Day 5 - Funchal, Madeira

Funchal has a deep harbour that takes visitors right into the middle of the city, which sits in a natural amphitheatre ringed by mountains. Explore the historic heart with its sun-bleached buildings, monuments and museums, or perhaps relax at a pavement café with a glass of Madeira wine.

Spirit of Discovery

Day 12 - Bridgetown, Barbados

Long renowned as the ultimate beach destination, Barbados is a paradise of long sandy bays and exotic flowers. The old colonial architecture of Bridgetown, the island’s capital, has a distinctively British feel from its time as part of the British Empire. Perhaps take an exciting tram ride into the heart of the haunting Harrison’s Cave or follow nature trails to discover tropical sights.

Spirit of Discovery

Day 13 - Portsmouth, Dominica

Dominica is a mountainous haven of tropical forests, trickling rivers, bubbling springs and even a boiling lake! Portsmouth is the second largest town on the island, but with less than 3,000 residents, it retains the slow pace of life that the Caribbean is famous for. Perhaps opt to spot rare birds on a scenic drive through the botanical gardens or enjoy a wooden row boat trip along the Indian River.

Spirit of Discovery

Day 14 - Philipsburg, St Maarten

The French and Dutch share the pretty island of St Maarten. Its capital, Philipsburg, lies on the Dutch side and features many charming pastel-coloured colonial houses. Thrill seekers will love to take on the Flying Dutchman, one of the world’s steepest zip lines.

Spirit of Discovery

Day 15 - San Juan, Puerto Rico

We will dock right beneath the old walls of San Juan, the country’s capital, watched over by UNESCO-listed El Morro Fortress. San Juan retains many quaint neighbourhoods of cobblestone streets and beautiful buildings. Be sure to visit the Spanish colonial cathedral which dates back 1521.

Spirit of Discovery

Day 16 - 17 - At sea

Spirit of Discovery

Day 18 - Key West, USA

Cruise to the tropical Florida Keys, a series of coral islands connected by the magnificent Seven Mile Bridge. Perhaps discover coral reefs teeming with sharks, sea turtles and stingrays on a glass-bottomed boat tour, or take to the skies above Key West on a helicopter trip.

Spirit of Discovery

Day 19 - Miami

Today, Spirit of Discovery arrives in balmy Miami. This year-round holiday resort is blessed with miles of sun-kissed beaches and has a relaxed Latin vibe. The 800 pastel-hued buildings of the art deco district along South Beach and Miami Beach typify the colourful spirit of the city. Discover the lively sidewalk cafés, bars and boutiques; perhaps join a sightseeing cruise to see the waterfront mansions of Millionaire’s Row; or join a thrilling airboat safari in Everglades National Park, a one-and-a-half million acre wetland, to spot alligators.

Spirit of Discovery

Day 20 - Christmas Eve - Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral is home to parks, beaches and a fabulous waterfront. It’s also famous for the Kennedy Space Center which showcases everything from moon dust to space suits and the Astronaut Hall of Fame. You can also visit the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Day 23 - 24 - New York

One of the world’s most exciting cities, New York’s skyscrapers, yellow cabs and legendary sights are sure to leave a lasting impression.
