• Barcelona

    Barcelona (along with the rest of Spain) was a gem hidden from the rest of the world under the dictatorship of General Franco who ruled between 1939 and his death in 1975. It only really came to the attention of the media after Barcelona won the privilege of hosting the 1992 Olympic Games. It was then that the architecture, style, culture and grace of this Catalan city took the world by storm. Prior to this, it had been an industrial area with a pleasant climate and well-kept secrets of its magnificence until it was unveiled to the world. Time spent in this splendid city will leave you contented and at the same time brimming with desire to return - again and again.

  • Venice from Brilliance of the Seas

    Venice

    Billed as one of the most romantic cities on the globe, Venice is part of a group of 118 man-made islands built on closely stacked wooded piles made mostly from alder trees and separated by canals and linked by bridges. Formerly famed for its glass, lace and silk it’s a city of carnival, masks, architecture and most famous of all, the black gondola.


    An enchanting destination, Venice has kept abreast of change, welcoming over 1.7 million cruise ship visitors a year and there’s something there here for everybody. Oozing culture from every pore, you can visit galleries, museums, marble churches, and the great Doge’s palace or drink fine coffee on Piazza San Marco.


    Venice is a world in one city offering high-end merchandise, unique entertainment and it’s all easily accessible on foot, so pack your walking shoes and camera and prepare yourself for one of the most memorable sail-ins you’ll ever experience.
