explore the French Quarter — romantic as ever, with restaurants serving up heaping helpings of savory Creole cuisine, and nightclubs and street musicians playing the kind of jazz that gets your toes tapping.
The ship itself is a unique experience with a great variety of activities, restaurants, and bars, such as the RedFrog Rum Bar and the BlueIguana Tequila Bar.
Entertainment options are all up and down the ship, as is water-based fun, from the heart-racing water slide action at WaterWorks to the soul-soothing Thalassotherapy pool at the Cloud 9 Spa.
Cruise to Mahogany Bay and you’ll feel like you won the island lottery. With silky-sand beaches and diamond-clear seas, the island of Roatan is one of the Caribbean’s hidden gems. And there’s no better way to experience this natural paradise than on a cruise to Honduras. The largest of Honduras’s Bay Islands is a real beauty, built on a backbone of volcanic rock and ringed by the world’s second largest coral reef.
There are plenty of reasons why a cruise to Belize should top your travel bucket list. A tropical paradise that promises adventure, both onshore and off? You better Belize it!

And they’re all yours to explore when you take a cruise to Belize, where surprises await around every corner, including underwater.
Cozumel is proof that Mexico can do ‘island flavor’ with the best of the Caribbean. It may not be the biggest island in the sea, but Cozumel offers a huge variety of things to do, see, taste and explore. This island just happens to be perched atop a coral reef, which promises hours of snorkeling or scuba diving fun. Cruises to Cozumel dock at the island’s heart — just minutes from San Miguel’s seafront shops and the white sand beach at Chankanaab National Park.
